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.

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 :D

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:

Anyone try this on TouchWiz yet, is it working?

It works on Samsung software. Infact, most users are using it on the s3 and s4. Please try and let me know if you have issues by posting here or emailing me directly to [email protected]

I have made it so that only the first 160 characters of the text message is shown (There is a 160 character sending limit on most sms applications) but I will work on it to display the entire text.

I am currently working on enabling to be flinged up and down the screen (kinda like Facebook Chat bubbles)! I will take a look at mms.apk

Thanks!

I couldn't get this to work on Samsung galaxy s4 running jelly beans build 7

@manuja95 Working fine on TouchWiz, thanks for this app. I especially like it because it's not obtrusive. Maybe you can add adjustable window sizer so users can adjust it to their liking.:good:
