I originally gave this 5 stars. I stumbled on this app when I had phone problems sending messages. It works really great so far. You can change the colors so your messages have alternate colors making it easier to read what is what. BUT... After checking the reviews and the last update schedule I probably will not buy. The last updates are for in 2021 meaning they're not maintaining it anymore. So sorry you lost Stars. And a customer.

QKSMS recently has been having issues sending and receiving messages, especially pictures. I reached out to the developer but he never responded. It's a simple messenger. It does not send or receive audio messages. It does not have the ability to send or receive some images. It definitely cannot send videos. Links to other apps or to news articles do not have previews. I liked it because it worked enough to do the minimum. Unfortunately, it needs updating.

This is the best texting app I've used. But I love to see a feature that allows you to block emails that come in as a text and also auto delete temporary taxts like the ones used for one time passwords and stuff. The only issue that I have is if you send multiple pictures as one text only one will make it to the recipient.
