    Absolutely terrible app. Looks like it was designed by a two year old. The blue colour is nauseating and the empty space is vast. I don't know how you expect this to become the default messaging app for windows when it looks so ghastly and performs so poorly. If Skype does become the default messaging app without a major overhaul then this 1520 will be my last Windows phone. Uninstalled.
