I am editing my review... I love this app, but I am experiencing problems with it. I have owned the Nexus 5, 5X, and now the Pixel. The stock Hangouts and Messenger really sucked, IMHO. Textra will work great for a period of time and then I stop receiving texts. Instead, I start getting a white pop up window that gives directions to go into the settings to manually configure them. Can someone in tech please help me out with this again. I will be happy to change my review back to a glowing one, once this is remedied.
Only texting app I'll ever use. No joke I've been having problems withy texting apps for about a year now. I tried out Chomp and I loved it for a while but idk I wanted more so I asked an Android friend who suggested this. Never in my life have I been more glad that I downloaded an app. I can't get over how awesome it is! Like the different colors for conversations and the APP ITSELF, the quick reply being my favorite. I hated the quick replies on other apps, I tried almost all the texting apps out there and this by far is the best texting app. Highly recommended. -K
This is hands down my favorite app for texting. I have been using this app for years! I do have a request however. With the new Live Messages feature on the Note 8, it creates an animated Gif and the GIFs are typically are over 10mb on size. When sending the GIF with the stock new stock Samsung Messaging app, the gif will be compressed and it will reach the recipient just fine. When trying to send the uncompressed gif with Textra, it will fail to send because of the file size. Would be possible to add the same compression functionality into Textra? Thank you!
I've been using Textra for about 3 months. My Messages app starting lagging because of all the texts I have, so I was looking for a new one. I liked Messages, and I just wanted something equally as simple. This exceeded my expectations. I love being able to customize the appearance of each conversation, because I love having a different color for each of my friends. All the options available in this app are easy to use, and the speed is much faster than my laggy Messages app. After a month of ad-free texting, I decided to spend the few dollars to go without ads forever, because it was worth it to not have ads for an app I use so much. I recommend this app to all my Android-using friends.
I've been using this app for a while now and the improvements and updates are nonstop! They just keep getting better and better. I've tried many other apps and the only one that was better was the Verizon messaging app. Until now! The new Media View is exactly what I've been waiting for. Now you can view all your pictures and videos at once within a conversation and also have the ability to delete as well. The customization options are abundant too. Very fast and responsive.
If you love messages, you'll love textra. I repeatedly get told by iOS friends the biggest reason they use it is iMessage. Naming group chats and bubble colors are the biggest named features, both of which are baked into textra. Plus you get a way better quick reply, scheduled texts, intuitive material design, and much more customization than default messenger or any other text client. Well worth the couple bucks for no ads. Great job delicious!
