    I just picked up my G3 and was wondering what messaging app everyone is using? I've been using the stock one but am not really a big fan of how it looks or works. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    I just use stock. I've never been crazy about messaging apps. Stock works fine.

    I used to use handcent but I don't use it anymore. I downloaded this Evolve and like it quite a bit.

    Went from Go SMS Pro to Handcent to Evolve. Evolve is the best of those by far.... Very far.

    Textra. I tried using the default app but didn't use it long because it sucks.

    I don't know that I minded the stock messaging app so much,I just wanted to be able to change lg colors of my text bubbles. I took a quick run through evolve and textra, but I couldn't really change the colors the way I wanted until I found Chomp, and I like it. It's simple and you can make your own color theme in minutes.
    Anyone using Chimp feel free to hit me up about sharing themes. I made two I like so far.

    Evolve was the best for me because it allowed custom colors for everything (great theme support) and was compatible with Pushbullet.

    I didn't mind the stock app but the color choices are pretty weak. I tried hangouts, but to be honest I hate the google integration with SMS. From the recommendations here I've gone with Textra and the TouchPal keyboard, love the dark look.

    Just switched from Handcent to Hello SMS and I couldn't be happier.

    Hello SMS is simple, intuitive and not another annoying SMS app.

    I've been using Chomp and really like it. I do have an issue with it where it never shows the messages as delivered. I had same thing on my G2, and they fixed it fast. It came back on the G3 and after 2 months it's still not fixed yet.

    I've tried Textra which is nice, but I really want an app where I can assign different notifications for different people. I mainly want to know if it's family like my wife or kids. If they need me I'd try to read it and respond faster if I am busy with things.

    I've been trying Evolve, but have missed several messages. If I have a text conversation open and put my phone down, it never notifies me again. So unless I keep looking or make sure i exit the conversation it never notifies you of a new message. To me that is a deal breaker since I don't want to have to keep exiting the app. With Chomp I have it set to vibrate on new message when in the conversation.

    I tried Evolve and really like it but it would not send pics for some reason. I think maybe I had a setting wrong somewhere?
