Before Text Mess, Shalin made the hit iOS game Word Mess-which has over 600,000 downloads and has been the #1 word game in 40 countries! At Pixar Animation Studios, Shalin worked on 6 films from Toy Story 3 to Finding Dory. He also worked on the game Spore at Electronic Arts and was a senior game developer on the brain training app Lumosity.

Fun and creative

There are tons of options to make personalized stickers with this app. You write some words (1-3 words work best). Then choose the shape, alignment, color, font, and size. You can save the stickers you make and reuse them. I was pleasantly surprised at all the different choices. There are tons of shapes. I only don't like that they put a tiny "Text Mess" logo in the corner of every sticker. It distracts from the look of the stickers.

There’s no way to contact the developer from the app or AppStore listing. Safari can’t find the server. Hopefully I will get an answer here. I’d like to delete most of my creations. How do I do that without deleting and reinstalling Text Mess?
I like many others have unfairly given Text Mess and other iMessage only apps low ratings. Apple did a nice job promoting this new functionality for iMessage but a poor job educating users how this new class of stand alone iMessage only Apps differ from standard Apps that include the iMessage feature. For example there’s no icon, no results in a Spotlight Search and it can’t be found in Notifications. That leads to a panic response and the need to delete the invisible App lurking in our devices. I still haven’t looked into how to delete iMessage only apps if I wanted to.

As far as Text Mess is concerned, it’s unique among Apps and works well. I’ve had many people ask me about pictures sent from Text Mess. It’s certainly worthy of 5 stars.

Please see http://howto.textmess.ooo for instructions on how to find Text Mess. Unlike normal apps, iMessage applications are found inside the "Messages" app. Further, you need to enable the app from the iMessage app store as shown in the video here -http://howto.textmess.ooo.
Thanks, once you are able to find and use Text Mess kindly reconsider your star rating.

Not very intuitive

First you have to find this thing, which is kind of odd. Then even, it's not very intuitive, and you have to experiment to try to dial it in yourself. It doesn't seem to work with all of your contacts. Still don't know how to work it when your contact is in red at the top, 'cause when it's red, you can't do it! Dev must make this easier to play with. Also, there needs to be more options with the designs you can use, but I understand that may happen when or if this app gets more popular. When you receive a sticker, and you enlarge it, it becomes jagged also. Don't like that. At this point in time, to me, this is just 'meh'.😬 Has good possibilities, though!
