"See your incoming SMS at a glance and reply faster"

Reviewed by / Jun 08, 2011

SMS Popup provides a convenient pop-up dialog when a message is received and allows you to reply quickly.

SMS Popup makes it easier to read and reply to text messages. When you receive an SMS, a pop-up dialog with three buttons shows up on your screen. You can close the dialog, delete the SMS or reply to it. If you choose reply, you can compose a message by typing or using speech-to-text. You can also "preset" the reply ie. schedule it to reply later.

Some features can be configured in preferences. For example, you can customize notifications by changing the sound, vibration patterns, LED color (if available in your device) and the notification icon. You can do this for individual contacts or for all of them and you can also schedule reminders just in case you missed the first one. Finally, it allows you to enable privacy mode to hide sender name and message content.

There are some flaws, though… For example, there aren't any options for customizing its appearance, there's no way to reply to multiple contacts from the pop-up window and the pop-up only works when the screen is unlocked.

SMS Popup was developed by Adam K, an individual developer who has just released this app and its paid version with remarkable success.

We really appreciate apps that improve the performance of our Android and this is certainly one of them. Now replying to text messages is easier and faster. Highly recommendable.

SMS Popup provides a convenient popup dialog when a message is received that allows you to quickly read and reply to messages. It also provides in-depth customization of message notifications including contact specific sound, vibrate and LED settings.

NOTE: SMS Popup does mark message as "read" - if the notification tray icon does not disappear, make sure you disable the system messaging app notifications and use SMS Popup's notifications instead. Please see FAQ for more information.

    See title. Old messages keep popping up. I have reinstalled it several times, restarting between, with no results. I have uninstalled it until I find the problem is fixed.

    One of the first apps I ever installed on the G1. Carried on through the G2 & desire. Sadly the S3 has its own method. Now I'm back on HTC, back on the app and better for it!
