Is there any way to get all messages in one application. I use 5 email accounts, text messaging and WhatsApp. I dont' want to have to go to 3 different folders when I get 3 different types of messages.

Is there any application, or way to set up my Galaxy S3 to get all messages in one place?

thanks

Why don't the Notifications work for you? –  Al E. Sep 20 '12 at 0:31
    
For what it's worth, I've now seen a number of people online lamenting that their Android device doesn't gather incoming messages the way their dearly departed BlackBerry did. Android just does things differently. I don't even know if it would be possible to create such an app. –  Al E. Sep 20 '12 at 13:46
    
Note, of course, that the stock email app should be able to connect to all of your email accounts, including Gmail, so those messages you can at least get into one place. –  Al E. Sep 20 '12 at 13:47
    
thanks, yes it connects to all my accounts, but I also want text and What's app in the same spot..so all my notifications come in one place. The Notifications work, but I still have to go to different folders to read the email, then to a different spot to read the text messages, and a 3rd spot to read the What's App messages. Too many clicks for my liking ;) –  Nancy Sep 21 '12 at 19:30

You can get most of that if you buy into the Google ecosystem.

I use Gmail for all of my email. I have several addresses. Those non-Gmail addresses I have are auto-forwarded (or pulled via POP3) into my Gmail inbox. I have Gmail set up to send as any of those addresses.

I use Google Voice and only ever give out that number. Any SMS messages sent to my number are forwarded to my Gmail. I can respond to those message by replying to the email message.

Voicemail, similar, is sent to my Gmail. While I can't listen to the voice message right in the email client on Android, it's just a hop and a skip over to the Google Voice app. In any case, I usually just use the automatic transcription to gauge whether I want to call the person back or not.

oh, my..it takes long enough to get my emails..I'm not forwarding them too.. ;) I would prefer just to get all notifications in one spot, like my BB used to have. Makes sense to not have to set more things up. –  Nancy Sep 19 '12 at 18:46
    
You can always get to the individual apps (gmail, sms etc) via notifications. This is probably as close as you're going to get. –  Poldie Sep 19 '12 at 20:35
    
I've tried the app Executive Assistant and it's pretty good, but missing the ability to add other messaging applications, like What's App –  Nancy Sep 21 '12 at 19:31
