What’s the best SMS app for a Samsung Galaxy 7.7 tablet?

Christine St Syr Griffin October 19, 2012

What’s the best app for texting on the Samsung Galaxy 7.7? I’ve tried Desk SMS but found it to be too invasive because my tests went to the social hub. I just want something simple that can send and receive texts, save them and provide a delivery report. Also, I want to be able to use with people that use other texting services. Thanks!

    Have you tried Google Voice yet? You need to sign up for an account, but it's awesome, although it has the singular limitation of not allowing MMS. Otherwise it's easily the best SMS client I've ever used or heard about.

    I think the two best features about GV is that it allows cloud backing up of all SMS and it serves as the nerve center for all your SMS needs, meaning it can forward your calls and messages from a variety of devices to a single location, on your phone.

    Here's the app store link:
