Pulse SMS applies end-to-end encryption as long as the person you’re texting is also using Pulse, and for extra security you can password-protect certain conversations. Chats can be pinned to the top of the interface or organized into folders, and there’s also a powerful search feature – if you can’t remember exactly who said what and when, Pulse should be able to help.
With support for scheduled messages, delayed sending and auto-replies, you have a lot of flexibility in how you send messages. You can snooze messages later, compose messages faster with templates, and apply themes to your personal chats. Pulse SMS really packs a lot on top of the basic SMS user experience.
Chomp SMS Pulse is more basic than SMS – but for most people, that will be perfectly fine. It focuses on the most important task of such an app, which is sending and receiving SMS messages, wrapping it all in a no-nonsense interface (if you want to add a little more flair, there are a variety of app. themes available).
That’s not to say that Chomp SMS doesn’t have some useful features included. The Quick Reply feature, for example, allows you to reply to texts in a pop-up overlay so you don’t have to leave whatever app you’re currently in. You can lock the app behind a passcode for extra privacy, and you can. Schedule outgoing messages at specific times and dates if necessary.
There’s an integrated text backup option here too, but perhaps the best part of Chomp SMS is how you can customize how you receive messages. Individual contacts can all be assigned their own ringtones and vibration patterns, so you always know who’s in contact without actually looking at your phone screen.
SMS organizer Microsoft’s “garage project,” meaning it’s a side hobby for its developers. Although it may not have the profile of the more official Microsoft apps, SMS Organizer is still regularly updated with new features and has plenty to offer if you need somewhere for your SMS conversations on your Android phone.
For example, you can get reminders generated automatically from your SMS messages — about flights, bills, movies, or details stored in text. You can back up texts, compose texts using your voice, and quickly filter your conversation list to see unread messages that need to be dealt with first.
We also love the variety of customization options available here, from the dark theme option to the way you can play with ringtones, notifications, and font size. It’s easy to star messages so you can return them quickly and block spammers within the app. It’s all wrapped up in a clean interface that manages to make even basic text look interesting.
