Handcent Next SMS
Back in the early days of Android one of the most popular 3rd party text message apps was Handcent. A beautifully designed and highly customizable app you could replace the stock messaging app with.
Well, now it's called Handcent, and it has all the features that made it popular and plenty new ones. Handcent works great on your phone, but it's also compatible with tablets and computers. Giving you an all-in-one solution to send and receive texts on any device.
Handcent features a night mode, themes, pop-up notifications for easy replies while you're doing something else, and cross-device sync. Meaning you have access to all of your messages on a tablet too, not just a phone. Keep in mind that Handcent is a phone app first, and you'll need to pair the tablet to your phone in order to send messages. So, like mySMS, this isn't an all-in-one solution, but it's a great way to sync messages from a phone to a tablet or computer.
Our favorite features are the themes, night mode, and backup options. You're able to backup thousands of messages and transfer them anywhere. Never lose your conversations again.
