Experimenting with landscape and UI changes

Don’t you hate how when typing in landscape, the entire screen turns into a message box?

Well I’ve been experimenting with different layout UIs, but take a look at what I’m trying to perfect:


Now you can see what’s actually going on when you message. I’m considering adding some shortcut under the send button what do you guys think?

Also, you’ll see I’ve included some UI changes per suggestions and added my Settings icon. You have the following 4 options (so far) in Settings > UI > Messages

  • IM Service Indicator (ON)
  • IM Service Icon (OFF)
  • Contact Picture (ON)
  • Colored Status (ON)

Theme options all stack. I think I’m going to leave this as default except for Colored Status, but it shows how you can customize it to your liking. Also, that Dark Theme regular contact picture I had to whip up in Photoshop.

Leave your suggestions for landscape view!
