    Is there any app, that maybe is a replacement for stock text messaging, that would allow text messages to pop up on top of other open applications? I don't want to replace the entire launcher, maybe just add this capability in to the standard text messaging app or replace that app.

    Potential Constraints: Not rooted. Not going to.

    Any thoughts?

    Yes. Never "uninstall" the base sms app. If you use a third party app, just turn off notifications in "original" app, or you will get 2 notifications. On each you uninstall the 3rd party app, original resumes.

    LOL. I'm around. Still rehabbing Angie (corgi with the back problem), have $15M in active research projects I'm leading, plus work efforts on another $5M as technical staff. Just not a lot of free time.

    My wife liked Textra so much from looking at it on mine that she immediately installed it on her S5 and today we installed the "emoji" pack because you can never have enough icons to play with <G>

    I do. Took me forever this morning to figure out how to send to multiple recipients at once. Figured it out tho. Now seems simple, but the first several attempts, didn't notice that the person icon had changed to a checkmark and had to hit that as an "ok, send to these"

    The double hit on the trash can was a bit counter-intuitive at first as well, but the double protection for that is great. and a tap tap is no big deal obviously.

    thanks again!
