Once upon a time, I would have rated this app at 5 stars...but over the past few months, something continues to go wrong. Like now, I'm not receiving message notifications as I have in time past, where it shows a preview of the message coming in. Every update I've received to the device, seems to change something that was working properly.

Ever since my phone was updated to the 9.3.0 version without my permission messenger now just closes whilst I'm in the middle of writing a text. This happened to me more than 6 times in a row. I just wanted to answer that same one text. None of the text I had previously started was saved. Having to rewrite the same text over and over again is extemely frustrating. Please fix. I was happy with my older version thank you very much with no issues.

Please get rid of whatever shortcut/gesture is used to send a scheduled text, or make it a setting that can be turned on or off. Countless times I press the send button to send a message and almost 50% of those times, the scheduled text window opens instead. Maybe my phone's touchscreen is sensitive, but it shouldn't be this easy to accidentally do. This is otherwise a wonderful and highly customizable SMS app that I'm happy to continue using!
