Easy and Exactly what I needed. Totally worth the $2. I got so tired of trying to back up my messages through apps and web. Only thing I hope they change is I had so many messages it would say I didn't have enough space but I was only looking for specific messages from one person. So if they gave me the option to choose the person at the same time as the time frame it would be way easier than trying to download all the messages which led to the lack of space and having to shorten the time frame.

Thank you, your point about lack of space is well taken. I'd like to solve that problem by improving image compression, but I can't say if I'll ever manage to do it. I'm now embroiled in an argument with Google over whether they'll continue to allow Text Collector in the Play Store at all.

Edit. Had for 2 years now and still working well It's simple to use.. Does it's job w/o a bunch of needless bells and whistles. Jist a clean simple app. Definitely good to have in a "tool box" 1 thing it would be nice to edit the title when saving. Saved my Dad's last conversation we had. Thanks Josiah. Simple easy to use and not expensive. Does what it says it does.

Absolutely fantastic app for documenting texts, and well worth paying for the full features. You are able to set a large date range of texts for a collection of texts. You can then share the texts to a shared drive such as GoogleDrive or OneDrive to view, print, and/or share from a computer. Each person's texts will be conveniently stored in their own PDF file. When you print the documents, it lists the person and their phone number so there is no questioning who is speaking in the texts.
