    Question Hate the SMS function... Any alternatives?

    Hi there,

    I really dislike the SMS text messaging on the iPhone. It drives me crazy pressing the wrong keys all of the time (mind you the auto correct is very good). It would be much better if this application was laid out in landscape mode.

    I would much rather be able to send text messages via the way most mobiles do with predictive text. Is there any program out there that offers an alternative way to text? Just the regular keypad would be fine...

    I hate landscape mode on the phone because the keypad covers almost the entirety of the screen. I've never had a problem using it in portrait mode, but then again I don't have chubby fingers.

    It seems like there are a lot of people who want the SMS counter. From what I can gather it is not going to be as simple to develop as people would think. I read somewhere that a whole new text messaging application would have to be written.

    If this is the case it would be good if someone could put together a more user friendly SMS application. The original in landscape would be better but I would still like to see a tradidtional predictive text keypad.

    would be great if someone would rewrite the whole sms.app.
    it lacks of a lot of functionality:
    - multiple recipients
    - possibility to add contact-details (e.g. phone-nr, email ...) to the text
    - letter-counter
    - transmissionreports (can be done by adding a permanent prefix to the text - e.g. *N# for german carriers) and a seperate folder for them
    - possibility to delete single messages (and not only the whole conversation)

    any other ideas?
