Default text app

update at post 13

What text app works with the g pro? What are you using?

I had handcent but it would decide who to send texts to, not me. So i uninstalled.

IMO Handcent is the way to go. NOT the 5.0 version though. I use the 4.9.1 version and it works great. I have tried sooo many because I want group messaging to work and it does. I have tried them all and even the lastest EclipseSMS. That app would not run on my OGP. If you want the APK for 4.9.1 you can try here: http://dl.papktop.com/2013/05/Handcent_SMS_4_9_1.apk

I've never had it send to the wrong person. Good luck. I have used them all. I also like the Private message feature and the scheduled text option.

Don't forget make it the DEFAULT messaging app for SMS and MMS within Hancent settings. Also under application settings turn on Thread Group messaging it's THE last setting on the Application Settings page. Glad it's working so far. Just NEVER update Hancent through the Play store and you should me good. Always restart your phone after app install, at least I do.

In the Play app turn off Auto-update apps. Open Play hit Menu>Settings>Auto-update Apps>select Do not auto-update.

Glad I could help. It's taken me a along time to get to an Text app that does what I want. The group messaging can have slight delay sometimes. The app catches up quickly though. Meaning it takes a few seconds for the message to be joined with the group message. Totally worth it though. If you text with any iphone peoples they will thank you.

Default Changed to Textra

Since posting to this originally I have changed and started using Textra. It works great with group messaging including iPhones and is fast. Doesn't have all the features of Handcent but I think the speed and reliability are better. Also there is an Emoji plug in also that works well. Dev seems to work well with feedback.

Just a another suggestion that has been working really well.

Hover Chat is by far my favorite. The pop-ups appear as just an icon on almost any screen and you can read and immediately make the message go away. It doesn't have meaningless updates every week like Go Messenger.

Just recenty discovered sliding messaging app. Not a free app but you can do so much with it. I like the way it notifies you with pop up message, and it shows on the side of your screen with senders avatar when you receives a message. Currently I am still trying to figure out all things this app can do. I was using hoverchat before this, which I really likes also but it is not compatible with cm11.
