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.
