the idea is very good, but in my opinion it needs a better design. I dont know if you plan to change the design of the app, but you should think about that, maybe switch bubbles style and some of the icons and add some material design or something. Its one of the main things that users look when choosing a sms app because there are already a lot of sms apps to choose from with lots of features.

hope you dont take my opinion the wrong way.For such a new release, the app is very good!

Τhe main advantage of the app should be the speed.So design is in low priority for my opinion.Yes the design of an application is very important and many users love material!
OP keep up the good work and we are here to make your application even better! :beer:

Looks promising

But I can't see it at Google Play (Honor 3C)... One more thought: It could be hard to explain to a mass of users why they should download this app...

Nice app! I just have a couple of suggestions: can you make an option so that an incoming text starts the app, but with the closed "chathead" instead of the entire pop up? It can be pretty distracting to have the entire pop up show up all the time, but the chathead would be great (like FB Messenger).

Also, can you make the size and transparency of the chathead customizable? Currently it's a bit too big and opaque to have around for a longer period of time, which is what I'm looking for. Thanks so much!!

Great app. I like how it shows seconds as well for the sent and received times.
Would it be possible to add an option to display the times received messages were sent? This is a common option in many full SMS applications.
Lots of potential here. Subscribed to the thread and looking forward to future updates.

This is the only SMS app I've used that shows the times in seconds. Really great feature, especially if you can implement the sent times for received messages.

That would be great – being able to get a closed chat head pop up that we can click to respond to the message rather than the full pop up would make this app so much more usable for me! Thank you!

Also, I can't seem to select a contact from the list without entering in their full number without any parentheses () or dashes -. Is that ability only available in the pro version?

Thanks for the continued development!

+1 on the closed popup! and maybe show contact pic when available on the closed icon popup?if it does not give too much work

Looking good!

    Thank you :)

    Thanks for the update! Any chance that you're making progress on incoming SMSs showing up as a small, closed chathead on the side of the screen rather than as a full pop-up? That's the only thing that's keeping me from being able to use this app in its entirety. Thanks so much!!
    Thanks your comment :)
    I will make for app to perfect :)

    Updated new version 1.5 :)

    The pro version has been great so far, and the closed chat head appearing with incoming SMSs is nicely implemented. A couple things to suggest/report:

    1. Can you add in an option to disable the notification access request? I'm fine with not having the notifications be dismissed, so I want to get rid of the notification access request every time the app/chat head opens. That would be really, really great.

    2. Whenever I get a text and the chat head appears, it "breathes" (fades in and out) until I finally respond from the chat head popup. I think it should breathe only until the chat head is opened to show the SMS because sometimes you don't want to reply right away, and so the chat head just keeps fading in and out nonstop, which is a bit distracting.

    Thanks!!
    Thank you very much with your suggest/report :)
    I will fix it in next release version :)
