Best SMS app I've ever used, actually. However here would be my 5-star improvements: 1. Recently, my tect notifications have become intermittent. Sometimes i'll get them, other times not. PLEASE FIX 2. I LOVE swiping out of conversations. It would be great if this went both ways. Please change the swipe left shortcut from "phone" to "open conversation". It would make navigation SO MUCH BETTER. Thanks!
New new update 4/17... new phone and still loving this app, the support is great, when I needed it. The I updated are great. New update - i have recently changed phones, the App gets better on each software upgrade. Previous Update - I went all out and got the full program... best app I've ever downloaded, used and purchased. A few weeks ago I had to find a new texting app, the last one crashed and I got no response after two days requesting support. TEXTRA is great, the proactive support messages, ease of use and general abilities is a breath of fresh air. I've already gotten other friends to try it out and use it.
Update: So far so good, everything seems to be working okay. Super quick, great customization options, nice features like delay send. All really great stuff! But I always seem to be fighting with Textra to get MMS. Constantly having to switch between system and legacy settings and hoping that I eventually get the group texts/pictures/files that are sent to me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It's those moments that make me really contemplate going back to my stock messaging app. If it was more consistent, I'd give this 5 stars every time.
Loved the Textra app until I recently got a Moto g5 plus. There is no option to attach and send media directly on the app. Please update this. Update: I've checked every setting and looked through the entire app. On my last phone I was able to do everything. As soon I switched to the Moto G5 Plus I'm not able to send pictures or videos. When I hit the plus button I only see emojis. No picture option. No nothing.
Been using Textra for a while now. Every so often a bug will creep in to make me look for another app, at least until the bug is fixed. Seriously, though, can't find another app that is as easy to customize so completely and everything works as it should. MMS, notifications, etc. Just well done. Update 4-19-17: And now, they made it even better, with black bubbles. Just make sure you change views to check out all the options.
Honestly torn.... Really like Google hangouts and use the sms feature as well as the hangout feature.... Textra is a great app but makes me split my sms and hangouts.... So unfortunately I have to stick to hangouts.... But seriously love the app would recommend it to anyone who uses a single app for texting only..... Update: Google is going away with their sms feature and so now I am switching to the textra side of sms..... I love it so far... Just wish it had an option for using multiple numbers to send and receive SMS.....
✔ Added PURE BLACK theme option.
✔ Added Textra Settings > Customize Notifications > 'During Phone Call' options.
✔ Added ability to send an 'empty' message (some countries require this to top-up for example bus passes). Press space bar then press the send icon.
✔ Textra now works with most in-car bluetooth message systems, so for example if your car reads your messages, Textra will now mark them as read and clear the notifications.
✔ Bug fixes.
