So much easier This app is perfect, I needed an alternative to Verizon Message+ and this is amazing. The ability to reply while staying in the app I'm currently in is extremely useful. 10/10 would text again.

Works great has anyone been able to receive picture messages? I think I am missing something.

Great app But when I compose a new message, the app freezes for a minute or two and is unusable for that time period after I send it. The only thing that alleviates it is killing the app and reopening. Very frustrating and inconvenient. Otherwise, is a wonderful app

Font color Will give it five stars when you can change the font color in respect with a custom background. Anything darker than stock, you cannot see the text you're writing until it's sent. Other than that, great app!
