    I used Yaata for a few months but as a warning I did have issues with sending MMS. It would act like it sent but never actually did. Also had multiple texts that never came in so I had to move on. I really liked the app and the options.

    The developer has been very responsive to bug reports. The past few releases have been solid, even on my antique rom.

    Might want to give it another shot unless you've found an app that does everything you want

    I'm hooked on Textra now. Been 100% problem free. Unfortunately for me it's imperative I get all messages right away.

    I use Google messanger or at least I think it's from Google it has a blue icon and same spelling as Facebook messanger but different icon. But why does Google have a messanger and hangouts which can act as a messanger. The app freezes the keyboard when I click a noticatification siftimes and have to close open the keyboard in another message to get it work again but so far it is the most stable on my turbo but my favorite app for the features is chomp but I haven't used since it caused problems with resending messages in combo with battery issue see my separate thread. So far the Google messanger has been working but mostly bland on features

    Because hangouts didn't have SMS for years and they built Messenger to handle it.

    I think it is pretty much the same. I switched back to hangouts because it seemed silly to have two apps that were so alike. I use hangouts to talk to my peeps more than I text. I am just really ready for Google to update and get the bugs out *sigh*

    Go into application manager, find your original stock app and click the disable button. Hides it from your launcher and keeps it from loading usually.
