** What is Shady? **

Shady is the most powerful secret messaging application on Android and beats the pants off anything that can be made on Blackberry, or iPhone. It is a contact list, and all messages sent to contacts in the list are only visible within Shady. Unlike the stock messager Shady SMS notifications do not show the content. It is discrete, hidden, SECRET. You can configure the Shady notification message to be anything you'd like, so at 2AM when get a message from Bob's BarBQ there will appear to be nothing Shady going on

** Notifications Replacement **

Shady SMS replaces the stock SMS/MMS notification mechanism. Shady's complete notifications system fully manages all Shady and regular contact SMS/MMS notifications. The stock notifications mechanism is disabled by opening the default messager,and by un-checking the "notifications" checkbox in the settings

** MMS filtering **

Shady has full MMS image/video/text filtering support. Android MMS messages work by first receiving a temp MMS saying "download" or "cancel". Shady does not filter this message because the attachment has not be downloaded yet. Shady waits for the attachment to download, and then filters it to the respective thread in Shady. Please enable auto download mms attachments, in the stock messager, for Shady to automatically filter MMS messages as they are received, otherwise it will just sit there

Audio, and outgoing messages not filtered

** Third Party Messagers **

You must remove Chomp, Handcent, and Go SMS to receive technical support; it is preferred to use Shady ONLY with the stock/default messager that comes with your phone

** Dialer Bug **

Dialer is a bug in the OS on your model phone. It's not something to fix in Shady's code. You can use a dialer replacement app as a solution. Go Contacts!

** Notes **

Sprint customers ported to Google Voice need to disable Google Voice notifications due to the new integration

Go Dialer must have the Call Confirm setting disabled

MIUI roms must enable "Allow 3rd party apps to monitor phone app" in the call settings menu

** Market Download History **

Use of App Locker 2 is officially recommended to lock down the Android Market downloads tab. Its an ingenious solution because apps cannot be removed from the downloads tab

** Affiliation **

Shady SMS is not affiliated with Blackbook, SPC, Blacklist, Redlist, My Calculator, Private SMS/MMS Box, Fox Private Message, Horizon
