★ Number 1 ranked SMS app
★ Highest rated at 4.5 stars

This app is smooth as butter. It's not bloated like Go SMS and Handcent. There are so many slick features, wow where do I start... Great work! It's simply gorgeous looking, feels so NOW with the material design colors. I never review apps, but this one is amazing, no more to say! The best SMS messenger app by far.
★★★★★ Dan in February 2015
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 Lollipop - no more hangouts for me!
★★★★★ Chase in February 2015
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. Do yourself a favor and get Textra messenger now!
★★★★★ Andrew in February 2015
Excellent free alternative to stock messaging. The program just works. You can set notifications, bubble colors and even delivery reports per contact. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Textra is a seriously beautiful, feature rich SMS and MMS replacement app.
No limit (phone may have limit; see FAQ. E.g. some telephone companies may only allow 10 texts). Users have reported sending over 750 in one go!
Generic Failures notice:
Some phones with Android Jellybean and Kitkat have started getting these. Especially on messages longer than 160 characters.
It seems to be an issue with the phone's build of Android itself - especially Samsung - but we are trying to find a workaround. The Setting "Generic Failure fix" setting may help and it is a good idea to keep messages to less than 160 long.
Remember that other apps have the same issue - it is not just GroupText - we cannot fix the phones.
Uses your Gmail contacts and groups.
Multiple account support.
Group edit (via GroupManager).
Name substitution using "$firstname", "$lastname" and "$fullname".
Schedule messages: send a message later (Note that this new function is in Beta).
This app cannot be saved to the SD card due to an Android feature to allow it to Send Later.
• Faster sharing: Select or take pictures and videos directly from the app and share easily. You can even send audio messages to your contacts.
• Easy search: Search through contacts and conversation threads to find exactly what you are looking for.
• Purposeful design: New, fluid, material design that is intuitive and delightful.
• More control: Ability to block SMS senders. No interruptions when you don’t want them!
• More features: audio messages, emoji support 😃, colored text threads, message archiving and more.
Messenger is supported on devices running Android™ 4.1, Jelly Bean, and above.
You can also add a Snap to your Story with one tap to share your day with all of your friends.
The best conversations happen when both friends are present, so we’ll let you know if your friend is Here in your Chat so that you can give each other your full attention. And if you're both Here, simply press and hold to share live video - and Chat face-to-face!
Please note: even though Snaps, Chats, and Stories are deleted from our servers after they expire, we cannot prevent recipient(s) from capturing and saving the message by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device.

Most phone manufacturers (Samsung, HTC, LG, etc.) build their own messaging apps with brand specific user interfaces. The Nexus 5 has also removed Messaging and now includes Google Hangouts instead. Installing this app allows all Android 4.1+ owners to use the classic SMS/MMS app from Google.
This re-compiled version is maintained by SoftCoil Development for the benefit of the community. Please report any issues so that we can resolve them quickly. (Note that MMS may not work on your 4.2 device until we have fixed an OS bug. We are working on it though. :-) )
IMPORTANT Note For Moto G and Moto E Users: If you disable the default messaging app that comes with your phone in System -> Apps no other SMS messaging apps will work. You need to leave the messaging app that came with your phone installed and active for other messaging apps to work or you will experience errors sending and receiving messages.
We're always excited to hear from our users. Please send us feedback through our websites if you run into any issues so we can fix them ASAP.

Feedback from happy users who have joined the Palringo community to make the most of our chat groups, games and bots:
“Wonderful app lots of different groups make your own doesn't matter the great way to chat with friends or family” - Sean Demel
“Love it I have used this a couple years now. Great place to meet people from all over the world. :)” - Meagan Watkins
“Great for gamers I use this chat regularly to fill in the gaps in what is available on in-game chat. The ability to post screenshots, edit pictures, talk in a group or in private message, and even use voice are a tremendous help in planning in-game strategy. The only downside is that it is so much better than any chat feature in a game that some of your crew may start hanging out in pal more than they are in game” - Clint Mitchell
“Great for communicating w/ friends in games or meeting groups of people who enjoy things U do!” - Paige Keepers
“This is a great app to make friends on and do amazing group chat. Lots of fun on free time!” - Kyle Handy
