Textra SMS Reviews

    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.

    Disclaimer: I have never used this app myself. Another lightweight popup messaging app along the lines of Sliding SMS. However, I am personally not too fond of the look of the app.

    whiskeysnowcone: I just started using my nexus 5 and was not entirely impressed with Google hangouts for texting. Reddit recommended Textra and I've been thoroughly impressed with the features and simple UI.

    Another SMS app. I don't like it as much as Sliding Messaging Pro, but this is free, as well as feature ridden. Great download if you aren't willing to shell out any cash.

Let's face it, the stock Android Messaging app really sucks! So time to try something new, but it has to be pretty special, right? It's here, it's called Textra and it's a seriously beautiful way to text. Textra features the new Lollipop Material Design look from Google. Fluid, intuitive and delightful!

★ Number 1 ranked SMS app
★ Highest rated at 4.5 stars
★ Smallest resource size at 3.8M

Comes with a bunch of great extra features like 800+ emoji's, heaps of material design theme colors, dark mode, floating Lollipop style notifications, scheduled SMS & MMS, delayed sending (stop while sending), slide to delete / call, quick snap camera, multi-select picture gallery, quick reply popup, better MMS GROUP messaging, audio messages and SMS blocker / blacklisting.

Plus 'oh so easy' default or per contact customization for bubble colors, signatures and notifications (icon color, led color, sound, vibrate, privacy, repeating and muting).

It's pretty special; try it, tell your friends, shout from the treetops, but most of all enjoy it!

Simple. Beautiful. Fast.

P.S works with Pushbullet and Android Wear for SMS Quick Replying.

Textra is a seriously beautiful, feature rich SMS and MMS replacement app.
