PictureSMS is the premiere application for the Treo that utilizes picture caller ID on incoming SMS. It implements effective and easy-to-use user interface for sending and receiving text messages while being fashionable and attractive at the same time. Treo's built-in messaging application is so bare and really basic, so it has become boring most of the time. PictureSMS provides everything that the built-in has plus tons of more new cool and useful features, such as Picture caller ID, MP3 message tone, SMS blocking, Text Scheduler, Memo and text file utilization, plus a lot more. This is the best replacement SMS application for Treo. 

Want to schedule a message to send at a specific date and time? Now you can. One of the main features of PictureSMS is the Text Scheduler. Unlike the built-in messaging program, which limits you to only sending messages manually, the Text Scheduler has the ability to schedule outgoing messages automatically.

NOTE: Setup the media setting first.

PictureSMS 1.16 - November 25, 2008

1. Picture ID in the chat thread. LilPic's pictures will be used. If you are still using small pictures like the 30x37 pixel, we suggest you to use a bigger picture to get the best out of this cool new feature. You have to enable this option in pSMS’ Preferences.
2. Save or Draft Folder. This folder can store draft SMS for future sending, SMS that has high importance or has sentimental value, and frequently forwarded/sent SMS. Basically, any text message is possible to save here. Examples are draft SMS, favorite quotes from our love ones, reminders by SMS, greetings, etc. SMS can be transferred here from any form that shows SMS (SMS Chat thread, SMS Scheduler, Quick Reply, Compose form). From the Save folder, you can automatically transfer it to SMS Scheduler or Compose SMS form for easier sending. The order is by the saved date.
3. Option to breakdown long SMS to individual 160-character SMS. A must have for Sprint network subscribers.
4. Hide timestamps option in chat threads.

7. vCard or Business card handling is now supported. Yes, the technology behind vCardManager is now on PictureSMS. vCardManager is still available for the built-in messaging app users and it can still be used by pSMS users by turning this feature off.
