Version 4.1.0 Beta 1

Jumped on the Project Fi network today and MMS wasn't working for me, so went ahead and spent the afternoon fixing it and it's working now.

Results of this is going to be improved MMS consistency across the board I'm hoping, no matter what carrier your own. The new method supports any Android 5.0+ device and is enabled automatically when you get the update. It also doesn't require you to mess with any APNs or things like that on your device when you're not sure what they should be, everything should be configured automatically.

If you don't find it working for you, go ahead and turn it off in MMS settings with the "System Controlled MMS" option. If it doesn't work, make sure that you read through the FAQs in the app as well and send me a log so I can correct it.

Let me know what your results are when you get the update, should be up in ~2 hours to any beta testers!

4.1.0 seemed to fix all of my MMS issues on Project Fi, but it looks like 4.1.2 broke it again. I'm able to send MMS, and get notifications when receiving MMS, but can't see the message in the conversation thread.

Trouble with vcards. I can send them but when I receive one and click it, a blank contact shows.

Using your app and am loving it! Best sms client for android. One thing where I suggest is, App can be implemented with a Recycle bin so that accidentally deletes can never bother. Do you think this ideas worthwhile?

If you want, you can enable archiving in advanced settings. Then deleting something will send it there instead of it gone forever.

I wish my text bubbles had my contact photo next to them (instead of head & shoulders icon), just like the contacts I am texting with have their photo next to their text bubbles.

Having issues with my MMS messages being separated from my SMS messages. Also, they have trouble sending sometimes. This affects group messaging as well, as it separates all incoming and outgoing messages into separate threads.

Any help?

Did you change any other settings? Other than checking the box for System, I did not touch anything else. I'm also on 5.1.1.

I have a nexus 6p and am having a problem with priority mode. When I enable it and have it set to notify for starred contacts I do not get notified. I have tried setting for all contacts and still nothing with priority mode. Priority mode works if using Google messenger as default but not evolvesms. Any suggestions?

This app doesn't work for me at all. I don't have the beta downloaded I have the public release on Google play. App never receives any SMS even though I'm actually being sent SMS they just never appear. Galaxy note 5 tmobile

Did you disable all other messaging apps? Did you set evolve as your default messaging app and give all permissions? By just saying it doesn't work is not enough info to fix the problem.

Just curious if the app can be more responsive and quick? Some transitions while loading conversations will be laggy. Love the swiping features throughout the app for speed but it should respond as quickly as we can swipe.

I have a similar issue with the rotate animation. It's not smooth at all

Having a problem on LG G4 Android 6.0 where I sporadically can't select a contact's mobile number after typing their name. Pressing on their number simply does nothing. Exiting out of the message and back in sometimes fixes it but other times I have to try multiple times.

Is there a way to back-up messages from one phone and restore them on a new one?

I later found this as an add-on feature.  The Google Drive option didn't seem to work but Dropbox did.  Also, I archived my contact pictures from the old phone in the EvolveSMS folder.  Is there anyway to restore those as well?  I tried just putting them in the same EvolveSMS folder on the new phone but it doesn't seem to recognize them. +Jacob Klinker

About this community

This community is for discussing and beta testing EvolveSMS. 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

Been using this app a while. Couple of bugs I think. Whenever I add number to private box it has disappeared next time I go back into it. Also fingerprint authentication for security settings not working. Am I missing something or are these bugs?

I have just downloaded EvolveSMS for my Nexus 6P. I have set the notification setting to 1 long vibration for all messages and a custom one for my wife's messages. However it still uses the system default 2 vibrations when I get a message. In fact not on the notification settings seems to be having any effect. Why is Evolve not overriding this? I was prviously using Textra and it has been overriding the system. Thanks.

Hi, I'm new to Evolve..

And maybe I'm just not too familiar with it yet, but is their an option of having didn't colored themes and/or wallpapers per contact conversation?

If not, is this something that might be implemented in the future?

Thanks for your time.
