Priority SMS

Priority SMS


If you've ever missed an important message then Priority SMS is for you! Specify keywords and/or contacts and Priority SMS will trigger an alarm when a new message arrives containing the keyword. Set the keyword to "emergency" to set off an alarm whenever "emergency" is in the message, or create a secret code to give to your family and close friends. If you're on call, configure Priority SMS to alarm for any message from dispatch. Whether your phone is in the other room, or if you're sleeping, or whatever the reason may be... you can be sure that Priority SMS won't rest until you're notified of urgent messages.

Priority SMS is also able to alarm after you have missed a call. If your family calls you overnight and you miss the call, Priority SMS can make sure you wake up.

Excellent App! Still works, but crashes on my s4 with lock screen enabled. Must have app for people that have important sms, but still a little buggy.

Doesn't work on Galaxy S3 I created a profile to sound an audible alarm and vibrate when a VIP sends an SMS with text 'emergency'. We tried it and it did not do anything when I was on silent mode or vibrate mode. The app and the profile are set to on (although there is no indication anywhere that the app is running except in the app itself). What gives? The UI is nice and the idea is great but that main function does not work ...

She's a beaut... works well, too Great looking app, I appreciate the "Tasker"-esque profile structure with ON/OFF capabiilties. Speaking of Tasker, integration with it to toggle profiles would be amazing and would address many concerns other people are having (time based, etc.). Good amount of customization to profiles. Smooth functionality. Great for when I'm taking a nap waiting for a particular person's call :P
