1. Open your TextNow app.

2. You should be in your conversations inbox in TextNow. If not, tap on the menu button in the top left-hand corner  and tap Conversations.

3. You should see a compose button with a pencil icon in the bottom right of your screen (on Android) or the top right of your screen (on iOS):

3. At the top of the page, enter your contact's text number or texting address. You can also tap on the icon to the immediate right of this field to select a contact from your device's Contacts app.

4. At the bottom of the screen, type your message in the field that says Type A Message.
