    Hello everyone.

    I want to comment so that hopefully this gets back to the people who write/update the android software for our smartphones.

    The newest form of Android SUCKS! When you're in a text message, there used to be a trash can icon so you could click one thing and delete a message. Now you have to click "more" which is just adding another step, and then click "delete." I suggest the developers go back to the old version of Android and compare the changes they've made. Any change they made that adds any extra steps to any part of the software should be reversed. Another example... in settings/applications/application manager. There is now an extra step to get into the application manager, which is unnecessary. Once you're in there you used to be able to turn off notifications for an ap right after clicking on that ap, the option was there in the list below the "install" and "force stop" buttons. Now you have to click on "notifications" and then move a slider to "off." That change added extra steps.

    These phones make our lives move faster, not slower. The changes like this that were made to the recent update to Android software is moving backwards, not forwards, and makes no sense at all to me.

    Does anyone else agree or have comments?

    What phone are you using. What update are you referencing? What texting app are you using?

    If you're using one of the new messaging apps, try swiping the message to the left to delete it.
