How do I make a friend's name appear in textPlus instead of just their phone number?

To have a regular phone user's name appear in textPlus instead of just their number:

1. Select a conversation you are having with the phone user
2. Tap the grey default picture next to one of their messages
3. Tap Add to Contacts
4. Tap Create New Contact
5. Enter their first and last names in the name fields (and then tap Add Photo if you want to also assign them a picture)
6. Tap Done, and then tap Done again
7. Go back to the conversation and now you will see their name instead of their number

textPlus pulls your contacts stored within your device.  Any changes and updates that are done within your device's contacts list should take immediate effect in your textPlus application (or upon next relaunch).  You will want to assign a 10-digit U.S. or Canadian phone number to your contact in your address book before launching textPlus.
