TextNow for Mac is a streamlined social messenger and SMS/call client developed by TextNow Inc. for macOS. Built from the ground up to streamline the process of sending and receiving SMS messages directly on the desktop of your home, school, or work Mac, this app managed to quickly attract a large audience by offering incredibly attractive deals with no hidden catches.

Simply put, the TextNow app allows unlimited SMS texts to the phone numbers located in the United States and Canada. And if that is not enough, the app has built-in support for adding funds that will be spent on international messages using a low-cost pricing structure that is much more affordable than the ones offered by modern mobile operators.

TextNow for macOS, not to be mistaken with another app from the same developer - “TextNow - Unlimited Texts + Calls” which offers a more modern interface and few additional features.

Users are required only to click on the large “Get” button and wait a bit while this fairly sizeable app is being downloaded and prepared for first use. Users are recommended to have at least 150MB of free space for this app, but it is worth noting that the size of this app will grow with time because of the caching of multimedia files and contact data. The apps require permission to access local files, peripheral input devices, other apps and to modify the Registry database.

Works on your computer and lets you text from a 10 digit number in the US & Canada.

You can send as many texts and picture messages as you want - FREE!

Make unlimited free phone calls to any phone number in the US & Canada!

The user interface of TextNow Unlimited Texts + Calls is as simple as possible, featuring a nicely formatted list of contacts and a large chat window where SMS messages can be managed. Each text message is clearly labeled by color (blue for the current user, and grey for the distant contact), with the timestamp for each message.

In addition to text entry, users can also send photos and images. Even though this app lacks some of the useful features found in its competitors, it can still easily serve users who simply don’t want to complicate their life with unneeded tools.

TextNow for Mac can be used for free, offering new users even a brand-new US-based phone number where they can be contacted by any mobile phone users from around the world. It is important to note that the free version of TextNow has limitations that can be removed by subscribing to a monthly premium tier of usage. The app can be used on macOS 10.10.0 or later, a 64-bit processor.
