I would like to have text in bubbles in text message application. It would be more clear view. Even when using ambience of many colors text would be readable.

I do like how it is currently.

Does not need to be a bubble like everywhere else but something should be improved to make the view more clear. Also the "Send" button does not intuitively look like a button, at least my eye mixes that with the text message above it.

You can use the patch Settings for Message layout available on OpenRepos.

It allows to customize the message application, including displaying contact avatar, date and time, swapping sides of sent/received messages, and showing message bubbles.

You'll also need Patchmanager 3 to activate it.
