Default [APP] ICS SMS Beta [4.0+][UPD July 7]

ICS SMS is a replacement for the stock Messaging app, for those that want the vanilla Holo theme, with or without stock ICS. Currently only supports SMS (Sorry no MMS yet guys!) and aims to provide a minimalistic SMS app, that fits in with the rest of the Ice-Cream Sandwich look and feel.

This app is still in beta, and being actively developed on (unfortunately its not my day job though) so bear this in mind with any feedback!

Download it now from the play store!


https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ctions.ics.sms

Any bug reports you have PLEASE attach a logcat of whats going on - it makes the whole process a lot easier!

Any feature requests stick them in a reply here, or get in touch direct, and I'll see about getting it included!

Features
  • usual messaging features - Wouldn't be a messaging app without one!
  • POPUP DIALOG!
  • Customizable notifications
  • 6 Different themes
  • Ability to disable other messaging notifications (NOTE: This doesn't always play well with GoSMS)
  • Notification Privacy Mode - Don't display a received message in notifications
  • 'In reply to...' - See what the last message you sent to a person was - straight from the dialog
  • Call direct from SMS view
  • SMS Forwarding

Willing to do some more involved testing? Send me a PM, and I'll add you to the list of testers that get development versions of the app before it gets put into the market.

Outside of a few bugs I am pleasantly suprised by this. Obviously Mms support is a huge must, all these new beta messaging apps coming out also miss Mms support so if you want to beat the rush you better work on that quick. Other than that, using the ics framework background that you do, isnt so nice with the new theme engines as whatever background your using gets some interesting themeing images sometimes.

As a praise im loving the pop up, its almost exactly what im looking for the only thing I would like more is if it it was stretched out to full edge of screen but less width and lifted to the top, like miuis pop up. All the pop up add ons are in the middle nowadays except miui's and miui's does it right.

I also LOVE your in reply too button, being able to see the last thing I said real quick is freaking awesome!

Love the idea of being able to do a quick reply for the pop up instead of pressing reply in order to reply. But it could be better if it could sync the contact pictures (facebook) or maybe have a widget for the app.

Mms is definitely the most requested feature, so that's the next thing that's going to appear in the app. Only problem is that I can't test it myself with my phone plan, so I will have to rely on others for testing. Mms viewing will be the first release, and sending will be second.

Thanks for all the feedback so far! Glad to see its appreciated.

Good, But missing mms and Facebook contact photo sync. Theme and extra features are new otherwise identical feature wise to tim hutts version on market, of which I like the light theme better myself. Also lacks feature of clicking on contact picture in thread to bring up their contact info. I don't care for it but I did notice. Reading white on a black background hurts my eyes. In the theme could you maybe give a light or dark option? At least in thread view, in thread select dark is fine. Maybe consider doing that nice striped background from the aosp dialer or holomusic on background of thread select?

I love devs that keep up on their work and I hope you are working diligently to get mms at least working.

Thanks!

Great beta! Agree with mms, but also, EMOJI SUPPORT would make it even better. The ability to switch return key with the android as well as emoji would be better
