    That isn't why I use a multi-tasking messaging app. I use it because I can then drag and drop to email, or contacts, or phone dialer, etc. All without having to cut and paste. To me that is the whole point of having a Note 4, to be able to do more, more easily.
    Have to agree here. Was using textra but realized that the stock messaging app offers a lot of things textra didn't.

    Google Messenger for me. I love how there's no lag, just super fast. MMS sending and receiving works with no issues and I never had to mess with apn settings at all and android wear functionality is great, just wish when you get a message the vibration notice on the watch was more than just the one short vibration.

    I use Text Plus a lot now. I don't know why because I used to hate it. It has the wifi calling, but not the best interface.

    I tried a bunch of different texting apps on my old phone, but always go back to stock. Multi tasking doesn't hurt either

    Same story here. Very happy with the switch. I backed up my texts in Go SMS first but got a pleasant surprise when all my texts showed up in Textra without my having to do anything.
    I got bored with Textra went back to gosms

    I started using textra today after this thread and like it so far. Haven't texted much with it yet but it does seem quicker than the stock app.

    How do you setup group messages on Textra? When I use it I get single responses from people on separate threads

    Google Messenger (speed and splicity is perfect). Simply the best. Beats easily stock app and Hangouts.

    Make sure you enable MMS for group chat.

    Which ones have a private box besides Go sms pro?
    I'd also like an answer to this question ^^

    The private box on GO SMS Pro is actually pretty impressive. It has the following features that I haven't found elsewhere:

    • hide the path to access the private box
    • block access with pattern or code
    • change private contact notifications (sound, vibration, notification bar icon, notification bar text, whether message text displays in notification bar, etc)


    It is easily the best way I've found to secure texts from prying eyes. Having said that, GO SMS Pro itself is heavy/sluggish, and their updates are terrible (they just keep breaking stuff, adding bloat, fixing stuff that doesn't need fixing, etc - I'm actually using an older version, intentionally.)

    I'm searching for another sms app that features a similar private box, but I haven't found one yet. Any suggestions?

    Have tries many and liked Chomp and Textra. After messing with all of them, end up back stock. Simple, fast and no issues.

    I'm currently trying Simply Text/Mighty text. I like it because is syncs with my computer, and I can text from the computer. Synchronizing has been pretty reliable so far.

    I was using the VZ messenger but it was flaky- sometimes not synching all messages on either the PC or the phone, and the PC app crashed a lot. I also can not stand software which locks in a window size and don't allow you to change it. VZ messages also used that ugly Windows 8 flat looking throwback to Windows 3.1 theme.

    My only complaint about the mighty text/simply text apps is not that you have to pay to unlock ALL the features, but that they want you to pay monthly. After using it for the last couple weeks, I'd happily pay $30 for the full feature version but I refuse to pay $3 a month.

    For me it's not being able to customize with the stock app. I can't even set different ring tones for each contact that I text.

    Sure you can. Go to contacts and choose to add another field.
