These aren’t by any means necessary to download, but each additional download here will help you customize your new messenger to your heart’s content and will enhance the user experience.
GO SMS Additional Apps and Downloads
GO SMS has almost has too many options for guys (which you can download), but here i present the ones that are best in my point of view.
First and foremost is GO Keyboard. This GO keyboard is available in two different versions, old and new one,the new one is launched in the 2017, my recommendation to most users is to go for older ones because the newer version of the app features a different typing recognition system for swipe typing, but some user don’t liked this feature. The old model was also very efficient in many ways as compared to the newer one.
Next up are some themes for GO SMS that you can download from Playstore that too for free :
Black and White Theme: This theme is pretty basic and is just what it sounds like, but sometimes basic is all you need to enjoy your text messenger a little more.
Jungle Jewels Theme: With jungle jewels you get a vibrant and almost candy like theme with no. of colorful animals in a bright jungle setting.
Glass EX(Theme): The glass EX has an unique style that looks like cartoonist, but is simple and pleasing to eye at the same time. This theme is just awesome for people who want a pleasing effect for their eyes.
Clear Water Theme: Last but not least is this water themed background, it’s a simple but colorful one that makes and it also gives a underwater feel.
Textra Additional Apps and Downloads
Textra features a theme and background maker right inside of the app, so if you are using this app then you don’t have download and other app. This requires different plugins in order to change the emojis styles and many more.
There are different styles available almost 5 styles, and you can download all of them.
Mood Messenger Additional Apps and Downloads
While GO SMS Pro has the mod ad dons to download in the Play Store, Mood Messenger most likely has the least. You have the variety in the app to choose from whereas you can even download another app to which will act as a marketplace of the themes.
Evolve SMS Additional Apps and Downloads
Evolve SMS has plenty of themes right on the Play Store and i am listing here some of my favorites:
Posties Theme: This theme changes your texts into little notes and makes your background look like a board to on which lots of short messages are sticked on. This theme costs you $0.99.
Rainy Wrap Theme: The rainy wrap theme is minimalist in nature, you guessed it, this will give a watery and rainy feel. It’s almost relaxing to just look at, and you can buy this for $0.99.
Hangouts Theme: Last one if the hangout theme which we can say is a little bit copied form the google hangout app but it is with a new feel.
All of these themes only work when you have Evolve SMS installed on your device. This app and all the themes are available on the Play Store.
So these were a few of best apps that I know for providing us with a wonderful experience of texting with no extra efforts and costs. In fact they provide us with extra themes and features to make ours a memorable experience.
So choose among them carefully and enjoy texting and chatting with you loved ones.
