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.
Includes a bunch of great features like 800+ emoji's, animated GIFs, animated emoji's, dark mode themes, cool quick reply popup, better MMS and GROUP messaging. Plus 'oh so easy' default or per contact customization for bubble colors, delivery reports, signatures and notifications (icon color, led color, sound, vibrate pattern, privacy, popup or simply turn off notifications, great for muting group conversations!).
It's pretty bloody special; try it, tell your friends, shout from the treetops, but most of all enjoy it!
Simple. Beautiful. Fast.

The VERY best FREE messaging replacement for the stock app on the galaxy S4. SMS is fast, and group chat MMS works perfectly as well. I am on Sprint (which supports MMS over WiFi) and Textra is the ONLY third-party messaging app that works with MMS on WiFi!!!!!! Plus it's FREE, no ads. BUT you MUST uninstall other SMS apps first, as they can interfere with Textra. After I did that it was PERFECT.
NICE! Now works on KitKat - no more hangouts for me! they added Font Size too, nice.

Simple. Beautiful. Fast. Even the dev's know their app is just that good plus it's free. Bar none, this is the best SMS/MMS replacement app I've ever used. As soon as I launched it the first time, I fell in love. Upon launch, Textra sets up all the technical stuff automatically in mere seconds. And boy, the speed doesn't stop there. I have about 60,000 texts. With my stock app, I'd have to sit there and wait forever for various hiccups and loading and blah blah blah... I've tried every other SMS replacement app I could find. Textra is the only one that handles all of them without skipping a beat. It also lets you customize settings for each contact. Bubble color, icon color, notification sound, vibrate pattern, LED color... everything I want. And it just works. I don't have to fight the app. The only issue I had was getting my MMS messages to work, but I emailed the dev's, and within TEN MINUTES they responded. Within one night, we had about 18 or so emails back and forth, and by the end of it, they had pushed out a new version of the app (1.27) and my issue was magically fixed! I have never experienced such great support for an app before. I was blown away. I look forward to all the love and care this app will receive! Do yourself a favor and get Textra now!

Excellent free alternative to stock messaging. The program just works. You can set notifications, bubble colors and even delivery reports *per contact*. It's great with Google Keyboard, love it. Emoji's work perfectly with iPhone friends as does the group messaging. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
★★★★★ Christian in April 2014
This app is smooth and does the important functional things perfectly. It's not bloated like Go SMS and Handcent. Works great with iPhone friends for group messaging and emoji's very NICE! Also splits messages for CDMA networks as well. The timestamp feature per bubble (drag left) is SOOO slick. Great work! Good for those with limited eyesight too, as you can make the font size much bigger.
Textra is a seriously beautiful, feature rich SMS and MMS replacement app.

And much more advantages
This App gives you the ability to:
-Distinguish text messages from emails and other phone notifications.
-Personalize and Organize your text message notifications in ways you haven’t seen before!
-Set contact specific text tone sounds and notification bar icons.
-Choose to be notified by ringtones or alarm tones instead of a notification sounds.
-Choose silent ways to be notified (LED Lights or Vibrations) and still know who the messages are from and how many messages they have sent.
-Apply advanced contact specific rules to:
*Play the notification sound repeatedly until the message has been acknowledged.
*Play the notification sound even if your phone is currently set to silent or vibrate.
-Trigger the rule by a key phrase in the text message itself.
-Contact the developer from within the app to provide feedback, ask questions, report bugs, and vote on future enhancements.
Until a proper and reliable solution is developed the custom tones and other customizations of this app do not apply to MMS (multi media/picture messages). Instead your systems default texting notification service will be used to deliver these text messages.
If you have other SMS apps that handle received messages they may not function properly while running this app. Likewise there may be some text messaging apps out there that will prevent this app from functioning properly.
Consider downloading apps like Zedge that can help you acquire free texttones and ringtones to really personalize and customize your texting experience.
Explanation for permissions needed:
Reading settings and contacts - Fairly obvious, but to be clear the app is only looking at settings regarding your ringer mode state, and your system notification sounds and vibration settings. The only use of the contact information is to assign a rule for that contact.
Reading and sending text messages - The app needs to be able to detect when new messages are available and be notified when you have read a message so that the notification can be cleared from the notification bar. The only time the app will ever send a text message is if you choose to contact the developer, and of course it is by your permission, and it will warn you it is about to do this.
Have you ever forgotten about sending your mother happy birthday wishes ? Has your love one ever wanted to break up with you after not getting any sweet nothings on your anniversary ? Have you ever hoped for tightening up relations with your business partners by sending them Christmas wishes? Now you can do it in advance and just don't trouble with it anymore.

On the main screen you see information about scheduled SMS messages dispatches. Every entry specifies recipients, dispatch frequency and date and time of next sms transmission. You can edit every entry just by clicking on it. To add a new entry use a button on the bottom of a main screen. You can specify as many recipients as you want just by separating numbers with a comma. Remember that to schedule a new sms dispatch you have to provide a phone number and a message - those fields are required. Also if you want to send a message only once choose "Once" as a frequency.
To see a status of last 1000 sms dispatches and deliveries press Menu button on the main screen and choose History. Every entry in the list specifies a recipient, original date and time on which sms should be sent, real date and time on which sending or delivery occurs and status of the whole operation ("Sent without problems" or "Successfully delivered" means that everything went well).
In the menu on the main screen you can also choose "Preferences" option which lets you enable/disable notifications and conversation threads insertion.
Now please enjoy!
