New... iSMS threaded texts beta v1.09
4 Attachment(s)
A "must have" app for me is the iPhone like, threaded text of iSMS (formerly Free-iSMS).

It simply is the best text app I've come across and integrates extremely well into the S60v5 OS.

It can be installed on C:, E: or F: equally as well.

You can receive notifications of texts in different ways.

Traditional Nokia style

iPhone style

Open direct to text.

It handles both SMS and MMS and allows you to send and receive without having to open the built-in Messaging prog.

You can also import/export all or selected texts for safe keeping or back-up.

It installs at 444kb and uses 0.2 - 0.3MB of RAM when running.

You can download iSMS v1.09 build 100703 direct from the Chinese developers site (use Google translate) for free but it requires self signing.

If you have a previous version, this should be uninstalled.

After installation, allow iSMS to connect to developers site for a registration code. I do not know how long this code is valid for as it shows no expiry date.

Once entered you should restart your phone and sync your messages on iSMS.

You can then set about configuring it to your requirements, such as, notification method, font size, background, etc:

IMHO, this is what Nokia should be offering in new firmware as standard as they have piddled around with something similar in beta labs, called Conversation, and then abandoned for the S60v3.

That is the latest official release available.

As you can see from my iSMS screenshot, the updates in the beta version appear to be minor.

this functionality is built in to the Satio (an presumably Vivaz/pro) sms client.

its nice but I only use it occasionally.

I use threaded SMS all the time. If you have frequent exchanges of texts with a few people, it helps a lot in keeping track of conversations.

I've just installed this beta and within seconds I find myself wanting to go back to v1.08.

I find that I can't scroll down past any thread of texts I've received. I synchronised the app with my texts and tried to scroll down through the list. As I try to scroll, it highlights whatever I've touched and, when that highlighted item reaches the top of the screen, the list sort of judders and stops with this item at the top.

Has anyone else noticed this? v1.08 never did this.

[EDIT] I've solved the problem by disabling "Show msg summary". Now, come to think of it, I didn't have v1.08 set up with that enabled anyway, so I'm not sure now whether that one had the same problem.

how can i get my certificate? to sign this??

There's a new version out... v1.10!

I've just signed and installed it now and just about to have a play with it.

First impressions: kinetic scrolling is much smoother, avatars next to texts in conversations (not sure if this was already in v1.09 though), new Gravity style theme (optional), and smiley support has been added.
