ChompSMS conflicting with WidgetLocker
Samsung Galaxy S3 (unrooted)
After coming from Iphone ChompSMS was a god send because I was a heavy user for BiteSMS and ChompSMS is the same guys, this is a must have app if you message a lot. I also have WidgetLocker install and also love this app but there is one annoying problem which is preventing me from using it...
Everything works as it should when combined with these two apps with the exception of the the ChompSMS pop up incoming message panel, it doesn't work when WidgetLocker is set as the default lockscreen. When an incoming message comes, ChompSMS will wake and pop up a window showing you the message with quick reply options, this window does not work anymore, what happens is the lockscreen is unresponsive until you hit the "back" button on the S3 then swipe to unlock then the pop up window from ChompSMS appears when you're in the home screen.
This really defeats the purpose of ChompSMS as this is their signature and best feature. Once I turn off WidgetLocker as the default lockscreen app, ChompSMS pop up window works fine but when you sleep the device it goes back to the default TouchWiz lockscreen.
I've contacted both developers and have yet to hear a response, if anyone has faced this problem and has a solution please let me know, I've gone through both app settings with a fine tooth comb and have found no remedy.
Too bad, both of these apps I find are ESSENTIAL to my everyday use and absolute MUST HAVES. ChompSMS wins for me for priority so WidgetLocker is currently disabled until this issue is rectified.
Thx in advance!
