Simple SMS for iPad

John Holman
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

Send and receive standard SMS messages with your iPad to any kind of mobile phone from anywhere, WiFi or 3G. This app requires an account with a 2-way SMS gateway, see below.

The recipient does not need a smartphone or any kind of software, and there is no need to know the name of their carrier.

You receive SMS replies direct to the app, and you can also choose to have copies sent to your email.

This is a straightforward SMS messaging app for casual texting, with the familiar 'conversational' interface. It requires access to your Contacts names and phone numbers.

Simple SMS supports:

Long SMS (4)
Message Resend
Multiple Send
Individual Delivery Receipts
Landscape Text Entry
