    Hi all,

    Any suggestions for what SMS app is the best? I've tried Handcent & GO SMS; had problems with both. Desperately in need of one that I can customize without it sending the same text multiple times, or not getting notified.

    Oh and not sure if this has been brought up yet, but does anyone know what's up with the new iphone update/droid compatibility? I don't receive emoji's or pictures from iphones anymore. (Could this have to do with my SMS app?)

    Help is always appreciated! Thanks!

    I've heard Chomp is good... But since I don't text, I couldn't tell you! :p

    Been using hand sent for about 3 months with no problems what so ever, very customizable and never get double texts sent or received, and always get notified. Now I did make sure the stack app was disabled. before that i had some funny things happen but not since.

    Again with handcent I am using emoji's with no problem works with android and iPhones no problem.

    I used Handcent for a long time but recently switched to GO SMS and I like it even better.

    What makes Go SMS better than Handcent?
    Can you do group txt on Go?
    batch delete?

    Thanks!

    I haven't found a single thing GO can't do that Handcent can. It seems to get more regular updates and doesn't seem to be as buggy.

    I've already used handcent but for the last few months it has been stupid slow.. I deleted it and tried chomp but hated the adds and it was lacking a few options the handcent has. I'm back to handcent but it still slow so I might give go sms a try
