Works so much better than the stock app on HTC One X (ATT). Was using another app to customize notification sounds but Textra makes it so much easier. So many customizations options make this app a joy to use. Found a minor issue and emailed the developers. Received several quick responses and hopefully a resolution will be made available soon (seems I can't send a long sms message unless the "split long texts" option is selected). **10/16...just keeps getting better. Updates keep coming almost weekly.
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!
Best messaging app I've used. Integrates with contacts perfectly, and loads previous messages correctly, which another app didn't. Since deleted that other one so can't remember which one sorry...still unable to send MMS. Have tried different MMS settings in the app. My native messaging app sends them fine and Textra receives them. Thanks to great support available by email contact, I now have no problems. Brilliant. Get it!
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.
In my opinion, the best SMS app. Haven't used ALL of the features, but it has everything I need and more. I literally had to search for something to improve. What I'd like to be added: -an option to pin marked conversations to the top -an option to chose the length of the pause between the multiple notifications of a single message Still giving 5 stars :)
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.
✔ 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.
