Excellent app. I have overcome the issues other people reported with images by specifying MMS messages and increasing the compression size in the settings. The app is very customizable and it also includes the ability to archive messages. It's also the only text app that I found so far that has an option to have texts turn the screen on when the screen is dark see you can see the text without having to touch your phone.

Update: Realized open conversations don't notify of new messages with the screen off. Kind of a big issue for me. Original: Pretty good, but MMS "fixes" haven't worked. Still can't send picture messages after 3 updates that claimed to fix it. I like the app pretty well, but this is a big problem. EDIT: I can send photos reliably now, but they get compressed down to 300KB, which is pretty low resolution. It'll work for now, but not very well.

300KB is a safe number that I generally recommend, just to see if we can get things working at all. If it's working for you now, you can try increasing it, until the point where it stops again. You're probably safe at 600KB, but things might break at 1MB. Only way to know is by testing :)

Ever since I paid for the all access features this app has really gone downhill. Every time I try to send a picture or a screenshot it fails to send and tells me to try again - it never works. I never had problems before sending photos or screenshots via text. This is a pretty useless texting app if you can't send screenshots or pictures. The only time I can now send a picture is if I reduce the resolution so far that the pic becomes almost unviewable. I'll be looking for a better texting app.
