GO SMS… the new king of SMS apps!

| January 18, 2011 | 3 Replies

This is one awesome app I just had to tell you about! GO SMS is an awesome new messaging app that will definitely make you think twice about using the stock SMS app and even Handsent and Chomp for that matter! Even better this app is now FREE in the market and just received a nice update.  Go SMS is brought to us by the same developers (GO Dev Team) that have made the up and coming GO launcher replacement app.

GO SMS is a highly customizable messaging app with multiple themes,  cool UI,fast and convenient SMS/MMS experience.

Some of the MANY features:

-Chat Style
-Multi Themes
-Popup,Quick Reply
-Full MMS/SMS Support
-Look Customize
-Backup/Restore
-Security Lock
-Individual Contact Notification
-Batch Mode
-Faster and Slimmer than handcent SMS or chompSMS

Couple of tips from the GO Dev Team from the market:

*** TIPS ***
- To make GO SMS as default, Open stock SMS, in Settings, disable the Notifications,and in GO SMS’s Settings,verify that Notifications option is enabled.
- If you have trouble of receiving MMS,please go to the built-in messaging app’s settings,and enable the MMS auto-retrieve.
- For time offset issue,try: Settings->Receive Settings-> set time adjustment offset.
- You can set “unlock screen when receiving message”,”privacy mode” in “Notification Settings”;Set signature in “Send Settings”,etc.

I have never been a huge fan of SMS replacement apps but this one made me change my mind and I think you will all agree with me due to its ability to customize to what ever style suits you! I have set a picture from my gallery as a background for my inbox and you can also change multiple colors and styles in the app its self!

So give this a go and hit up the link below (FREE in the market or on appbrain) and drop us a comment to let us know what you think about this great app!

    This looks like the SMS app from MIUI ROMs. Wonder who ripped off of who first? :)

    Just wish I could replace Google Voice with one of these SMS replacement apps. The Google Voice app leaves so much to be desired.

    A very cool program whose ultimate downfall is that they issue too many updates….and screw their users in the process by obliterating their settings…..repeatedly (like a few times a day when they do their half-baked updates). QA process????
