    Chompsms is alive and well, it's currently in a beta phase for Android 2.0, head over to http://www.chompsms.com/beta/chompsms.apk on your droid and check it out if you like. It's quite pixelated but the devs say they are working on it, and there still is no MMS support yet. But at least we know its still around.

    lol.... its the iphone reincarnated only 100x better

    although i could live without the bubbles...

    i like this app but i also like the way the txt is in droid so im kinda torn. the layout for droid 2.0 is a lot better but the features of chompsms rock.

    oh yeah, seems to work ok for me too.

    Working good for me too. I had Handcent, it is not uninstalled. One thing in the settings of ChompSMS it ask if you are on T-mobile... I kept it checked because that's the default. So far so good.

    yes, forgot to mention that. something else i just ran into on the droid is that it overrides the camera button... trying to bring up the camera brings up the quick sms.

    anyone know how to fix this or do we need to wait for an update?

    In the settings there is a quick compose check mark. Un-check this and the camera button is the camera button once more.

    Settings - Scroll down - Uncheck Quick Compose

    I'm playing with both Chomp and Handcent right now. I actually think I like the features of Handcent better. What kinds of things are you guys enjoying with Chomp that causes you to choose it over Handcent or the default client? I haven't really had a chance to use it extensively yet.

    after i read this i went and tried handcent, and its 10x better. the settings and everything are far more configurable and you can retain the original android message style.

    i am having a problem with contact pictures though. they're not showing up.

    Chompsms might do the same thing but one of the things that I like about handcent is that it unlocks the phone for me when I get a message. I don't have to push the button and swipe the screen. I also like the layout.

    Do either of these automatically send 2 texts when 161+ characters are sent to non-VZW phones?

    Is there any app for that?

    i read somewhere this does but have yet to test it.

    this is really nice, but it sucks you can't hit the enter button on the physical keyboard to send the text, it just goes down a space, so you have the tap the send button on the screen itself

    does chomp still lack the ability to send and receive MMS? I know it used to and that is why I switched to handcent.

    BLOWNCO Well-Known Member

    it doesn't for now its being updated for it tho

    sorry meant doesn't
  19. dbarrett480

    dbarrett480 Member

    That isn't very comforting, they have been saying they will update it for like 9 months now. I will stick with handcent.

    How do you keep from gettimg two popups when you have handcent installed?
  21. Graz

    Graz Well-Known Member

    Open the default SMS program, go into settings and turn the notification off.

    Thanks. That's The weird part. I've done that. Even rebooted. Still get the smaller built in SMS pop-up on top of the handcent one!

    I used Handcent for prolly a couple weeks or more and really like it. But I decided to try ChompSMS about 3 days ago and am loving it. They are both very similar but I am prefering Chomp at the moment just seems smoother to me but maybe thats just the newness talking. It does lack the repeat notifications and I am having a problem with that.

    I did email the devs and they said they will consider adding repeat notifications in the next release so if anybody else wants to see this as well, shoot then an email and voice your opinion.

    Handcent now includes this.

    handcent in better than chomp sms IMO. more features and customizeable, better UI and works better. i.e sends/recieves mms, also does split text to non VZW customers over 160 characters, you can use iphone bubble style or android style messaging ( android FTW) etc.
