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!

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

Customizable
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.

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

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

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

Convenient
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+)

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

Sorry it took me so long to update this review. The app now blocks spam very well. Half the time, though, it won't let me schedule a text (the other half the time it will). Question: when will I be able to send pictures? I've donated/paid for all features already and can't figure out why it never sends them. I can attach them but they never send and re-tapping the image as directed never works either. Thanks!

Hey Pat, automatic spam detection isn't a feature of QKSMS. If you'd like spam messages to automatically be blocked, QKSMS integrates nicely with the "Should I Answer?" app.

Switched from google's messages app due to a stupid bug which broke functionality. This is light weight and does what it should. Only issue I have ocasionaly when shairing from other apps it sends to the last person i was texting instead of the person I selected from the list. However it shows the message in the conversation before sending.

Works surprisingly well for an app that's no longer maintained for over a year. It's clean, simple, and does what it needs to do. A small donation unlocks a few extra customizations. Thankfully it's open source, so anyone can continue where the developer left off if they wish.
