I use MightyText (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...htytext.tablet). Works really well, and it's free. There are two separate apps in the play store, one you download and install on your phone, and the other on your tablet. You can also text from your computer as well using this app.

I've been using Google Voice since my first gen Nexus 7. It works very well. You'll have to setup a google voice number in your google account. On my N5 I use both google voice and 8sms because I have a very small text plan with unlimited data. It's also nice to be able to swap back and forth in the same conversation using either my phone or tablet. At times I actually do quite a bit of texting on my N7. The only real drawback in my opinion is no mms with google voice.

I found and use Verizon Messages as well, it works great and does what I need (sends MMS as well as SMS). Will check out Mightytext though and see how the two compare.

I second Mighty Text. It does FC once in a while on my Nexus 7 when it the background, but it seems to have no effect on functionality.
