    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.

    My current messaging app, EvolveSMS is as fast and beautiful as it is functional. The popups actions can be customized (with up to 3 options) including a "Remind Me Later" function for messages you don't want to answer at the moment. While it does have bugs, the developer is dedicated to updating and improving the app regularly.

    floydpambrose: I used Textra until I found EvolveSMS. Now I'm hooked. Beautiful design, smooth swipe functionality, quick reply function. Highly recommend.
