    Used to be NinjaSMS. Definitely a good brand switching exercise. Looks professional and refined with heaps of customization options.

    This is my default messaging app and until this breaks or something better comes out it will keep on using this as default. Its simple, easy to use & looks great.

    This messaging app is simply gorgeous and useful. Just like the facebook chatheads, it creates a pop-up when you have a message. You can then converse with anyone with the floating messaging client. If floaters are not your type, you can still use the standard app sms layout in ninja. Comes with 12 themes

*** NOTICE: Go SMS Pro, Handcent SMS and MySMS users must DISABLE those apps OR make sure you install HoverChat before those other apps (you might need to uninstall them then re-install if you already have them on your phone). These apps fight with HoverChat for priority to receive messages from the system. If you do not want to disable them, please do not download HoverChat and give a low rating ***

We'd like to hear from you. Email us features you'd like to see in upcoming releases.

We respect your privacy. These are the permissions requested by the app and an explanation why we are asking you for them:

- Reading/Editing/Sending Messages: We use this to help you read and reply to SMS messages from within the popup windows

- Reading your contacts: This is to provide you full control to select which contacts you want the popup windows to show up for

- Drawing over apps: We use this permission to display the popup window hovering over your apps. We also give you permission to minimize or close it at any time.

- Vibrate permission: To notify you of new incoming messages depending on your phone's sound profile


** NOTE ** HoverChat uses your phone carrier's normal SMS plan to send messages. Check with your phone carrier for their price offerings
