    There is a new app out that is pretty great if i may say so. Its called GO Sms. Its still kind of beta but works pretty great. There are a lot of customizable options, a little similar to Handcent but still great. It also has 5 themes. You can see here, im using the new years theme. There is also a pop up window which you can see in the screenshots. If you try it out, leave a comment. Features are constantly being added. also, its FREE

    Let me know if the screenshots are too big. i have a bigger resolution so its fits perfect

    P.s. I am not the dev. I just found this app and wanted to share with the community

    i do have it downloaded, but im sticking with handcent for now. While Go SMS seems lighter and quicker than handcent, im not a fan of the themes... id rather be able to pick my own colors and whatnot, as i can in handcent. But i am keeping an eye on this app! checking out after every update, hope to switch to it soon! Also doing the same with Go Launcher.

    You can pick them. Bubble color, text color, background color. You can change the settings pretty much the same as handcent.

    Its being implemented. That's why I said its still kind of beta. They update a lot though. I think I've gotten 2 updates this week. Usually with bug fixes and new things added.

    Giving this a try, currently at work and these hospital walls are too thick so download is going slow.

    Quick question, is it possible to have "Transparent" as one of the available colors? I'd love to have a transparent background, it took me a long time to find a transparent theme for handcent, and I've grown to loving it. Just wondering

    Why are your screen shots such terrible quality?

    Im having somes issues with this app. I have handcent installed, after installing this and tapping on it, nothing happens for a long time, and then it freezes on the conversation list and is unreponsive. Also, I get a notification on my status bar saying I have 2000+ unread messages? I usually get that same notification when using the stock messaging app after restoring my backed up sms using mybackup pro.

    Any thoughts?

    i know when i restored text messages before i had a big number of unread too. as for the freezing, im not sure. i just installed handcent also to see if anything would happen but it runs fine for me.

    they look awesome on my computer screen, maybe its tapatalk?


    hmm as of now i dont see the option. im sure the dev would implement it though.

    if any of you use xda,

    the dev is on there all the time answering questions and taking requests.

    Perhaps. Did you host on DF or tapatalk? I just posted a screenshot in a thread and hosted it on DF and it looks great, same with my screenshot of your screenshot.

    Love it so far, with one exception. Is there a way to get to a line by line text thread rather than 'bubbles'. Handcent enable bubble mode and normal text mode.

    the dark theme is more of a line by line style. and it just doesnt have to be dark, you can change all the colors to what fits you

    Does this work with miui lock screen and going to sms from the lock screen? Handcent takes too long to load messages. Need something faster.

    sounds good, thanks! Only thing I need now is LED notifications for specific people before I can start using this.
