If you want to try a nice alternative to Google's Hangouts application, or the default messaging app that comes with your phone, Sliding SMS is worth a try. It is actually the stock CyanogenMod M10 messaging app, with sliding conversation interface, that can be installed on any Android Kit Kat, Jelly Bean, and Ice Cream Sandwich phone...

I use this app. It's awesome and the developer is on XDA all the time and updates the app frequently.

I don't mind hangouts but the only one feature I HATE is when you send and receive a message while the keyboard is still up, the messages go behind the keyboard and you can't see them. You either have to slide the page up or click the back button to hide the keyboard in order to read the sent and received messages. This should be automatic like every other messaging app does! I HATE this so much. Besides that, I think Google is doing an "OK" job with Hangouts.

When using gmail or the messaging app, I've noticed a glitch when pressing the menu key.
Upon pressing the "menu key" and then "attach file" you will notice that the keyboard doesn't dissappear which means I'm unable to select the option required
Pressing the back key to clear the keyboard brings me back to the beginning.
It's only a minor issue but it is frustrating as my Galaxy Note 2 is my main means of communication, document production etc.

Total app size after installation? I'm running out of system storage and I want to replace the old Messaging app with this one
