hendy Pop3 doesn't work. Http okay but app is flaky. Dies after a few days and hard to restart. Also seems to freak out with certain text combinations. .. weird. Seems like a dead app as no Dev since 2012 and Dev website has daft message. Shame. :( so close to being the ultimate sms gateway app but Dev seems to have lost interest.
brilliant little app! Setting up pop3 on a gmail account requires 'less secure apps' turned on. Also any emails picked up need to be plain text or you get mimetype error sms instead. Not an issue when sending mail via script as intended.
Unfortunatelly does not work correctly on dual sim device. (In my case Alcatel OneTouch C5). If first radio is turned off, app can't send SMS using second radio/sim card. There is no option to choose default sim for sending messages. Only first sim is responsible for sending SMS's.
Great and simple I use it to broadcast information to community, i create php app and run it with php server on android, just simple query from database to send sms. I hope it can run with root, so never die, or use notification center to stay awake, sometimes service stopped and started again
I liked the app. Just a few short comings i noticed - 1. Pop3 to SMS is not versy much secure. Anybody can drop an email to the mail address and that will cause SMS sending. This should be protected by some password. like subject should be - no.~password etc. Or mail body can be in a specified xml or other format. 2. When we start the gateway, on the home screen only, it should show some more details, like how to send msg using http etc. 3. In case of dual sim phone, i can't find the setting to select the sim to send the SMS.
Fantasic app, just what my brother needed Been looking for an app like this for a while, my brother regularly needs to send hundreds of texts for his partners slimming group, with his old Nokia 5800 & PC Suite he could import and send them. With this he can send them directly from his Access database using HTTP. For those that wanted to know how to use the http to send, it's very simple from your browser. First off go into the app settings, tick the check box for 'Listen for HTTP send commands', then scroll down to and click HTTP settings. At the bottom of the page it tells you what to type into your browser address bar to send a text message, for example http://phones IP address:9090/sendsms?phone=nnnnnnnnnn&text=hello world Where nnnnnnnnnn = the phone number, and if you entered a password in the setup you would add &password= followed by the password. Sending them from a program using HTTP is rather more complicated, but is something my brother knows how to do. One thing that would be useful to add is the ability to include multiple phone numbers, for instance in the email they could all be separated by a ; and whatever method HTTP requires. For this it would be useful to specify how the app sends messages.
Fixed ICS 4.0 crashes
Added support for blacklisting or whitelisting phone numbers
Added support for immediate SMS reply via HTTP response header.
Added example PHP code.
