    Check out this new SMS app that was posted on Droid-Life. I don't know that I will ever get much use out of it on a day-to-day basis, but it's pretty fun to show to non-smartphone users!

    I'll definitely download this. I'd assume though that it would really drain battery since the camera has to be on.

    Thought of a better use! Watching tv while texting. This way you can still keep watching!

    I tried this out at the office. It was pretty difficult to text, walk, and see where you're going all at the same time lol. I normally type with the camera facing the floor but I tried it with it facing right in front of me. It made it tougher to text haha.

    Also, for our Droid X's, the camera is basically where our left hand would be. You have to position it correctly so you don't block the camera.

    To be showing off i would be using my speech to text and not even have to look at it except to send it. though this would be cool to just mess around with.

    Downloaded and installed. I won't use it but it'll definitely be a cool app to show off my phone, haha.

    It's crazy slow, choppy and puts a horrible image on the screen, it's kind of cool though!

    I would recomend not installing this...I dont have a rooted phone and maybe it was just my phone, but after I installed it and ran it and then closed it..every screen on my phone had a black square covering about 3/4ths of it. I tried ATK to kill everything but it didnt work. I managed to uninstall it and the black square was still there. I rebooted my phone and it was fixed...but that was scary enough for me to almost cry. just kidding but yeah.

    That's strange. I would have to say it was just your phone. It didn't do anything abnormal on mine and I've not heard anyone else say anything about it.

    You aren't missing much, it's just a novelty app that is fun to show people.

    Yeah nothing strange has happened with my phone since installing either. I will delete it eventually, just want to show a few more people first.

    Same thing happened to mine, had to reboot inorder to get the black part to come back to life. Even when I had it installed, it wouldn't do any thing, tried to type, but nothing, so never did actually work except for putting a permanent screen saver on part of the screen.
