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.
New Features includes:
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.
