There are a lot of messaging apps out there that sometimes makes text or SMS messaging almost obsolete. But for those who still prefer the "old-school" way of communicating with loved ones, using your phone's default app can sometimes seem too boring. Fortunately, you always have an app to make it more exciting. One of the newest ones available for Android devices is SMS+ and it brings a whole lot of features that your smartphone's built-in app will not be able to do.
One of the more useful features that this app has is the ability to schedule SMS and MMS so that the text you wrote at 2AM can actually be sent at a time when the recipient will actually be conscious to read it. And if you have sensitive information on some of your messages, you can protect it with a password or encryption. If you don't want to receive notifications when you're in a meeting or an important event, you can easily mute and snooze them until the time when you have the time to read your messages. If there are people that you do not want to receive messages from, you can add them to your blacklist numbers. You can even block certain keywords and also filter those spam messages.
SMS+ also has more than a thousand emojis that you can use to enhance your conversation, whether you want to be cryptic, cute, or funny. The app also has a lot of customizable options, like themes, fonts, sounds, bubble color, LED light color, conversation background, etc. It also has Android Wear support so you can do almost everything on your smartwatch as well.
There are some experimental features within the app, like dual SIM support and MMS, which may later on become permanent fixtures. You can download SMS+ for free from the Google Play Store.
