I like this app because you can connect it with another app called Call Control, which blocks spam calls. When connected, it also blocks spam texts. I bought the premium of QKSMS back in 2021, and it's been fantastic. A one time payment too, rather than a whole damn subscription, what a novelty. Recently, however, it no longer sends or receives texts, which is what the program is meant to do, so I can't reccomend it to anyone. It hasn't been updated since 2021. It's a real shame.

This has a lot of potential. There's a few shortcomings but overall it's very functional. *Mobile numbers only* is a great feature. Ergonomics are good but not perfect, themes are good, decent selection of settings including some that even the other flexible apps do not, no ads, no bloat. Floating compose box is great. Night mode and color options are good. I found it sometimes very slow to display avatars in long threads. Attachments limited to photos & contacts, no auto-delete. (3.6.4)

Hey there, thank you for the detailed feedback! That's interesting that the avatars were slow to load - was this just on the initial load or did it happen every time? And more attachment options will certainly be coming in the future :)

Really enjoying using this app. However, there is a minor issue that I hope developer will fix. The contact does not appear to sync with the conversation. even if i linked contacts, it only shows their phone number. They only sync when I delete the conversation, text them again from the system contact. If the issue were to be fix, this would be a 100/100 sms app!

Thanks for the feedback! I'll be fixing this soon. In the meantime however, you can force the contacts to refresh by simply opening the compose screen
