"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 4M

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.

    Love th app, just wish it allowed you to send messages to a group individually. Some times I need to send the same message to several peoplee, but I don't want to send it as a group message. It's the one feature I miss from the stock messaging app

    For some reason the app takes forever to pull up contacts when I create a new message. At least a full second from when I type a name in until it shows me my contacts.

    Works OK for SMS, but I've never been able to get MMS working correctly. With manual settings set for my carrier, & with "Activate mobile data" ticked (MMS doesn't work at all without this ticked), every time an SMS or MMS is to be sent or received, Textra will turn off wifi, turn on mobile data then constantly switch between the two until human intervention, thus drastically draining the battery.
