SMS Alert / Find my phone

SMS Alert / Find my phone


SMS Alert was built to solve 3 major problems in one simple application.
1) Allows someone to RING your phone by sending a simple SMS even if phone is in silent mode (sound is OFF).
2) Find your phone any time by sending a SMS message to your phone with the text filter and it will RING your phone.
3) Phone acts like a pager which can RING on certain text in SMS.

You enter a keyword filter and/or a incoming phone number into the application (for e.g. urgent, asap, a phone number) and share it with family, friends and others. When someone sends a SMS with the keyword filter text or if incoming phone number matches the phone number you entered in the keyword filter, phone will ring even if it is in silent mode.

If you are an IT person, pregnant women's beloved hubby, on-call doctor, professor or anyone carrying a pager - this application can allow you to keep your phone in silent mode but still RING when its urgent. A simple SMS containing text when matches "keyword filter text" you specified in the app will ring your phone like a PAGER. You can also add multiple keyword filters or phone numbers (separated by comma) to ring your phone in different situations.

3) Find the phone
Lastly, you can use this simple application to find your lost phone. Send an SMS message containing keyword filter to your lost phone and your phone will RING.

1) Ability to ring the phone for a particular incoming phone number.
2) Ability to select ringtones.
3) Ability to turn ON/OFF the SMS alerts.
4) Ability to turn off the played alarm by turning on/off the phone.

At first i used the app and it worked OK, but now we get an SMS alert and we cannot turn off the sound when the sms comes in, pulling out the battery worked fine.

Great when it was working. It did break when my phone updated to KK. Now the custom tones do not work. I hope it gets updated

Pretty Good Zip for documentation. Dead links in the app. By trial and error I found that if you want everything to get through the filter, use: .*.*.* But, it does do what it says. I need it to act like a pager at night and wake me up. So far, so good on a Galaxy Nexus i515 using AOKP Jelly Bean 4.2.2 with Verizon. Update: Can't get to the menus with Galaxy S5 so useless there.

Broken under KitKat You are no longer able to select any ringtone or alert that did not come stock on your phone. Please fix this. I can locate and click on custom tons, but the setting does not stick. Droid MAXX. The developer apparently doesn't respond to user requests about problems with the app either. I liked this when it worked under ICS and JB. I paid for the app and now it's useless to me.

Life saving Saved my life a number of times. It sounds an alert whenever it receives an SMS with a specific code, which you can choose, even if the mobile is in silent mode. Helps me locate my lost phone, even if it was on silent or vibration mode. Thank you
