ThreadSMS – Review

My Nokia doesn’t have threaded SMS view – and its very annoying. So, after searching about for a suitable application for this, I came across ThreadSMS by eHandySoft (http://ehandysoft.com/threadsms.htm)

Functionality:

Quick to load, and quick to navigate. On my N97 mini the scrolling was very smooth and precise. The threads are loaded with contact pictures next to the corresponding people (if you have contact pictures assigned). Clicking on a thread will open it up in a sort of bubble outline. Here you can read the flow of the thread easily.

If you want to reply, you have to click on a message, and then a text entry box appears. It would seem better to me to have the box always there, or at least an option to choose.

There’s even a method of locking your SMS so that prying eyes cannot view them (if you’re upto no good)

If you regularly receive spam SMS messages, then you can filter these out, and silence them. Another great idea.

Looks:

I looks very slick. There are around 7 bubble themes you can choose, that changes the design of the thread view.

The different threads are grouped by sender, so in the main window you get a list of your contacts with their little pictures, ordered by the most recent first. Logically.

Overall:

A good bit of software that expands the Nokia’s limited SMS functionality.
