Text messaging is now fairly old technology but you can’t argue with its usefulness or relevance. Two fresh apps add functionality to this standard feature of cell phones. TextBusy forwards SMS messages to email while Text Monkey lets you schedule text messages for the future. Finally, Translate Pro allows you to translate on-the-fly over your Android.

Want to send a text in the future? Text Monkey lets you write and schedule a text message for future delivery. Maybe you want to send a reminder or queue up an important text so you don’t forget, for example.

The app integrates into Android’s notification bar and your Messaging “sent” folder so you can track the scheduled messages before and after it has been delivered.
