My interest in Galaxy S is waning and my interest in HTC One is rising. In part to Samsung turning in to Applesung and HTC's good sound and metal case.  I am satisfied with my S3 and it still has a lot of life in it but I'm interested to see if the M8 comes out swinging next week.  -- and how long it will be until we start seeing CM11 nightlies.

Is there a way to change the action bar text color other than setting evolve_theme_base?

Oh, sweet!  That will be a nice little addition.

I'm working on a new theme (bubbles, no contact photots) and have the dreaded issue of received group messages showing up super thin on the left.  I've been pounding my head  against the wall over this for a few  hours.  Anyone have some insight?  I do not have any maxWidth set that would force it to be smaller. 

I don't like asking someone else to do my own homework (so-to-speak) but this one has me stumped.

(ps. colors and background have been changed to preserve full effect for release)

Even with this aligning the date to the right of the sending bubble causes issues in the bubble width. If you send a text containing just the word 'ok' the date is cut short to just 2 characters.

Changing the date field to 'wrap_content' corrects the date but then breaks the date alignment forcing it back to the left.

I still believe that because the app primarily uses the xml only to set up the left bubble and mirrors this to some extent to create the sent bubble it is restricting true customisation.

I love when you have home and work accounts and Google keeps suggesting that you might know yourself

not that I know of.  Honestly, I just tune it out and haven't really looked in to it.

At work I use a Linux PC with another Linux VM.  At home I have a W7 PC with a Linux VM.  The only thing I use Windows for is to play Age of Empires once every 2 years. 

I think it's time to make the switch at home...

Does anyone know how to do an embedded link in the Play Store description?  for example  "check out this link"  displays on the screen but when you click it, it will take you to the actual URL.

I tried <a> but it doesn't work and I've seen it done in other app descriptions.

yep, I gave it another try and it works.  I must have fat-fingered something wrong the first time.  Thanks again!

version 1.02 is up on the Play Store with +Peter D's request for sender photo in action bar.  I've updated the free link in the OP, above.

I did this one for the learning experience and fun.  Not even sure if I'll get 3 downloads but my wife likes it and that goes a long way ;)  It's free. And it also has a separate landscape background so it doesn't look distorted when you turn your phone.

This will remain open source.  I'd love to give new themers a link for reference once everything is nice and tidy.  I have one issue left.  Group messages are skinny.  If anyone wants to download and give the message.xml a lookover, I'll gladly bow in your general direction (and probably send a buck and some stars too!)

I guess I'll have to make a Tarheel theme ;)

For design purposes, I'm trying to full understand the delivered bubble. My carrier doesn't support it. Can someone please explain? Is it different by carrier?  Does it just flash for a second or does the message remain in the delivered bubble indefinitely when this functionality is turned on?

Actually, +Glen Westerberg, I loved how Marietta handled the delivered bubbles.

Is it normal for the background image to mutate when I turn the phone to landscape mode?

works for me too.  I just rotated 90 degrees for a quick test and put it in drawable-land-nodpi and it worked.  Thanks!  Sorry I wasn't at my desk earlier to help flush this out.

I prefer message bubbles to go all the way across, but it appears that most of the themes have short bubbles.  Am I really in the minority here?  

I am not trying to get themers to change their themes, but am genuinely interested in what people prefer. I am going to start an impromptu poll and hope that it doesn't utterly fail.  See comments below and plus one either or both.

+Glen Westerberg For me, it really depends on the theme itself. There are some themes that would look terrible with short bubbles, and vice versa. It's all up to aesthetics and taste. So I can't really vote one way or the other.
