    Pretty much the same thing as Launcher Pro, transparents icons, multiple docks, there's no option to actually change the transitions between switching apps, unread counts for email, sms and calls. Gestures, themes, app drawer settings and more, but i hope to make a video for you guys on this soon so you can actually see it in action

    Personally, I think that's a good idea, because I've been wondering exactly why it's so special.

    Hm. I'm trying Go right now and I do love the way it looks. But I keep trying to send progressively smaller jpegs and none of them are going through. I may need to switch back to Handcent.

    I am a new transfer from Iphone 3 and 4 to the inspire. I tried Handcent and it was ok, but then i tried go sms and i loved it even more. Specially since it has the chat layout like the iphone, it made the transfer feel easier.

    I would definitely give go sms a try

    I prefer SwiftKey. It goes through your messages and predicts your next word. Its like it knows what your thinking. No lag on the device either.

    Definitely recommend purchasing it.

    Swift key is not a replacement sms app It is a replacement keyboard

    If I had to choose I would pick handcent it is hands down the best... But since I rooted my phone and am running nightlies I don't have a choice but to use their Built in sms app.. It's the gingerbread app and it gets the job done...

    Handcent rocks. I like the way I can customize each person's page. Don't have to look at the same old screen every time i text. Different color icons in notification bar so I can tell at a glance who texted me.

    Open your Messaging app:
    Settings->Notifications->Make sure it's unchecked

    I've tried the native app, Handcent, Chomp and GO. I'd have to cast my vote for GO hands down.

    I tried go sms a while ago and just wasn't having fun with it. Went back to handcent for while but it eventually dogged out and got really slow on me. Figured I try go sms again and overall I'd say they definitely make some nice improvements. The thing that I've noticed however is the notification bar never seems to be correct on my installation for some reason. I'll get something from my wife and it will show something from twitter on the notification bar. Often the notification color icon is incorrect. I'm assuming this user kind of related to my installation because I'm sure other people would be complaining at this point. I may try a reinstall to see if things clear up.

    I've tried using Go SMS, its a great messaging application, has a lot of features, a lot of themes to choose from but it uses alot of RAM on my phone so I went back using Handcent for that matter.. This two apps are both great on their own rights, I love Handcent because there's an option where you can display your contact's pic and yours in the threaded conversation so it appears to be like a comic style conversation...what I love in Go SMS is that it has a function where you can schedule your SMS to be sent.. But I've chosen Handsent on my vote. there you go!

    Used handcent almost as soon as I got my optmius s. I customized the hell out of it and I thought it was really bad ***. But then I tried go sms earlier this week and handcent is off my phone lol. Go sms is so much fast than handcent. I just wish I could find some font packs for go sms
