Most phone manufacturers (Samsung, HTC, LG, etc.) build their own messaging apps with brand specific user interfaces. The Nexus 5 has also removed Messaging and now includes Google Hangouts instead. Installing this app allows all Android 4.1+ owners to use the classic SMS/MMS app from Google.
This re-compiled version is maintained by SoftCoil Development for the benefit of the community. Please report any issues so that we can resolve them quickly. (Note that MMS may not work on your 4.2 device until we have fixed an OS bug. We are working on it though. :-) )
IMPORTANT Note For Moto G and Moto E Users: If you disable the default messaging app that comes with your phone in System -> Apps no other SMS messaging apps will work. You need to leave the messaging app that came with your phone installed and active for other messaging apps to work or you will experience errors sending and receiving messages.
We're always excited to hear from our users. Please send us feedback through our websites if you run into any issues so we can fix them ASAP.
Also, check out our other SMS app (Chattr) for free messaging with your friends!

** 8sms is "trial ware". The "trial" period is 14 days. **
** After the "trial" period, ads will appear (but you can continue to use 8sms for as long as you like). You can remove the ads by making an in-app donation: http://8s.ms/removing-ads **
Stock messaging app with useful updates and enhancements.
The latest and best from Android and CyanogenMod.
No bloat. No fuss.
Just a better stock app.
8sms is a port of the Android stock messaging (sms and mms) app with a few extra useful features then added on. The current version is ported from Android 4.4.4 and CyanogenMod 10.2 M1.
• Quick reply pop-ups
• Emoji support
• Optional dark theme
• Clean and no bloat
• Most robust "out-of-the-box" mms support
Paid app and "trial" period
Due to problems with financial viability as a free app, 8sms has now effectively become a "premium" app (via in-app donations) with a free "trial" period.
There is a 14 day trial period for new installs. In the trial period, ads do not appear. After the trial period, ads will appear but if you donate, you can disable the ads: http://8s.ms/removing-ads
Donating the minimum amount listed in "In-app purchases" below is sufficient to disable the ads.
Donations are "remembered" across upgrades and reinstalls. If you update to a future version of 8sms or uninstall and reinstall, 8sms will remember that you have donated.
You only need to donate ONCE. If you ever have a problem with donations not being remembered, please email us for assistance.
The in-app billing permission is used for in-app donations.
Usage (Android 4.3 and earlier)
8sms has two modes: default and Stand-alone mode.
In default mode, please do not disable or remove the messaging app that came with your device as that is still required to receive sms and mms messages. Instead, Turn off notifications for the messaging app that came with your device. Then you won't get two sets of notifications.
In Stand-alone mode, please disable or remove the messaging app that came with your device otherwise every new message will be stored twice.
Usage (Android 4.4 and later)
Please install and make 8sms your default sms app.
If you have a lot of old sms messages, it may take a few minutes for 8sms to load conversations the first time.
If you have issues using this app, please see http://8s.ms/info for helpful information and possible solutions. Sample topics include, for example:
Removing ads: http://8s.ms/removing-ads
Duplicate notifications or messages: http://8s.ms/duplicate-notifications-or-messages
Missing notifications or messages: http://8s.ms/missing-notifications-or-messages
Can't send or receive mms: http://8s.ms/cant-send-or-receive-mms
Dual SIM support: http://8s.ms/dual-sim-support
Then, if you still have issues, please ask for help.
Forum di supporto italiano (Italian language support)
This app requires a wide range of permissions because it is a port of a system app. System apps use a lot of permissions. Full network access is required in order to send (or download) mms using your phone's cellular data (mms) connection.
The "approximate location" permission is used for serving ads. It is not used if ads are disabled.

