SMS Pop-Up is a handy utility for the Android platform that allows you to get more information about your text messages than what you normally receive from the standard interface.
When you install this app it automatically turns itself on, so you’ll want to open it up and check out the settings before you let it do its thing. The settings tab isn’t really robust, but it will allow you to turn on the SMS pop-up which is the main feature of this app. Basically, this app allows you to see the text message on the screen as opposed to just a tiny notification in the notification area.
In the setting area you can change the screen timeout as the screen does turn on when you receive a new message. If you’re worried about your privacy, you can set it to hide the contents of the message until you’ve unlocked your phone. You can even customize it to blur the background for a nice effect when you receive a new message.
SMS Pop-Up is definitely a handy app that adds another great feature to the Android platform. Now you don’t have to load up the text message to read what it says as it’s displayed directly on your device. Definitely check this app out.
