  1. Vibration notification patterns

    Hello,

    I really like your product, it's a full featured SMS and MMS client that works great for almost everything I do. That being said I have one suggestion: increase the amount of notification vibrations. I find the long ones to obtrusive and if I set it to the shorter ones I often miss them. I'm sure there is a middle ground or perhaps you could create a feature to allow users to make their own vibration patterns?

    Keep up the good work!

    Cheers, Colin

  2. More lines while writing sms

    It's a pitty, there are only 3 lines when you write a sms. Could you please enlarge the text box...?

  3. Option to use native emoji

    Some phones have native emoji support (i.e. Sense 5.5 and android 4.4). These look much better than the iOS styled ones and I'd much prefer those.

  4. Airdroid and other send-from-computer apps

    Messages sent with these applications on a computer don't show up in the conversation in Textra. Please fix this...

  5. Support landscape mode for popup

    The popup window always shows in portrait mode. It's inconvenient when the phone is docked, for example. A landscape popup would be awesome.

  6. Close keyboard right after message is sent

    When message is sent the keyboard should be closed like in many other messaging apps.

  7. Easier identification of messages in group texts

    Currently when messages are received through MMS they are denoted by the name at the top of the message. It would be nice if colors could be applied to different contacts or the use of contact pictures when a message is received.

    This could be a setting at a Contact level or a global setting to use the Contact's picture instead of their name.

  10. Option to send long SMS messages as MMS message

    Along side the option to split SMS messages, I would like to have the option to send a text MMS message if the characters exceed 160. This would come in handy for messages with alot of emoticons and other random things.

    This has been completed in v3.22 of Textra. It’s a global setting (for all contacts) as well as customizable on a per contact basis (for example you only need it for sending to friends on Verizon network if you are on t-mobile). Out this week.

  11. Ability to change sizes of font & profile pics. Different bubble styles.


    1. Option in settings to change font size in both message list and message detail.

    2. Option in settings to change size of contact profile picture.

    3. Option in settings to apply different message bubble styles.

  13. Full support for MightyText

    Can you please find a way to fully support MightyText and other apps that send messages through the phone? I realize this is due to your app using its own database for texts but can you please find a way for it to fully sync with the stock database as currently it only syncs from the Textra database to the stock one, not the other way around.

  14. Keep message unread via pop-up interface

    When showing a message with the popup window, it would be great to be able to dismiss the window and keep the message unread.

  15. Small graphical "Send" button

    Can you change "Send" button as a graphical button like New Message, Settings or "+" button. "Send" word is occupying too much space (specialy some languages).

  16. Dark Theme Colors

    Hello,
    First I must say that I love this app and it fixed all of my texting woes on Android. Every friend of mine has an iPhone, and this gets rid of the slideshow picture display, group texts work great, built in emojis, and the contact cards they send actually work for the first time. 10/5 stars on the app.

    One thing is that while I appreciate the option for a dark theme since I have an AMOLED (dark only saves battery on OLED screens since the pixels themselves can turn off for blacks), the current dark theme is kind…
