I've been using Yaata since the Alpha days.... Never had this issue? I did have a Samsung Galaxy S6 that would send out duplicate text to a few people, only on Verizon though? Never more than two though, and it was few and far between and only on The Samsung. I've used it on 5 other phones with no duplicate messages sent: HTC One M7, M8, M9, Moto X Pure, and now a Nexus 6P.

Was able to repeat it on the Mot Droid Turbo2, and send log and info, he is working on it (I hope for something soon)

Maybe that request was already posted, but will have a try:)

Small thing, but is it possible to get "flat" status bar style to choose? Like in AwSms app? Whitout that blackish shadow? Thats the only thing that I miss comparing to the Awsms.
Beside that app is perfect! Maybe little bit less responsive than Textra or others, but it doesnt mean lags or sth. Just bit slower:) Im using it from a long time thou.

Related to my issue with "multiple text messages" being sent to the same user... I have had this happen many times and as many as 104 repeated messages to the same person.
I was forced to use Message+ (the default text app on my Verizon phone), and just noticed that the "Integrated Messaging" [www.vzw.com/vzmessages ] option was turned on... which I did not turn on
Could this be causing me any pains? Anyone use this at all? It seems similar to MySMS or MightyText, and I wonder if the syncing part does this and/or what else it could be doing to my texting and/or phone.

Try to freeze in titanium backup this VZw sms app.

In these settings (in app, in conversation, when screen on...) popup also means chathead.
In current official release due to android limitations, app can't post notification without status bar icon, but today I found workaround. It is included in today's BETA.

Oh. So the setting is there, but doesn't do anything?
How do I get the BETA? Tried going to this link, but it's telling me invite only...

Hi all,
First, thanks for the hard work and, of course followed by little questions ;)

Maybe i missed it but is there an option for having sound notification on delivery reporting/acknowledgement of receipt by receiver and same for read/unread message ? (assuming services have to be available on carrier, of course...)
If not, is there plan to implement something like that ?

Also, plan to have a widget with messages counter on it (Handcent style...)?

Assuming those are specific options, but asked by a friend i'm trying to convert using this wonderful app Yaata is...In fact, needed by him because always using headset for keeping his hands free for working...

Thanks in advance for replies ;)

As i've not seen any answer, reposting my little questions ;)
(Am i doing something wrong with those questions ???)

    Later I'll write some more words:), now I'm going sleep, I'm exhausted.
    As you have already noticed, my activity in this forum has declined. There's a reason. For over two years (almost three if we count ALPHA / BETA stage) I developed actively YAATA SMS. Due to the fact that the development of the application was not profitable enough that it could have been my main source of income, in addition to developing applications I also had a regular job. In general, so for over two years I worked two jobs (my regular work and YAATA). In the long run, it is neither healthy nor comfortable nor acceptable by my family. For this reason, I had to take a break from YAATA.
    Developing YAATA is harder work than I thought. All this time I had to deal with things that should normally take two or three people (developing, user support, marketing), I was also the developer and Product Owner. To put it briefly and bluntly at a certain point I felt exhausted, so I had to rest.

    - Bug fixes.
    - Improved: Message deteting.
    - Improved: Message details dialog window.
    I've improved mms engine, so I'm think in BETA 7 mms on Verizon will be working. I'm still working on T-Mobile mms sending issues.
    Thank you for donations and your support. In the first half of january I'll buy Nexsus 5, so I'll be up to date (now I'm still on 4.2 Xperia S) and I'll be working on "materializing" YAATA UI.
    Coming donations I'm planning to spend on books (Design Patterns, Clean Code etc), android wear (to implement android wear support) and English lessons:).

    In december app development slowed a bit (hot period in my industry, 210 working hours), but in January I will be able to devote more time to the app development.

    In the new year, I'm planning to change job for IT (this application has to help me:), and change location to place where the sun shines more than three months of the year), and if I succeed, YAATA and my future apps will be free of charge:).
