I used HC for sometime... about a year or so but became a little bit bloated for the 'additional features'. the article does raise some privacy concerns: if the text was deleted, why would HC keep an UNENCRYPTED DB for it? I am not really sure if the stock sms app does the same thing (as in keep an unencrypted DB for the text messages, I would not be surprised if it did) but the point remains: once the text is deleted it should be gone... forever, not stored in some internal DB where the app itself does not make a reference of it (as in being 'useful' to the owner to retrieve accidentally deleted messages).

Same, but that article does raise some issues.
