About this app

Textra is an alternative to your stock SMS/MMS app (that came preinstalled on your phone). So, whether you're looking for a faster experience, better customization options, more color or just a specific feature (like scheduling a text in the future) you've come to the right place.

Feature rich, notably 180+ material design theme, bubble & app icon colors. Light, dark, black, night & android screen modes, multiple bubble styles, scheduled (future) SMS & MMS, send delay, slide to delete, slide to call, quick snap camera, multi-select picture gallery, quick reply SMS popup, awesome MMS GROUP messaging, quick voice memos, endless GIFs, 21 text sizes, multiple font options, message blocker / blocklisting, pin-to-top, automatic video & picture compression, support for iOS reactions, iOS emojis & heaps more!

Customize your preferred theme & bubble colors, signatures and notifications (icon shape, sound, privacy, reminders, and muting) per conversation as well.

Get all the latest Android, Twitter, JoyPixels & iOS style emojis including diversity (skin tone). Just pick your preferred emoji style and express yourself!

NEW: Added support for Reactions (also known as Tapbacks) received from iOS Apple devices. So, for example instead of seeing an incoming message saying: Loved "See you at 9pm", you'll now see a love heart emoji superimposed on the message you sent. Just like on iOS devices, Facebook Messenger etc. You can also send reactions!

NEW: Copy Partial Text tap a bubble to check out this great new feature that allows you to copy any part of the text in a bubble!

It's pretty special; try it, tell your friends, shout from the treetops, but most of all enjoy it.

Fully compatible with Pushbullet, MightyText, Android Wear and Android Auto (car) for enhanced notifications and quick reply.

All Textra features are free forever. Occasionally you'll see an ad, or you can choose to make a once only in-app purchase to remove ads forever.

I highly recommend this app. I can customize ringtones for each person and color code conversations (I have chosen to set a theme of Hogwarts House colors for everyone's texts). The only thing I would really change is I wish there were more colors for the font for texts (only four). It's far superior to the app that came with my phone. I like that I can customize where the ads are in the free version. It's easy to sort out previously sent pictures from text too.

I love this app! It's so customizable, and they're always adding cool new features. They recently added the ability to react to messages, and to see react icons. It makes messaging more fun, and easier with my iPhone friends! I also recently had to contact them with an issue. They responded SO quickly, and solved my problem. I was shocked to hear back at all, much less within an hour!

Back using this again, and it has been stable. Noticed that it isn't clearing the new message indicator in app unless I open the message a second time. Tried reinstalling, hope it helps. Edit: Reinstall did not help, so it has to do with the script. Currently you have to press your back button (Android) after viewing the message for the new message indicator to go away. It will not clear if you read the message and immediately quit.
