Change your iPhone’s SMS text message bubbles to a matte finish – iPhone Matte

We love the threaded SMS text messaging system on the iPhone. But, some of you may be getting a bit tired of the shiny-look and green/gray color scheme of the text-bubbles. Well, this one goes out to you.

Joshua Bryant has released his iPhone Matte to change the shiny-finish of the text-bubbles to a “matte” finish. iPhone Matte even gives you the option to change the color-scheme of your chat-bubbles – with 9 flashy colors to choose from. For what it’s worth, the color choices give new life to the iPhone’s chat bubbles, but we’re not fans of the matte finish.
