Can't see messages... Anyone have any idea why this isn't working properly on my galaxy tab S? The messages are extremely light to the point that I can't read them. they darken as I hold on the message but then the copy message window comes up. App is useless in its current state for me. emailed the company several times and no response. Paid for the app and I'm getting no support. Super infuriating considering my money only buys me a year of use. Absurd.

Stopped Working, Non-Existent Support Worked ok not great. Missed messages. Now no messages show on the Galaxy Tab 3. Zero support. Use Mighty Text instead
