Best Windows 8 Apps
17 May 2016
Incoming text messages very slow in coming.

It works fine, but my messages pop out of order on my screen (they don't on my phone) and I was hoping this app would be something like a chat head where I could send messages while staying on the page I'm currently on.

It takes forever to sync my messages from my phone, when it does sync it doesn't sync when I receive a message, the only way I know I have a message is if I just so happen to be near my phone and hear it go off. Another thing it does not sync ALL my contacts leaving me to figure out what number belongs to what person

The app is okay, but it does not always sync all your contacts over, all the messages don't always transfer, and the notifications are spotty at best to notify of a new incoming message. It's a good base, but there's a lot of work to do.

I've only had this thing for a day and a half, but it's already creating swiss-cheese conversations, where only some of the texts actually get downloaded. if I can't get the whole back-and-forth, then I don't see the point of this thing...

I'm glad we finally have this app over the desktop only one. However, it doesn't update, lags behind. Sometimes it shows the newest message on the live tile, but when you go into the app, its not there. I use VZ messages religiously across my devices for personal and work. Need this app tp be as reliable as the android version.

I installed this and it worked great. It synced all my messages and contacts. Then... something happened. All the names and pictures disappeared, so everyone just became a number. Clicking on "Contacts" does nothing. It won't load anything, and acts like it's not a button at all. What happened? And, of course, there's NO SUPPORT that I can find online. Thanks, Verizon.

love being able to use my keyboard to send messages! sync sometimes seems a little slow, and it doesn't copy the names across (why can't it read them from Outlook?)
great app. simple to use and much easier typing on the PC than the phone :)
This app is supposed to work so that it sync's across multiple devices. WELL YOU FAILED! It doesn't work. My Android device has different messages than my windows/iPhone device. Fix this!

This is a great way to be able to check and send messages when away from your phone. Also quite handy to be able to use on multiple PCs and tablets so you never miss a message.

i really like the features this app has
Set up on a 2nd device and it worked nicely on my flight to the west coast over Wifi.
I like to send messages from my pc.

First, this works much better than the desktop Message+ so I am glad Verizon is finally paying a little attention to Windows. However, it just a little slow to start and synch up when you open it and really needs to be able to access your contacts so I can tell who I am messaging with. If they add contact support I will give it one more star. I realize this app is brand new so assuming that they keep updating it in the near future I think it "could" be a great app.

Gives no notifications, doesn't sync all information. Very big lag when scrolling/downloading. The website is faster and smoother than this app.

This app is great for letting me leave my Windows Phone in another room and continue my SMS conversation. However I would like too see a couple features come to this app: I would like to be able to select a dark theme and I would like for it to sync contact pictures with my phone or Facebook.

Some general improvements, in prioritized order:
#1 Ability to dial / receive calls from tablet/PC app
#2 Ability to play / save voicemails from tablet/PC app
#3 Ability to delete messages by right-clicking / tapping Del key (and having these deleted messages clear from other devices as well)
#4 Push notifications when new messages are received
#5 Integration with Windows 10 People & Messaging apps

Worst app ever wont let me use it if i am on another carrier! 0 stars!

Doesn't sync my contacts and doesn't notify me when I have a new message (even though notifications are enabled). Totally pointless.

How to insert Emoji???

please link contacts with the people app

Works great on my Lumina Icon. Thanks Verizon for this app. Please keep improving it. I'd like to see integration with the people app, as all those contacts are the same as my Windows Phone :)
Message+ has had problems with Verizon Backup popups for a while and focus-stealing. This integrates with the Metro message notifications and is much nicer to use. It would be ideal if the app did not require another application to be installed in order to pull in contact data, though. My contacts are already synchronized with an external service, and I have little need to use Verizon's own backup tool just so that my contacts are visible in this application.
I see no integration with win8 people contacts (showing name, etc, when looking at existing messages), and no way to initiate an SMS using this app when clicking SMS from the win8 people contact pane. Give us that, and this app will be golden!
I can see and respond to texts from my computer! very cool!
