      There are a number of very good apps that focus specifically on backup and restore of messages. We recommend and use SMS Backup & Restore.

      No point us re-inventing the wheel and losing focus on the core aspects of Textra.

    • 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.

      • Timestamp

        I like the sliding timestamp on the right idea but I prefer the old timestamp above each sms more. Please give us the option to change the timestamps on sms conversations.

        • Block SMS not on your contact list.

          blocking SMS from people not on your contact list this helps in preventing annoying spam messages that can come in even at mid night and can't be stop, this to me is annoying.

            • Customized wallpaper background for chat conversations list and chat

              It would be nice to use an image in the background for the conversation view that shows all the contacts that you've chatted with also customize the background for the current chat too; very similar to a feature found in crunchsms, thanks for reading.

              • Random color theme

                Add a theme option, where user doesn't only picks one color theme, but lets Textra randomly do the choice. Textra randomizes colors, different for each contact. It makes messaging more fun and it makes it harder to mistake who you're writing to.

                        • Background pictures

                          I think this app is perfect but I think it would be better if we could be able to chose a picture for the background.

                              • manual download for MMS, and not auto

                                is it possible to add an option, to have the choice between, auto download pictures in MMS, or manual download.
                                for now, pictures are always download when you open the conversation.
                                i receive MMS but i dont want to open the pictures now.
                                i want to open it when i want.
                                is it possible?

                                • Emergency Alert System messages option

                                  I had a tornado warning the other day. My sister's phone received an alert, but mine didn't. I realized that the stock messaging app received the alert, but since I have it disabled so I don't get dupe notifications, I didn't get the alert.

                                  Would be great if Textra could receive these alerts. Perhaps with an option to turn them on or off. My stock messaging app has these options: Presidential alert (permanently enabled), extreme alert, severe alert, amber alert, and emergency alert test message (defaulted to off.)

                                  Love the app, thanks!

                                    • Emoji style setting per contact

                                      Setting the Emoji style on a per contact basis would be useful to see the emojis as your contact sees them if you know what device they have.

                                      I have a Samsung phone with its own set of emojis which some other friends have.
                                      But if a friend has an iPhone, I'd like to send and receive the iOS emojis. And if they have standard Android, I'd like to see it that way - as intended.

                                      The emojis can vary greatly in appearance and don't always come out as intended if you use a different style.

                                      It doesn't seem like…
