    I've basically been a dedicated Textra user from day one of using Android, but I feel like switching it up a bit. I dig the minimal/material look I can get with it but I'm just wondering if there's a better alternative? Haven't ever really given Hangouts much of a go, or any other apps really. I was interested in using Allo until I read it can't be set as the default app. Are there any that make sending media files/etc a breeze? Occasionally have issues with Textra on that end

    What carrier? As much as I dislike most Verizon branded bloat apps... the Verizon Plus text messenger is really good. Better than stock.

    Problem with Verizon messaging app is it won't send the text to my gear s3.

    Do other texting apps like Textra support the Live Texting or whatever it's called on the Note 8?

    I just had to go from the default messenger that came with my T-Mobile Note 8 to Textra. It was the only way that I could get Live Message to work. I was getting errors that the message attachment was to big. Textra worked like a charm.

    I was using Android Messages, but I have been having problems recently both receiving and people on the other end not receiving messages. I switched back to the stock Samsung app and have had no problems.

    I'm just using stock messaging on AT&T at the moment. I do own Textra and have used it for the past year or so. I'm just digging the native integration with my Gear S3.

    Verizon Messages plus is my favorite. Very customizable, will work through wifi and can be installed on a wifi only tablet.

    I'm all about Chomp SMS. I love the amount of customization (enough, but not too much LOL), and very reasonable price ($2.69 iirc) to get rid of ads (which aren't too bad if you're committed to free-only). It's done by the same devs as Textra, but I much prefer this. Always the 2nd app on every new phone, right after Nova.

    On AT&T, currently have just been playing with the stock one while I look around at different options.

    The one thing I really, really like is the tiny, very subtle notifications that come on screen when receiving a text. I'm not sure if it's native to the stock messaging app or this version of TW in general?

    I bounce between the Samsung one and Verizon messages. I always set Verizon messages up because it allows me to text from my computer, and talk/text from my tab s2.

    Android messages. I really like it. Have tried several over the years. Very good with sending media over text. Never had an issue with it.

    I love Textra. But since the S8+ I've been sticking to stock Samsung Messaging app. Especially since it now allows GIFs when using the SwiftKey keyboard.

    I can't find the add signature option.
    Using stock or Verizon messages + and SwiftKey.

    I'm in the same boat, I really like Textra, but I need it to work on my Gear S3.
