Developer's Notes

Delayed SMS text message, auto reply and text forward. Let Text Monkey do it.

Silent Chimp brings you the Text Monkey, the friendly little SMS delayed text message sender, text divert SMS message forwarder and text responder SMS message reply tool. Want to send an SMS delayed text message in an hour?, tomorrow at 12.00 or even in a weeks or months time?, Text Monkey will take your SMS text message and store it for sending at the time for the delay you set. Want to set an auto reply message to let people know your driving, in a meeting or leaving a phone at home, use the SMS reply tool. Want to forward texts to another number, have your texts forwarded on to another phone.

Whether it's that SMS text message to your niece tomorrow to wish her happy birthday, or that SMS text message to your wife to say happy valentines, maybe you need to let the boss know you will be in late the next day. You could even text 6 people the same message all at the same time by creating a multi contact message, so why not let the monkey do it for you.

Text Monkey will let you create a SMS text message, put a delay on it using our custom spinning wheels to set time and date, choose as many people as you want to send it to, and store it ready for sending. You can review stored messages, delete messages stored, edit messages, input a number not in your phone book, add or remove contacts for each message and even use your contacts manager to pick out your contact from a search. If you want your text to repeat, simply add your level of repeat from day through to year.

Once your SMS text messages are stored, Text Monkey will send them at the desired time and date sending them after the correct amount of delay accurate to the minute (when in signal), should your phone be in airplane mode or out of signal at the time it should be sent, Text Monkey will keep checking until signal is back up before attempting to send asap. Once signal is back up, the message will be sent immediately.

2) Contact picker

3) Message counter to gauge cost per message (green amber red)
