The best SMS app Functional and attractive, this is probably the most reliable SMS app I've used. While I like the tabbed icon interface of hellosms more than hoverchat's bubbles, I find that this works better when it comes to MMS, a real sticking point for texting apps. This is wishful thinking, but I'd love an SMS app that also doubled as an iMessage/WhatsApp type app so you could do more robust messaging with fellow users while still being able to SMS everyone else. I know hangouts does this, but not well.

MMS issue When I send a photo using the floating window it will continue to send the photo every time I sent an SMS afterward through the same floating window until I close it. Please fix for 5 stars

Meh I've had app since it's early days and it is constantly improving. You finally get the last star from me.

One improvement needed. An option to delete all message threads at once. It's inconvenient to do it one by one.
