Shady SMS 2.0 has reached it’s 100′th update! Shady SMS 1.0 had over 550 updates. Thats alot of updates! I’ll admit that many of the updates in the original version were because I was going through an Android learning experience. If I started the project now it would have made much more progress, much faster, in less updates. In either case Shady SMS 2.0 is where it is today, and it’s better than ever. With awesome stability, predictable functionality, and supremely reliable filtering welcome to the new Shady SMS.
Shady SMS 2.0 has countless new features compared to the original version. My most liked features include:
- Sent and received notifications
- MMS image, video, and text filtering
- The 24 customizable notification icons
- The awesome super backup and restore feature
- The 4 different styles to the contact list, personally I use the medium thumbnail mode
- The new Sensation theme for the messager
Overall there are way to many feature in total for me to go through all of them in a single post. Shady turned into a sophisticated messaging machine. When I first started coding Shady I would have never imagined it would have turned into such a complicated project, but users kept emailing asking for new features; and I kept adding them.
One of the most common requested features is sorting of the contact list. Unfortunately it won’t be possible in the current version for countless reason. To be brief I will have to recode the entire data storage mechanism in order to achieve the feature. When I think about releasing Shady SMS 3.0 sorting of the contact list is one big motivator.
Currently Shady is #11 is the Social category top paid apps list. It has been fluctuating between #10 and #11 for the past couple of months, but it looks like its staying at the top I thank all my loyal customers that have the patience to email me and ask for support rather than just ignorantly rant in the comments. Your intelligent decision to prose questions and implement troubleshooting to achieve results has made Shady an extremely successful application. I guarantee that 9/10 issues are already discussed in the Shady Market Description, but definitely click the new help menu in Shady! The new help menu detects if Go SMS, Chomp, Handcent, ATK, and Android Booster are installed and provides instructions/recommendations accordingly. It is now a smart help menu. It gets straight to the point and does not show information unless needed.
Between the help menu, the Market Description, and my email based technical support Shady is guaranteed to be an effective secret/hidden messaging application that will meet or exceed your expectations!
