  1. Privacy Locking Option.

    Add some lock options like pattern lock, number lock etc. It'll be great if i can lock messages from a specific user :)

    • Archive Messages

      Rather than just permanently delete messages, it would be fantastic if you could archive messages. This was one of the features in Google Hangouts that I used the most and found incredibly helpful.

      Sometimes you want to clean up your inbox so you don't have hundreds of conversations floating around in it that you have to scroll through, but you don't necessarily want to lose some conversations forever by deleting them. The ability to Archive conversations in order to move them out of the main inbox view and into a separate archive view for later reference or search would be…

      • Mark as Unread

        It would be awesome if when you long-press on a message, you can mark it as unread.

        In my case this is useful because that way It reminds me that this specific message is important.

        • LED options please. Blink-rate/timing, custom colors

          Similar to competitor apps (8sms, Hangouts) I'd love the ability to change the blink-rate. Currently it is way too fast and annoys me. I prefer the slow blink of Hangouts and 8sms.

          Please add this option.

          • Open Textra and Quick Reply buttons on notifications.

            Instead of having it in settings to tap to quick reply or tap to open the thread in the app it would be awesome to have an option where you are given two buttons on the notification so you can choose if you want to go to the full app or just quick reply.

              • Wifi texting

                The ability to send/receive texts over a wifi would be a great addition to this application. Sometimes cell signal is just not available.

                • Rich Notification Actions/Buttons

                  Since Android 4.1, Android has enabled rich notifications with actions and these notifications have since then become the standard. While Textra does currently support rich notifications, it needs to add actions to its notifications to stay current. Useful actions for these would be Mark as Read or Snooze, since clicking on the notification itself opens up the conversation to reply. However, a Reply action button which opened up a quick compose window could also be very helpful.

                  I think that as one of the most notification heavy apps anyone will have on their phone, it is essential that a messaging…

                    • Tells you if someone read or is replying to your text

                      This would be handy because I will know if my friend has read the text yet and is too busy to reply currently. It will also be nice to see if my friend is replying so I can wait for him message before I send mine.

                      • Private Box

                        This Sms app should have private box and a password for it to be able to unlock it. I suggest 4-12 numbers for the password because sometimes if the password is for 4numbers only, it is easy for other people to guess my password. I prefer 4 or more.

                            At least on my phone (galaxy s4), I can't use this app to multi task, like texting and watching YouTube videos at the same time. This would be a nice feature

                            • Allow custom background images.

                              instead of just Dark and Black, allow the abilitity to set a custom image to the background. That would be great!

                                      • Backup settings

                                        I've seen this before but, it would be great to have the ability to backup your Textra settings and customization. It's a hassle to have to do that each time.

                                        • Split group sms thread

                                          When you send a group sms message the recipient answers directly to you because he sees it as a standalone message.
                                          So I think it would be convinient to have an option to split outgoing group message into each contacts' threads.
