App Lock 


At least once we all were SMS spied by someone which led to very awkward situations. To protect yourself from such situations just install AppLock, a pretty simple free app. It will protect you from anybody who will try to enter your messages or any other application on your smartphone, you just need to select which apps you will protect. If you only need simple and fast SMS locker, then try SMS Lock.

Mighty Text SMS



We did review of this app before, it basically enables you to send SMS from your computer or tablet using your phone number. Very useful if your phone is far from you when you are on the computer, or you need to write fast and long SMS. You also will have clear and simple view of all messages and calls from your phone.

EDIT: With a Mighty Text Chrome extension you can now easily send SMS from gmail

Textra

Textra is one of the many replacements of the Android stock messaging app. But, Textra will give you one additional feature that others won't. When someone send you multiple images via MMS, it will let you scroll through them and not open each one by one, like you have to do in your stock messaging app. Textra is really a neat SMS app, with tons of emoticons and features.

Handcent SMS

If you don’t like the original messaging app from your Android phone, then here is another great customizable messaging app. Handcent SMS is one of the most popular and widely used apps from this category. It offers tons of useful features for customization like selecting themes, background color, background color of the SMS bubbles, font color, locking private messages, taking screenshots, scheduled sending of messages etc.

GO SMS Pro 

GO SMS Pro is another awesome messaging widget which will replace your initial messaging widget. It offers tons of features for customization. They are very similar with Handcent SMS and basically it has the same features. However, It has a better looking design, offers various themes and has a lot of unique stickers.

Free SMS apps  

I’m currently using 24 SMS for sending free SMS, as it supports sending SMS in 145 countries. You may also try the other two very popular, and more quality, apps for sending free SMS like Text Me and HeyWire. Text Me and HeyWire offer the service to around 40 countries though, but they are much more reliable than 24 SMS. This kind of apps are very useful for people who don’t have many free messages in their plans, for sending messages to people from another country or for sending messages to people who don’t have Android smartphones.

Viber 

Although Viber is mainly used for phone calls, it offers free sending of messages as well. You can attach photos or location to the message and also there are the standard emoticons. You can also check Kakao and LINEvery popular apps similar to Viber.

WhatsApp

For me, and for many of my friends, WhatsApp is God of sending messages. The best app for free texting definitely. Awesome UI, simple, neat, responsive, extremely fast and reliable. You can also use it for sending photos, videos, audio, locations and contacts. From recently WhatsApp supports voice messages.

Fun Fact: On 12th of June Whatsapp handled 27 billion messages in just 24 hours. 10 billion were sent, and 17 billion were received.

For the WhatsApp junkies: If you want to follow and have nice view of your Whatsapp stats then download WhatStat. It will give you interesting statistics about your WhatsApp activity.
