Text Later

Text Later


Text Later is the simple solution to sending SMS messages at a later date. Need to send a reminder about a meeting? Or maybe you are a little forgetful about sending out Happy Birthday messages to friends and family. Text Later allows you to send out SMS messages to contacts, at any date or time of your choosing. Make sure you have a texting plan through your carrier, as Text Later sends standard SMS messages and you are responsible for any charges from your carrier regarding the sending of SMS messages.

The latest update refreshes the UI to better conform to updated Android standards. Now it's even simpler to schedule text messages!

By default you can send messages based on a 15 minute interval, however if you prefer a different spacing you can change it in the settings menu.

In Android KitKat and above, dent messages will be logged to your default messages app. That way you'll never forget what you said.

If you find issues please email me, don't put them in the comments. I cannot respond to comments, but I will fix issues that come to me via email. :)

Some comments have claimed this will send spam messages. THE APP WILL NOT SEND SUCH MESSAGES. If you are getting that it is from some other app. That type of behavior is against Google play policy, and I do not engage in that sort of thing. The only messages that will be sent are ones that you schedule.

This is a free app, I make no warranties regarding it.

- INTERNET: This is a free ad-supported application. Internet access is used *ONLY* for ads.

NEW v 1.4
- WAKE LOCK (Prevent device from sleeping): This ensures that messages go out at the time that they are scheduled, and not delayed if the device happens to be in a CPU idle sleep.
- WRITE SMS: This is for the new experimental feature to log the SMS messages to your default SMS app.
- READ SMS: This is required and used ONLY for the new experimental feature so that SMS messages can be added to your regular SMS app.

NEW v. 1.7

Works very well The app does exactly what they say it makes it possible to write a text and send it later. 8-21-15 I do not use the app every day but it has stopped working and sends text on the wrong date and more than I sent. I'm not sure what went wrong but I'm uninstalling the app

Must be the latest update? WAS, working fine. Just tried to set up a text for tomorrow morning. I ABSOLUTELY had the right date & time, but when I went into view scheduled texts, it showed Non. But I did get a confirmation that the text was Sent a minute after I hit scheduled. Have had this app for a cpl of yrs with no problems. IDK?

Very useful! It works very well for the intended purpose; write a message now and have it sent at a later date / time. The time can be set with reasonable granularity. The integration with contacts works smoothly also.
