Best Free SMS App for Android



Text messaging or Short Message Service (SMS) is a basic feature needed by all mobile phone users. So long as you have a mobile phone number of your counter part, you can then send text or an SMS to him or her. This is known to everyone and it works differently from instant messaging apps, like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, which regularly needs users to run the same apps for communications.

Android mobiles come in with a default Messages app, but you prefer a third party SMS app that offers you a different user interface and more features, then check out these recommended texting or SMS apps.
