I tried 4-5 different apps and this one is the only one that did exactly what I wanted. Let me select an entire conversation ( other apps were limited to small number of msgs... My conversation is over 5000msgs) , back it up as a simple text file ( no.need for other programs just so.you can read the file). After that I just had to browce to it attach it to email and send. ( look for folder sms backup or something in your sd card). If the app send the sms text file to my email for me I would give it 5 star.
I used to think this was a wonderful app that just does the simple thing it's supposed to do: save your SMS messages to your filesystem (SD Card) on your Android phone. It does so quickly and flawlessly, so far as I can tell. It has a very clear interface. However, I just discovered it does not save everything. I'm not sure what it saves but it did not save a conversation I really needed it to. Fortunately, the conversation is still on my phone -- but not in the backup. I am using Google Nexus 6p with Nougat.
Junk, attempted to pull all of my messages from a thread and it only pulled the inbound messages which is useless to me foe what i need. Please fix or give work around
I was reluctant based on some of the reviews, but to my surprise, it worked perfectly. Just have to have a file manger and know how to navigate where you saved it. Thank you! Also shared via gmail. Samsung galaxy 7 edge
Stupid. It only saves one text bubble - not the entire conversation. I can copy and paste each text bubble and put anywhere without this app. I need an app that will convert the ENTIRE conversation to text.
Worked like a charm! After converting a conversation to a text file, I connected my phone to my computer via USB, and found the text file in a folder titled "SMStoText". Easy peasy! Thank you to the smart devs for creating this app!
