SMS Popup v0.9.92 out now with text-to-speech!

Android Market should soon show the latest update to SMS Popup - v0.9.92 - I haven't had a lot of time to work on the app, so this release just cleans up some of the code (which as a user you won't really notice) and fixes a few bugs.

The only new thing to appear is TTS (text-to-speech) - you can now have your messages read aloud to you thanks to the amazing eyes-free TTS library. Keep in mind I threw this in at the last minute so it's likely to be buggy - to use it, simply long-press anywhere on the message popup. If you don't have the TTS app installed it will take you through setting things up.

SMS Popup v0.9.92

  • Improvements for status bar notifications (removed correctly now in certain circumstances)
  • Threads marked read correctly now when a message is deleted via the popup
  • Cupcake compatibility
  • Beta feature: Text-to-speech, hear your messages! (long-press on the popup to try this out)
Update: v0.9.93 is also out now, this release just fixes a single bug where notifications sometimes didn't trigger if the conversation view was open when the phone went to sleep
