VoIP.ms is a voice-over IP service that provides an alternative to traditional land lines and mobile phone plans. The service offers a web-based sms service however it is difficult to operate on a mobile device. VoIP.ms sms seeks to solve this issue by providing users with a mobile SMS experience on the VoIP.ms platform.
If you already have a DID or multiple DIDs (phone numbers) with VoIP.ms you simply need to enable API in the VoIP.ms customer portal to take advantage of SMS on your iPhone. The app has the ability to sync with your existing contacts and also supports push notifications.
Ratings and Reviews
Works well with our (admittedly very simple) setup
Setup was very straightforward, and it seems to work just fine. We have a single DID, so there's not much to complicate things.
Addendum: After updating to iOS 10, this app closes immediately after launching. I've written to the developer, but I despair of any update at this point.
To my surprise, this actually works well.. Not perfect but well. Notifications are slightly delayed and there are no badge counts but this is far better than the default website. Best part is that because this uses the API, I don't have to use my account password. Secure and functional from rev 1. Good job!
Great on my iPad, Unusable (crashes) on older device
Instructions were easy to follow, and it’s simple and straightforward to use.
Works a charm on my iPad (iOS 11), but on my older device (iOS 9), it shows my messages for just a moment before crashing out. Same behavior after restarting the device. Pity, since it would be most useful to have it always available on the go.
Certainly better than using the voip.ms web interface. Thanks to the developer for making it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
