Big News and Updates for +Klinker Apps, Inc.

Let's start off this holiday weekend, for those of us in the US, in the right direction! How about some updates for your favorite apps?

I am happy to announce that, as of yesterday, I am officially the sole owner and developer of Klinker Apps! +Jacob Klinker and I have had an amazing run, but unfortunately he is getting ready to move away and the new job isn't something he can do along with this work, so you are all stuck with me now :)

Along with this BIG news, I have got some pretty sweet updates ready for everyone! Talon for Twitter, EvolveSMS, and Source News Reader are all getting sizable bumps this morning!

Go ahead and check the pictures on this post for the full change logs, but some highlights:

Talon:
- Pitch Black primary color option
- View media types (GIF/video) when looking at a users pictures on their profile
- UI improvements in app and for Android Nougat's multi-window
- Plus WAY more if you check out the changelog picture or the "What's New" section in settings
- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.klinker.android.twitter_l


Source: Build for Android Nougat!
- Huge tablet UX overhaul
- Pitch black primary color option
- New article viewer
- Again, WAY more if you check out the changelog :)
- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.klinker.android.source


EvolveSMS: Build for Android Nougat!
- Support for Android Marshmallow's internal "secure notifications" settings (Evolve had this before on its own, just supports it with Marshmallow's setting now too)
- New image viewer
- Transition animations
- And, for the last time, more if you check out the app!
- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.klinker.android.evolve_sms


Enjoy 'all - I can say with confidence, the future is looking so good for Klinker Apps! Look for more updates to come and maybe even a few more apps if I get around to finishing up some of my ideas and in-progress work. Let me know what you think!

Hi all,

I prefer using EvolveSMS, but the stock Samsung texting app has much better integration with Samsung Gear watches (in particular the Gear Fit 2).

Does anyone know how to get similar support/integration with Evolve? Or if anything is planned in an upcoming release?

You will never get that type of integration. Samsung made it that way for a reason.

I have a Motorola Moto Maxx XT1225 (the international, unlocked bootloader version of the Droid Turbo hardware) and I recently updated to a factory Marshmallow 6.0.1. ROM. I can get the initial splash screen and Marshmallow's ask for permissions for the app, but past that any attempts to run Evolve give me an "EvolveSMS has stopped" error. I've cleared cache, reinstalled the app, and even cleared everything under the stock messaging app, in case there was something in the SMS/MMS database that was corrupted, but none of that seems to fix the problem. Advice?

Did a wipe of the Data and Cache partitions and started fresh. I think something got borked when I was restoring apps from Titanium Backup, so I was a little more careful with it the second time through. Seems to be working ok now.

I've created several direct message widgets on my Nexus 6P running marshmallow but they don't always seem to work. Sometimes Evolve opens up ready to send a message to the person on the direct contact widget and sometimes it opens up to the last used conversation. Does Evolve not respond to the widgets or do I need to do something special? Thanks.

I am running into an issue with EvolveSMS on Android 5.0.2 on LG G2 where Notifications (beeps + vibrations) multiplies as the unread msgs increase. Due to this, the SMS notification on my fitbit also multiples, as the unread msgs increase.

For eg: If there are 3 unread msgs and if I get a new msg, I will get 4 beeps and 4 vibrations.

Is there is way to fix it ? pls advice... Thanks

Just tested the app and the only feature I'm missing is grouping of messages from strangers. GO SMS has this feature for some time and I'm loving it. Just the folder, where all the messages from people not on your contact list go. UNfortunately no other app has this feature - any chance of seeing it sometime soon in Evolve?

+Luke Klinker glad to help assume with the separation of the messages the picture can be separated too?

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

Is it possible to have the conversation be the default view when opening the app rather than the last single conversation?

Thanks in advance

The one thing I hate it's the pop-up reply. It'd not that I don't like the idea of that it's just threimplantation. It's difficult to close out of if you don't reply and sometimes it'll just stay that size when I try and go into the app.

What would be really nice would be a flushing pop-up reply where just a little circle pops up and you can choose to read it in the app, ignore it or Mark a read, or reply to it. I'll try and find a screenshot of what was being used in my old Rom (superman for s7)
Thanks

Been using this app for about a year and it's got to be the best texting app ever but one problem I'm facing is this...

If I get say like, 4 or more pictures in a row, enough that I have to scroll down to view them all, as I scroll down, as soon as the first picture scrolls up and out of view it will immediately jump to the bottom of the pictures. This leaves no way to access the ones that "jumped" out of view on the screen. I have to go into another text app to view them consecutively.

Keep getting multiple notifications in the notification pull down. They all come in at the same time and my notification tone rings 3 times in a row.

The text inside the app only shows one text, it only happens in the notification pull down.
