Phone LG G Watch/ android wear Apps and updates

I use Hangouts for messaging, are there any other sms apps ppl like using that we could use our original phone number on the G watch that we can reply with?

I don't really like hangouts and how they don't show anything but Google contact photos. Just curious of to what everyone's setup is like. I'm really liking the G watch and the convenience of it, no question android wear has a long way to go.

Which apps do you find convenient and worth the download besides watch faces?

I like it alot better. I don't use hangouts except for ingress related talk. Evolve sms is always being improved. I try to use other sms apps sometimes just to try something different but always go back to evolve

Yeah i used it today at work. I'm definitely keeping it and using it over hangouts.. Its beautiful on my phone too.. Only thing I hope they add is being able to see the conversation on the watch.. There sas a couple times someone texted me back and I forgot what I said so u had to dig for my phone lol.. No biggie, but would be nice!

Just go look at the evolve g+ community it's nothing but bug complaints lol. MMS barely works, it's buggy as hell and the devs focus on aesthetics rather than a fully functioning app, it's crap IMO. 8sms keeps it simple and works 100% of the time.
