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.
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
Chomp is hands down the best texting app I've used. Highly customizable and no annoying habits like the others. I really like not having to show the avatars (contact pictures). If you don't like the ads buy the pro version. It's the last texting app you'll ever buy. Chomp gives you a clean functioning interface. 👍 It's dark mode is awesome! If I had to nic-pic to find something I don't like, it would be it's full immersive mode behavior. It's not as seamless as other apps.
I have used a dozen SMS apps. And found this is best app... for dual sim mobiles as well as single one. It contains a lot of other options one can wish for.... best thing is that it is perfect ....no bugs... no issues.... Even adds are in a very sober style and don't irritate at all. I have changed many cell phones and after using built-in SMS app I have to switch to this app. Because it is very handy and no bugs at all.
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!
