Back in the days, getting SMS messages on a popup screen, with quick reply option was one of my favorite features on Android. The Handcent app enabled it for me. But of course, everything that is a pop-up, and appears unapologetically to your eyes, has to annoy you at some point. But then, Facebook messenger came with this cool new bubbles feature that gets the job done quickly through overlay screens, and is a lot less intrusive than popups.
Developer Stallware has just released an app to get you the same experience for your SMS needs. Dashdow SMS shows bubbles for new messages along with a quick reply function as an overlay on your phone’s screen, it’s floating and works great when having a conversation while multitasking on your phone
