Keeping up with your text messages can be a huge chore. Typically I’m doing texts before I go to bed around 2AM, and by 8 or 9AM I’m back at it.
This can seem like a perpetual burden, unless of course you’ve got the right app to help you through it. That’s exactly where Inbox Messenger comes in.
Inbox Messenger, from inbox, is a beautiful modern messaging app that is about the best we’ve seen. It gets the job done and does it with an impossibly clean and simple layout. It illustrates exactly what we love about Apple in the first place; beautifully elegant text and white aesthetics.
Somewhere between your native messaging client and Snapchat, Inbox Messenger has come into the mix and is aiming for that top spot.
Three primary features strike me as the predominant advantages of Inbox Messenger. First, you can un-send messages. If you’ve ever typed out a reply a little too quickly or “LOL”-ed your editor instead of your best friend, you know exactly what we’re talking about, this can be a huge asset. Not that this has ever happened to anyone we know.
This feature is something we’ve been waiting for via SMS and iMessage, but now we have it with Inbox Messenger.
The second feature is privacy, allowing you to “cloak” messages to ensure they’re only read by the intended recipient. Whether your texting something a bit risque to a significant other or some proprietary information for your company, this can be a huge feature for those worried about phishing and hacking.
Finally, the layout is simply gorgeous. We love the amount of space and generally clean interface. Some apps try way too hard to dazzle and wind up clogging the screen. This little app does exactly the opposite and is better off for it.
Concept and Functionality:
We love to see active developers coming up with updates to keep their apps thriving and increasing fluidity. This dev team does just that, boasting an update as recently as December 2nd and keeping their baby running like a dream.
From a quick download to a simple login, the functionality here is simply as smooth as the concept in the first place.
Flawless. We can’t wait to see updates of this app, simply to see how it could possibly be improved upon further.
From the price tag (free) to the features, layout and beyond, this app gets a roaring review from us here at TheiPhoneAppReview. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to catch up on some texts.
Inbox Messenger requires iOS 7.1 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
