Version 3.3.0

New version of EvolveSMS coming out to all beta users soon, then the rest of my users shortly after that assuming everything goes smoothly.

Changelog:
- Material design inspired attach menu
- Material design inspired search bar
- UI improvements for Lollipop users
- Other small bug fixes

Been a while since the last update, sorry about that! Been busy with my summer job and other things. Enjoy the update when you get it, should be out in the next few hours on the play store.

Lots more planned for the future, so stay tuned!

Update: 3.3.0 is now rolling out to all users, enjoy!

Evolve does no preprocessing of messages. That is the most that can be done. You can disable receiving messages from unknown numbers in blacklist settings and they would never be received then.

New here but have been using app for 6 months or so. Love it. I have just recently noticed that parts of conversations are disappearing. I do not archive or have delete old messages turned on. What is making parts of conversations just disappear? (Droid Turbo- lollipop)

I just found out about Evolvesms, and I love it already! Quick reply, custom backgrounds (Finally found it after trying out other messaging apps that don't allow custom backgrounds.), and dark themes. There's more to Evolvesms that I have yet to discover. Thank you, dev, for the best SMS app ever!

What about having the ability to 'pin' certain people to the top of the discussion list?
And then the list will line up according to activity below them...

Back button to open conversation list from a message thread would be awesome. I haven't seen this option, but if it's there, someone please point me to it. I know many people want the back button to exit the app, but from force of habit I expect it to bring me back to the conversation list. Thanks! Awesome SMS app discovered thru Yappy.

Enabling open conversation list at start does this.

When I attach a picture that is larger than 9 megapixels the app does not show a preview of the picture. If I press the rotate button then the preview appears. Can someone else confirm this phenomenon?

Ok, a little question. Sometimes, when I send an sms to my gf, it doesn't always deliver even when the phone is on and in coverage. And then days later, it delivers all of the messages.

She is on a diff network to me and is the only contact that I have this issue with. It happens with other apps too, such as textra but never with hangouts.

Any idea what the issue could be??

Latest beta seems to be more stable less crashes and generally better performance. Good work +Jacob Klinker​ can see a lot has gone into making the app better

I appreciate it, it just gets to be a lot of tweets at me throughout the day when I'm trying to work and not use Twitter or Google+

Fyi
Attackers need only send a video through a text messaging app to compromise your phone.

Evolve does not preprocess anything for you.

Is there something I can do to be able to download MMS when WiFi is on?

I'm using the Moto X 2014 on T-Mobile. I can easily send out MMS but downloading/receiving them doesn't work. Any suggestions at this point?

I have been a beta tester for a while but didn't get the beta show up in the play store could this be because the app wasn't installed in the device +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

Is it Android that requires the Stage Fright patch - or Individual applications - ie: Evolve?
Apps such as Whatsapp are not believed to be vulnerable to Stage Fright bug

OK. I just like to know when to expect it and when not.

Does anyone know if the Messenger theme gives any indication of delivery status? If so, I can't discern it. It's rather frustrating that all themes handle this differently because there isn't a standard legend for themes so there isn't an easy way to figure out what the message status is when you change themes.

It appears that Google voice actions has added the ability to send messages via a specific app. It reportedly allows you to say "Ok Google, send a WhatsApp message to Joe."  Will EvolveSMS be able to be used in this way now?

Um I was wondering if I could get my hands on a developer build to start adding new features and creating wonderful things for the app... Have lots of ideas to implement into the app!

Uh well if that's all you have that's "development" level, then yeah... I was thinking you had something that could just move stuff around and change formats, basically a UI edit tool... I had some ideas that I thought would make the app better. I will tell you I'm not trying to cause any harm or anything if that's your concern... Just thinking I could show you some of my ideas.
