As you may have read in the “Best Android SMS App” article, we reviewed Go SMS Pro as a unique Android messaging application with lots of features and customization options. In this review, we are going to introduce you the features of Go SMS Pro home screen widgets.
Using its beautiful 4×2 home screen widget, it is now easier to access the latest messages and messaging actions than ever. You can access latest 20, 30 or 50 latest messages. The Show mode option from the widget settings lets you display either all messages or unread ones. If you don’t like the default white widget style, you can also change it from the Style settings. There are currently two styles available: white & black.
The other widget displays only one message at a time. At the top of the widget, you see some details; contact’s name and the date. To navigate through the messages, there is a toolbar at the bottom. Beside the navigation options, you are allowed to reply to the current message via the reply button, though you can’t directly reply from the widget. You will be directed to the main application in order to do the reply. The More Actions button at the bottom right corner gives you options to: Call, send a New Message, Open Inbox, Delete the current message and a link to the widget settings.
The other widget that is 1×1 acts as a App launcher shortcut.
