Seriously Sucks The first 20 minutes after installing it kept showing the intro screen. I would tap the "touch here to get started" and nothing. So I left my phone alone for a solid 3 hours and just let the app get settled. I went to send a text and it kept saying not sent. I switched back to my old texting app and my phone was flooded with hours old text messages

So here's the thing.... **new update did not fix problem. Still freezes after first key press. Hate to say I wasted money on this app but beginning to think I have. Textra has been a much better mms app for me**

It's ok I've been playing with this app past few days and for the most part it is good. However, in order to do a lot of stuff you have to pay. Even to apply a free theme from Google play you first have to pay to "unlock the feature". Lots of other text apps out there which don't require unlocking for to use the full app.

Fantastic first impression. Update: Regular and appreciated updates from the dev. My only issue regards taking photos with the in-app command - if you switch from landscape to portrait or vice versa while taking a shot, the image is deleted. Running on Nexus 5.
