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.

Needs to work in silent mode I need an app that can wake the phone from sleep, and also make an alarm sound even if the phone is set to Silent mode. This app doesn't seem to be able to work when the phone is silenced.

Works as adverised but it drains my battery quickly. I can only assume it's constantly checking for new messages since my battery stats show that Phone is using the most battery (29%) when I never make phone calls. Uninstalled and battery life went back up.
