Roger, did you say that your custom sms tone worked for this app?

It wasn't a custom tone, gets.....it's one of the canned tones that came with the device, but yes, my profile settings (including the Bellshare apps) seemed to work with this app.

I'm really disappointed with this app so far. I guess I should have tried it before I bought it but I only noticed it had been released on the last day of the 50% discount.
So far new text messages I send to contacts are not delivered. If I get a text from someone and respond those seem to be going through. I set up the firewall as directed and set all permissions to allow. I tried several battery pulls and still no good. I have emailed empower support and am waiting for a reply but thought maybe someone here could help.
I had also hoped that the app would be integrated with the native SMS function such as selecting compose SMS text from the email menu would open the app.
Anyone have any ideas why my new texts are not getting to the recipient?

They are not testing anymore. You can buy the app here, but with the luck I am having with it I wouldn't.

Now I just have to get used to opening this app instead of my inbox to use SMS.

The problem I have is that I use TetherBerry on my laptop a lot at work, which can't be run with the firewall enabled.
I did, however just set up a modem and can tether that way. The only thing I don't like about tethering that way is that with TetherBerry I can see how much data I'm using.

i'm sorry if this has already been commented as 6 pages is a little long and I admit I'm a bit lazy but...
is this app still relevant seeing 5.0+ now has threaded sms right out of the box?

^^^ LOL! Well, for those of us using older devices it is.

I want to thank Ani for the update. This is almost perfect for me now. My alerts are now customized.
