    Default Which Messaging App?

    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.

    Go SMS Pro.

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

    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.
    It all started with the Blackberry Curve 8330----> LG G3, iPhone 6 Plus, Note 4, Blackberry Curve 9330 (long story short)

    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?
