Good day everyone! I have spent the last three months working on my text messaging app Texpert!

After working on my last app SMS Manager, I realized I could take my new found knowledge to create my own Text Messaging app. After much encouragement from my girlfriend, I began working on Texpert everyday. I know there are a great number of SMS/MMS apps out there that all have their pluses, but I believe mine is very special. Texpert is a feature packed yet very clean messaging app. How is that possible? I have added features which I find to be truly meaningful and not bloat (think things like stickers, extra emojis, etc.). This app was built with myself in mind first, but I have developed it to a point now where I am sure many of you will like it as well! :D

Here are the things that set it apart:

- Schedule SMS/MMS/Group messages to be sent at a certain time or location
- Fun and quick animations which are unique
- Ability to raise phone to ear to call a contact
- Customizable contact color support
- Custom group chat names

Now that you know what my app is all about, it would really mean a lot to me if y'all checked it out! :D You don't even need to use it full time, any feedback is greatly appreciated!

I have 300 codes to give away:

Here are instuctions on how to use the code:

Thank you for your time, I really hope you enjoy the app! :D

Hi everyone! Hope some of y'all have been enjoying WearOS SMS! Today I am really excited to tell y'all about the phones 2.0 release!

- First and foremost I reworked the design of the app to Material Design 2.0! The phone app is pretty simple but hopefully the new design is a little more inviting and less bland.
- I also updated the app to Android P so you can expect it to work great once that update comes around.
- Finally, I added a notification feature (as many have requested) so it is now possible to receive notifications of new SMS on the watch! The notification is styled based on the app style and shows the sender as well as their message. Since this was a big addition I did not immediately add the ability to reply, but that will definitely be coming in a future release!

As always I am open to all feedback so please try the update out, and if you haven't, give the app a try too! It's free!
Thanks and have a good day! :D

I am using the Android Arch PagedListAdapter class. The issue I have run into is that since my app is a chat style app, I need to scroll to position 0 when an item is inserted. But the PagedListAdapter finds the diffs and calls necessary methods on the background thread so it seems that there is no dependable way to call layoutManager.scrollToPosition(0)

If anyone has any ideas on how I could scroll at the right time, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
