    Default Text on Android.

    Not happy with the default sms on my Nexus 5, tried Handcent, which isn't bad.

    Wondered if there was any the you could recommend.

    Thanks lads.

    What are some of the things you dont like Cicero? I use the default only because it does txting, i noticed it could be improved in some areas but not really worth the trouble to me.

    Cheers,

    I was using hangouts, until I couldn't figure out how to send a txt to a one of number and removed it. Probably easy but If I have to research how to send a txt to a number once then it's not suitable.

    Anyway under settings, general, default applications, messages, does it have the option to use messages or is hangouts the only option? Both are google apps so you may not have to use hangouts if the standard messages app is also still there.
