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.
Description & Features from the developer:

I once replied to an SMS from by boss without knowing it because he NEVER texted me! I thought I was sending an SMS to my wife telling her how a “pain” I thought he was, but instead I hit the “reply” and wrote the thing. Luckily for me I had put an emoticon and he thought I was joking! Little did he know….. !

My son and I were texting back and forth and he was also texting to his girlfriend. Well, he replied to me with what he meant to send to his girlfriend and we got a big laugh about it for a while (he and I are very close so he wasn’t too embarassed about it)
I would really like to win this app it sounds great!!September 4, 2009 at 5:26 PM #180592
This would make my life so much easier with fewer mistaks! I was texting with my brother and next think I know my mother replys yelling at me for what I texted her…I unknowlingly sent the text to her because I mistaken her 1st as from my brother so My reply was “YOu’re NOT my parent you can’t tell me what to do and not to do!!!”
It took me a week or so to fix that situation!!!

I’m just an old man that needs all the help he can get…September 4, 2009 at 5:31 PM #180595
Id love to have a copy of this. I paid for it several months ago then my BB crashed and lost everything. I didnt think I would be able to get it back cuz I lost all the info, so just decided to put up with the plain jane version from Blackberry. I love the looks of it now that I have seen it again. Now I really want it back.
ThanksSeptember 4, 2009 at 5:32 PM #180596
