I love it, especially now that each contact can have its own color. There are two things I'd like added: first of all, I'd like an option to auto import the contact's color from Google Messenger/Contact's/Phone. Secondly, I'd like an option to use the systems build in heads up notifications, as on 7.0+ quick reply is build into them and your implementation, while good, isn't as quick or seamless as the default.
Finally paid for it. The best SMS app on the store by far. Just two things. 1. Instead of the quick reply you currently have, it should be like Pulse SMS where you reply straight from pop-up along with the thread of the convo and 2. We should choose our OWN color from a color picker instead of the color your provided for us. There's this really vibrant blue that's only for the Accent color, but not for the theme color. Hope you consider my suggestions.
I normally don't write reviews. This app is by far the best texting application I've found. The pop-up isn't too in the way and easily dismisses if you don't click on it. The only thing I would honestly like more is a color wheel to set your own custom colors. And the ability to set the transparency to get super light colors. Like the stock messaging theme for android. Add that and I'll be the happiest.
I love this app -- the best text app I have tried! It will enable you to read a text message while you are still in your other application and it will even allow you to respond. Then it obediently disappears from your screen, allowing you to continue what you are working on with minor interruption. You also may dismiss it entirely or you may choose to answer it "later". Good job, you intelligent developers!
Needed a new texting app as the one on my older but better spec phone didn't deliver as well as the newer but lower spec phone I swapped from. This does everything I want. Very easy to use, great look and the ads on the free version are completely unobtrusive. All my texts came across from the phone's default app without issue. Can't fault it - great work guys!
Been running Textra for over a year now and have found it to be a fantastic alternative to the stock messaging app for the nexus. Every update seems to bring something good to the table whether it's a material redesign or simple big fixes. Highly customizable Textra gives control to the user. The app does not use a lot of memory and is very stable. Update: I'm years into this app now and every update has only made it better. I will continue using textra
