Version 8.60

Putting up a new version for beta testing this morning. Scheduled messages have gotten a big update on the backend, but hopefully no one notices any differences with that. Mobile data is also automatically enabled if it is off when sending an MMS message and then disabled again when its finished.

Update should be out in the next hour or so.

Any chance of an iOS companion?

Is development for Sliding Messaging still ongoing? The latest update announcement was nearly a year ago.

At least, tell us, will it be a big update? Any material design?

Evidently I spaced when I entered my security PIN twice the same as it is not set to the one I always use for this app (recently downloaded and installed on a new device). Now I cannot get into the app, which is awesome and hands-down my preferred texting tool incidentally. Can I override this somehow? What do you suggest?

Wow thanks Jacob! To top off your great app you are very responsive to
comments ! Thanks mate. I'll make sure my circles know to support your
work! Peace.
(I had thought of doing what you suggest, but thought a backdoor trick was
worth looking for first. .. have a great evening).

Where do saved attachments go?  I click the save button on a displayed image and I can't seem to find it anywhere

Doesn't seem to be.  I tried with a few different MMS messages.  The stock messaging app properly saves to downloads

SlideOver works fine for me but on my old device (running the same version) the bubble would sometimes seem to disappear. I'd go into the settings and see that it changed from 50% (my personal default) down to 1% so even though it was still there (technically) it wasn't showing enough for me to interact with it. Check your settings to see. Maybe a compatibility issue with your device or version of Android you're running, I've seem to have been having some compatibility issues on my new device too that I posted about yesterday in the Bugs section. Hopefully things will get ironed out soon, I've been thinking about giving Evolve a shot (messing app by the same developer) but hate switching from apps I paid for. Hopefully this helps, I know I didn't give an absolute solution but hopefully the dev will see our recent issues and give us some further insight.
 
Has the SlideOver bubble completely stopped showing up for anyone else since the last update?

+H Hill Mine was at 100%, played with various levels and it still shows up completely transparent. Did you force stop it or anything else?

First, great app, lots of options .   But I could use some help with one feature that does not function like I expect it should.

I set up reminders to repeat so I don't miss messages.  Nothing drastic just 5 times a couple of minutes apart.  

The reminders do in fact repeat.  But... they tend to continue to repeat even after I have viewed them either in the app or swiped away the notification.   Now I miss messages because I ignore the notice thinking it is a "false" repeat.

My questions: A) Exactly what causes a message to be viewed?  B) Can this be "fixed" to include viewing the message in the app and/or removing the message notice?

Recently Sliding Messenger has been force closing a lot. I'm not sure if it's because I don't delete any of my SMS/GV messages.

In addition, when I have GV turned on in the settings, if I try to go from the messaging page to the settings page, everything freezes for a good 10 seconds. From there, the app will either black out/FC, or unfreeze and let me scroll through the settings. This issue doesn't present itself if I have GV unlinked/turned off.

Regarding notifications, the vibrate pattern I selected (1 long) is not used. Instead, the app uses the default (2 short). I have it set to vibrate only in vibrate mode and that does work.

When testing the notification, the 1 long pattern is used, but it vibrates when not in vibrate mode.

Seem to be having trouble on lollipop with slide over bubble. The function is fine but I can't actually see it.

I tried clearing app data and that didn't work. Restored my data and at least I know where I put the bubble I just can't see it.

Thoughts?

The only thing this app could completely perfect is if it could play and send gifs. Is there any way it could updated with this ability?

Yeah, I was just thinking that but I've got Switchr and HeadsUp installed so I don't need the floating bubble anymore.

Just purchased a new phone (running 4.4.2) recently and noticed my contacts do not populate anymore as I type in names, just the gray drop down. I've tried clearing the cache/data along with uninstalling/reinstalling but still get the same result. Anyone else experiencing this bug? Any solution?

Friend have a problem with the accents in the application. "Sliding Messiging Pro" by sending an SMS with the characters tend reduces me an SMS and sends it into three parts. There is a solution?

If you enable strip unicode in advanced settings, then it will take out the accents for you when you send and allow for 160 characters. With those accents, SMS only allows for 70 characters.
