    I searched the forum and found a topic from last year. I wanted to see if anyone has a different opinion since the apps have updated since then.

    So how about it, Hancent or SMS Popup?

    Before I'd swear by handcent, but after realizing u don't really us a lot of the features on it, I dumped it for a modified stock messenger app (root only).

    I was thinking about it, and I think the only feature in handcent I would use is the ability to change the notifications per person. I have a few people who send me a lot of text message forwards (5+ per day) that don't need my immediate attention... I thought it would be nice to silence those specific people. I don't think SMS Popup offers that feature.

    Being able to customize notifications per user is definitely the best feature! I don't know why this isn't standard on the stock app???

    I love how my ESPN Alert texts make the SportsCenter sound!

    I have always used handcent and the only other app I have tried is chomp. I don't use the popup feature with handcent.

    Its been a few months since I used Handcent, I loved it but it was so slow. I mean I just felt it was really laggy compared to SMS Popup. So I moved to SMS Popup and haven't looked back.

    I have tried them all and Handcent is by far the best choice for this.

    I can't seem to find that feature. Point me in the right direction?

    Handcent was the first app I downloaded when I powered my Droid on. I've tried a few other sms replacements, but I've always returned to Handcent, and recommend it to anyone that gets a new Droid!

    Why not try them both out? You can't beat first hand experience no matter how many suggestions you read.
