Well, with this small app you can enjoy that feature again.
Now, you can claim that you did receive the SMS, haven't yet read it. ;-)
A note about the permissions used by this app:
Read & write SMS: To mark them as read/unread.
Read contacts: To convert the sender numbers to names, in the way you have saved to your address book.
Notes for reviewers:
I have tested the app to be working on my phone.
1. However, there may be cases, when the app crashes on some other hardware.
In such a case, (before down-rating the app), please "report" the crash to google, so that I can try to rectify the issue.
2. This app, "SMS read/unread", uses the default android database used for storing the SMSes, to mark the SMS as read/unread. Some messaging apps (e.g. Google hangout) do NOT use this default database, but they use their own copy of that database to fetch these SMSes. They may have their own reasons for doing it. Hence, if your messaging app is one of such apps like hangout, then you will not see updated read/unread status in your app. However, the messaging apps, which are provided by the phone manufacturer, *usually* use the default android database.
I had experimented that the SMS read/unread status does show changed in my default messaging app. However it remains unchanged as seen in google hangout, whether I mark the message as read from this app, or from my phone's messaging app.
Unfortunately, there is nothing much I can do about this issue. Sorry about that.
Thanks for trying.

If you are willing to write down a text message with your mobile phone but you're driving, or you're simply too lazy to use your keyboard, that's your app!!! Select the contact from your address book, then speak up to your smartphone and send your message.
With this application you can also sends an automatic response when a text message is received. Whether you're meeting, you're driving or you're just lazy to respond to the sms... This application will respond automatically. Remember that texting while driving is dangerous, leaving active this application while driving the phone will answer automatically to incoming messages, but if you're really curious you just enable automatic reading of messages and the application will read aloud the message received . The use of automated response costs as an ordinary text message on your telephone company. Turn off when not needed.
Remember that using the phone in the car is dangerous for you and for others, always uses the mode "drive" or park and use the phone.
The ultimate hands free texting utility for driving.
Have your incoming text messages read out to you and reply, call or compose messages, hands free. This is the gold standard of hands free texting! This is your My Motospeak replacement. Our goal is to promote safe driving so you can safely text and drive.
COMPOSE / CALL / REPLY and SEND text messages (SMS text) by using voice commands. Have your text messages read aloud (but only when you tell them to with a voice command). When replying or composing text messages (SMS text) you will have the ability to hear a preview and confirm your text before saying Send Text...all hands-free! Never have your incoming text messages read aloud in a meeting with Speak Drive Text since it will wait for you to tell it to read the text out loud. Of course, there is a setting that will allow this if you choose.
HOTWORD DETECTION FEATURE (English Only): Command your phone to wake up and send texts to someone, or call! Simply say the hotword and Text Aloud launches. This works like "OK, Google" only our feature works while the screen is off. Very minimal battery drain as well! Give it a try.
This is simply the best and most unique text message reader on the market today!
Speak Drive Text also works great with MOST Bluetooth devices.
Example: you get an incoming text message (SMS text), you then provide the correct voice command ("Read Message") and the app will read the text message aloud. If no voice command is given then nothing is read. Once the text message (SMS) is read, you then have the opportunity to voice your reply or even call the sender, all while being completely HANDS-FREE! Have your phone talk to you like Jarvis from Ironman. This app allows you to have full text message conversations while being hands free and eyes free.
There is also an auto-reply functionality. Turn on the predefined auto replies or even customize your own auto reply for when you can't be bothered.

Some cell phone carriers charge $30 or more to provide a print out of your texts. Download this app and save yourself a lot of money and a lot of hassle.
On some very select phones, this app does not support the text in Multi-Media Messaging ( known as MMS ) example : picture messages. And some text messaging apps convert long SMS into MMS. Most phones are supported and if supported, only the text from the MMS messages will be included. The pictures cannot be included in the email because multiple pictures quickly exceeds the email size limitation.
Some apps that email each text, require you to enter your email address and password. That is a security risk. Do not give out your password to anyone! This app does NOT require you to enter your email address and password, so your privacy is maintained. This app does not automatically email each text as they are received. That would be hundreds or thousands of emails a day for many people.
This app does NOT delete or modify any of your text messages. Before you delete your texts, make sure you have received them in the email or that they have been properly uploaded.
We also want to thank all the very nice people that have taken the time to let us know how the app has helped you in your lives. We very much appreciate the positive feedback and we are fortunate to have many very wonderful customers.
Thank you for your time and have a wonderful day!
