Is there a better text messaging app?

Is there an app out there that is better than the stock messaging in WM 6.1? I just don't care for it.

Depending on your carrier, you may be able to find a build of the Arcsoft MMS program. It integrates MMS with SMS and is basically what SMS/MMS should have been all along.

It works great!

If you're on Sprint, be sure to uninstall the Pic Mail cab if you have that installed. You may also need to find a remove Sprint Pic Mail cab first.

Every time I install Arcsoft, I can no longer dial. Can't access the phone keyboard with the hard or soft keys. Then I uninstall Arcsoft and all is good.

Alltel with Alltel Arcsoft.

Tried Vito SMS for an hour and can't wait to get if off my phone. The Windows SMS is so much better and it's free.

Re: Is there a better text messaging app?

For something that is so simple....I mean really define better!

All it needs to do is let you type and hit send....Recieve MMS and display!

I don't know maybe I'm just a minimalist! LOL

I completely totally disagree, but that's why there are various options available.

I use SMS-Chat with the TouchPal KB.



This setup using T+ (their version of T-9) is WAY WAY faster than using the hardware KB (+ I never have to worry about the hardware KB problems) & it always works perfectly.

When I first installed Rhodium in a previous ROM, it had the "no sim card installed" error when sending a text from TF. I never even realized my system had the problem however as SMS-Chat still worked perfectly.

I use AEButton + to set up SMS-Chat to open with a double click of the round center button. That way, I can instantly open SMS-Chat ready to text from ANY screen no matter what I'm doing. This is the very first thing I do after any ROM flash.
