About this app

We’re making texting magical again. QKSMS is the most beautiful messaging experience you’ve ever used. Replace your stock messaging app and fall in love with texting all over again.

QKSMS is also completely ad-free and open source, the way your messaging app should be.

New: Dual-SIM and Multi-SIM phones are now fully supported by QKSMS!

A beautiful, intuitive, and clutter-free design that allows you to focus on what matters.

Use any of the millions of colors to theme the entire app, or any particular conversation. Per-contact notifications allow you to easily prioritize and distinguish your messages. Manual and automatic night mode are great too.

Use MMS to share photos, stickers, or join your friends in a group chat. Conversation search allows you to find things easier than ever.

Easily Back up and Restore your messages, all without having to install another app.

Easily block conversations and manage your blacklist, or automatically filter out spam with Should I Answer? integration.

Reply to your messages from anywhere using the QK Reply popup, your Wear OS (Android Wear) watch, or directly from your notification shade (Android 7.0+)

High contrast black theme, and full support for TalkBack and Samsung Voice Assistant.

I liked QKSMS even with the bugs. I contacted the developer via email 5 times. Waited 4 weeks. NOT ONE REPLY. Nothing on the web for support either. It is obvious this app is no longer supported. This version in the Play Store is from February 24, 2021. Nothing new since. I uninstalled QKSMS and had to find something else for messaging. I could not continue to use QKSMS with the bugs, as they are too severe to live with. Fix the bugs and this app could be one of the most popular messaging apps available.

Not happy. A simple thing like changing the bubble color of your sent text is not possible. Night mode changes the bkgd to a nice black but the sent bubbles are the same color. Therefore having a hard time differentiating where the sent text starts/ends. Paid for the upgrade after seeing a "Premium Theme" option thinking it would correct this but to no avail. I will update this if that problem is solved. I see no reason why the sent bubble color cannot be customized as is with other apps.

Was looking for a messaging app without gifs, which can be very inappropriate, but still had imoji's and no ads!!! This app is great! It runs smooth, seems to be compatible with other messaging services and has a smooth import contacts from previous service. Liked it enough to buy the full app for a really low price! Thank you QKSMS! PS; minor suggestions would be to add a text "read" feature along with the "delivered" that you already have and add the ability to change color of the owner text🙂
