    This app is the first I install after every hard reset. It is an app that has popup for sms but it is also very customizable.

    You can have the pop up come up only when you want it to, you can change font packs, you can also add a widget that lets you know how many messages you have received.

    I have a couple gripes, recently they changed the way the settings are in the app and they are hard to navigate through. The way the settings are set up are not intuitive and I am hoping that the makers change this very soon. Also with the Hero lock screen messages app shows messages at the bottom, or the first few words, and this app doesn't do that. I know it isn't proprietary but I wish it would work anyway.

    The fact is that this app can be themed and you can have your threads look however you want them, even changing themes and backgrounds from person to person. They have fixed the lag that was very bad in the first few versions and it is on par with the messages app, except for a little KB lag sometimes. I think this is a great app, which I found when I had the messages problem as an early adopter of the Hero, but I keep it around because it is very useful.

    4.5 out of 5, fix the settings for a 5
