    Textra has always been my go to app. It's much better than the stock app.

    it's a nice texting app. You can customize it in almost every possible way. Good support for emoticons, gif and other apps (drivemode, android wear, gboard...). You can assign a specific tone for each contact.

    Though, i reverted to stock messaging app because textra failed to send mms for me (my provider set a 600kb limit on mms and textra doesn't compress videos when yo add them : both stock messaging and android messages can so...). Even though I contacted support about this, they replied back to tell me that level 2 support should recontact me and as of today they never did.

    Note : my S7 is still on Marshmallow...

    I have an issue on Textra with not being able to see messages that i have sent. I can see messages that I have received. This also applies to other 3rd party messaging apps. Any suggestions?

    My only gripe is when I hit send it closes the app and I have to reopen it every time to re-read what I wrote or others. This, even tho I have the option to do that unselected.

    I don't use Textra myself, but if you have not already tried, select the option and then unselect it again. See if that knocks some sense into it.

    Yeah, thanks, tried that a few times. Might actually go back to Message + as I liked that a lot and came over to Textra only the past 2 or weeks ago to try it out.

    That's what I used to use it is pretty decent, now I have it disabled and just use Messages. I am not much of a texter. I just send basic text now and then. I do see the attraction for Textra for those that are into it though.

    I don't know if it's the best, but Textra is my favorite text app. It does everything I need it for and I can customize it the way I like.

    I wish you could archive messages. I deal with so many different people I'd like to be able to swipe away things that arent currently pertinent. Thats why I like google's messaging app. I wish there was an option to illuminate the screen though. I also don't like how the pictures you take don't save to gallery

    I think it's the best. I love having different color notification icons for certain individuals that contact me and Textra is the only one that allows and works consistently.

    If you are on Nougat, I believe that this is a known problem to which Textra sent out a message. I had to adjust a setting (Settings>MMS>Behavior=System) in order to receive a picture from an Iphone. It works fine for me know.

    As to the OP's question, it's all personal preference. After the Nougat update I tried the stock apps again, but came back to Textra.
