I was intending to release SMSView on the app store, but the latest Android release has added a message viewer to the lock screen.
After seeing Catchphrase reached the number 1 spot on the iTunes store I became disillusioned by the horror system in place that something rated 1 star could be at number 1. So I decided to switch over to Android.
However one annoying factor of this is there is nothing for the lock screen to show my last text message received like on iOS. After checking the store, a lot of applications asked for permissions which I was comfortable for them to have, and some asked for permissions I don’t see why they should have. So I decided to build something myself that I could trust.
The SDK was simple to use, and I managed to knock this out in an evening.
