Good, just doesn't have iOS 10 inking
It has its own set of built in animated gifs, which is nice though. How do I uninstall the animated gif sets I don't want though? Do I have to uninstall and then reinstall the app? Also would be nice if it automatically sent pictures using cellular data instead of needing it on. I tend to keep cellular data off most of the time due to battery life. Also, it keeps crashing

Mostly good
I like some things - the ability to set notification sounds for individuals - but would like the option to set it so when opening the app, it opens to the main screen instead of where I last left off. Also, would like the option to only show mobile numbers in the app. I'm not going to text a home or work number, and when the mobile number is the last one listed, the keyboard is often in the way. On a far out wish list would be the ability to set a text to send at a certain time. I miss that from my old app
Damion Miller review Damion Miller
I think this is a great sms messaging app overall. The only problem for me is that I use Google Voice for my main contact number. It would be great if Google would integrate GV into messenger so that messages would show from GV instead of my carrier number. I went into the settings and changed my ph# to my GV# but it still shows on the receiving end as my carrier number. I actually prefer this app over Hangouts but am stuck with it until they change this. If there are any other apps that seamlessly work with GV, I would use one of them.

SMS occasionally deleted
The app is fine, but occasionally when I type a message and hit send, the message disappears but does not get sent. This used to happen only once in a while but since the new update it is now happening upwards of 50% of the time. Also, the option to mass delete or auto delete messages before a certain date to save space on the phone would be incredibly helpful.
Philip Maxfield review Philip Maxfield
Why would you put out a messenger app when you have Google Voice? Then again, why can't Google Voice have the capacity to send and receive pictures? The Messenger app can't incorporate the Google Voice number. I love my Google Voice number and I use it with everything. I don't understand the conflict that you've created with both apps.

Dark theme + Privacy
I started using it today and tbh I liked it, it was simple and straightforward, also colourful. But I can't use it because it's too bright for the eyes. Please add a dark theme and maybe a little more privacy options like messages not visible in the notification area. And it will become my regular SMS app. Waiting for that update till them Uninstalling.

Suddenly stopped receiving text messages
I have installed this app on my nexus 5 and set it as a default sms app. It worked perfectly for quite some time. But after the last update or what, I can't tell you for sure, but I stopped receiving text messages. I noticed it because i couldn't receive OTP for online banking and some other important routine messages. So i set good old hangouts as default sms app and i received all the previous sms. So please look into it and solve it! Thanks

One thing to fix battery hogging
Jason Archer review Jason Archer
Great but needs access to clipboard
Seems to work very well. Much better than the Stock Samsung Messaging App on the Note 3. Only thing it lacks is the ability to access the clipboard to copy multiple previously copied text and pictures. Will update to 5 stars if this happens. It would also be nice if there was a "Mark as read" feature on the preview when messages come in.
Juan Ramos review Juan Ramos
Further improvement required
My review is still requesting improvements in the following areas: developing night mode, accuracy on the red message count, consistent bold text for new unread messages. Also, I don't think it's fast in terms of receiving picture text. I often wait longer here compared to Textra messaging app. Customization of thread list and chat bubbles are highly needed.
Ryan Baldwin review Ryan Baldwin
Good Messaging App
This is a pretty good messaging app. I can't compare it to default Messages since I never used that but I guess I could say Messenger worked well. The MMS slows down my phone but that's probably just my phone. I liked all of the features like different colored messages for contacts and archiving stuff. However, in the latest update it took away the unread messages bubble, which was there last update. Please fix this!
Jonathan DeLaughter review Jonathan DeLaughter
Horrible Emojis
Holy cow this is so bad! The emojis were limited in some capacity on this app but now everything looks horrible! Even the standard faces look like deflated gross jello balls. Please change the emojis back or at least give the option too for those with any taste and I'll switch back to 5 stars.

Need a small improvement/feature in this aap
When we receive multiple SMS from the same person, it gets collated as a group. Now within that group there are some messages that we want to keep and some we want to delete.. In that group if we can get a feature to check mark multiple SMS and delete it at one go.. this will be an awesome feature and i am looking forward for it. For example. .."Textra SMS" app gives that feature
Muhammad Tahir Iqbal review Muhammad Tahir Iqbal
Unlimited characters support
I have LG G Pro 2, Korean version. It's default message app turns sms into mms after 160 characters. I tried different apps to overcome the problem and here was the solution. But only a little improvement is needed. I can't select group from phone book directly as in default app. I wish to choose group and send SMS to all group already defined. Please do this. Thanks
The basic functionality is OK. But the lack of support for group-sms is hilarious!! Sure you can call it from within groups from BB Contacts. But a really clumsy solution. The limit to four lines editor with huge side margins is a grotesque 'solution'. Have a look and 'learn' from e.g. Textra. This STILL goes after latest design update...
