Ease of Use: 5/5
SMS Popup is a must-have extension to your standard text messaging app. The user interface is aesthetically pleasing and functional. When you receive a new text message, a dialog box will popup with the message, who sent it, and the options to Reply, Close, or Delete the message. When you choose to reply (with the Quick Reply option activated), you can respond directly from the popup. Even more awesome, you can use the voice button to use the speech-to-text feature. I tested this out a few times and it works quite well. Great for when you’d rather not workout those thumbs.
Furthermore, the app comes with an extensive list of customization features. A very nice (and unique) feature is the ability to customize individual contact notifications. With this feature, you can have SMS Popup ignore certain contacts, play a specific ringtone, blink a particulr LED color/rate, and more. Now you can know who is texting you before even unlocking your phone.
Note: If you are hearing/seeing multiple messaging notifications, check that you have disabled notifications in your other text messaging apps. Additionally, if you have any questions about the app or need some how-to help, the developer has a wonderful FAQ page. SMS Popup FAQ page.
