    I have no texts I haven't read yet the Textra icon remains visible on my notification bar. When I swipe down there's no actual notification even. I even uninstalled Textra and the icon is still there.

    What's up with this???

    Interesting. Did you try rebooting your phone? If that didn't work try a hard reset by pressing volume down plus home button plus power button.

    I rebooted the phone normally and the notification was finally gone. I think for now I'll stick with Google's Messenger for my texts. Any other texting apps you'd recommend?

    Yeah, I really like Textra but it's buggy as hell. Swiftkey sometimes doesn't work well with it and now this hanging notification weirdness. So at least for now I'm done with Textra. I'd like to find a new texting app that has all of Textra's features but none of the bugs.

    Yeah that happens to me as well. Idk why it does it. It doesnt happen all the time but sometimes. Must be a bug that either Textra or Samsung has to fix. Still wont stop me from using Textra

    Chomp SMS is another good one. I also used Sliding Messaging with this one you can have a small bubble on the side of the screen and bring up the messages and be able to compose a message from any app and/or screen and it also has the quick reply feature.

    I believe it's a problem with Textra. When I first started using it 3 months ago it happened frequently, had to shut my phone down to clear it. Subsequently after every update Textra offered it happened less and less, now it's very infrequent. Tells me they know of the problem and are actively working on a fix.
