Best text messaging SMS replacement apps for Android
0. phoneArena 08 Aug 2014, 08:06 posted on
The beauty of Android is that you can ditch most of the stock apps, if you like, and replace them with third-party ones, in case you aren't satisfied with what Google or the default phone manufacturer overlay are offering you. This goes for alternative browsers, galleries, music and video players, but even for dialers and text messaging applications...

I really like the G3's stock text message app.

Textra is another one. Did you notice that the post with android not ready for 64 bit is now removed? Strange. Anyhow it was so partizan opinion and so full of hate one.

Textra is what I use as well. Really love the design and features.

Hangouts is pretty slow. e.g. when starting a new conversation, it searches through all of your contacts (even those without phone numbers). Also ugly with no customization at all.
My vote goes to hello sms. Minimalist and the most efficient for texting purposes.

mySMS is the best one I've ever used. Also comes with desktop, web, and tablet clients so you can text from any of those too.

How come no one can make a sms app that allows someone to text anyone they choose even if they don't have the app. I have tried many. To send pics, vids, ect it sends that person a link to what you tried to send them. I know no one that wants or will click a link to see pics or watch a video. Can someone help with this and tell me the best with most features to get?

I really like this fairly new texting (and instant messaging) app, called invi. I think it has a whole lot of potential. It has 'mini apps' that open in a half screen that allow users to browse and share media while texting. And you can text people without the app too, so coool
