After opening Shady for the first time WOW, THERE'S NO ICON, NO OPEN BUTTON!
Welcome to Shady SMS 3.0; Shady SMS is by far the best dial to launch secret/hidden SMS messaging application on Android. Once opened there is no icon and no open button!
** How to open Shady **
Once Shady is opened for the first time it is impossible to open the application via any button whatsoever, you have to dial your secret code to open the application. The default dialing code is 123 and 321 and is as simple as opening your telephone and dialing the code and pressing the call button.
** Introduction **
Shady SMS brings you a really cool Android 4.0 optimized user interface, with a fast and secret SMS/MMS messaging experience! The entire contact list is super-fied with complete drag and drop capabilities. Contacts with new messages are automatically moved to the top of the list, and tap to change the star color. Yay for gesture detection!
Shady is the most powerful secret messaging application on Android and beats the pants off anything that can be made on Blackberry, or iPhone. It is a contact list, and all messages sent to contacts in the list are only visible within Shady; Shady contacts are completely invisible to the device, and no longer appear in your phones native messager app.
Unlike the stock messager Shady SMS notifications do not show the content. It is discrete, hidden, SECRET. You can configure the Shady notification message to be anything you'd like, so at 2AM when you get a message from Bob's BarBQ there will appear to be nothing Shady going on. Shady provides maximized confidentiality, and optimized security protecting you from prying eyes. Shady is a vault, THE supreme Android vault solving countless problems!
