    I have evolve sms and I like it, but hangouts has matured and it is my favorite at the moment.

    Has it gotten less laggy? The last time I used it for texting it lagged a lot.

    Seems fine to me, I have been using it as my main sms app for a month or so and kind of like it's simple clean layout, not as pretty or feature rich as evolve sms, but it does everything I need, except attaching contact v cards, and I have family using hangouts now so it's easier to use one app for everyone.

    I tried a few and the interface that I liked was Handcent so I stuck with that and have had no problems at all.

    I use Hangouts primarily. I try not send actual SMS's much because I have a weird Hong Kong carrier that is a good deal (10 GB across two phone lines for about 70 usd) but charges extra per SMS. Go figure. It's not a big issue here though, because everyone seems to use free messaging apps. So I send Hangouts messages on Hangouts. I use QQ/WeChat as a backup for people who don't have Hangouts. And I have WhatsApp on my phone, although I don't use it much.

    I like Hangouts well enough. No serious problems with it.

    And just to be clear, the SMS messages sent through Hangouts DO NOT get sent to Google's servers right? It just stays on my device?

    Nope. Doesn't go to their servers.

    Been using hangouts, it just works well and I like the sms/hangouts integration.

    Before that I was using evolve.

    The SMS part of hangouts works just like any other sms app, through your cellular voice connection, not google.

    I use Textra. I started using it when I got my AT&T G2 because group message didn't work properly. Although that was fixed, I still liked Textra better than the stock app. Its a simple app that works great. It lets you pick the color of the bubble and text, background dark or white, color of notification indicator, and notification light color, and other options. Its free, and developers respond to questions about setup and appreciate feedback about use.

    It doesn't. I think that would be against privacy laws in the U.S.

    I have tried a bunch of different texting apps. I don't know why but I just really like trying different ones. I have finally landed on textra for good. I have been using it for at least 6 months now and I haven't found anything better, faster, or more stable.

    Yeah, right.

    1) Since when do privacy laws mean anything in the Patriot Act, FISA, and TSA poisoned US?
    2) Since when would Google throw a valuable source of data to the wayside? They screwed us with the surreptitious collection on a massive scale of WiFi addresses while shooting Streetview photos too, remember? Twice!

    whatever happened to just using the standard messaging app that came with the phone lol -

    I use the standard app and Whatsapp - I tried to use Hangouts but I got frustrated at it; my wife is in my contacts as "Wife" but when I use hangout it doesn't display her contact name "Wife" it displays whatever she has down as her Google profie i.e. Angela Oates - so this annoyed me lol
