I'm trying to make a simple android texting app, and was wondering whether there are any open source sms apps for android I could use. I searched around and I saw a thread on another site saying GO SMS Pro was opensource, but after searching around I didnt manage to find its source code anywhere. Could someone clear this up for me? I would appreciate it if you told me about (and possibly provide a link to) android opensource SMS apps. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the tutorial link, but that wasn't what I was looking for. I was thinking more of a fully featured SMS app with easily accessible open source code

Look at the Google code for the AOSP messaging app. That is the only Open source app out. Go SMS is far from open source as are any other 3rd party apps.

I know I am a bit late, but SMSdroid is an open source SMS client project.
Check it out here http://code.google.com/p/websmsdroid/ and here https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...droid.smsdroid

Wow, hate to revive an old thread, but I'm in the same boat and would like to hear what the OP did in the end.
Here is what I'm trying to do:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/cod...droid-t3610335

Ultimately, I want an app that could handle basic notifications from my carrier which come 1 or 2x a month, but allow all new outgoing messages to come from another app. Google Voice, in my situation, other people might want Hangouts or whatsapp or other apps to be their default for outgoing from the dialer/contact/call log screens. Problem is, in order for a app to be "default", it needs to actually have the handlers for SMS/MMS built in. I'm not saavy enough to write a while new app from scratch, was hoping to modify one enough to forward new messages using intent.

I'd like to revive this thread and find a current solution. I liked qksms but Development died about a year ago without resolving some bugs
