EndlessJabber Desktop Messaging Support for EvolveSMS

Last update, I teamed up with Pushbullet to bring simple, quick and elegant desktop messaging to EvolveSMS. Not enough for you? Looking for a fully integrated desktop messaging client instead? EndlessJabber is for you then, and it is now fully compatible with EvolveSMS as of version 1.8.5.

EndlessJabber provides a service that syncs your messages between your phone, tablet and desktop when installed. Then you can go to the EndlessJabber website (www.endlessjabber.com/web) and view all of your conversations, create new messages, schedule messages, send pictures, and tons of other cool things. 

Information on getting EndlessJabber is included in settings under the "Desktop Messaging" tab, along with expanded explainations on how Pushbullet works and how to use it. Go there and you'll be able to download EndlessJabber and start using it.

If you'd like more info on EndlessJabber, head on over to the beta community and do some reading:
https://plus.google.com/communities/108495933831197593002

After setting up EndlessJabber, let your messages sync if you have that option enabled and then you can start using it, everything will work automatically.

A couple of other notable points from this update:
- Fully finished Android Wear support
- Overhaul of adding contacts to a new message to align with Android L standards
- Some Android L preview features
- Bug fixes for Pushbullet
- Updated Roboto Light font from Android L
- Bug fixes to scheduled sms and in general
- A few other things, read the changelog in the app (plus, a few added surprises for those willing to look)!

Update will be out in the next two hours or so for everyone!

Maybe I'm missing something about Android Wear support, but it seems like if you receive texts from multiple people, all texts are combined onto one card.  When you swipe to the right, it gives you a single "Reply".  Is it possible to reply to an individual text SMS thread on Android Wear?

+Lorenzo Rey Camejo I am runing android L preview on emulators, so the status bar is real not taken from  google I/O screenshots. The icons in the status bar are modified to hide the black edge of emulators.  BTW the app icon is exactly the same as shown in the screenshots.

Couple issues with Android Wear support:

1) When you have texts from multiple contacts, they are combined onto one card, meaning that you can't really do much with the card.  It appears others apps supporting Android Wear split their notifications so that one card appears per contact.

2) Because of #1, if you click "Reply" for the combined notification, nothing seems to happen except for the card being dismissed.  Resolving #1 would probably resolve this one.

Thanks for a great app, and your great support!  :)

PHONE NUMBER BUG SINCE UPDATE 1.8.6:
I have "could not send" error message when my contact number has a "+" in the beginning. Very annoying, it was good before. This problem is only since previous update (1.8.6). To a number with 06 in the beginning I can send message, a number with +36 I cannot.

Hi!
I have a weird bug since 1.8.5: when sharing something from another application, Evolve never succeed to send the message. However, if I try to send again (when long-pressing on the message, not from the external app) it will work. I don't know is I'm an isolated case since I haven't seen anyone reporting it, I'll try to provide a Logcat later if you need it =) (my phone is not rooted, and I need to install the SDK on my current laptop)

Well it seems the last update solved this issue (I haven't noticed that contacts I tried with had a + before their phone number) =)

Can anyone tell me how I can make the contact image fill my contact background? I have an octogonal picture background but it still shows a circle inside the octagon. Any ideas?

Try to adjust the padding or margin around your  imageview as needed, also set android:adjustViewBounds="true" to have your contact pics auto adjust to their bounds.

Hi, I'm using Evolve since a long time now but I installed in on my new phone and my messages are truncated and start with two dots like ".. the end of my message" I don't know if it comes from bad settings or what.
Any help ?

The message appears again correctly when they have been unloaded and loaded again I think (When I'm looking back in the SMS stream and that I come back to the most recent). If it helps

Got my G Watch today :D

Could you please reduce the vibration amount? +Jacob Klinker 
I feel that with constant Evolve SMS notifications it may not turn out so well for me :L

Functionality is great by the way!

To join in on the beta testing fun, all you need to do is join this community, then click on the link below (which you may need to do from your computer) and opt into the beta. Then you can download any beta updates that I put up (just remember that there will not be betas all the time, I do need to take breaks every once in a while). Beta link: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.klinker.android.evolve_sms Some community rules: 1) Everyone will be respectful and contribute towards bettering the app 2) Post in the correct section or I will remove the post 3) Stay on topic as best as possible 4) Search before posting a question that has already been asked, Google is best known as a search engine after all and I'll probably not be happy with you if I have to reanswer a simple question... nobody wants that lol. That’s about it, respect will be the biggest and if I feel someone is breaking that rule, they will be banned. Hope you all enjoy what I’ve created here, I’m always open to suggestions as well (but that in no way means I will actually act on them unless I really like them lol). Enjoy! #keepsliding #evolvesms
 
Just updated both of my Android L themes with new, super smooth animations. Here is a low quality video to give you a peek at what they look like. Update should be live and on the play store.

Fairly new user, really appreciate the Android Wear support. As that evolves, here's a feature I'd like to see:

Canned quick replies on the watch (e.g. Yes, No, etc) in addition to response via voice, like Hangouts gives you but having the ability to customize the list of quick replies.

Not sure if this has been discussed before... Any way to add a little number in the launcher showing how many new/unread texts are available. Much like the iPhone function that shows how many new texts.

Couple of issues with 1.8.8 Contacts:
1- All contact numbers seem to be available for texting in 1.8.8, where only mobile numbers used to be available. Not sure if this is a functionality change or bug. If functionality, can an option be added to only display/use mobile numbers? Group messages wouldn't always select the mobile number since the change which caused issues with texts going to work, home, etc.

2- Issue already reported, but just trying to keep track. Composing new message and hitting + button autopops text into field thus not allowing you to choose any contacts. In order to choose from the pick list, the text must first be deleted. Hitting + after already choosing one contact wipes the entire line. With the other changes, I'm not sure what the value of the + button is anymore? Seems confusing, but i'm sure i'm missing something! :-)
(Pic below if it helps)

Thanks in advance.

Great News! New PC is up and running (has been for quite a while but now most of the bugs are worked out) and Android Studio is installed and working properly. Let the themes live! Already have a great idea for a theme, which will be paid. :) It's great to be back!

Probably just clearing the cache (enter contact picture manager and exit) will reapply them, I doubt the actual sync makes a difference.

Here is another Android L wannabe called Android L2. This is slightly different. Mostly for people that don't like the extremely bright white background in their face! 
Google Play Store Links:

By the way my post was deleted. I'd like to know why. (otherwise I will keep posting.)

Personally I find this much easier on the eye than the original L theme.
