    Reviewed in A beautiful and improved Android experience

    Fantastic SMS app. Slide between different SMS conversations. Super neat. New updates include both Google Now like card UI and Hangouts UI, which both look really slick. Original stock SMS like UI is also available.

    I've probably went through twenty or more SMS apps in the beginning trying to find what I liked and this one can not be beat. Being able to slide through each message thread simply makes this the best. There is a free version to try as well.

    The most customisable messaging app in the market. If you buy the theme engine, you can customise almost every aspect of how the app looks. And it works like a charm!

    This is a messaging app different from the others, if you rather have a neat easy messing app without all the themes and extra stuff this is it, has some customization but very professional look

    Really the best SMS app. Very intuitive Gesture based UI, as well as themes.

    Reviewed in DashClock Extensions & Apps

    Sliding Messaging has really set the bar for what an Android app should look like, and what an Android developer should be. Case in point, DashClock support for unread messages was added very quickly after its availability, they listened to users.

NOTE: Due to limitations of the Android System starting in Android 4.4, you will not be able to use your tablet for Google Voice support. It will only be possible to use Google Voice on a device that has SMS functionality. This is due to the new SMS API's included with KitKat and setting up a default SMS application, which can't be done on a tablet.
