    I've tried just about all of them but find myself always returning to the stock app - but I do use SwiftKey.

    Handcent here. Do you use the "message read" indicator? I do here (available in both apps), and every single message says "unsuccessful"... despite the fact that they went through just fine.

    Hangouts but only because it integrates well with my Moto 360 watch. Before I had the watch, I used the default message app on my S3.

    I use SwiftKey for keyboard and Textra for SMS. Hangouts for the occasional google chat. I prefer dark backgrounds in messengers when possible. Screenshot of SwiftKey and Textra:

    Was using the stock app until Kit Kat. After Kit Kat I could only see 2 or 3 lines of text while I was composing and had white background instead of black so I went to 8SMS which is very, very close to the stock app but gives me back a lot more real estate to see/review what I'm typing and I can select background color. Also use SwiftKey.

    I tried the Verizon Messages+ app. Its not bad but seemed to bog the phone down a bit so now back to stock.

    I've heard the Verizon Messaging app has some cool features like being able to check messages from any online computer.

    Verizon Messages+ should not bog the phone down. I have used it the past year on my MAXX and it flies. On the Turbo, you should be more than fine. It is great because the texts sync with the Messages+ app on my Nexus 7. I use Moto Connect and the Chrome extension to text from my PC.

    I'd never even tried the Verizon app until I saw your post and have always used the default Messaging for my needs. I tried Hangouts a couple of times and personally, find it cumbersome.

    To my surprise, I love the Verizon version. The little customizable features are a nice touch and it's simple, quick & fast. Thanks for posting, had I not seen it would probably have never tried it since I'm not usually a fan of Verizon apps.

    VZW website has a M+ portal page that works in any browser. I have a pinned tab in Firefox that brings sync'd sms to my computer. Also love having sync'd sms on my wifi-only Nexus 7. Pains me to admit it, but VZW actually got something right here...
