Need Advice! Best SMS/MMS app to replace Touchwiz app??

Hey Army,

I need your advice. I have a GS3 and the text messaging app is painful to use sometimes. I have Nova Prime launcher installed, so I don't really see much of Touchwiz, but the texting app is a big flaw for me.

Can you recommend a different app from the Google Play Store that can handle SMS and MMS messaging, and is also safe to use? (I get paranoid about my data going through sketchy servers...)

BLERG!
