Absolutely in love with this app, runs more smoothly than my native messaging app. But just a request, when I get many texts from different people, the individual icons clutter up my notification bar. There's times when it's handy but if you guys could have a toggle option to when you can make the notifications customizable? To choose when it's individual icons and when you wanna group it all together.
I just paid for the app today. It's awesome especially with releasing material design updates that make it interesting.I would definitely recommend it to anyone. But, is there a way to remove the time and date stamps between some conversation bubbles in the chats? I would like the chat background to appear plain with only the conversation bubbles without the time stamps and leave the time and date be accessible only via the swipe-left-in-the-chat feature. It would definitely look simple and minimalistic. Cheers!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Go on give Textra a try! I highly recommend trying Textra! It's free, fast, simple to use, lightweight, reliable and very customizable! There's so many things you can change within the app to fit your preference such as the bubble style, theme color, emoji style, LED blink color and more! There's also so many great features like the option to create a schedule message! Not only is the app great Textra developers are too their kind, helpful and responsive when ever you need help with the app which is definitely a plus!
Could be perfect. Few issues I have with the app is 1, there is no setting to automatically import your contact colors to the conversation colors, it all has to be done manually. 2nd is that delivery reports do not show when the text is over 160 characters (Android messages shows this). 3, cannot replace return key with emoji key on keyboard. 4, this may be an issue with Android as a whole as it happens with Android messages, if you use the stock Android quick reply and not the Textra implementation, if you open the app after you have input text, it does not transfer over into the text field inside the app and is gone forever. Other than that it is much faster and snappier than Android messages and I will continue to use until my carrier supports rcs or Android messages improves (carrier is Verizon wireless)
I decided to change my review from four stars to five. My first four star review addressed that I would really love to see an option to use an image of my choosing for the background instead of solid colors. The developers took the time to respond and note the suggestion, so I've decided to change the star rating. Of course, I'd still love to see the feature mentioned above. Keep up the good work Textra!
I've tried to keep Google-only apps on my phone. However, every once in awhile, I return to this wonderful SMS app. It's smooth, fast, and it simply just works. I've had no issues with Textra since it arrived on the Play Store and now, it has a permanent place on my device. Edit: One thing. Can you please give us a feature that changes the theme on a per-contact basis? Also, maybe a private inbox with fingerprint and pin code support? Update: Now I'm requesting an archive feature. I'm so needy. Lol.
✔ Any third party app that 'counts unread messages' from the Android SMS / MMS database will NOW work with Textra. For example Samsung watches, Blackberry HUB, Fitbits, Car systems etc.
✔ Fixed up missing Emoji. Apologies!
✔ Bug fixes.
Important: In relation to the first point above, you may NOW need to TURN OFF Notifications from other installed SMS apps, via their settings. Otherwise you'll get multiple notifications.
