Convenient, extensible popup alerts for new SMS/MMS messages. Would you like to extend the functionality of Glowfly beyond text messages? Be sure to check out our growing selection of plugins and themes! Currently third party plugins are limited by time, resources and of course third party developer cooperation. If there is a third party app you would like to see, please feel free to contact us and let us know.

In order to get Glowfly to work with Google Voice, you will need to set Google Voice text messages to be sent and received within the SMS app. This option is found within the Google Voice mobile app.

**NOTE** - You will need to disable the system sms notifications in order to not receive multiple alerts. Android 4.4 (KitKat) does not allow apps such as Glowfly to mark messages as read.

"An ICS-themed SMS/MMS popup app - sign me up! So far I haven't seen anything even remotely as good-looking, even in the most popular SMS apps out there - they all seem cheesy and all over the place. Well done, Spiderfly Studios!" ~ Android Police

Thank you for your support and all the nice reviews! Reviewing the app helps us out a lot by giving us valuable feedback that lends to future development.

We have listened and always will listen to you. We are working hard to add the features you have requested and to improve the app in all aspects. If you are experiencing any errors with the app, find a possible bug or have questions on a feature, please email us or visit our Facebook/Google+ pages so we can assist you rather than simply leaving a low rating and negative comment. This is the only way we can help resolve any issues you may be experiencing. We cannot respond directly to comments in the Play Store. Thank you!

**TIP** We have now given Glowfly access to other apps. One great use of this is already built into Android. Simply go to your widgets/shortcuts and set a new direct message for a contact. When you click on that shortcut you can choose Glowfly. Doing so will bring up the quick reply window where you can send a quick message.

Key Features:
✔ Android 4.0+ (ICS/JB) compatible.
✔ Scrolling for multiple unread popups with unread count.
✔ Quick replies.
✔ Single lines of text are centered, while multiple lines are left aligned for easier reading.
✔ Contact specific notifications.
✔ MMS pics shown in popup.
✔ Option to display popups over lock screen.
✔ Tablet friendly (SMS functionality required - i.e. Padfone.)
✔ Long press options.
✔ Popup customizations like hiding contact pictures, hiding all buttons and long press options.
✔ Themes and plugins for added functionality.
✔ 100% AWESOME!!!

Coming Soon:

    Still nothing else like it. Great app. I hope the devs keep supporting it. It would be great to see some new themes released for it.

    Looks great but notifications are displayed anywhere from 2 to 7 minutes after the message it actually arrived. Disable for now. AT&T Note 3

    Coming from Chomp SMS, which is a very nice app but can't view mms with popup. This app is so much lighter and give me everything I like. The only thing this app can't do is mark the message read after you dismiss it which I think it's a kit Kat issue.

    I really enjoy this app; it works much better than Handcent (IMO), which I had used for a couple of years. The only reason it's a star short of perfect is a recurring issue with the stock msg app. When I hit DISMISS on the pop up, it marks msg as read a

    I was excited to find this app after the reviews that I read. I was however disappointed to find that this app does not work with Textra. I contacted the developers and they stated this is a known issue. If this is a known issue I feel this is noted s
