    im new on b4a.. when i try the smsinterceptor and installed on JB it works fine..

    example when the body of my sms is "secret" it should then send a sms to the sender "good" but it will not display it in the default inbox...this works on JB.

    the Problem is... when i try to install it on kitkat and run it... the intent and the sent sms is displayed on inbox...

    is there a code missing in my app...?
    thanks in advance...
