We all love chatting with our friends and family but we don't all love those expensive phone bills at the end of the month. The HeyWire Free Texting app gives you a way to chat with friends and family through text, picture messaging, and this haywire free texting app even has a meme and selfie editor that promises not to put a dent in your wallet.
This social networking based app is geared at saving you money without you having to make sacrifices when it comes to socializing with friends and family. As mentioned you're given a U.S. phone number to use to send free texts.
You can send these texts from anywhere in the world. On the flip side, in order for your contact to receive your text they don't have to have the app. Depending on your current plan and your provider you could end up saving yourself hundreds of dollars per year. In order to text you will use LTE, 4G, 3G, or WiFi.
In the app's most recent update a new way to use it was added and that's from your desktop computer. The app itself is free to download and use but there are a number of different in-app purchases. If you want a premium number it is $1.99, you can remove the ads for $5.99 or $2.99, plus you can purchase themes for $0.99 to $1.99.
The app has 3.5 out of five stars from users who like that it is easy to use but there are complaints such as texts not going through, texts taking a very long time to go through, and texts being received in pieces at a time.
Features and Tools
Of course this app seems too good to be true but sure enough you can send picture and text messages from the assigned U.S. phone number for free. The way it can be offered by free is having the app supported by ads.
One thing to keep in mind is that the app uses data to send your messages so you will want to be sure you have a data plan. Additional features of this app include being able to send group texts, make use of the selfie editor so your pictures look perfect, send voice messages by text, edit your photos before sending them, and even add songs to your messages.
