This app is awesome, I use it on my phone and ipad. I never miss a message. It's the best messaging app I've ever used!!! When I got a new phone the app gives you the option to retrieve messages 90 days back. I can't tell you how many times I've had to go to my old phone if it was still intact to get old messages. Attach pictures, draw on them. Love,love, love it! Not sure about what others are talking about missing messages, sounds like network not messaging issues.
9/28/17: Back to its former greatness after a period of weirdness on one of my phones. Happy to give it 5 stars now. 2/9/17: What happened!? Unable to write or send msg on S7. Please fix! Now! Older: I like this app. However, it is missing the ability to speak messages. Aside from that, it is very easy to use and seems reliable. I'm in my second week of use and I expect it to get better from here!
Overall I'm very pleased with this app. However, recently it has reset itself twice to basic font and size etcetera. I also don't like that I'm no longer able to modify my signature per text without going into the settings; something I don't have time or energy for. On my last phone I was able to change the signature within the text body. Now it just just adds it at the end when you send it.
If you're wanting to tell a person off or wanna get a flirtatious message across to someone, this would be that app. Plus, you get to set up customs for each person you text so you can tell them apart, without sending the wrong text to the wrong person. ......been there before, haven't we all. I love how we're able to send voice texts and video through this Messaging App as well. Haven't used it yet, but I'm vouching it's a great tool.
I love this app. However, I use the Swype typing and if it fills in the wrong word (ex: 'time' for 'tomo') it will offer other words to choose, but sometimes when I choose the correct word it doesn't erase my old word, only the last letter ('timtomo'). This is super annoying to deal with, but other than that I love using it and have recommended it to others who also love it. Maybe you can fix this glitch?
I have to edit my previous rating of this app. Th ey were able to get the bugs worked out after the app update and it is back running smoothly. I have used this app for years and love it! I love the customization and the east user interface. I don't use it for anything other than texting so I can't speak about voice calls or video calling. The it thing I use it for other than that is to text internationally to Canada and it always works well for that.
#1 Messages & call ID app used by millions, with lots of great custom options
The Messaging application makes it easy to communicate with the people you want.
