Is there an app that has a homescreen shortcut to mark all SMS text messages as read? Or an app that does this when I run it?

Install Go SMS Pro & use its Mark all read option (Its in More tab of options menu). As data container of text messages are shared between apps, changes will be reflected in stock messaging app too.

Any option for less clicks? Is there an option to mark the message as read when it's short enough to read it in the notification? – takeshin Feb 10 '13 at 10:37
Go SMS is kind of heavy on my RAM. – Adobe Jan 23 '14 at 9:06

ChompSMS has a "mark all as read" option
