SMS Pop Up App Review

I’ll be the first to admit, I am NOT the master of the text message. Although I send and receive them daily, send me more than about two in a row, and your phone will be ringing with me on the other end.

And no matter how much screen real estate you have, it always seems that manufacturers pick the smallest possible fonts to use in the SMS app. This is fine for the eagle eyed Twentysomethings, but if you’re on the downhill side of the big 4-0, sometimes you need just a little more help.


Enter SMS Pop Up, an app that gives you a nice, big popup window that appears on your screen every time you have an incoming message. Screenshot of SMS Pop Up

The text is large, clear, and displays as white on a solid black background, which makes it much easier to read. If you need extra help, a quick trip to the setup menu lets you custom-configure the large buttons at the bottom of the window. One of the choices is Text-To-Speech, which will read the incoming message to you when you press the button.

The app is great for anyone who has a hard time seeing the text in a standard Android SMS menu, and is free in the Android Market (or Google Play, as it’s called now).

Pros:Easy to set up and use, very stable, easily customizable, good for middle-aged to “senior” users, free.

Cons: Replies are typed in standard, hard-to-read Android SMS default program.
