    Sorry for the last update. There was a problem with publishing that caused constant crashes. Hopefully its fixed now

    BETA. Wait, scratch that. ALPHA.

    OpenGL Messaging is an sms/messaging app built using AndEngine.

    AndEngine is a 2D OpenGL gaming engine that I have 'repurposed' to form a different approach to the typical messaging/sms application.

    This application is in its VERY early days of development and I encourage you to leave ratings that reflect and take this into account. And yes, I know it looks very metro-y

    The more people that have/keep this app installed, the more motivated I will be to develop it. So stay tuned and provide feedback

    Email me at if you have anything you wish to say :)

    Differentiating Features:
    -Send SMS doodles to other users of the app by using the menu button and changing to draw mode
    -OpenGL graphics
    -Flexible animations

    How To:
    -To send a message, swipe the arrow to the right
    -If you need a regular text box to edit the text message then long press the reply box
    -Press the hardware options button to show a few settings
    -When viewing a message thread, hold the persons name to view their number

    Known Issues (tested on a Nexus 4):
    -There are no notifications
    -Messages sometimes dont load when you first open a message thread
    -Messages dont autoload when a new one comes in
    -Messages disappear dont actually delete
    -Messages dont always sent or, if they do, get recorded
    -Long pressing messages is inconsistent
    -Drawn/doodles sms messages dont render if theyre too long
    -Sometimes the reply box appears at the top of the window
    -Some lag in places
    -LOTS more
