  • Crashes

    By Tchemp
    Crashes every time I try to open a fax. Which was the whole point of my downloading the app.
  • Not been working well

    By Mother Goose, Jr
    The faxes take. A long time to go through and often end up failing!
  • App keeps crashing

    By Ctekin
    Web version works great and allows you to save frequently faxes documents however the app for iOS keeps crashing with updates to fix the issue
  • Ap rarely works to view inbox

    By RleePT
    I love being able to send and receive secure faxes digitally but I am on the run and often need this to work over iOS instead of just on the laptop. Over the past year, for whatever reason trying to open my inbox crashes the ap. There will be a brief update that fixes this, then when another iOS update occurs, it will take another 6 months for sFax to update theirs as well and during that time the inbox will continue to crash the ap. I have reported this in the past. The cycle continues and the delay in repairs is quite lengthy. The web service is worthwhile. The ap is not functional.
  • Crashes on IOS 12

    Service too expensive, app doesn’t work. Move on to another service provider...
  • App no longer opens

    By Hghsjxjsosndjxd
    App fails to open. Used to work on my iPhone 6s. After switching to iPhone Xs, it won’t open.
  • No Face ID

    By God_of_Thndr21
    Upgrade the app to work with Face ID!! It’s still has Touch ID and the app crashes if you try to enable it.
  • Broken

    By itinerantmonk
    The app used to work. For the last month or so it crashes every time I try to check or send faxes. Customer service is abysmal-I have yet to find a way to get someone to respond. The web based product is solid-I’ve used it for a decade. I just work they would offer support for the app.
  • Terrible Customer Service

    By atty53214
    I purchased a fax account over five years ago with SFax and they eliminated the reasonably priced service plan I had. Still I wanted to keep my number so I agreed to take on their new costs. They goofed up and gave me a brand new account and I didn’t get my previous number. I had to call and get them to give me my old number and they gave me that and the old number and charged me for both. Twice. The refused to fix their error and refund me for all of the duplicative costs. I ended up being fb scammed hundreds of dollars because of the mistake they acknowledged making. Don’t use this, there are cheaper and more honest companies out there!
  • Updated review: App crashing, no updates for a year

    By NicknamesRAsinine
    J2, which bought sfax, has raised the price per month of the cheapest plan from $15/mo to $29/mo, instituted a page limit, overage charges, and changed the numbers to all toll free numbers. When they made all of these changes they also summarily cancelled my account, without notification that this would happen. I had a fax come in that I was unable to access because they cancelled my account--which was always paid on time and was used for legitimate business purposes at a number of pages far below their new monthly limits. For a service advertising to businesses that require privacy and legal compliance this is outrageous behavior on behalf of the company. Look elsewhere for a fax service. I'll never give J2 any of my money again. Original review below: App crashes when I try to open my inbox, even after deleting and reinstalling the app. There have been no updates for a year. sfax appears to have been bought by the same company that buys up so many of the online fax services, which is disappointing. When I first subscribed to sfax I was coming to them from a company that also got bought buy this same company gobbling up fax services and then deteriorating the services. I won't be renewing my subscription. As other reviewers have noted, you can't import documents into the app to fax from your device so the functionality is severely hampered. The app was only good for resending a fax that didn't go through or checking the status of a fax sent from a browser. Honestly, the browser interface is also subpar. The only thing I have liked about sfax is that it's HIPAA compliant.
  • The website app has much more functionality on the iPhone than the app

    By Procat
    The website app works better than this app on the iPhone. The app cannot import documents directly to the documents folder - it can only attach them while sending fax. Also, the app can only send a photo from the iPhone and cannot use pdf files. The app cannot use your cloud connections to add a file but only the ones owned by the sfax company. It's very clunky and klugy and hard to use with missing and limited features. Stick with the website app.

    They used to be affordable for the little person, but I guess we are not profitable enough. Way too expensive for the retiree, who needs secure faxing for a few documents 2-3 times a year.
