  5. Hey, I saw sms manager on the android market today and its seems like its an exact copy of your app. When I opened the menu, I thought for a second I had opened your app by accident.

  6. Hi. Having some problems making it work. I disabled the default sms notifier, and enable sms pop up. But now nothing happens when i get a message. I have a samsung galaxy spica (i5700) running on android 2.1

  7. Same problem as Morte. I have Samsung Galaxy S.

  8. @Tung: thanks for the heads up, SMS Popup is open source and unfortunately this means some people will copy the app and charge for it without permission - at the very least they should release the code to their version. i would encourage people to buy the app, rate and comment on it and refund the cost immediately. otherwise there isn't much i can do sadly.

    @Morten/@gsx600f: that's strange, so no popup shows at all? does the popup show when you leave system notifications on? if you haven't already, please file a bug here with as much information as possible:

  9. Hi Adam,

    When the phone is locked and I receive a sms, the sms popup appears on the screen without having to put the pattern unlock code. Is there to make it so that I have to put in my pattern code before I can see the popup? I tried privacy mode, but I dont like the fact that you have to click 'view' then unlock then the sms appears. I much rather have to put in my pattern code then view the popup. Running on a Samsung Gakaxy S.

  10. @gt88: you can turn the option "Screen On for Popup" off so that the screen will not turn on and unlock when a message comes in (the popup will be waiting for you after unlock).

  11. Hi!
    I have a SE X10 recetly updated to 2.1. With the new Eclair update a strange thing happens when i recieve a message. The Sms popup shows, but if i press the Reply button (on the popup), im just getting into the stock sms app where i have to put in the recievers name to send him/her a message. Just like when i press the Write a new message button in the stock sms app.

    When i had 1.6 i came to the conversation i had with that person, when i clicked the reply button, and thats how i want i to be!

  12. @Mini: I don't have a X10 to test with, but this is most likely due to something they changed in the system messaging app. To fix, you can try this: SMS Popup -> Additional Settings -> Button Configuration -> change the "Reply" button to "Reply (to phone number)".

  13. is there a way to make it not vibrate when a text comes in while i am on a phone call? people can hear the vibration and they say its really annoying. maybe a small beep instead?

    ReplyDelete
  14. @angelesr69: that's actually a feature of the phone you have (it vibrates when a notification plays while you're on the phone), however I am looking into a workaround which will just suppress the notification when you're on a call

    ReplyDelete
  15. i'm not too sure that is true. Handcent, chomp, and even the stock messaging have options to restrict vibrations while on a call. how quickly can you have a fix if i donate 15 bucks? i REALLY need this app.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well yes, the other apps do exactly as I said to prevent it ... its just on some phones (like Nexus One) this doesn't happen by default. I'm a little strapped for time right now but will try and get this added in the next release (next month or so).

  17. Any link I can see for 1.0.9 has been de-activated. This app looks awesome and appears to be what I need. How do I get it? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Easiest way is from Android Market on your phone (just search for "SMS Popup"). Otherwise you can also get it from the Google Code site (however you will miss out on being notified of updates then):

  19. Add the button a "NEXT" SMS.
    When I receive some messages that I see only the first.

  20. @Nik: yes, this is something I'm already working on.
