(looks like I'll be resurrecting a long idle thread...)
Great job ilovetorresmo!
Just what I needed! - I was looking for a replacement for the SMS app in a (near-)AOSP phone, that would have the "Strip Unicode" feature, and could also directly replace the native SMS app, so the lock screen notification icon can lead straight to it (doesn't work correctly with 3rd party apps, like 8sms...)
I tried the messaging app straight off a CM11 ROM, but it didn't work on my phone (FC'ed immediately); your port works just fine!
My only problem is that the Enter key operates as a substitute for the 'Send' button, causing the message to be sent immediately, and thus rendering Enter inoperable (as a means for inserting a newline).
I used to think that this -if present at all- would be configurable...
Any chance of fixing this...?
(I'm not asking for an extra config option; I think that Enter should be Enter, i.e. newline; there's a separate button for Send anyway...)
Thanks in advance!
