If you’re one of those people who simply aren’t satisfied with the stock SMS application on your device then theres a good chance you’ve tried Handcent as an alternative. Of all the third party SMS applications available Handcent certainly seems to be one of the most customisable and intuitive.
Version 4.0 of this incredibly popular application has been in private beta for a while but now it’s available to the public here on XDA Developers. This is the seventh beta build and there are still a few minor bugs to be ironed out but I’m sure that won’t stop many of you from taking this new version for a spin.
New features include;
- Handcent Talk – Allows you to bind your phone number and send text messages for free using the Handcent network.
- Greater customization
- Improved compatibility with iOS messaging from iPhones
- Full ICS Support
- New Widget
- Doesn’t enter batch mode correctly.
- Some modded users may experience theme compatibility issues when using themes of white text on dark backgrounds.
