How To Send A Scheduled Text Message Using An Android

scheduled-text-message.png

We’ve all had those times when we wanted to text message someone but the timing just wasn’t right. Maybe it was the middle of the night and the person was sleeping and you didn’t want to risk waking them. Perhaps you knew they were somewhere quiet like school, a library or work and you weren’t sure if their phone was on silent. But what if you forget to send it later? As someone who struggles with procrastination, I also struggle with forgetfulness so learning how to schedule that text when I am thinking of it can be a real life saver.

Enter the SMS Scheduler Android app. It does only one thing but it does it well and simply. It schedules text messages. After a quick (and free) download from the Android Market, setting up scheduled text messages becomes very simple.

Adding A Scheduled Text Message – Creating A New Text Message

Upon opening the app, you’ll be presented with a list of entries (scheduled messages) but as a new user, your list will obviously be empty. To add a text message to your schedule, tap the “Add” button at the bottom.

Adding A Scheduled Text Message – Entering The Recipient

For the next step, you have to enter someone’s phone number. It probably ought to be the number for the person you’re trying to text, but whatever.

Don’t worry, you won’t have to remember the number off the top of your head if it’s in your contacts. Just tap “Find” and the list of your contacts will pop up.

If you use the letters above the list, you can jump through the alphabet making it faster to find the required number. You can even check multiple contacts to send the message to more than one recipient at a time.

Adding A Scheduled SMS Message – Adding The Message

Here’s where we get to the meat of the matter. Enter the text message that was so important and set the time. It’s cool that you can actually set it for a future date as well. Now you can make sure the text reminds that person about that thing right before they need to go to that place.

Adding A Scheduled Text Message – Setting The Frequency

No, this has nothing to do with radios and trying to pick up your favorite station. It’s all about having the ability to resend the message! Actually, it is cool to have the ability to repeat the SMS message multiple times if needed.

On top of sending the same text message every 5 or 15 minutes, you can even repeat it every day, week, month and, believe it or not, every year. I’m sure you can find some sort of use for some of those time increments.

Once you’ve got an entry, it’ll show up on the list so you can keep track of what you’ve got scheduled.

After spending quite some time scheduling tweets using Hootsuite, it’s nice to finally know how to schedule text messages as well and SMS Scheduler makes it all possible.

Did you know that you can send scheduled text messages from your Android? Which application did you use? We’d love to know how you did it so let us know about it in the comments.
