I'm a diehard Textra user, but its overall design leaves something to be desired. EvolveSMS, on the other hand, is quite the beaut. You do have to purchase some of its features though (gifs, themes, etc), and as someone who's in between jobs right now (read: unemployed), I'm better off sticking to free alternatives.

Recently, I have gone through a lot of messaging apps after being with Hoverchat for a while. Many apps that I went through either didn't have all of the features I wanted or were too overloaded with features to perform correctly, but EvolveSMS has easily become my favorite messaging app with the best of both worlds.
EvolveSMS is a powerful texting replacement app that makes talking to your friends quick, fun and easy! It’s been designed from the bottom up with the newest Android design guidelines in mind to look beautiful and function just as well. A few features:
- A beautiful and smooth interface for sliding between conversations so everything is just a swipe away
- Full multimedia support including sending pictures, videos, audio, contacts, and GIFs
- A popup that allows you full access to anything in the app and looks great
- Batch deleting messages
- Archiving messages
- Fully customizable notifications
- Password protection
- Android Wear support
- And much, much more :)
Please note: The app is completely free to download and enjoy for everyone! There are 2 different in-app purchases to expand on the functionality of the app with things like theming, scheduling SMS, a private inbox, sending GIFs, and more. If you like the app or want more features, feel free to show it and buy the in-app purchases in the settings menu :)
