Hello Gearbox Union Nation! Allow me to welcome you to Mobile Mechanic. I plan on this reoccurring once a week. I will be showcasing an Android app once a week. Some of them will be apps that I use and love, some will be apps that are trending in the Google Play store and some will be ones that people suggest I review. I hope you enjoy.
When you receive a text, like I did from Lee here, it arrives as the sender's contact picture, which is dependant on your phone's address book. Meaning, if you don't have a picture assigned to the senders contact card, the default android photo shows. Luckily, I have a flattering picture of Lee saved to his contact card on my phone..
To view the message, you simply press the contact photo that appears in the box. Take note that I have www.gearboxunion.com open in Chrome when the Ninja SMS window appeared. I can then continue to navigate the GBU site while the Ninja SMS chat box floats on the screen.
The only drawback that I can conjure up is how Ninja SMS handles messages from multiple people. For instance, if Lee were to send me a text and then Gregg were to send me one as well, Gregg's SMS box would be over top of Lee's. This can easily be fixed by dragging the boxes away from each other on the screen. However, this can become overwhelming if you are texted by multiple people within the same time frame.
