Looks great!!!

But at times the UI looks a bit off-beat ...

Why don't you go for plain HOLO Style ???
Holo style looks sleek, also it will merge with rest of the Android Framework and this app will look as an integrated part of System!!!

Good Work & Keep Deving !!!

This is really nice dude!

A few recommendations:
  1. Stick to the standard Android UI, that is, Holo.
  2. Mark the SMS as read if the user replies to it.
It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

iPhone 3G -> Nexus One -> Nexus S -> Galaxy Nexus -> AT&T Galaxy S3 / SGH-I747 -> Black 32GB Nexus 5

Sir, i have tested your app and many things to be mentioned here
Firstly the floating window doesnt show complete message and also doesnt not allow us to scroll message down to read more so how can we reply back without reading complete message.......
secondly the window sticks at upper side of the screen only please make it movable to other screen area if its possible.....and also make it more color full

ok now some information for your help......if you have ever checked CM for xperia devices they have created their own messaging app which is installed when we install CM that messaging app is called Mms.apk and this app is the most customisable and full of features messging app created to date in the history of android....in that app their is a option of pop up message (like your's idea) kindly check that you will come to know what i want to say.....you will get alot of things in that...you can even reply without unlocking screen...

BTW nice effort...... :thumbsup:
Current Devices: HTC Desire 816 Grey

If i helped you Please hit Thanks Button.

I like it but what's the Internet permission for? It seems to work fine without it.
