    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.

    sirrometan - I've been using EvolveSMS as my SMS app for awhile now and I like it a lot. It's fast, custimizable and the developers respond quickly on their plus page. I found Contacts+ to be battery draining.
