Textra SMS

Textra SMS


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.

Textra features the new Lollipop Material Design look from Google. Fluid, intuitive and delightful!

★ Number 1 ranked SMS app
★ Highest rated at 4.5 stars
★ Smallest resource size at 3.5M

Comes with a bunch of great extra features like 800+ emoji's, heaps of theme colors, dark mode, floating Lollipop notifications, scheduled SMS & MMS, slide to delete, quick snap camera, multi-pick gallery, quick reply popup, better MMS GROUP messaging, audio messages and SMS blocker / blacklisting.

Plus 'oh so easy' default or per contact customization for bubble colors, signatures and notifications (icon color, led color, sound, vibrate, privacy, repeating and muting).

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

Simple. Beautiful. Fast.

P.S works with Pushbullet and Android Wear for SMS Quick Replying.

This app is smooth as butter. It's not bloated like Go SMS and Handcent. There are so many slick features, wow where do I start... Great work! It's simply gorgeous looking, feels so NOW with the material design colors. I never review apps, but this one is amazing, no more to say! The best SMS messenger app by far.

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 Lollipop - no more hangouts for me!

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. Do yourself a favor and get Textra messenger now!

Excellent free alternative to stock messaging. The program just works. You can set notifications, bubble colors and even delivery reports per contact. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!



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

* NICE! In Quick Pick Gallery you can now long hold on a thumbnail to expand it (shows bigger pic).

* Bug fixes.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our great users!

One big issue I don't know how to get this thing to send messages when I'm in a dead zone. If I send a message with no cellular service, it still won't send a message when service comes back. Other texting apps send messages when service comes back, this doesn't.

Very reliable This is an excellent very stable, and ultra reliable SMS/MMS replacement app. Not a lot of bells & whistles, but where it counts it just works. Just one suggestion, font and letter color options would be very nice

Best texting app out there I've been using Textra for a few months and haven't had any issues with it. I absolutely love the simplicity, design and overall speed of the app.
