    I've never used Chomp, but Handcent does everything I need it to do and more.

    I just reinstalled Handcent to give it another try, in the past there were too many errors with it. I used ChompSMS for a few days, but their pop up windown was not as good.

    @ TEkHawk : there's an app called SMS Popup that allows for a popup windown while using the stock messaging application. I will revert back to this if Handcent gives me FC errors again.
    Check it out:
    SMS Popup v1.0.6 Application for Android | Tools

    @jrocketdroid Only thing i see with that is that it does give the popup function but lacks the quick reply from the pop up which is really the part of the pop up i love :) thanks for pointing this out though i might try to still Handcent breaks my video messaging and uploading to pc to email the dog doing some stupid sh** just ruins the fun

    I tried all of these but in order to spare some system resources, I decided to stick with the stock messaging app.

    That's not true. I used SMS Popup for a long time, it gives you the options to Close, Delete, or Reply to a message. Then you can use the mic hands-free option if you like, or simply type your response and send it from there.
    I just swapped over to Handcent to give it a try, since I've seen such praise for it all over, but we'll see if I keep it or go back to SMS Popup.

    I tried Handcent and like it, but on thing that really bugged me was that in the top status bar the message icon would not go away unless you cleared it, even after having read and replied to a message. I just went back to the regular messagin app.
