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!
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.
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.
Used to mark restored SMS I switched phones and imported messages which all appeared as unread. Very annoying but this fixed it within seconds!
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!
Does exactly what it says on the tin! Supposedly had 11 unread SMS according to Chomp SMS, but none visible in the inbox. Ran this app and it's sorted.
