Seems like a great idea The app is able to send and receive txt messages on my Tab S, but it uses white text on a white background and I don't know how to fix that. Cant see anything. If I hold the message like I am going to copy to clipboard and can sort of see the message. Hopefully its an easy fix, the app seems useful otherwise. Sending an email to developer for advice. No response after 5 days. unusable.
