    Default What is your favorite messaging app? (2012 edition)

    Some of you might be wondering why we're deviating from the polls that currently exist, and trust me, we've got good reason. The last time we ran a "Best Of Android Apps" article was about a year ago, and the Android landscape has changed pretty significantly since then.

    These polls are starting nice and fresh, so we can get a true idea of what apps are worthy of being called Android best, so sit back, buckle up, and get voting.

    I use the stock messenger for ICS. Why slow it down with anything else?

    I hate the fact that you can't go down to the next line and that you can't send an sms to a group ...

    seams that those features are greatly missing from the stock ICS sms app... strange that Google didn't add those features to JB

    Use to be GO SMS Pro but switched to stock until they update supporting expandable Notifications in Jelly Bean.

    Use to be handcent, just switch to GO.... like the feature with stock ICS on galaxy (just hold to your face to dial) but I love unique individual tones for texting!

    I tried most of these when I first got my phone. A lot offer nice features, but I prefer the default interface of the stock android for sms.

    What I would like is a good sms enhancement app. Something that lets me schedule a txt for later. I know there are tuns of these, but they all have low download counts so it seems hard to find which ones are worth trying. Anyone have a favorite. I don't mind buying the app if it is good, but I need a free trial version to play with, a lot of comments complain about scheduling txts and then having them get sent at the wrong times, seems hard to test in any reasonable amount of time.

    Handcent does that--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ndcent.nextsms

    I use to use GO SMS Pro but they started charging for features so switched back to Handcent. I also think Handcent is the only 3rd-party SMS App to currently support the JB-style Notifications, which is pretty awesome.
    My only complaint is the way they handle Copy / Cut / Paste, but I rarely use those so it's ok for now. I've Emailed the Dev & they're working on implementing the stock functionality.

    Lately I'm real digging "Messaging 7"--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=com.np.wp7msg

    Compliments super well Launcher7 & StatusBar+ in terms of the WP7 look & feel.

    For those of you using GoSMS, the reviews for the current version are really bad. Can you guys vouch for them being wrong?
