    Evolve SMS is the best texting app that I have ever used. The customization and features make it a winner for me.

    I use ChompSMS. Just got my X a few days ago but so far it's worked flawlessly for me.

    Hangouts here as well. I love the fact that I can have individual notification sounds for each person.

    I've tried evolved two different times and it lagged like death on my my moto X. One of the few times I've ever experienced lag on it period

    Google Voice. I will move to Hangouts if and when the integration occurs.

    That's what I'm saying man. Like I don't even know why people are denying that. It's miserable.

    I still use Google Voice when texting messages that are not time sensitive to my wife and family. But I've given up on it as my primary texting app.

    Unfortunately Voice has been unreliable and I will receive messages hours after they were sent. I use it for visual voice mail too. Seems like I'll get a voicemail message notification and suddenly it'll give me a couple of text notifications at the same time. As if it's saying "Oh yeah, BTW, here's some texts you've received over the past two days..."

    I also once in a while get a voicemail where the call must have gone straight to Voice because I won't hear a ring or have a missed call in my history. Doesn't happen often and I'm not giving Verizon $4/month for visual voice mail, so I'll deal with that error.

    I'm using Chomp SMS currently and I've used it off and on for a couple of years. I like the customization and it seems to work well. I spent a couple of months using Textra and really liked it. It's the same developer that created Chomp. I like the lightweight part of Textra, but it wouldn't hurt to make it look a little more slick in the UI. I didn't have any issues with it, but I ended up back with Chomp due to the customization. I'd use Hangouts, but the one thing I really have to have from any SMS app is repeat notifications. I receive alarm texts from work and it's important that I hear them even during the night so I need an app that can repeat the notification several times to make sure it wakes me up. If Hangouts can do this I haven't found the option yet. If that was added I would probably give it a try to consolidate everything into one app.

    I'm using hangouts. I'm slowly converting my friends to Google+ so hangouts is coming in handy.

    I'm assuming by "people" you mean me and others who are saying we are not having any issues with the evolve app. I don't know what you want me to say man, i have zero lag with evolve and i wouldn't have come in here to suggest it to the OP if i had issues with it. Evolve works flawlessly for me and I'm not going to apologize for it. Lol. I have used the stock app, 8sms and textra in the past year. All work fine for me, but i switched to evolve about 4 months ago or so and i don't have a moment of lag and i prefer it to the others. The dev also makes Falcon for twitter and i don't like it, so you know I'm not here to promote the dev.

    I just tried Evolve to see what it was like. I did not experience any lag in the two days that I used it. It worked smooth and fast for me on my Moto X. I still prefer Hangouts though and switched back to it and uninstalled Evolve

    I used to use EvolveSMS but it lags and some of the messages I sent weren't being received.

    Switched to Hoverchat and it's been great. I love the pop up icon that appears so you can just answer immediately without having to go to the individual SMS app.

    It's just crazy how different some of our experiences can be with certain apps. I like the look of that Hoverchat as well...might give that a go around.

    I started searching some of apps listed by some on this topic and I actually found myself switching to Textra now. Very simple and laid out well. It also has the pops up like Hoverchat, only in much larger form.

    I am now testing MySMS and the reason being is it allows me to text from my tablet also using my mobile number :-) I have tried a few others and they all had issues, this ones seems to work good so far and it's free.
