Using Google Voice for text messaging. Have noticed that there are several others available and wondering which is better? Whatsapp, Voxer, Viber, etc.

Any thoughts?

Honestly, the best one would probably just be Google Voice (as your probably used too, considering you use it). I've had absolutely no problems with it, and the texting online from your computer feature is also a huge plus! It seems to be the best of all the other ones I've tried.

I've been using textplus but have been really disappointed with it. It works but it's slow and clunky.

Google Voice gives you a number based on your area code as well. I find TextFree only good on iOS, the Android version is quite slow.
