better than textra IMO though wish they had minor cosmetic details. for example screen animations, emoji animation support (like mood and messenger) and the read/receive checks to be smaller. overall pretty by good. edit: actually just noticed group messaging option to "mute" is NOT AVAILABLE. feel this is quite an oversight and might make me switch back soon
I tried many messenger apps, and this one the easy to use and custumize. As I really am only using it as SMS app I haven't searched if it has any other features like video calling/group video calling, group messaging (saw MMS but haven't used it yet), or other features some other messenger apps have. So if you want a easy to use messenger app that focus on texting and allows you to custumize with easy with all the gimmicks this the app for you. Even the ads unlike some apps don't get in the way.
Fabulous Cell Text App. There are many options and choices which I love. Thought it was all pretty self explanatory as I went through the settings. The only thing that stumped me was the new message counter (or badge) not being a choice in settings for the home screen icon. Went to FAQ and found my solution....put the Chomp Widget on home screen. It will show the new message count. Love Chomp, works great!
GREAT app! But lacking 2 very basic and VERY much needed functions. 1) message count limits per conversation. This has been in the top 3 wish list items on the developer feedback page for at least 3 years. 2) The widget icon can no longer be added to the app drawer on the bottom of the screen so it remains visible across all home screen pages. Used to work, then didn't since Marshmallow. Ugh!
Handy app, but can't send or receive MMS with android 7 data saver on (support unable to help). The app works well, but is noticeably slower to do everything than other apps. Also seems a little pricey just to remove ads. I suppose the ads aren't too intrusive...
Easy to use and very clean appearance. Didnt care much to have to pay for no ads but seems to be worth it. Would like to be able to color code message notification icons with various contacts though. 👍after upgrading to Marshmallow on my Note4, not all my texts work. Not sure if it's related or not. 🙁 update. Uninstalled as it seems to be causing my device to overheat.*update * works smoothly on my S8+
