Love this app. I've been using it for years. Has amazing themes, privacy settings and allows you to personalize each text message differently per person. I eventho the app is great there are a few minor issues that happen from time to time and that's alot to do with the app lagging. It seems to freeze at times. Putting me in a spot the only I can do to correct it is by restarting my phone. Over all though, it's by far one of the best SMS apps I've ever used . [fTSNT3xg]

Thus app is highly functional. I run my practice through Handcent and it is flawless. I did have an issue with being unable to to personal appointment confirmations and orders. When I inquired about the problem it was readily addressed and corrected. Handcent determined it was not a flaw in the texting app but advanced setting on my phone that needed to be activated. A tremendous improvement in thus specific application. Highly highly recommend this text app.

I've been using this app for several years and love it. The personalization features for contacts is great along with several other features. What's the most impressive though is the support. I always get fast responses and great support and that was using the FREE version! Thanks to the consistent great support, even though rarely needed, I upgraded to a paid version.
