    This is just in beta, but I see it as an improvement already. I will update it as I learn how.

    Future Goals:
    -Change background and font colors
    -Finish theming/recoloring images

    Download http://db.tt/LcmbS9s

    Make sure to uninstall the original VZMessages app if you have it

    I've been trying to edit the XML files, but I don't have a way to make the code show. All I get is some code and a bunch of empty boxes, symbols, etc. I need to know how to edit this in order to do anything significant.

    Yeah, but I cannot view the actual xml code. I need to decompile it or something.

    You're more than welcome to help. Modify the xml as you see fit.

    I'm going to make a dark theme as soon as I can find a way to decompile xml. Blackground with white text and grey headers, basically. This is just practice.

    I would gladly take your help.

    That would be awesome. I might do that before the Black theme.

    Uninstall the other one first. Then install the themed app.
