Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.net goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why ApkClean.net can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.net, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

User's Reivew

4 ★This has been one of my favorite apps for awhile now. But lately the ads have become overwhelming. They pop up in the middle of phone calls and cut off my calls. Im trying to give it a chance because I do enjoy this app but Im very close to switching. i dont mind ads but I cant always afford to pay for all the extras and when the ads start interfering with the quality of the app then maybe its time to switch.
1 ★GARABAGE APP, DONT EVEN BOTHER! I dont even know where to start with this ridiculous app. It freezes, won't let you decline calls, constantly dropped calls, and it even affects your phone's performance! Not to mention it seems to have a delayed response when trying to text people. I've updated this app over and over and no kater how "improved" they claim each update to be, its STILL A PAIN IN THE BUTT! I've been a customer for 10 yrs, not anymore! Good Bye TextNow!
5 ★This app was a God send for me; it came at a moment that I needed to have a fast and hassled free communication device. It was very easy to install and start operating from the get go. It has never given me problem to use it and the communication is of first class. Thank you guys for such convenient opportunity. God bless you for it.
4 ★Best calling/texting app that I've used thus far. Not impressed with the camera though, it's strictly no frills so pics are grainy, even with a Galaxy S8. Purchased the monthly premium and those annoying gif images still pop up while texting. Would be nice to have a favorite contacts list, in order to block other callers. I've had to block over 100 robocalls, pretty ridiculous. With a few tweaks, this app would be 5 star for sure.
2 ★my experience was fine until they started let allowing these pop-ups the pop up and cover your sentence that you're typing that breaks your concentration about every 15 seconds and puts you in a wonderful mood. if I could find another app that would work good at all I would change to that app just to avoid all these stupid little pop-ups.
5 ★Informative app regarding phone number reassignment. Great messaging and organized app. 100% free as advertised given I have mobile data or Wifi. Great tool for anyone looking to communicate better and without worry for an extra phone bill. Reliable, only takes a valid email to set up with so you can confirm your account, and a personal password for your account that is independent to the site. I always reccomend this to people who have any device but no phone plan. Wonderful app and website.
5 ★I have been using textnow for a few days and it is awesome. You really can make unlimited phone calls and texts with great audio and great service. Some says it's"too good to be true". Believe me, it's true. Textnow is still working over and above anyones expectations. You will be fully satisfied.
2 ★It's kind of poor. The app closes because I want to go into notifications. The app doesn't notify with any sound for texts and calls. It doesn't show pop up for text boxes and I can't change or do anything about it, because the app won't let me inside the notifications tab to fix these things....
5 ★Have had this for several months now. I really have no negatives at this point. I even receive business calls on this app overseas and my customers don't know I am out of the country. It delivers on all its promises and there's a little ad barely noticeable when am texting...download it for a second line and don't look back.
2 ★The app is great for wifi. Main issue; it's a data hog. Even with all preventive background data precautions enabled, it'll use 8gb easy every data cycle. Secondary issue; not allowing the app background data permission causes no notification of incoming text. Also wouldn't allow incoming calls to be answered, although phone would ring. 4 stars for the app., minus 2 stars for being a data hog, equals a 2 star rating. Honest user!
4 ★Terrible for phone calls. Even standing right next to the Wifi router it cuts out so much a conversation is impossible. It's frankly embarrassing to use. Only good for texting which you can do with many other apps that contain no ads. **UPDATE **Since the developer has gotten back to me with a possible solution, the app is working much better now and I have increased from 1 star to 4 stars. The calls are now clear and never cut out once. Thank you text TextNow.
4 ★This app is great for when u have no other way to communicate.... I use it often ... only thing that is a lil annoying is the lagging of the calls an they drop at times ... an sometimes the app gets stuck an I can't answer my calls. But doesn't happen often so still I give it a 4 .... if these problems didn't happen at all I'd rate a 5....
