Welcome to the XDA community open-source project:
The building of a lightweight, smooth and sweeeet style
SMS & MMS application!

New thread for mb286's S2S app can be found by clicking HERE

This release features:
- Folder View (Swipe from right to left in inbox view
- New SMS (Swipe from left to right in inbox view)
- Slide2Send (in new message view)
- Slide2Reply (in detail message view)
- Some default (color) skinning in the settings.xml
- It should display in both QVGA,WQVGA and VGA,WQVGA.

Google Code repository here

Also, check out TeDeV's graphics only alpha version of Slide2Send (v0.02). See his post here! Direct download here and here. [/center]

The application development has the following high priorities:
- sending/receiving SMS (of course)
- finger-friendly, sweeeet and attractive UI
- multi-resolution
- being lightweight and fast
- Slide2-buttons (e.g. Slide2Send, Slide2Reply, Slide2NewMsg etc) - check out the mockups

Second priority (other features that hopefully will be possible later on):
- complete WM Messaging replacement
- easily skinable
- easily translatable
- threaded messaging & normal mode, including easy switching
- multiple receivers
- easy to add recipients (like poutlook: Type-and-search)
- preferably small (max. 1-2 mb)
- preferably instant call when pressing a contact picture in message view
- email support and integration
- MMS support and integration
- MMS preview in conversation view
- option to choose between Slide2 slide bar and regular Send button

Remember that the second priority features are not first priority. This means that you can't expect this to be available just yet. But it be available later, so stay tuned to get all the updates!

The bounty will be shared between the most active developers. I don't take any responsibility for others to pay, but I trust everyone to be honest and pay!

Hmm a lightweight SMS program would be exceptional.. except the windows Messaging app seems to be as light as it will get.. It doesnt use any unnecessary graphics and its fairly smooth in WM6.5.

Anyways a +1 from me if its smooth, looks alright and is easy to use

Yeah, as much as I'd like to see something like this I'm beginning to think its a bit of a pipe dream too.

A great idea except it would be far too difficult to do.. when creating a new 'light' app is so much more feasable.

I have decent Visual Studio Skills. I could MAYBE try to make something like this. I think the current one is very lite as it is though...What do you want so different?

I actually searched for this too when I first got my Fuze and started flashing. The default WinMo Sms and it's functions isn't actually bad,but it would be AWESOME to be able to skin it!!!

Wink Why M$ isn't good enough!
Wow, great response on this thread already, it seems that there is a need for an app - or a skinning tool - like this! Please, people, give your opinion about this!

@TheParadox: WMs SMS app is okay, but I have never seen any app as ugly as this one And, it's all so small - adding new recipients, selecting text in the message, pushing buttons etc. If you have the skills for this, I'd LOVE it if you gave it a try! I know nothing about building apps and creating skins from scratch!

@hyperfire21 and Aegishua: There is, actually, one way to "skin" the default WM SMS app. It's called SMS Tweaker (see this post), but it's functionality is VERY limited. It lets you do only two things: Turn off threaded mode and change background on the message window. Last one is a nice feature, but it doesn't make the app much prettier!!
