And another update for hello. It's still the white (or black, if you use the night mode) minimal app that I knew and loved, and it now comes with a nifty photo-slash-gif sending thingy that's pretty cute. The app doesn't look that great on my tiny screen as the words tend to get smushed, but hello's still one of my favourite texting apps.

This is a way better alternative than the original sms app on my Galaxy S3. Even if my phone is laggy, going through my sms is fast and intuitive here. The option to mark a message as read directly on the notification bar, without having to actually open the sms, is priceless.
