Move "Send" button to middle of screen and make keyboard stay put

The only two things I don't like:

(in order of my personal priority)

1) The "Send" button is not really within reach of my thumb since it's in the top right corner. This is bad. Please move it to the middle like the built-in SMS app and put the Attachment icon in the top right corner (since it would be much less frequently used)

2) Every time I send a text, the keyboard disappears. While I guess some people would prefer this, I find it distracting when all I want to do is immediately type another message. Can this be a preference please?

3) The "back arrow" (or whatever it's called) in the top left corner shows "Messages (1)" every time I send and receive a message for the conversation that is currently active. This seems to be a bug. It should only show that if there is a new message in a conversation that I am NOT currently in.

4) Can there be some sensibility to displaying the time and date stamp of each message? I don't think it needs to show for every single one. Maybe only show it if more than 30 minutes has elapsed between the current message and the previous message. This would help save vertical space in the conversation.

5) Can there be a preference to not show user icons (the ones it is pulling from Contacts)?

6) I think 2 lines of display in the input box is enough. 3 is overkill and covers up too much of the conversation while you are typing.

    Thanks for taking the time to post this. These all look like good and reasonable preferences, and I'll pass them on.

    I can say now that for #3, that has been fixed and should be coming in an update soon.
