I used handcent sms before but this version is awesome. It has so much more to offer than before. I have used it on all of my phones and will not change to a different one. This one gives you options to change your entire look and also to block anyone u don't want to deal with at the time. There is also a section you can hide your messages. I recommend this one if your looking for a text app with great options.
I used Handcent when it first came out, and foolishly switched to another SMS that came with another android brand a few year ago. I'm so glad to be back that never fails me, has more useful options and peripherals than any other text tool, and provides excellent customer support. And they are constantly improving and enhancing their product. There's a reason their reviews are so good. It's because Handcent SMS is really top of the line.
Handcent now has it all. They are continuously updating their app. The update caused a problem and before I wrote in, they had already released another update that fixed it. Definitely the best texting app available. And their support is great too. I wrote in two issues over the past few weeks. They responded within hours to both! New updates are awesome. They finally got it all together. The latest update increased the speed of sending all texts AND the length of videos. Buy it, you'll like it! 6 STARS!
Far better than the stock messaging app on my Oneplus 3T. Can't really speak highly enough of it, it's just one of those things you forget about because it works so well. This has been the second app installed in every new phone I ever had after a different keyboard. It's great.
I have searched & searched - in efforts to find a messaging app that allows me to not only change my font, but to have variety to choose from! I came across Handcent, & am now able to pick from 50+ different font styles, I also have the ability to customize many other things as well, making it easy to personalize everything to my liking! However, I did notice that quite a few of the font packs, weren't actually available for some reason.. & it keeps giving me an error message, when I try to register.. overall though, I would definitely recommend!
Just Areas for Improvement though. 1.) Pop up messages doesn't show contact names but contact numbers, it's confusing.. 2.) Scheduled messages doesn't show contact names but contact numbers, it's very confusing as I have many scheduled messages. 3.) Please add function for scheduled message to be repeated in multiple schedules. 4.) Please function to automatically sort scheduled messages per contact. P.s. I have the screenshot of 1 and 2 issues 5.) always gives error: "is sending a large number of SMS messages. Do you want to allow this app to continue sending messages"
>Fixed force close on pop up issue
>Fixed some known issues
#1 messenger app used by millions of people with lots of custom options.
