    Textra if you enjoy simple and easy to use. I like it, and they consistently update it with more features. It's come a way long way since I first bought it two years ago

    I use the stock and it works well. On my G4 I used Textra and loved it. May switch back if I get bored of the stock.

    Does anyone have problems sending pictures using Textra? I used to use Chomp years ago and I could never send pictures through it so since then, I feel that all third party messengers might not be as reliable as stock messengers when it comes to sending pictures or media files.

    I use Textra. The quick reply on Textra is awesome -- so is the customization in the sense of setting when the phone lights up and when it doesn't.

    Not saying that Google messenger is not a very capable platform, but when I found Textra, I stopped looking for something better.

    Don't know if you are coming from an iPhone, but textra has iPhone like pop up and reply options when you receive a text. The only thing I wish I can change, and maybe I can but I don't see how, is how you delete text messages. I wish I could just swipe and have it delete or long hold. I hate having to reach to the left side and hit the trash.

    Textra for sure! Although at this moment I'm still giving the stock app a shot, it's night and day over my Note 4. But I do miss the simplicity and theme options on textra (stock is close, but not quite the same). Quick reply is a godsend, I love having the pop-up without having to exit my current app. At a couple points in time I had issues sending pictures or any MMS on it and tried everything under the sun to fix it that I could find, but eventually it fixed itself. The constant updates are nice as well. It's super simple, super fast, I'll probably switch to it after this reply ha!

    Are you talking about individual messages or conversation threads? You can swipe a conversation thread to the right and hit the trash button to delete the thread.

    +1 for Textra, but it's all personal preference.

    Textra is amazing, I've used CHOMP, Messenger, Hangouts, LG Stock/Samsung Stock and nothing compares. Textra is always updating/innovating. I spent the few $ to become a "Pro" User and it was well worth it!
    I can't imaging texting life without it..

    You may want to change your MMS carrier limit. Go into settings > MMS > under "MMS Advanced" > Carrier Send Limit. I have mine set to 2MB and no issues.

    I have been very pleased with the stock app on the N7. I had been a loyal Textra user but have been very impressed with Samsungs improved functionality from the N4.

    I used Textra for the first couple of years after I switched to Android (from BlackBerry). Loved it, until they took away the option of contact pics being circles or squares. I HATE circles, lol! Wrote to the developers & they suggested ChompSMS (same devs), which still let you choose. I do like it, it's far more customizable than Textra, but the one thing I miss from it is the little contact pics inside the contact icon, of all the people in a group text. Chomp just has the number of contacts in that conversation.

    If the stock app didn't open links in a stupid built in browser I'd use it. It doesn't work half the time and I always have to use the option to open in browser to use Chrome. But now I'm using Google Messenger. I'm going to give Textra a try as it's been years since I've used it.

    I like Google messenger, but I've recently switched to Verizon Messages for the computer and tablet sync ability.

    I like Textra but this is the issue I'm having. I've been emailing with Textra and they are stumped. Maybe one of you folks have an idea.

    I'm texting my wife and want to send her a pic and hit the plus sign...

    Textra opens up a window with a little gallery icon and a few pics it considers to be recent pics.

    If I click on the little gallery icon it opens up "recent" - which is a nice idea - however...

    I upgraded my Note 4 to a Note 7 so all 2500+ pics on my Note 7 were "taken" on August 19th as far as the app knows so Textra orders them from oldest on top to most recent on the bottom. If I want to attach a pic I took on August 17th it's all the way on the bottom.

    I can click on the menu next to the word "recent" in the upper left then choose the actual Gallery app but it's kind of cumbersome vs just opening the gallery initially.

    What I'd like is for Textra to default to opening my actual pic gallery on my Note 7 vs. - which retains the pics in the order I took them from newest on top to oldest on bottom even after the upgrade.


    Anyone know the solution?
