Best Text Messaging Application
I was wondering if anyone knew some of the best text messaging applications on the market. I am not completely sure if this is where I should put this, but if it isn't then I am sorry.
Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

+1 for Handcent
The pop up setting brings up a "pop-up" box in front of everything (any app you are in" with the text. It's similar to what iPhones do. Turn it on it the settings to give it a try. I've used it and it's very nice but I prefer to leave it off.
If you are using Handcent but asking this question what is it you are looking for? Handcent (in my opinion) is the best text app but considering you are using it and asking this question what features are you looking for?

I still prefer the stock messaging app, mostly because I don't like the comic book bubbles that the big two, Chomp and Handcent, use. That said, Chomp has a real nice widget, and I wish that there was something like that for the stock messaging app.

Since I have transferred over to using google voice full time its the one thing I miss about the messaging apps. I don't like the way voice handles threaded messaging, with a new thread for that person every day. I really miss the pop ups on handcent. I wish google open up their sdk so people could develop on it.

Not saying it happens for everyone. But I had a problem with Handcent receiving picture messages. I would have never known until a girl asked me if I got her picture. Because what it would do is make the notification noise, then try to automatically download the picture, but then when it failed it would go away and if I never watched my phone go through this process it would just make it seem like my phone made the notification sound randomly because there would be no icon or anything to let me know I ever had a new message.
Ive moved to Chomp and never had the problem since. But if ppl send you pic messages I would test it out with a friend to make sure you are receiving them correctly. Cuz like I said I would have never known anything was wrong unless I had someone tell me they were sending me a pic and then watching my phone go through the process of trying to receive it and failing.

i had crunch sms on my blackberry and just found out that it is available in the android market. it's well worth the download from my views. i haven't used the others but will check into them at one point or another just to know if i have the best or not.

I started out using Handcent, but did't like that I couldn't forward messages...or at least I couldn't figure out how to. I too used crunch sms on my BB and loved it. Good to know its in the market, I will give it a go.

I'm using the stock messenger with the SMS Popup app. I have issues, although minor with both Handcent and Chomp. Chomp only has bubbles, which I am not a fan of, no droid style conversations. Handcent has that, but in landscape mode on my Epic, only a small part of the conversation is in view, due to the large border at top and text entry at botton. This is not an issue in verticle mode.

Having been using Handscent since day 1 and had only one issue. Tried to send a photo and after it was resized it kept spinning trying to send. Determined there was a network problem at the time but could not get the app to stop trying to send the photo.
I was right by a Sprint store and they removed the battery but that did not stop the app from trying to send the photo (at least that is what it looked like). I had to clear all msg history for that person to fix.
Still a good app an no reason to change unless of course I need to forward a sms or mms to someone.
Love the pop up as I keep the phone locked.

I am using handcent and I love it. But I have one question. It says I have 5 nmessages in my notifications. Bar but I read thru all my texts that are in there. Howcan I clear them. Do I need to go into the stock app and mark then as read?

Just hit the clear button on the notification drop down. You should also go into the stock messaging app and disable auto retrieve. Anything that would throw a notification should be disabled.
