    I was curious what others are using for sms. I just recently switched to windows mobile. I like the idea of sending texts from my pc but that is limited to the skype app. Is anyone using the skype preview app for sms and do you like it?

    I tried it. It worked between devices but I prefer a working Live tile. Went back to messaging app.

    I prefer the messages app, if they could have used a better interface, I would have used skype

    I tried using Skype Preview on my mobile device because I like the thought of unified messaging across SMS and Skype, but not being able to save videos and photos I was sent was a limitation I didn't like. I also didn't like not being able to mark all conversations as read. Seems like they recently added the ability to just press and hold on a conversation and mark it as read (which you couldn't do before).

    Thanks for the input. Maybe after a few more updates it will be ready for primetime.

    I like skype preview but it takes too long too open compared to the messaging app.
