iOS7 iMessage - what has changed in SMS app ?

Messages or texts are one of the most used application in any mobile phone. Apple iMessage was introduced two years back, which is the new beginning for a iMessage which is a combination of SMS and instant messaging.New shows that messaging app has been revamped and it is quite different than the previous version - iOS6. Let's have a look at what has been changed in ios7 SMS application?


Looks - a simple blue and white interface

Apple believes in simplicity and we have used white and blue combination for messages application. Green - white combination indicates IM, whereas blue- white combination represents normal text SMS. The UI is pretty amazing and there are lots of small features which have been included in the app.

The basic functionality of the application remains the same and their small change for the send button. The button carries Gray theme which is different from its previous version. the shortcuts are same.

  • Swipe to the left - to delete the whole conversation
  • Tap On the status bar - to get to the top of the list
  • Start new conversation- click on the upper right corner
  • Copy/move the message - tap and hold the message

Color fades for older messages

This picture is pretty brilliant. As you keep getting new messages, color of the older messages gets lighter. This looks pretty amazing when you scroll from very old message to the latest message.

So we are going to say that we loved the revamped messaging system. The bubbles are bouncy, they can be pulled and stretched, the bubble color fades as a new message arrives and the best thing is they get delivered.

iOS7 - Do you Hate new Safari icon ?

If you're hating new Safari browser's icon - you're not alone! Right after the preview of all new iOS7,one of the important makeover was new icons and facelift. majority of the people are actually Loving the facelift but have taken issues new icons for Apple iOS7. One of the most hated icon is Safari browser.

it's going to take who sometime for Apple users to get used to the new icons. Safari browser icon has been changed completely and it's difficult for user to easily track the new icon, Safari is one of the stock icons docked at the bottom of of your Apple device and according to the users they are likely to hide the icon just because it didn't like it.

These icons are not as clear and easily recognizable as before - such as the Reminders and Notes icons. The store symbols are too big in their icons, and the Game Center one is just depressing. There is no much change for the very basic usage icons such as call, text, clock and the notes.

Google Nexus 5 Signal drop problems - Emergency calls only mode

Have you observed any Signal issues in your Google Nexus 5? It's turning out to be a very common issue in Nexus 5 and a lot of users have already requested a replacement from Google play store. The symptoms of the network issues are - randomly getting Emergency Calls Only mode, Losing GSM signal after SMS, Losing all the network signal bars twice or thrice a day.

Solution for signal drop - the Emergency calls only mode

Restarting your N5 is the easiest temporary solution, but it can be very annoying for the users. The problem has been observed for worldwide networks such as AT&T & T-Mobile in USA, Rogers and Fido in Canda, O2 and Three in UK as well as TIM in Italy. Most of the users have experienced signal drop after sending a Text SMS. SMS message gets delivered then it loses partial connection to the network. SMS and voice calls fail to function, but data are still accessible.

So far we have found a few workarounds like

1. Go to Settings > Mobile Networks > Network Operators > Choose automatically. This should do the trick.
2. Turning off the LTE helped few. The problem is less likely to occur in 3G devices.

This is definitely a bug in the Nexus 5 and we are hoping that Google could correct it with the next software update. The very first update for Nexus 5 couldn't resolve this problem.
