SMS Bot Widget and Android 4.4 Kit Kat

I finally got my hands on a Nexus 5 today and its great. Unfortunately there is a small issue with SMS Bot Widget and Android 4.4. A few days ago Google announced a few changes to the way SMS messages are handled in Android. As a result of these changes SMS Bot Widget can no longer write to a device’s sent messages as of Android 4.4. The messages are still sent so the app fulfills its primary purpose but the device will have no record of it. In order to completely fix this SMS Bot Widget would have to be set as the primary SMS messaging app on the system and that is a lot to ask of a simple widget app. Instead I will update the app to warn Android 4.4 users of this behaviour.
