WOW, NO ICON, NO OPEN BUTTON!Welcome to Shady SMS 3.0; Shady SMS is by far the best dial to launch secret/hidden messaging application on Android. Once opened there is no icon and no open button!** How to open Shady **Once Shady is opened for the first time it is impossible to open the application via any button whatsoever, you have to dial your secret code to open the application. The default dialing code is 123 and 321 and is as simple as opening your telephone and dialing the code and pressing the call button.** Introduction ** Shady SMS brings you a really cool UI, fast and secret SMS/MMS experience! The entire contact list is super-fied with complete drag and drop capabilities. Contacts with new messages are automatically moved to the top of the list, and tap to change the star color. Yay for gesture detection!Shady is the most powerful secret messaging application on Android and beats the pants off anything that can be made on Blackberry, or iPhone. It is a contact list, and all messages sent to contacts in the list are only visible within Shady. Unlike the stock messager Shady SMS notifications do not show the content. It is discrete, hidden, SECRET. You can configure the Shady notification message to be anything you'd like, so at 2AM when get a message from Bob's BarBQ there will appear to be nothing Shady going on.** The Good Stuff **24/7 email support, firstname.lastname@example.org free messager themes25 Free contact list fonts4 Contact list styles4 Animation settings4 Popup header themes12 free custom notification iconsFull support for 2G/3G/4GPowerful backup and restore feature** New Contact List Sorting Features **Shady SMS has the only complete, gesture detecting, drag and drop contact list of all secret SMS messagers on the Android Market. Truly an awesome feature, and it gives the Android contact list a run for its money.** Notifications Replacement **Shady SMS replaces the stock SMS/MMS notification mechanism. Shady's complete notifications system fully manages all Shady and regular contact SMS/MMS notifications. The stock notifications mechanism is disabled by opening the default messager,and by un-checking the "notifications" checkbox in the settings.** MMS filtering **Shady features the best MMS filter on the Android Market. After your device downloads the MMS attachment Shady will filter it! You logically want to enable "auto download" in your stock messaging application so the filtering process is seamless. Shady handles video, images, and texts flawlessly.** Third Party Messagers **You must remove Chomp, Handcent, and Go SMS to receive technical support; it is preferred to use Shady ONLY with the stock/default messager that comes with your phone.** Dialer Bug **Dialer is a bug in the OS on your model phone. It's not something to fix in Shady's code. You can use a dialer replacement app as a solution. Go Contacts is a free dialer application available on the Android Market, and is an excellent solution.** Notes **Go Dialer must have the Call Confirm setting disabled.MIUI roms must enable "Allow 3rd party apps to monitor phone app" in the call settings menu.Are you a Sprint user who ported to Google voice? Not good. You'll need to uninstall Google Voice or disable notifications!** Market Download History ** Use of App Locker 2 is officially recommended to lock down the Android Market downloads tab. Its an ingenious solution because apps cannot be removed from the downloads tab.** Affiliation **Shady SMS is not affiliated with Blackbook, SPC, Blacklist, Redlist, My Calculator, Private SMS/MMS Box, Fox Private Message, Horizon, Locky, Hide Text & Call logs, Conspirator, or CATE Call and Text Eraser.Follow Shady on Facebook.Recent changes:Fixed regular contact MMS notifications to open the correct thread in the stock messagerContent rating: Everyone
