Reviewed in Form+Function
Yes, I have reviewed Textra previously, but it's improved leaps and bounds since then! Gone is the "pretty okay" sorta design, it's all Material now, baby. Add that to the good 'ol speed and reliability, and you've got quite a contender in the SMS apps arena. I might just switch back to Textra.
