Amazing for Europeans (and for travel), not great in the US  rating of FishText
By: cemregr - Sep 20, 2009
Version: 5.01
Bottom line: the US networks are after the money, so they don't let you use this service properly. SMS's appear to come from random numbers if you send to US numbers. So if you're in the US, you might not want this.
But if you're in Europe it works the way it's supposed to. What's the great thing, when you are abroad, you can use wi-fi to send messages for still cheap prices. Or if you get a new number abroad, you can change the sending number in FishText and continue using your old credits. That's very impressive if you travel a lot.


Outstanding App  rating of FishText

Everyone is raving about Fishtext so I would not normally bother to add more praise but, this app has saved me a fortune on my overseas text which, I was robbed by my network supplier, I think I was paying 25p per text... now 1p per text to the Far East, for a service that is just as good, possably better than the standard iphone text service. It stores all your contacts and sent messages on line so you can see them anytime, just login. BRILLIENT well done Fishtext


One of the best apps I have ever downloaded....  rating of FishText
By: Futuremrsquinton - 04-Oct-2009
Version: 5.01
I have one word for this - WOW! :) This app is amazing, so easy to use it's childsplay, yet with a really clear, sharp and well designed interface. It's actually a joy sending texts with this app, and it's so quick, it knocks spots off the amount of time it takes to send a 'normal' SMS. What's even better is that it uses your normal phone number, so the recipient is literally receiving a traditional text from you, and this app has a character counter, so you know exactly how many texts you are sending, and you're told after sending exactly how much it's cost you. It's just so easy and efficient to send a text with this app! You will receive any replies as you would normally do, in your normal SMS inbox, as this app doesn't support receiving replies at the moment, but it's really no different in that way to opening your SMS app to send a text and then closing it again to receive the reply as you'd normally do. And at 2p a text (text credits are bought in bulk via paypal etc), this represents a huge saving on the cost of out-of-allowance texts from o2 (11p), and not only that, its actually better than sending a traditional text. As far as I can see, it's very secure, no spam emails and no ads at the end of your texts, it doesn't use your email to send a text, it actually sends a true text. I'm a textaholic who always runs out of contract texts-if I need extra texts, I will always use this from now on. And your credit never expires either! First class and five stars.


Amazing. 2p UK texts. Great App  rating of FishText
By: N1GHTFALL - 01-Aug-2009
Version: 5.0
Fishtext on iPhone is brilliant. Try it. you get 20p credit to try for free (10 SMS messages). Group sending too. Brilliant. 2p per txt. Stating the obvious but sent messages will not appear in the iPhone SMS conversation but replies will as the reciever gets a normal text from you. If have to be picky then you are limited to sending a single txt to 10 people maximum. Could do with 15 for my group sends but I'm being ultra-picky. Will use this for all my group sends and for all texts once my O2 500 txt allowance is used. 100 texts over would normally cost me over £10. With Fishtext that's just £2. Don't delay.

SMS to friends  rating of FishText
By: tvjohn - 27-Sep-2009
Version: 5.01
Hopefully this will be available as an update, as currently the iPhone app can't receive messages, only send, so if exchanging many messages with a fellow Fishtext user, each message will be chargeable, whereas I believe the windows based phones can exchange messages at no cost.
I also discovered today that "Emoji" characters are not passed through the fishtext network without corruption.
4 stars, because as everyone points out, it's still a good service.


Good, but could do better.  rating of FishText
By: gfwk2 - 11-Aug-2009

Good app, and saves me lots of money on texts to international numbers. But, it could do with some recognition of the '+' prefix for international dialling (e.g. +44123456789 rather than just 44123456789), The website does not have support for iPhones - for instance there is mention of free fishtext to fishtext messaging but the mentioned settings do not appear in the iPhone app. A 'sent' folder would be useful so users can keep track of texts in the app itself. But for ~2p texts, I'm willing to put up with the app as it is.

Great application. Been using web-based Fishtext for a few months and am delighted to see this app. If you send international texts you need this app. It will save you £££! Few requests for features: - Record of sent items - Support for + phone number format - Favourite contacts for quick access - Memory of text if you exit application - Integration with iPhone texts (ha! Yeah, right!)
