Very clean and fast. Offers what other messaging apps don't, which is the ability to have the app turn on and off your mobile data when group messaging or receiving pictures or videos. If you are like me and don't often have your data on, this feature is very important. That feature alone drifted me towards this app, but it is also easy to use. It would be nice for this app to have a little more customizability when it comes to the interface, and I wish it displayed unread messages number on the home screen, but other than that, it is a great app.
Perfect! But... Please support dual sim phones. Not on sending but please put sim indicator where the message has been sent or received (sim1/sim2) that would be a big help, since dual sim can set the default sim for sending in the main Setting so no need for it. Just help us not to be confused where the msg rcvd or sent like the stock Messaging app. and this is perfect plus elegant! And please add Signature too but a signature like what Textra does wherein you can create multiple, and choose separate it from text editor!
Best for Android Wear There may be others that work, but so far 8sms is the only messaging app I have found that allows you to mark a text as "read" from your Smartwatch. Most texting apps will let you clear the notification, but it still shows as unread in the app. 8sms lets you clear the notification with a swipe or mark it as read. Only missing feature is scheduled text. I would also like to see a little number displayed on the icon when I have unread text. Many other messaging apps do this and gmail does now as well.
Worth every penny This functions immensely better than my standard messaging app. I don't mind forking over a couple bucks for a quality product and that's exactly what this is. Not only is the set up relatively simple but, with the trouble shooting guide, any questions I might have had were already answered. Will continue to use as long as I can!
Awesome app with great functionality but one thing... Great look, feel, layout... Love the dark theme, and ability to delete all texts at once... but all my incoming mms picture messages are compressed before receiving them, coming in at very low quality (video as well) even after raising the mms size in settings. Outgoing mms my recipients have no issue with quality but sent from them to me its an issue; I cant even read the grocery list my old lady sends me... This is not an issue when I revert back to the stock messaging app
I used to love it But in the past week people haven't gotten my texts until hours to days later and vice versa. Used to be fine. It's not my carrier, as all my friends who have Verizon have no issues. This will go back to 5 stars once I can fix this issue. Any advice? EDIT: CLEARED DATA AND CACHE SEEMS TO BE OK NOW
