Review: SMS Scheduler – Schedule Future SMS Messages
Cost: $4.99 @ the BerryReview Store
I can count how many times I was supposed to text something to someone and forgot. I can also count how many times I was supposed to text something to someone by a certain time and forgot. So I was intrigued to hear that Intellibits created an SMS text scheduler.
I know, I know. I can already hear it, “Why don’t you just place a reminder in your calendar?” Because it will just remind me that I have a text to write. “Why don’t you write out your text, save it and then write a reminder in your calendar to send it?” Did you just hear how many steps that would take? So I decided to tested out SMS Scheduler and I have to say that I am honestly pleased with it. It does exactly what it advertises:
With SmsScheduler you can prepare your SMS messages in advance, and schedule them for automatic delivery at any date & time in the future. Various types of recurrence are also supported, so that a Happy Birthday message is sent all years on Feb 12, for example.
- Allows to schedule unlimited SMS messages
- Allows to specify multiple recipient numbers for each scheduled SMS
- Recipient numbers are easily chosen from the device’s Address Book
- Supports daily, weekly, monthy and yearly recurrence
- All delivered messages are logged and listed through a Log screen
- Scheduler can be temporarily disabled
- Autostarts when the device is turned on, and then runs in background
- Very clean and simple user interface
- Very small size, just 22 KB
- Detailed on-screen instructions
- Works on all devices with OS 4.2 and newer
- Free updates for ever! (including new minor and major releases)
I tested this on some of my friends and family: birthday greetings, shopping lists, reminders, etc., and it works very well. And, if your phone is off during the time your messsage should be sent, the SMS Scheduler will send it as soon as your phone is turned back on. So once it’s scheduled, you don’t have to worry about it.
Pros: Recurrences of texts. Yay! No more forgetting to send the birthday text!
Very easy to use.
Cons: Font is too large in the log screen with no way to make it smaller.
You can purchase SMS Scheduler at the BerryReview Store for a very low $4.99.
