If you own a business of any kind, work with social media or just have to interact with a lot of people , Autosms is an app that will come in handy. This app allows one to preset a promotional text message and a customized business card that you can create yourself right inside this nifty little app. In case, you are insanely popular like me and don’t want to have random people, who are not in your contacts list, nag you with texts, you can send them a friendly message as well. In my experience this app has worked pretty well so far.
Features and Usability
Right from the start you are presented with a very well designed interface that is incredibly easy to follow. You have tabs along the bottom of the screen that lets you create your personalized message, business card, simple configurations menu, a log of each sent messages and finally an upgrade button in case you don’t have the paid version. The only drawback of the free versions is that it only lets you send a total of 3 messages per day. One of the nice features of this app is that it lets you exclude your contacts list, allowing your personal life to be left alone. In my tests, the app sent out the response in a split second with no problem to speak of. Not being picky or anything, I was not fond of the low resolution icons that has been used in this application. Thankfully, its not too discomforting and I have already contacted the author about it.
With the paid version costing $3.12 as of late January, I am not yet completely convinced to buy this application yet. Although the layout is top notch, I would like to see some features like forwarding text messages so your coworkers can see them as well, and scheduled messaging allowing you to update customers about your products and such. All in all, I give this app a thumbs up for clean look, friendly interface and superb performance and hope that the developer adds more functions in the future to justify the relatively premium cost.
