One of the features within Windows Mobile OS for Pocket PC that is ommitted from its Smartphone bretherin is the text message bubbles.

SMS Bubbles changes all that, allowing you to view incoming text messages in a bubble on screen, making it much easier to see messages as soon as they come in. It also allows you to look at delivery receipts in a similar format.

Another interesting addition to the program is a feature for resolving phone numbers in text messages and delivery reports. SMS Bubbles automatically recognises telephone numbers within a message, looking up the number in your contacts and providing a quick link for you to call them back.

There are loads of settings you can mess around with, including options to disable bubbles in profile, turn off screen in profile and to show profile. You can switch each option on or off using a check box, though I did find the menu a little confusing because the option descriptions are very vague and there's precious little in the way of help.

On the whole though, SMS Bubble provides a better way of viewing your incoming texts and quickly accessing numbers inside messages.

SMS Bubbles brings to the world of Windows Mobile Smartphones feature that their "big brother", Pocket PC, has by default - text message preview in bubble.

SMS Bubbles displays incoming text message or delivery receipt in a "bubble". If text of message contains a phone number SMS Bubbles tries to find matching contact from the phone's contact list and according to the settings replaces the number by composed contact string. All phone numbers in a bubble are shown as links, so it is possible to activate them and then make a call to the linked phone number.
