What's New in Version 1.0.7
Minor Bug Fixes
***APPLE DOES NOT ALLOW SCHEDULED (delayed) TEXT MESSAGES FROM YOUR PHONE WITHOUT HITTING SEND!!!!*** There are app's that allow you to schedule text messages but they come from a different number OR you can use an app like this that pops up the text on your phone, ready to hit send, & it comes from your OWN NUMBER. There is NO OPTION to have it automatically send from your own number because APPLE WON'T ALLOW IT! So, I decided that I'd rather the text come from my own number so that the receiver can respond to me. If they get the text from another number, they have to open up a new text to me I order to respond. Soooo.....if that's what you want, this is the best app I've found, so far, to do that. My only complaint is that the app doesn't allow me to save a group of people such as "Family" to use over & over as recipients. That's my only complaint!
Doesn't actually send.
You have to tap on the push notification and it will open your text messages. The message will be filled in already with what you typed at an earlier date but you still have to hit send.
Also it doesn't save your contacts within the app. If you want to schedule more than one text to the same person, you have to search your phone's contacts each time.
I guess it mostly works like it's supposed to, hence the 2 stars. But I don't think they describe it's functionality that well. A bit misleading.
I want an app that will send texts without me picking up my phone at the time it needs sent.
Used to work
This app was originally amazing, then it just stopped working and made me "miss" out on important messages. I had scheduled a text JUST SO I DIDNT RUN THE RISK OF FORGETTING, and of course it never got sent so when I showed up late to a meeting, no one had been informed and I completely lost my clients . Tried it many times after again and it always seems to fail , this has great potential I hope they fix these issues
