    8SMS was my mainstay for a very long time. Debating returning to it or buying this.

    I had no idea Textra had ads until you guys said something here. AdFree FTW!

    Sad but true. It used to be free, but I was one of the lucky ones who got it for only 99 cents. Have no idea what they want for it now

    Text are marked sent by default but if you mean delivery status you can enable it under Settings - Advanced.

    Thanks, yes, I knew that, I have it enabled. I was referring to the received messages, not those I send. For example, if somebody sent me a text while the phone was off (i.e: after I went to bed), with 8SMS I could see the time it had actually been sent, not only the time when it had been received, which in that case would be as soon as I turned the phone on in the morning.

    With Message+ the "time sent" of the received text messages is not reported in Message Info (long press on message)

    How do you know if you are on a paid version of Textra? I don't see anything in the settings. I don't have ads. I want to say it's been about 2 weeks or so since I switched to it.

    I believe there's a one month trial before you'll get a notification and then start seeing ads.

    You will know when your trial is up. A big banner goes over your texts.

    I got a popup that my trial had ended. Now, the top "conversation" in my app is actually an ad each time I open it. The only thing that bothers me about it is that sometimes it takes a few seconds to load and shifts my actual conversations down one. I inevitably click the ad on accident. Not sure if they make their money from me opening the message or if I actually have to click through the link for them to get paid.

    Anyway, it's not too much of an annoyance so far to me other than me being too quick for it once in a while.

    I think that it could "feel" my finger getting ready to press and open the top text and changed right at that moment so you opened up the ad .. So I purchased the Textra app to get rid of that annoyance.
