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.

        Agreed, this is an amazing idea. I've been thinking about this one for a while now. So many times I read a text and then don't have time to respond to it so I'd like to see it as marked unread for when I view it later. What would also be nice is to be able to set a reminder for when you'd like to view the message again. Set it for 4:00pm today for example to have your phone buzz or ring like you're getting a new message, but actually just have the same message you had marked come up.

        There should be an option on top bar i.e next to delete to filter read and unread messages, this should be very first add on.

        This should have been one of the very first add on idea!!!!

        I needed this like yesterday, when can we expect it?

      • Umar commented  · 

        Please add filter options like read and unread messages.

      • Eddy commented  · 

        This should be on top

        Also having a toggle option to keep the unread messages at the top of the list... That would be nice!

        defo needs this Handcent has this facility ...surley you can add this in ...its a must

        Seriously, this is a hugely important basic piece of functionality. Gonna start dropping stars on Google Play soon if no one ever gets a response about this.

        When is this coming? Ive been waiting for this for a long time... It would make the best texting app shine. I've been using this app for years now.

        Yes please! I forget to respond to a lot of messages because they become unread

        Also would be useful if you read a message on your wife's phone, but want to leave the message unread so she will also know she needs to read it.

        I really like Textra and have been using it for several years ... I have been waiting for this unread option for quite a while and would anticipate it being available sooner rather than later. Thanks so much for a very great app!

        Awesome idea. Either that or the ability to flag or tag the sms.

        I would like to be able to mark msg's unread, but even more so, I would like to be able to mark msg's read with one action (besides opening it).

      • Carlos Resurreccion commented  · 

        Also, clearing notifs shouldn't mark them as read in our inbox (or give us a toggle option for this)

      • Ron commented  · 

        Just can't wait until this is an option!
