    Hangouts is a must for me, and with free wifi video calling, and sending free pictures its the only one you'll ever need PERIOD!

    I would have nothing against Google Messenger if Google would just allow dismissing notifications to mark things as read. Same gripe about Gmail. If I swipe the notification away, I'VE READ IT. Make it an option at least so people who don't want the functionality can turn it off. It seems so simple, I don't understand why they can't add that.

    Except Google specifically told users not to get dependant on it for SMS, which makes a lot of us VERY nervous.

    Thanks for turning me on to Textra, this coming from a long time Handcent user.

    Even with my very simple texting needs I find text it wonderful. Specifically that I can swipe away a text and it delete from my notification bar, rather than having to open the app to delete it from my notification bar

    I just started using Evolve SMS on my Motorola Nexus 6. I like it better than the Google Message app because you can create custom message templates and save them. Makes it easier than having to type out. It has a nice clean interface, and seems simple to use.

    Yep. Textra is pretty awesome. They have done a good job adding features people want.

    For the people using Message+ from Verizon, are you able to make the notification tone longer than 5 sec? I have a notification tone that lasts around 30 sec but I can't get it to play till the end.

    I like using tetra or evolve but recently I've been using pulse it's in beta at the moment but it adds cross device usage like hangouts or imessage but with text messages. Pretty cool

    Am I then in the Dark Ages? And I should try Textra?
    If you're in the Dark Ages then I'm right there with you. I've used Handcent for years - no reason to change. That said though, I'm now curious about the answers here and am checking out both Chomp and Textra.

    FOLLOW-UP

    Looks like no one app does everything. I like Textra save for the lack of scheduled recurring messages. Chomp has that, but lacks some of the niceties that Textra has.

    And Google should just ditch the messenger app and focus on Allo

    Vice versa. Ditch useless Allo (that is what they will do in few years)

    I'm giving pulse a test run, to see if I like it more than Textra.

    What is great about Pulse is that it has a web app and Chrome extension

    Yeah I'm liking it so far. There are two things I might request from the dev: custom vibrate pattern and more granular settings for send delay. I'm used to my 1 second delay from textra and vibe customization.

    Does Textra have the ability to schedule a text? I use GoSMS, but I really need that scheduling...
    NO, it does not. I need it to send a text every night at 11pm - and it can't be set up to do that.

    However, you can get apps that do ONLY that if you want, and I'm trying that right now. Textra in concert with an app called (strangely enough) "SMS Scheduler".

    I guess it depends what the poster meant by 'schedule'. Textra allows one-time schedule, but not a recurring one. I can arrange for a text to go out at 11pm 3 days from now, however, not at 11pm on every Tuesday. I've always wondered why the developers do not accommodate that.
