Fantastic. Tried everything to get rid of unread text message number on messaging app but nothing worked. Used "Okay Google" to find offending message which did not show up in my messages but still couldn't get rid of it. Five seconds with this app and it was gone. Well worth the voluntary donation I gave after using it.
Helped my problem Was traveling and could not open new texts. When I got home, all the unread texts popped up in the wrong dates so I could not find them to remove the text notification on the app icon. This helped me find those texts so I could open them and get rid of the unread number. Thanks!
Worked perfectly on droid Maxx. App first asked to become default SMS. Reported no unread messages. As recommended, chose to try anyway. Spinning circle for 1 min. Then app very politely offered to restore default messaging app. Problem solved. Tomorrow morning's coffee is on me!
Nexus 6P / Nova Prime launcher / Tesla Unread Count This worked exactly as advertised. It asked to become my default SMS app, "Processed" for about a minute, and then asked to change default back to Messenger. Couldn't have been easier.
So fast and easy! I found this app on an android forum after having a text notification for weeks. I had no new texts, but it continued to say I had 3 unread. Anyway, this app solved the problem in about a minute. I was happy to donate a few bucks. Thank you!
Very specific app and it does exactly what it says on the tin. My Nova Launcher was reporting 2 unread text messages but I couldn't see them. I ran this app and it showed them from about 4 months ago and marked them as read. Problem solved.
