HTC Messaging Client v1.8 Available

HTC Messaging Client v1.8 Available

The messaging client which HTC has integrated into newer releases of the Sense interface has long been infamous for its many bugs, its unbearable slowness, and its lack of unique features.

XDA member G-ThGraf has discovered that the newest version, hot off the latest Sense update, fixes all of these problems. Version 1.8 of HTC’s Messaging Client for Pocket PC seems to have no lag when sending, receiving or composing messages on top of its increased stability. What’s more, the newest release includes a ‘Secure Box’ feature, which allows you to quickly file away your most sensitive messages in a password-protected folder. An impressed user of the new client has made this quick video to illustrate its improvements in performance.

G-ThGraf has kindly consolidated the update into a .cab, which is available in the application thread. The update is designed for use on the HD2 but may not work with all ROMs.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.
