    This is the best messaging app ever. I've been using it for years, and there's no other app like it.

    So far like the app especially for group messages and photos. Would be happy to pay for the app to remove the ads.

    Great app. I've tried out many and this one fits my list of needs. Some twerks here and there and it would be perfect but hey, you're never gonna find something exactly like you want unless you create it yourself... NOTE TO DEVELOPER: How can I learn more about spoofing my messages through this app and if the receiver returns the text will it come back to you?
