YAATA isn’t Just Another Android Texting App

Although our mobile devices today are capable of executing nearly every task we normally perform on their full size PC counterparts, there are certain core communication tasks that seem to make up the bulk of what we do with our smartphones. These activities include Email, phone calls, and last but not least, text messaging. As such, there are hundreds or thousands of good text messaging apps available on Android, with many offering elaborate features such as integration with your desktop computer and so on.

XDA Senior Member kajozord recently created Yet Another Android Texting Application, and he named it appropriately as such. However, YAATA isn’t just another Android texting app. It offers quite a bit of added functionality that you will have trouble finding in other solutions, especially if you’re looking for one app that has all of them. For example, it allows you to customize when notifications are shown depending on certain variables such as screen being on, vibration being off, or volume messings. You’re also able to schedule text messages, convert long SMS messages to MMS, receive delivery reports, quick compose from your status bar, auto forward and respond, and much more.

Although YAATA is another entrant in the sea of already great text messaging apps, it offers quite a bit of added functionality that sets it apart from all the rest and makes it a dream for the texting power user. Head over to the YAATA application thread to get started.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
