    I use the stock as well but has anyone used the slide messaging app? It's relatively new but it looks pretty cool

    I've recently downloaded Line and Kakao and I like them both. I would use them more except not too many of my friends are on there.

    I love using the stock jellybean messaging app along with a popup notifier called glowfly. I've tried many popup apps and glowfly works the best for me. Very nice dev too.

    Glowfly is great, I agree. But it does come down to the app that all contacts are on..

    I just discovered Text By Voice.
    You start it when you get in your car and you don't have to touch it again. Total hands free.

    Unfortunately, Handcent Pro is the only messaging app that lets me send pictures with Sprint.

    Is anybody running glowfly on the HTC one? Cannot get it to show on my lockscreen. Emailed them, they think it could be HTC have customized the lockscreens?

    I like Line and Pinger.
    Line has a bunch of cute icons for users, some of them are pretty funny ...
    If you aren't into icons that much, you'll probably like Pinger, which you can get unlimited text.

    There's many in the Play Store to choose from. I'm currently using Handcent and bounce back to the stock 4.2.2 messaging app.

    The only text messaging app I use is Textra. It is smooth, simple, and has a nice UI. I switched from Go SMS Pro to Textra.

    Textra looks nice, too bad they don't support MMS.

    Definitely. I don't send a lot of pictures, but I receive at least 5-10 a day for my work.

    Huge issue with the message apps that come with Android is that it does NOT support GROUP MESSAGING. It supports as many contacts as you want to send message to. But you cannot go back and RESEND to those contacts again. You have to start all over inputting each of your contacts. I just found out today so now I have to go and find another message apps that supports group messages. Too bad as I really like this apps.

    First let me way I recently switched from an iPhone to my S4, so the android experience is relatively new to me.
    I've been using the stock app for msging, but the one quirk that bugs me is when I get a new text from someone and I open the app, it doesn't immediately go to the new text msg.
    I've looked through settings and can't find a thing that would impact that...but it seems really dumb to do it that way, so I might just be missing something?
