    First off, thank you Handcent team for creating such an amazing app for our phones!

    Secondly, I love the fact that we can customize the colors of the bubbles, but I can't, for the life of me, pick some nice looking colors! I currently use the stock ones and I've tried for a good three hours to find a better set of colors but can't seem to do it.

    So, what colors do you use for your sms bubbles? If you use the bubbles that is. If you could please post your Red#, Green#, Blue#, and transparency. Pictures would be great too! I guess it would also help if you say whether you use a picture or color as the background (thought I know the Droid has an issue with pics).

    Bumping this in hopes that people will post. All the colors I've tried just look awful.

    There's another thread in this very section a few down from this one discussing the pros and cons of the app. You'll find lots of information & discussion there. Let's keep this thread on topic which is custom user color combinations specifically.

    It was pretty difficult to find a colour I liked... but I'm finally happy with;

    received sms (silver) --
    red: 255
    green: 255
    blue: 255
    transparency: 130

    sent sms (green) --
    red: 0
    green: 255
    blue: 0
    transparency: 255

    The two things that would absolutely make this app perfect; a hero like widget to scroll through messages and the ability to change the colour of the area around the enter text area (currently a dirty gold). Great app though!! :D

    That looks pretty good. I used the Hero skin and black theme. I also changed the font color to white (max on all colors) on the silver bubble and it's MUCH easier to read. Try it out.

    In Case you want to still change your background, check out Marianne's Colorcodes for a ton of colors and their hex code.

    I've been using the silver and green since I originally saw this thread with the dark theme. Looks pretty nice. I'm thinking about changing the green to blue though.