UPDATES: You may have noticed I haven't updated this for ages. Sorry. I bought a Nexus 4 and so I don't need this any more and don't have motivation to update it. A possible alternative is TextSecure which is free and based on the same code as this, plus it encrypts your texts!
This is the stock messaging (SMS & MMS) app from Android 4.1 Jellybean! The biggest improvements Google made in Jellybean are a new widget, photos in the notifications and a better recipient interface.
Remember to disable your existing SMS app's notifications or you will get two notifications for each message.
Please test the app to make sure it can send and receive messages correctly before relying on it! Test it a lot! Also if you are upgrading from the ICS version, PLEASE read the recent changes.
If you appreciate this and my other totally free stock apps, consider sending me some money (via paypal)! I'm poor and hungry and it takes a long time to do this!
* Some incomplete phone numbers in the ComposeMessageActivity are deleted when you go to enter the message. I found the cause of this but there is not much I can do.
* Contact photos may not sync properly. According to one user this is expected behaviour and it is basically Facebook's fault.
* Widget is flickery when it loads. I looked into it. Can't find problem; may be Samsung's bug since it doesn't happen in emulator.
* Widget "Show more conversations" button goes to the compose message activity instead of the message list. This is very weird.
* SMS notifications might be unreliable for you. Test it a lot!
* MMS doesn't work at all right now.
Richer texting: Android stock messenger app replacement with 800+ emoji, unique stickers (some with sound), multi-pick gallery, better MMS group messaging, audio messages and SMS blocking / blacklisting.
Live chat: If your friends are also on Messaging Plus, SMS texting turns into live chat - see when your friends are typing and have viewed message, create your own groups instantly and more
Customization: Pick your own wallpapers, custom message bubble themes, custom notification tones, message signatures and more
Video Calls: Free video calls in high definition. Leave video voicemails when your friends are not available. Messaging+ video calling has been optimized for 3G/4G so that you can share the moment wherever you are.
Share anything instantly: Snap pics or videos inside the app, share from your gallery, your contacts, your location or ANY type of file (PDF, DOC, XLS, PPT, ...)
No limits: Want to share a full HD video or a 100MB file? No problem! Messaging+ supports much bigger files than other messenger apps.
Encryption: All communication with the Messaging Plus servers is secured with state of the art encryption - including chat, file transfers and video chat.

Using TextSecure, you can communicate instantly while avoiding SMS fees, create groups so that you can chat in real time with all your friends at once, and share media or attachments all with complete privacy. The server never has access to any of your communication and never stores any of your data.
★ Private. TextSecure uses an advanced end to end encryption protocol that provides privacy for every message every time.
★ Open Source. TextSecure is Free and Open Source, enabling anyone to verify its security by auditing the code. TextSecure is the only private messenger that uses open source peer-reviewed cryptographic protocols to keep your messages safe.
★ Group Chat. TextSecure allows you to create encrypted groups so you can have private conversations with all your friends at once. Not only are the messages encrypted, but the TextSecure server never has access to any group metadata such as the membership list, group title, or group icon.
★ Fast. The TextSecure protocol is designed to operate in the most constrained environment possible. Using TextSecure, messages are instantly delivered to friends.
TextSecure is not currently compatible with tablets, but support for larger screens is on our roadmap and will be included in a future release!

This app is an xposed module which will redirect your Whatsapp and Kik messages and make them appear as normal text messages. You can then reply to them with any standard SMS client (such as hangouts!).
If you do not have the xposed framework installed, this app will not work.
WhatsApp messages will come as *9292*CONTACT_NUMBER, and as such will automatically take contact name and picture from your address book.
Kik messages will come as *545*ID. This ID is an arbitrary number which matches the SMS thread with the kik thread. To import your kik contacts, you can touch sync in the app (accessing profile pictures requires root).
WhatsApp groups and media (pictures, voice recordings, videos...) are not currently supported (but may come in the future).
Kik media is not currently supported.
This app is in beta and has been tested only on a LG G2 with the latest updates installed. If you have any issue with it, don't hesitate to contact me. Leaving a 1 star rating will not help me fixing the issue, but the details you might give me yes!
Due to the nature of xposed modules, this app is compatible with the following versions (currently the latest):
If you see an update from one or both, do not update until I update my module, or you will loose bridging functionalities.
