ADDITIONAL UPDATE: Support for Google Voice ended May 15, 2014. This means that talkatone now uses it’s own servers rather than relying on Google.
UPDATE: It could be due to better multitasking on different mobile operating systems, but this issue has been largely resolved and for the most part texting is fairly responsive.
I’ve been very happy with using talkatone over vtok. The biggest drawback to Talkatone has been the poor handling of text messaging. I’m able to get all text messages but most times I have to refresh the message screen in order to get new ones. It’s an odd issue because calls come in 100% of the time (unless the app is a 4+ back on the multitasking list). If anyone has had any success with the issue I’d love to hear about a fix!
