Textra SMS


Textra is a seriously beautiful, feature rich SMS and MMS replacement app.

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.

Includes a bunch of great features like 800+ emojis, GIPHYs, dark mode themes, floating notifications, quick reply popup, better MMS and GROUP messaging (works with iPhones). Plus 'oh so easy' default or per contact customization for bubble colors, delivery reports, multiple signatures and notifications (icon color, led color, sound, vibrate pattern, privacy, repeat frequency, pebble alerts, floating, popup or simply turn off notifications; great for muting group conversations!).

It's pretty bloody special; try it, tell your friends, shout from the treetops, but most of all enjoy it!

Simple. Beautiful. Fast.

★ Super small install size!

The VERY best FREE messaging replacement for the stock app on the galaxy S4. SMS is fast, and group chat MMS works perfectly as well. I am on Sprint (which supports MMS over WiFi) and Textra is the ONLY third-party messaging app that works with MMS on WiFi!!!!!! Plus it's FREE, no ads. BUT you MUST uninstall other SMS apps first, as they can interfere with Textra. After I did that it was PERFECT.

NICE! Now works on KitKat - no more hangouts for me! they added Font Size too, nice.

Simple. Beautiful. Fast. Even the dev's know their app is just that good plus it's free. Bar none, this is the best SMS/MMS replacement app I've ever used. As soon as I launched it the first time, I fell in love. Upon launch, Textra sets up all the technical stuff automatically in mere seconds. And boy, the speed doesn't stop there. I have about 60,000 texts. With my stock app, I'd have to sit there and wait forever for various hiccups and loading and blah blah blah... I've tried every other SMS replacement app I could find. Textra is the only one that handles all of them without skipping a beat. It also lets you customize settings for each contact. Bubble color, icon color, notification sound, vibrate pattern, LED color... everything I want. And it just works. I don't have to fight the app. The only issue I had was getting my MMS messages to work, but I emailed the dev's, and within TEN MINUTES they responded. Within one night, we had about 18 or so emails back and forth, and by the end of it, they had pushed out a new version of the app (1.27) and my issue was magically fixed! I have never experienced such great support for an app before. I was blown away. I look forward to all the love and care this app will receive! Do yourself a favor and get Textra now!

Excellent free alternative to stock messaging. The program just works. You can set notifications, bubble colors and even delivery reports *per contact*. It's great with Google Keyboard, love it. Emoji's work perfectly with iPhone friends as does the group messaging. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This app is smooth and does the important functional things perfectly. It's not bloated like Go SMS and Handcent. Works great with iPhone friends for group messaging and emoji's very NICE! Also splits messages for CDMA networks as well. The timestamp feature per bubble (drag left) is SOOO slick. Great work! Good for those with limited eyesight too, as you can make the font size much bigger.

Almost perfect This is the best texting app available. I really with, however, that it would do video compression when sending am MMS video, like the stock app. Other than that, no reason to use anything else.

Rawsome app...textra replaced my factory installed messaging application on the LG4 due to software issue. It has been 2 months and it is still not resolved... No matters... I will continue to use textra even after LG4 by Verison fixes messaging software bugs. Textra satisfies all my messaging needs. Thanks team Textra!
