Just 2 requests for this awesome app pleaseee!!

1. Android Wear support.
2. Please add support for MMS over JUST WiFi (no data needed), Sprint and T-Mobile support this and the Dev of 8sms has it implemented perfectly!

I can test both for you also if you'd like :good:

Just wanted to say, love the app. Finally a messaging app that is simple, clean and quick. I really prefer the default messenger but hated the contact pictures that Android forces. Glad to see them taken out.

Keep up the good work.

Can you add the blue theme that was in the playstore app ? and the possibility to disable android stock green emoticone, they're so much anoying and i think that most of people prefer ascii smiley and emoji (that already included :) )

Great app! Looks and works excellent. If I may make 1 suggestion, can the action bar (create new message, settings) be moved to the bottom of the app screen? Its easier to reach with my thumb when I'm on the go. I've seen other MMS apps using it that way so I hope its possible. Thanks.

Please include more options for MMS like auto save images and auto-enable data from mobile networks. I can't use this app since I can't automatically receive MMS. I think the only app that have such options is textra, and thats what I use.

I will be adding several more themes. The green emoticons are already gone!





Please add an option to have NO SLIDING at all. And please add translucent statusbar color and round text bubbles?

Yes I'll be doing a lot of work on theming again soon. There were some other things I had to take care of and I figured the two themes provided would be enough for the time being. I will add a no sliding option as well, I've had numerous requests for it.

I'm not sure what you mean. I could save MMS to sdcard automatically. But the app already auto retrieves MMS.

We'll see.

When someone send me a MMS I got to have my mobile data (3g/4g/LTE ) activated to receive immediately that MMS, or else, only when I enable mobile data I will receive it.

I have tested with a lot of SMS apps and textra was the only one that have that option for MMS: turn mobile data on ( for automatically turn it on, receive MMS, and turn it off).

Ah gotcha. So you leave your mobile data off normally and would have the app turn it on just to download the MMS then back off again. That should be fairly easy to do.

I feel like it would be preferable to be notified of the mms and have the option to download it when you choose. But we'll see what I come up with.

Also, B12 is on the first post. Please read the changelog

Great app but often miss notifications. Both my gf and I are experiencing this issue. Running stock moto x on 4.4.2.

Oops sorry didn't realize this is different from the play store version. Will give this a go! Thanks

Can we install over existing or should we delete first?

You only need to uninstall if you have the play version installed.

Yeah that's an issue with the play store version. Should definitely not be happening here.
