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.
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.
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
pretty great, just one flaw... I wanted to be able to use my android to send SMSs for monitoring my home network. SMS gateway does the job - a simple 'wget' (or even nc) will do it with http->sms setup - and soon I hope to have the droid trigger its own SMSs as well (extra monitoring). That's pretty fantastic, and makes me happy! The only thing keeping this review from being 5 stars - there are no logs of SMSs being sent. Not in the regular SMS view, and not in SMS Gateway's own log either!
