SMS Location version has been released and is available on the Android Market.   I added some new features:

* Drop down linked to the contacts for ease of picking the recipient (OK this was done in yesterday’s but today I made it able to search both first and last names!)

* The message is editable prior to sending.  It’s limited to 160 characters for now but if I get requests I’ll remove the limit.

* The message is split if necessary since some languages are limited to 70 characters in SMS messages this could have caused problems in some countries.

That’s about it.  If you like the app, please go into the market and rate it and comment.  Thanks!

Just figured I’d post that I added a Contact drop-down to SMS Location.  Start typing in the contact name and it will show you all of the phone numbers.


Just a reminder – if you downloaded please go to the market and give a rating and maybe a comment or 2.  Thanks!

I’m planning on doing some revisions to SMS Location and adding the following features:

1. You can type a name and search contacts (similar to Handcent SMS)

2. Ability to send e-mail.

3. Ability to edit message prior to sending.

Hopefully I’ll release at least one of the features over the weekend.  If you have any other feature requests, leave them here (or better yet on the Market page along with a rating…) and I’ll see what I can do!


Thanks everyone…

I just wanted to thank everyone who has installed SMS location up till now. It’s passed the 50 download milestone…Now all it needs are ratings and comments.

SMS Location Update

I updated SMS Location to fix a problem where the link sent in an SMS would be used as the start location for a directions search and not show up as a search result.

As I said earlier I planned on taking the App Inventor version of the SMS Location app I did and writing it in Java.  It came out better – and smaller – and I’m thinking about publishing it in the Market.  I know there’s still some work to be done but I figured I’d upload a Beta version if anyone wants to try it.  If you do, let me know what you think – good bad or ugly – so I can work on getting it better.  Here’s the URL or just scan the QR code.
