About this app

Legal Text Collector converts text messages to court-friendly PDF.

Preview the results for free. A one-time in-app purchase is required to unlock the share feature.

• Collects SMS and MMS
• Collects some types of Advanced Messaging (details below)
• Includes images
• Includes attachments that are not images
• Organizes messages by conversation
• Collects all messages or filters by date

Export text messages as a zip file with one PDF per conversation and share them by email, Dropbox, or any other app.

Use the printable text messages for ediscovery in your lawsuit or if you just like to print text messages. This can be used as an archive, but Text Collector is not a backup & restore program; it cannot transfer messages to a new phone.

Advanced or "Chat" messages are supported on some phones. See

Verizon Messages+ is not supported: messages might be missing or show incorrect recipients on Verizon phones. See for alternatives.

Please also note:

• Emoji and non-European scripts are not displayed
• Individual conversations can be exported after making a collection

I tried many different apps and programs to print my text messages for court, this is the only one that works! Others are very pricey and only work if you use the Google messages app. I used to use Samsung messaging and this is the only app compatible with both. This is a game changer for any custody, or court hearing, especially if the other party is willing to lie! Would be 5 stars if I didn't have to download ALL messages from the chosen period, not just what you need.

This was SO SO EASY TO USE! I've gone YEARS not backing up my text messages because I never understood how. I'm really intimidated by trying to figure out tech stuff. Anyways this app was so freaking easy to use and I had my needed text messages downloaded onto a USB drive in like 10 minutes. It was ridiculously easy and thorough. So glad I found this app!

Not happy! App "collected" all my texts, then pops up a window telling you to pay for the share of your collection. So, I pay for the share & the moment the transaction is completed, the app tells me there's too many texts! So I delete a TON of texts, 4 different times, and never could get it to "share" my collection. Seems like a scam to me when they obviously knew it wouldn't work before they asked me to pay for this so called service. Only giving one star because it's required. Deserves 0!

I'm sorry. Text Collector has no limit on the number of messages, so I don't know why you would have seen "too many." Please consider sending more details to
