Where did the settings and app icon go in the Message+ update?
thehunmonkgroup

Just received the new Message+ update on my Macbook pro running Yosemite. The old app had two important things that seem to be missing in the new app, where are they?

1. Settings: I see no way to change any settings, the old app had some options, and would let you disconnect a device, etc -- where have they moved?

2. App icon: The old app, when running, appeared as a regular app, which meant I could use the standard Command + Tab of the Application Switcher to access it easily. Now, when a new message comes in, the only way I see to open up the conversation pane to to click on the icon in the menu bar, then click on the 'Conversation List' menu item. This sucks on many levels -- way less convenient! Is there any way to restore this functionality?

Updates can definitely move things around and take a bit more effort to find thehunmonkgroup . Good thing you have us to help. To access settings, you would need to follow these steps:


1.Click the Settings icon in the upper-left of the Conversation List.
2.Click Settings.
3.Click Manage Device.
4.Click Disconnect Device.
5.A confirmation pop-up will be displayed. Click Disconnect to disconnect the device.


If you're still not able to access Settings, please reply with the version of Verizon Messages you currently have.

There is no settings icon in the upper left of the Conversation List, see image here: Message+ and Inbox | Verizon Wireless Community

I don't even see a way to get the version info from the program -- I believe it's the latest on the Mac App Store, 1.5.0.
