"The New SMS"

Reviewed by / Feb 26, 2015

Download this app and set it as default to receive all the SMS via Textra

Textra SMS is an Android message application that is set to substitute the default Android app, which most people seemed not to like.

This app will group and organize all your SMS while managing floating notifications and making it extremely easy for you to make the most of your messages and communicating with your friends.

Take a look at the settings to change your customization options and personalize the app just for you.

The app is intuitive and simple, so you won't need any extra instructions to start using it. Discover all the new features by downloading and reading the information (snap camera, scheduling, emojis, etc).

DELICIOUS INC. is the developer of Textra SMS, a highly usable messaging app which is focused on an optimal design and ease of use. Try it out with Pushbullet and Android Wear.

Developer's original description available here
Let's face it, the stock Android Messaging app really sucks! So time to try something new, but it has to be pretty special, right? It's here, it's called Textra and it's a seriously beautiful way to text.

Textra features the new Lollipop Material Design look from Google. Fluid, intuitive and delightful!

Number 1 ranked SMS app
★ Highest rated at 4.5 stars
★ Smallest resource size at 3.8M

Comes with a bunch of great extra features like 800+ emoji's, heaps of material design theme colors, dark mode, floating Lollipop style notifications, scheduled SMS & MMS, delayed sending (stop while sending), slide to delete / call, quick snap camera, multi-select picture gallery, quick reply popup, better MMS GROUP messaging, audio messages and SMS blocker / blacklisting.

Plus 'oh so easy' default or per contact customization for bubble colors, signatures and notifications (icon color, led color, sound, vibrate, privacy, repeating and muting).

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

Simple. Beautiful. Fast.

P.S works with Pushbullet and Android Wear for SMS Quick Replying.

Textra is a seriously beautiful, feature rich SMS and MMS replacement app.

    Freezes momentarily when making voice recordings, freezes momentarily when I hit send because it thinks I'm trying to voice record

    I have tried pretty much every text app in the Play Store, even Google Messenger that is very look alike Textra, and I can tell beyond anything, this is the lightest, fastest, handy text app out there... Is fast response and the best is there is no lag. Plus the Material Design look makes it a one of a kind. Simple and elegant, that's it.

    Really pleased with textra. Good for sending to groups, singles and favourites, like the signature facility it remembers people who you don't want to add a signature to. No problems so far.

    For aaaaall the stuff it does, and all the cool icons it has (I finally have that "100" emoji I've seen around), it doesn't have a setting for changing individual text tones. Seems like a basic thing to have in this day and age. Now I don't know who is texting me based on tone. I have to actually pick up and look. Small but important inconvenience. Will probably uninstall later today. Shame too, c

    I switched from Apple recently and I hated the garish, multicolored message app that came preloaded on the Note 4. This is a much cleaner, easy-on-the-eyes design, plus it has Emojis. It's just a good app that does what it says. 5*
