Legal Text Collector

Offers in-app purchases

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. They can be used as a backup of sorts, but there is no restore feature, so they are unsuitable for transferring messages between phones.

Advanced or "Chat" messages are supported on AT&T, Metro PCS and T-Mobile, when using Samsung or LG phones. This should be considered experimental; see

Verizon Messages+ is only partly supported: messages might be missing on Verizon phones. See for details.

Please also note:

• Emoji are not displayed
• Individual conversations can be extracted from the collection after sharing the whole collection to a home computer
• Google Drive does not allow opening files within the collection zip, so the entire zip file must be downloaded to view and print messages
