very easy to use and very powerful. its really what androids sms should have been. the best part is its always growing and getting better to use every time there is an update. it should be the first app you down load. my friend asked me what is a good app for android. right away i said handcent sms. he said no way come on man. i said no you come on if you dont get that app we arent friends any more. so he got it. i dont know what i would do with out handcent sms. something else i love about handcent sms is you dont have to look for a new text. it shows its self to you.
