    Textra by far. It's intuitive, good looking, fluid, and it works very well.

    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.

    And it's not a text messaging app, it's a messenger app. There's a difference.

    Chomp SMS is the best 3rd party app i've used. I like the stock android but hate that it doesn't have the native popup option.

    You have to push send. You can't just say it.

    Well then how can it be totally hands free? I thought the point of hands free texting apps were just that.

    Default Re: text messaging app with expanding text field/box?

    Does anyone know of an app that will show your entire text as you type it? I don't want to scroll through my text to add or make changes. I only have 4 lines of text showing at a time, don't want to buy a new phone, but can't deal the such a limitation. Please help. I have looked at textra and it is only 3 lines. Please anyone can you help find an app that shows your text while typing?!!

    Textra over stock, Go SMS, and Handcent. Accompany Textra with Mighty Text and I am very happy.

    My suggestion and favourite messaging app is here https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tyeightsms.mms

    Very much stock messaging app with great extras, and group SMS is a breeze.

    Textra as far as a stand alone app. But I use Google Hangouts now so I can get used to using stock and love it as well! They both have their minor small issues but over all they are both GREAT choices!

    Have you ever been accused of mass texting your friends? With MasSMS, impersonal mass text messages will be a thing of the past. MasSMS allows users to customize mass text messages to include each of your recipient's name within the message. This feature will allow users to mass text large groups of people while still personalizing the experience for the end-recipient.
