Extreme Text

Spice up your SMS messages

When I first got my mobile phone I really enjoyed being able to send text messages to everyone informing them of what I was doing whether I was at work, on the bus or in the bathroom. Like many things fun soon melted into humdrum, and I grew fed up with the medium. However, since installing Extreme Text my outlook on text messaging has changed considerably. View full description

When I first got my mobile phone I really enjoyed being able to send text messages to everyone informing them of what I was doing whether I was at work, on the bus or in the bathroom. Like many things fun soon melted into humdrum, and I grew fed up with the medium. However, since installing Extreme Text my outlook on text messaging has changed considerably.

This is an interesting alternative to the SMS manager, offering a series of innovations based largely on IM clients. As with these PC-based messengers, Extreme Text lets you apply photos of your contacts to your SMS messages, apply amusing emoticons, and include clickable web links in your texts. There are a number of neat productivity enhancements too, including auto-capitalisation and the ability to apply user-defined text.

On the surface, stuff like IM-style emoticons and coloured themes may seem a little teenage in their appeal, but Extreme Text actually offers a powerful solution for organising and enriching your SMS messages.

Extreme Text is the premier Threaded SMS Texting application. It allows you to view all of your Texts as separate conversations for each contact you SMS, much like an Instant Message Conversation. It also adds great features including emoticons, following links in the text, User Defined Text Support, Photo Contact Support, and more.

And it works with your regular WM databases so all your current messages will be included and you can switch back to the regular Text program at any time without losing a message. Here are some of the main features of Extreme Text:

  • Threaded text conversations
  • Photo contact support
  • Emoticons
  • Follow links in text
  • Insert user-defined text
  • Works with existing Windows Mobile databases
  • Auto-capitalize
  • Color themes
  • Small footprint
