"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.

    Good job, my msg pops up in other apps! You REALLY should add a toggle option to only pop up when in other apps, don't really need a msg pop up especially when I'm not doing anything. Also on my note2 the notification doesn't clear after reading and sendi

    Nice and very usefull just wish it was more customisable, like colors, gestures like Swype away to close and slide down to open long messages like bite sms on jailbreak iphones, wish bite sms was on android, but this is closest thing to it.

    This app does the job, as far as an SMS POPUP Notifier goes, better than any others I've tried and even reviewed. So what's the BIG exception? Whenever I use it and messages come in, I can NOT get the number beside the phones SMS app (that shows number
