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.

        Please add filter options like read and unread messages.

      • Eddy commented  · 

        This should be on top

      • Ron commented  · 

        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

      • Dave commented  · 

        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.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        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!

      • Thomas Cybula commented  · 

        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!

      • Mister some commented  · 

        Yes, this is what I still waiting for! Either mark as "Unread" or "pin it" and or place it into the category of text messages, like Buisness/Family/Personal/School/reply later reminder for the message. Or even something like inbox for Gmail uses! Like ZNOOZE the email til certain time date or location!!! That will be one of the greatest Breakthrought features in texting app, and definitely the best texting app out there!

      • Carlos Resurreccion commented  · 

        YES PLEASE WE NEED THAT FEATURE. You don't always have the opportunity to read a text and act on it instantly (especially if it's an errand you need to do.)

      • YoMan commented  · 

        YES! Like have an option to keep badge notifications if you swipe from the notification panel.

      • Ley commented  · 

        Yeah, why not.
