    " Seriously the best texting app ever. It’s customizable in anyway you can imagine, you can even place the ads wherever you want. It also won’t split up long texts into multiple entries. That is a big plus for me. "

    "Very simple and easy to use. It is free and has no monthly limit. It also syncs well between computer and phone, so one can see the history of what they have sent. One other cool feature is that it will notify a person on their computer so that if their phone is isn't with them they know they are getting a call or text. Great App!!!"

    "better than textra IMO though wish they had minor cosmetic details. for example screen animations, emoji animation support (like mood and messenger) and the read/receive checks to be smaller. overall pretty by good."
