Joviak SMS Beta

Joviak SMS Beta


Have you ever wondered why the way SMS interfaces work hasn't really changed much over the last few years? Joviak™ SMS is an experiment to change that. Joviak SMS doesn't try to look like other SMS Apps; instead, Joviak SMS takes a unique approach to SMS messaging. First, Joviak SMS greets you with the entire content of your "active" messages. These are messages have not replied to or have not manually ignored. Once you reply to a message, it is considered "inactive" and is removed from the inbox. Of course, you can also ignore a message without replying by long-tapping a message in the inbox and selecting "ignore." The design of Joviak SMS is to make SMS messaging faster and easier, and we hope you like it!

Permissions:
The Internet and Access Network State permissions is used for ads or Google Analytics.

---

The standard Facebook App blocks third party Apps from accessing contact photos, meaning we will not be able to use them. However, we can get Facebook pictures from most HTC Sense phones. HTC has their own Facebook App which does not have these restrictions.

----

Joviak SMS is no longer under active development. Do disable the advertisements (and everything network related), under the settings menu tap the Build Name repeatedly very quickly (I believe the threshold is three times in a second.) I was unable to find the source code, thus the reason there is no update to fix this.

Recent changes:
- Several major crashes should be fixed. (All the reported crashes have been solved to my knowledge.)
- Overhauled visual style. Feedback is welcome!
- Ability to have a background picture. (Settings -> Wallpaper.)
- For people I know personally, there is an ability to deactivate all data usage from Joviak SMS. Contact me for details.

Good idea but it's ahead of it's time I feel it's pretty cool but the format is too simple. It lacks a sense of professionalism. The messaging formats aren't changed for a reason.
