See where you're going with See Through Messaging

Note this as a strange, but useful app. See Through Messaging for Windows Phone allows the user to create SMS messages and emails on an overlay on top of a real time view of what's behind your handset via the camera. Basically, you can type while looking through your phone.

We've seen this before with TransparentTXT, which runs for $2.49, but See Through Messaging goes for the low, low price of free. (And of course LG users have had 'Look N Type' for free for ages through their app store).

Should you find yourself on the move while contacting other people, See Through Message could save you some embarrassment when not paying attention to what's in front of you. Only downside we noticed was there's not auto-correct nor word suggestions, which means your texting perambulations will be filled with errors, unless you're careful.

Download See Through Messaging from the Marketplace for nothing at all.

Weird, I can't download it. The link just takes me to the Marketplace page for it (on my phone) but the price or trial/buy etc doesn't come up for me. :(

Ah no. Still no Mango yet. The article title should state [Mango] or something for those of us that don't have it yet!

Sounds like a neat app, but in practice it isn't very practical. When using the keyboard my fingers tend to block the camera, plus the text input box doesn't stay transparent when inputting text on my HTC ARRIVE WITH MANGO. It turns white, which means only a very tiny camera view is visible. app has been uninstalled for now. Virtual keyboard in portrait blocks even more of the view. Needs more work, but is great concept!
