Turn your android device into a SMS to e-mail reply server with this SMS Responder app. People can send an SMS to your number with their email address to obtain information about a product, listing, service etc and the app automatically responds on their email address with the details and images of the requested item. You may add or remove entries from the database as required and add new rules to define what reply to send to SMSs received in a particular format. Your customers can request for information by SMSing a request to your number.
Features: - Define multiple email account settings that can be used to send emails - Control on activity whether to process and send email instantly, or to just process new incoming SMSs and storing them in the database for sending later (in case you do not have access to internet) - Add or Remove new listings/product details with images into the app - Complete log of successful and failed requests
Lite Version: Limited to 25 mails a day Custom rule adding disabled
How it works? Let’s say you have multiple products on sale. You add new listings for each product with its image into the database with a unique code or product name. Then you can define new rule to reply to requests from others. For instance, “RQ ” is a rule and we define the rule to send product details as well as images to the requesting email id provided in the incoming SMS. With this rule in place, let’s say a user sends a SMS with content “RQ Pro1 firstname.lastname@example.org” to your number. Details about the product with code “Pro1” is sent to “email@example.com” automatically with images of the product. If another user sends SMS with content “RQ Pro2 firstname.lastname@example.org”, details for the product with code Pro2 is emailed to “email@example.com”. You can configure the settings to tell the app when to process the new SMSs, when to send emails, whether to retry any failed attempts etc.
Who is it for? The app can be used by anyone who wishes to receive SMS request for information on their number and have their phone automatically send appropriate emails to the requesting party. Some uses of the app are for:
i. Product Sale: The app can be used by companies or individuals selling products to reply to product information requests by SMS from others. ii. Service Sale: The app can be used by companies or individuals selling services to reply to request for details of service by SMS from others.
