Default sense apps on aosp

Hey peeps,

I'm running an aosp rom, have gone away from sense rom because of the speed, I find them slow. but I miss certain apps from the sense rom, mms.apk and mail. Im not keen on the aosp rom versions.

I've been looking around at using them sense apk on my rom but its either very difficult or impossible. is this right? if so what's apps do people recommended for email and SMS/mms?

You are absolutely correct, sense apps refuse to install on AOSP ROMs. I use the stock AOSP mail app but many use K9. Gmail can also be configured to import email from other accounts.

My current favourite mms app is Youlu

I'm using Kaiten for email (paid, slightly fuller-featured derivative of K9), and Pansi for SMS (faster than Go when I want to scroll back through a conversation, plus my phone location app complained that Go could conflict with it when sending instructions to the phone via SMS, though I prefer the theme I had with Go).

TBH I ditched Sense so long ago that I barely remember those apps.
