Want some iOS kinda tweaks for messaging on your android? Some of your might know bitesms for iOS where we can receive full popup display of the text message along with the buttons for quick reply, delete, and whatever else. This thing on Android wasn’t there until we got Handcent SMS. Handcent SMS is a powerful tool for SMS/MMS for Android with some really cool customization and is the best replacement for the stock messaging app.
Apart from the basic SMS/MMS support it also provides security options to encrypt individual or all of the messages in your inbox. It supports more than 20 languages, extends Android’s group SMS limitations of 100 messages per hour up to 1,100 messages per hour, and has an optional popup notification for quick access which can be customized to a great extent. Numerous themes and layouts are available no matter if you use HTC sense, Motorola’s Blur, or even iOS. It also has plugins for additional functionality like Handcent’s Contact Locator plugin, which helps you quickly locate your friends using GPS.
