    Okay, yesterday I switched to the Verizon Messages that on my SGN.IV to see how it fares. Quite "customizable" with the colors and such on this. There is something I noticed when deleting messages though. There's a green Android that flashes. Anyone here seen that?

    I tried to take a shot with my camera but it's too fast to do so. Anyway, I was just curious to know if any of you that use VM have seen the green Android flash when deleting messages. That's all.

    I just tried deleting a message in Message+ (Verizon Messages) and I didn't see a green Android flash.

    I'll try to replicate it when I get home and see if I can "capture" the image photographically.

    Okay, I'm not Videographer/VideoEditor but here's the best I could capture that shows the Green Android Flash:

    I find it interesting and hope it's not a "bad bug" or whatnot. Maybe, possibly nothing to worry about on my end?

    Maybe it has something to do with colors used to customize or some of the other things. Maybe change up some thing, including the chat bubble and colors and see if it still happens.

    I reset to default and it still flashes. I also changed the background/wall color, chat bubble shape and color. The Delete Flash of Green Android still displays itself. Other than that, I don't notice any problem with VzW Messages. In fact it works fast and fine.

    Not sure about that.

    I also discovered this app plays a notification if the convo is open and it also works on non-Verizon phones and carriers.

    No orange
    Plays notifications when open
    Links and pictures are easy to find.

    Seems like a great app so far.

    Really liking the Verizon Messages so far. I've also noticed what you stated above. Another thing I found interesting is that since I've turned the Vzw.Mesa on yesterday, all of my messages since acquiring the SGN.IV came on through to the VzW.Mesa including the ones I've long deleted from Hangouts and Google Messenger.

    I never used Hangouts or Google, just the Samsung stock app.

    For me, I'll stay with the VzW Messages and "put to rest" the others. But what's interesting with the popular messaging apps is I can move around, resize, hide/display the icon/label, while the VzW.Mesa I cannot hide the label(?) Both icon and label stays as is. I personally prefer non-labeled icons. That's all.

    You mean not having the pictures of the person you are having the convo with showing?

    Here's what I'm trying to relay with Icons (Hangouts, Google Messenger, and Verizon Messages depicted with and without Labels:

    Oh, mine is at the bottom, so no label. The launcher won't let you do all that with the Verizon label?

    For some reason, no. Unless I'm missing something here on my end. The Nova Launcher Prime 4.0.1 lets me turn on or off the icon label but not VzW's.

    Odd..I would think there are plenty of Verizon users that use this app and use Nova. Maybe do a thread asking if they have been able to do this. Only thing, most people have the messaging icon at the bottom like I do.
