It's fantastic Since my Samsung Galaxy S3 updated to lollipop I'm having the same problem that a lot of people are having. The difference is I don't blame the developer who can't do anything regarding limitations set by Google. This is an absolutely fantastic application and continue to use it because it's the best I've found. Love that pop up works over my lock screen, quick reply is convenient. It sucks that the application won't mark my sms as read but once again blame google. Thank you love this app.
I used to love this app... Now there is no contact for the devs, and neither contact specific notifications, nor the Holo colors are working. Will update review as soon as these get solved. Glowfly has been my absolute favorite messaging app, because having the ability to color code my contacts is indispensable. Galaxy S5; it doesn't look like I'm the only person having an issue. Please come back, guys.
The Best! This is a great alternative to the native SMS notifications. I like the fact that it will still notify you when you shut off the messaging app notifications. A lot of the alternative apps won't pop up if you turn the native notifications off and therefore you get two notifications. What's the point of that? The only wishlist item I would want to this app is to clear the number count in the native app when you dismiss a message from Glowfly. I'm not sure if that is possible, but would be really nice! Update: Saw a developer response to the number count. Apparently this is a Samsung native app limitation. I Switch the icon for the app so it won't display the number count and it work perfectly. Nicely done Glowfly!
Great app + Customer service Not only is this app a flawless execution of what it sets out to do; but, the money from the app goes to a good cause. This makes it a much easier purchase. Also the customer service is better then any other app I've ever paid for. I was having some user error related issues and in less than twelve hours they emailed me back with a solution. This app its just wonderful and the team that developed it is equally as wonderful. Would definitely recommend and would have no problem purchasing from in the future.
Themes aren't working.. I've had this app on my old Samsung phone and it worked great. I put it on the phone I have now and the themes aren't working.? All the colors become grey. For example dark halo yellow will come out black with a grey bar on the top rather than yellow. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling both theme apps as well as this one and still the same result. Any advice.?
Reply button does not work. This is a great app except for one fatal flaw: the popup reply button for the native messaging app does not work. Not for me at least (I'm on a samsung galaxy nexus with jellybean). I prefer the native app to the quick reply because I like to be able to read the message I just received while typing my response. This is one of the few apps that I have actually spent money on, so I would appreciate it very much if you (the developers) would fix this.
