Review Textra SMS

Kevin Vadala
9.0Excellent
Looks great, very good features
I encountered some errors
Textra for Android is a clean texting app that feels very similar to QKSMS. It has a clean color palette with color customization available, and it also has a similar quick notification feature. I have alternated between QKSMS and Textra because they feel so similar. Textra may win some points in terms of functionality, but QKSMS wins in the style department and for some unique features which are handy. Overall, as is the case with most texting applications, it really just depends on how you feel about the app. There aren’t too many must have features in any of them.
Thankfully, Textra feels tight and useful. The interface isn’t anything too showy, but the colors and the interface look good. It’s not as harshly colored as something like hangouts, and it looks a lot better than something like the default messaging app on my galaxy S4. For some reason, Textra just feels like a blue app, because it has the blue icon. But don’t let that deter you, because you can force any color you want at it (well mostly).
Does Textra offer anything amazing? Well it says it has the first lollipop design, but other apps look great too - namely QKSMS. It does have emojis, GIFS, dark modes, and a variety of blocking options. It works with Android Wear and PushBullet, and is quoted as being “smooth as butter”. So yes, it has a lot of good features. There is also a quick compose feature, but I never used it and didn’t enjoy how it stuck to my notification panel.
Textra is a solid app that should offer surprises to those changing from a stock app or one of the older texting apps. For those who love color options, it should appeal in terms of design and it retains a lot of functionality - although I had some issues with MMS related to some sort of carrier issue.

Textra dies have good features

But if you have a Mobile & a Tablet,, Either Android or iPhones (doesn't work well on Windows), you can once again link your Tablet or Computer right to your Mobile. No more need to run for your mobile to answer a, Text.
