I've gone between GoSMS, Evolve and now,Mood Messenger. Out of all 3, Mood Messenger is my absolute favorite with Evolve coming in second. Very clean customization interface, all of the bells and whistles you want for free, a private box, and easy to use. I hope they never get rid of this!
This Message giving you a simple and easiest way to communicate with your friends by audio calls or Audio messages. yes, you just need to press the icon of Speech. If you are missing someone deadly then why are you waiting for, just click on the video icon and start a video call where you can see for seeing.
mysms is like pulse that is free. only with a pretty ugly icon.
it even have a tablet app for your tablet. i use that tablet app apk on my second phone, so that both phones can send and receive texts with the same phone number!
Textra is a great app. I've been using it for a couple of years. Be nice if you can change how you scroll on the message but that's a personal thing. I rather look up seeing them. Coming in than looking constantly looking down.
Textra is great
John Edmonds - Just tried setting up iMessage with iPhone to sync text messages to brand new 6th gen iPad and I finally gave up in disgust. A menu items was missing and no amount of cleverness could get it to appear. There is really nothing Apple offers that's worth all of the limitations they impose on their users. CM Browser on Android blows away both the Facebook app and Safari for using Facebook which is a bit insane. Apple creates limitations to keep app makers from surpassing its products. When I charge my Android tablet it looks like an aquarium but I couldn't get that basic function on iPad. Not to mention the pain transferring files was between iOS and Windows, athough I think they have ironed that out and now iTunes isn't deciding to delete my files from my computer without my permission. 😔
Textra was my fav sms app worked like a charm. Then I changed phones and It wouldn't send pic messages. reached out to Textra, didn't get any response. Reach out to the phone manuf..no action...reach out to my carrier..sent me through the whole troubleshooting, and at the end of the day was told that it was the app....I even upgraded textra
Pulse SMS is really great. If you are coming from iOS, it is the next best thing. Actually better in one aspect: I have a Pulse app on my Windows computer so I can text/mms from there. All messages synced in the cloud. It is also very clean and responsive, looks and works great.
Mood messenger is by far the best texting app I noticed. Has themes, over 100 different fonts to choose from and if you ever have any issues with the app, you get assistance the quickest. My least used SMS app (I switch it up from time to time) is Textra. It's more boring to use than Android Messages.
I like the LG stock messaging app on my G6 for simplicity. I have used Textra and ChompSMS which are nice customizable sms/mms apps. But my new favorite is PulseSMS. Being able to use it on my Windows laptop, G6 and iPad makes it a great iMessage replacement (I recently gave up an iPhone for the G6). Definitely worth the money for the lifetime subscription.
Yeah, I agree. That's one of the greatest reasons I hear why Apple users stick with Apple products, is because of iMessage. So it's a small thing, but small things make the user experience enough to stay within an ecosystem.
yea no effort put into it at all .. i dont understand why cant they make an app that looks exactly iMessage , and make it work together..its just somehow the developers always seem to make the apps look smoother and nicer for iOS
Coming from an ex iPhone user, messaging on Android is a fucking nightmare. Any media sent can't be viewed unless it downloads and saves to your camera roll. What kind of shite is that? WhatsApp is a nightmare, you'll have a folder filled with 1000 images in a week.
0:15 I feel like I'm beating a dead horse here but the creator of "gif" does not reserve the right to alter the English language because nowhere is there a "j" or even a "j" sound in the words "Graphics Interchange Format" so people that say "jif" need to learn to say it properly
John Doe haha to start my question had no ill intention but regardless this is the internet haha
Two what’s app has over a billion users it doesn’t get anymore “universal” and internet is just part of life (to those who’ll watch this video so to those without an internet connection this video is irrelevant anyway).
I get your point though, still I have no clue why anyone would use sms.
Hy there to you all. I have a question about those app, if you could answer me.
I search for a messages app that can combine chat entries from the same contact in the same windows. So, if a contact in my list has more numbers and gives me a SMS from different numbers, I would like to see them in the same window and to have the whole conversation in the same place. Also, I would like to have the option to reply to a specific number, the last one or the one that I have select, and not use the feature of sending a message to all the numbers that contact has, but only to one of the numbers.
Do you know if any of those apps have this feature? Or any other app?
Thank you very much for the answer, and Happy Holidays!
