Textra - An Amazing App Gets Better With Updates

I did an App review on Textra not long ago, if you missed that article, you can Find It Here.
An already amazing, but simple app has not gotten even better with new updates and fixes.

When I reviewed the Textra app, there was a small but annoying problem I was experiencing with it. That problem was MMS Picture messages where coming out very small, and no option to zoom in or expand to the size of my screen.

I contacted the developer about the issues and they promptly responded with questions about the issue to get a better understanding on it. To keep this story short, within a weeks time, they just released an update fixing my issue as well as a few others.
So the only issue I could find with Textra has already been fixed, Fantastic!


  • MMS Pictures are now shown correctly sized in the Textra preview mode.
  • MMS content can now be Saved / Shared / Edited (in Gallery app) in the Textra preview mode.
  • If an incoming message is actioned then the Notification Sound will stop playing.
  • Added a pink notification icon!
  • Quick Reply Popup - Power users can now swipe right to dismiss it.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Quick Reply Popup to not send or store the reply.

Needless to say, this greatly impressed me and makes me want to recommend this app even more.
So if you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, I highly recommend it. It's a very simple, very light and fast SMS replacement app. If you're still a little unsure, don't forget about my Textra App Review.
