Download (incl. advertising screen displayed once per 3 days):

Paid plugin (removes advertising screen displayed once per 3 days):

Hints / Limitations:
* HTC Desire with stock ROM - how to fix LED blinking (let us know if it works for other phones with similar problem)
- On stock ROM, LED blinking will stop in about 5 mins after text message arrives. To workaround that we have added refresh during reminders. Simply, set reminders to a period of 5 mins to keep the led on. Btw, you can have reminders 'on' without need to set further Sound, Vibration, Turn on Display.
* LED colors / LED blink rate
- Your phone / rom needs to support that in a way it's accessible via standard Android API (android.app.Notification), otherwise the options won't work for you.
- We know that other programs may use some sort of workarounds and other tricks, but currently we don't have any plans to implement that.
* On-screen message visible when the phone is locked (in a sleep mode).
- Currently, not possible. To introduce that, it would mean to play with the Keyguard functionality in Android API which we are not sure we wanna do. Maybe in the future ... on TODO list.
- You could maybe try some other 3rd party apps which implements their own lock screen. Let us know here if you find something which works together with SMS Notifier.

From v1.5:
*NEW* The most wanted functions are here - Quick reply, Delete, Mark as read right from interactive popup
*NEW* If you don't like Ads or the Thank You screen or just wish to support us, please, consider buying SMS Notifier PREMIUM from our website
*NEW* Now requires Android OS 1.6+

From v1.4.2:
*FIX* fixed SE X10 notification issue
*NEW* click on the picture in interactive popup allows to call the sender
*NEW* possibility to change text color for popup
*NEW* time of received message in interactive popup

From v1.4.1:
*FIX* notification sound issues
*FIX* problem with different screen densities
*NEW* added support for Samsung Galaxy Tab

From v1.4:
*NEW* optional interactive on-screen message preview (popup)

From v1.3.1:
* Few minor fixes and new additional notification icons

From v1.3:
*NEW* privacy level now affects also on-screen preview and notification text in pulldown menu
*NEW* option to use different notification sound for reminders
*NEW* option to keep LED turned on (no blinking) - This needs to be supported by your phone HW / SW (ROM) in order to work
*NEW* option to enable/disable sound and vibration notifications during call

From v1.2.1:
* Few minor fixes and new app launcher icon

From v1.2:
*FIX* resolving contacts issue on Android 2.0+
*FIX* force close on background color selector
*NEW* option to display contact photo in on-screen preview
*NEW* changed on-screen preview icon
*NEW* more on-screen preview positions

From v1.1:
*FIX* audio issues (was probably bugged only on Droid and Droid X)
*NEW* option to customize background color (incl. transparency) of on-screen preview
*NEW* customizable position of on-screen preview
*NEW* added default Android notification icon

Features:
* shows number of unread messages in a notification bar
* adjustable level of privacy (no sender name or message text if you select)
* customizable sound, vibration and LED notifications
* possibility to change icon in a notification bar
* on-screen preview of new incoming messages
* notification reminder system
* quiet hours feature
* designed for a low battery consumption
* and more

If you think there is a feature your are missing or a bug which bothers you just let us know.

Thanks,

Nice little app that I would theme immediatelly !
Would be nice to have it in Android style..why using different icons? So it fits better..and missing the smilies :)

For example, I use only froyos default sms app and would like to use kind of a pop up plugin that fits and does not look like a different sms app.
greets

Edit: just did a quick edit...think I will keep this app now, looks like buid in..
I am curios how you gonna continue with this app..looking forward!!!

Hi rori,

Glad you like it.

I think we can add that default icon in the next update - need to double check the licensing first.

We have some plans for usability improvements and also some more eye-candy for the future releases.

Looking forward to more theming screenshots

Have a nice weekend.

And why not adding a text box that it allows us to make a reply ? Just like ChompSMS or Handcent or SMSPopup!

@aladin6:

There are two ways how to process an incoming message:

1) Let user just read a message (even if notification bar is not visible) with no interruption of whatever doing (watching a movie, playing a game,...).
This is implemented in SMS Notifier. We have missed this feature a lot in other sms applications and this is also one of the reasons why we have developed our own.

2) Interrupt running activity and force user to do some action ("popup").
This is considered for implementantion in the future, but it is not top priority at this moment.

Thanx!
I keep it on my phone...seriously hope you can make it froyo look.
Dont waste your time on your own UI....you just make a great app that fits to default and we have a feeling it is not a third party app, thatīs all.
Dekuji moc, pozdrav!
