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!
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
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!
Always trying others but always end up with this one... I am constantly trying other SMS apps. Some show some promise but in the end I *always* end up using this one. Why? Ultimately, I like it's simple, minimalist layout. This JB/KitKat layout is probably the best minimalist. It's better than Google's SMS/MMS app called "Messaging." Although Google's "Messaging" is nice, I'm not a big fan of the whole Material Design in Lollipop. I prefer the older JB/Kitkat layouts of the SMS app. Because I go back to this app so much, I donated to the developer to show support. Why? I believe that even if items are given out for free and I tend to use the item frequently, then it is a sure sign that I should donate to support the developer.
It could be a great app This app almost allows me to stay on a stock rom and while the lollipop themes are nice there are a few bugs that stop me from using this. Sometimes some avatars in the message list change to square until I kill and start the app back up. The notification doesn't properly clear if I wait longer than about 5 seconds to reply or mark read from the heads up notification. Other than that, this app is great. Just wish it was maintained still so I could use it.
