Best text messaging SMS replacement apps for Android
posted by Daniel P. / Aug 08, 2014, 8:06 AM
Google Hangouts, or whatever the phone maker has plopped on your unsuspecting soul, you can swap the default text messaging app with something readily available on the Play Store, and some of those apps will serve you better, and look as you please, introducing skins and themes into the mix.Yep, if you don't like
There's no shortage of apps that manage your phone's Short Message Service (SMS), or, as they are commercially popular, text messages. In addition to various themes and layouts, you can get a bunch of extra functionality like scheduled group messages, batch delete, tabbed layout, and many more. The most popular ones like Go or Handcent, might already seem a tad bloated, but we've rounded up some other of the fine text messaging replacement apps for your Android phone in the slideshow below, too.

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.

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.

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
