Re: Best text messaging app?
I've tried a bunch of different ones and I always go back to Go SMS Pro.
Although, I haven't checked out Textra yet, will have to do that.
EDIT: Okay, I tried Textra for about 5 minutes and once again have gone back to Go SMS Pro.
Here's why... first, there didn't seem to be a way to customize the conversation appearance (i.e. make the font larger for my 50 y.o. eyes).
Second, I received a picture and when I tapped it to view it, I couldn't pinch to zoom. The width fits to the screen and that's it.
Finally, and this is the biggie for me, seeing as how Verizon's SMS reliability leaves a lot to be desired, there is no setting to receive verification that a text was received by the recipient. I don't mean a sent verification, I mean verification that your text was received by the other person.
Go SMS Pro does all this and a whole lot more.
Can you schedule a text in Textra? I didn't see that option, but then again I had seen enough to know it wasn't enough to satisfy what I've gotten used to.
Some say that GO SMS Pro is bloated. I say it's feature-rich.
Frankly, I really didn't notice anything special about Textra that you couldn't do with the stock messaging app.
Oh, and another thing I almost forgot. I really like getting a reminder notification sound (and a different one at that) when I haven't checked an incoming text for 5 minutes. Didn't notice that capability in Textra either.
As always, YMMV.
