All of sudden, POOF!

3 stars downgradded to 1 star! I have successfully been using the Verizon Messages+ app for about 3 years now without major issues, mostly on my G5 PowerMac. I recently purchased a brand new Mac with all the bells and whistles, because I can, and now the Messages+ app crashes the instant I open it. I’ve tride several differnt angles of attack (i.e. deleting and reinstalling, rebooting.. you know the usual b.s. the sevice techs say to do) and to no avail. When the app begins to open and a screen shows up, it closes itself just as fast. POOF! its gone! As if I never even opened it. Not even a trace of it running by instpecting my activity monitor. It’s just gone. I will claim that I've enjoyed using this app over the years because of convenience. Otherwise I’m stuck on my T9 texting phone and that’s absurd. With the tech we have today why does T9 even still exist? LOL. Anyhow, I’m finidng this very annoying that the desktop app is no longer working for myself. As far as support to obtain answers about my issue, forget it. This is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Verizon you need to fix this. I do wish to continue using the desktop app on my iMac AND you need to give better customer service for app usage. At least tell us that you don’t give a crap rather than just ignoring your customer base by not giving them the means to communicate these issues. Oh well, I’ve said my peace. Good luck to anyone whom is successful in using this app.

I found a workaround for getting the Verizon Message+ app installed on my Windows 10 PC. I went to one of my computers on the my network that has a working copy of the app. I right clicked on the Verizon Message appmoreshare. It opens the app in the Microsoft Store with a share screen, dismiss the screen and next to the launch click the. Message+ - how do I download the app on PC? If you want to download the software on your pc or mac, you could either first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for the app OR you can easily use any of the download links we provided above under the 'Download and Install' header section to download the application.

With Messages for Mac, you can send unlimited messages to any Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that uses iMessage, Apple's secure-messaging service. iPhone owners can use it for SMS and MMS messages, too.

Set up iMessage

iMessage is the Apple messaging service you get automatically with your Apple ID.If it's not already set up, you're asked to sign in when you first open the Messages app. Sign in with same Apple ID that you use with Messages on your iPhone and other devices. It's usually the same Apple ID that you use for iCloud, the iTunes Store, the App Store, and the account you created when you first set up your Mac.

Have a conversation

  1. Click at the top of the Messages window.
  2. Address your message by typing the recipient's name, email address, or phone number. Or click and choose a recipient. If they're in your Contacts app, Messages finds them as you type. To start a group conversation, just add more recipients.
  3. Type your message in the field at the bottom of the window, then press Return to send it.
    • To include emoji, click.
    • To include an image or other file, just drag or paste it into the message field. Or use Continuity Camera to capture a photo or scan directly from your iPhone or iPad camera.

  4. After starting a conversation, click Details in the corner of the window to take other actions, including:
    • Choose not to be disturbed by notifications about this conversation.
    • Use FaceTime to start an audio call or video call .
    • Share a screen .
    • See the recipient's location—if they're sharing their location with you.
    • Review all of the photos and files that were exchanged in the conversation.
    • Add a group name, add members to a group, or leave a group. If the group has four or more members, you can remove members: Control-click the member's name, then choose Remove from Conversation.

With macOS Sierra or later, you can also use Siri to send, read, and reply to Messages:

  • ”Send a message to Susan and Johnny saying I'll be late' or ”Tell Johnny Appleseed the show is about to start” or ”Text a message to 408 555 1212.”
  • ”Read the last message from Brian Park” or ”Read my new messages.”
  • ”Reply that's great news” or ”Tell him I'll be there in 10 minutes.”

Add a Tapback to a message

macOS Sierra introduces Tapback to the Mac. A Tapback is a quick response that expresses what you think about a message, such as that you like it or think it's funny. In the image above, the heart next to ”See you then!' is a Tapback. Here's how to do it:

  1. Control-click a message bubble to open a shortcut menu.
  2. Choose Tapback from the menu.
  3. Click a Tapback to add it to the message bubble.

Your Tapback is visible to everyone in the conversation who is using iMessage with macOS Sierra or later or iOS 10 or later. Other iMessage users see 'Liked' or 'Laughed at' or 'Emphasized,' for example, followed by the text of that message.

iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch also have Tapback, as well as other message effects available only on those devices. Most such affects look the same on your Mac when you receive them. Others appear as a description of the effect, such as ”(sent with Loud Effect).”
