Since the beta stages Empower SMS viewer has been one of my favorite 3rd party apps to use. Empower SMS viewer is another way to give your SMS a little bit of your own style by allowing you to customize the appearance of your SMS screen. This application lets you set your own background, adjust font styles, and if you have a picture set for you contacts it displays that as well. One of my favorite is how it displays smiley faces, and the fact that you can change the display color of incoming messages and the messages you send is another plus for me and I also like the option to hit enter to send messages.
NOTE: One thing that users wanted was a fully integrated grouping of SMS right now the application only shows SMS in a threaded manner, Ani let me know that this feature is on the works and an upgrade will be available soon that will include grouping of SMS.
