The game changer for me: When scrolling through old texts you can select what date to go to, AND there's a search feature. It's also reliable, easy to use, good customizing options, but that search bar is by far the coolest thing. I had decided to try Textra after my default texting app had an update I couldn't stand. I was skeptical about using a different app but now I'm never going back! This is the best app I've ever downloaded.
Textra Is the most beautiful app. That comes from the heart. I love it so much. It's customizable, but not like it's other app Chomp. It's the little things they worry about. And if you like the bigger things then Chomp is where it's at. But I don't like the big things I like the little things. And textra gets that. The UI is material. And when Google came out with material on lollipop it was the most beautiful design style I ever saw. So when I saw a texting app the uses material like it's supposed to be makes me happy. Now for my actual side notes and not boasting about Textra lol. The compose new message and transitioning to settings animations, they aren't very smooth. There not very material. That's the only thing though. Thank you for making this great app, Delicious.
I love Textra so much! I have been using Textra for about 3.5-4 years now and still haven't had any major issues at all. If there is a small minor issue and a annoying part of the app itself, the developer team fixes it in a very timely matter. Thanks Textra for always raising the bar week each update and never settling with mediocre or good y'all always strive to be great and the greatest.
I wrote this review about 5 years ago and I'll tell you it's more prevalent then ever. I love this messaging software. I've paid for PRO. I've tried literally dozens of texting apps, to get a proper black out experience, quick compose, logical set-up, and light weight app for quick loading and minimal memory use.... this is it... wow and WOW
Been using this app for a few years now and was the first app I moved to new phone. Love all the options it offers. Don't think you'll fine a better message app out there. Suggestion, when you swipe to delete would be nice if it was just one swipe and it's gone. Having to hit swipe/delete/delete is a bit much. Update, For some reason unknown to me, Textra has blocked one person from sending me text. I cannot figure out why. I get text from them in stock message app. Galaxy S8. Please help. Did I block them somehow, how do I get them unblocked. Nothing in my blocked file. Thanks, jjp UPDATE, I emailed Textra about this and I got a reply back within a few hours. Was a very easy fix. I just love this app and it has to be the best one out there. They are always updating and with each update it just gets better. Great work Textra and Thanks, jjp
The reviews keep saying it because it's true. Simple to use, highly customizable. I prefer ease of use to complicated features. Just wanna be able to text and respond to texts easily and without interruption to what I might be doing on my phone. Textra delivers what I need while also looking good doing it. This is the best messaging app I've tried.
✔ NEW: Settings > Web Previews (Off, Sent, Received, All). So configure whatever suits!
✔ You can now configure your preferred emoji skin tone. See Settings > Customize Look > Emoji Skin Tone.
✔ When scrolling and a new message comes in for that conversation, we now show a small counter near the top of the screen.
✔ Previously, when an ad animated in from top of the screen it moved the rows below it down, this was often annoying. So we have *moved* ads to the bottom of the screen.
✔ Bug fixes.
