Remembering birthdays, holidays, anniversaries and all the other special occasions that we go through isn’t easy, especially if you have a large family and/or a lot of friends. Setting up calender reminders is one way of how you can make sure that you never again forget important dates and appointments. Another way is to schedule messages with your phone so that they are sent automatically on the big day. Message Scheduler is one such app. It’s an Android text message scheduler where instead of setting up reminders you go straight to the deed and you schedule an SMS for the special occasions, so that you never again forget them.
How to schedule text messages on Android with Message Scheduler
Before we start, here’s a quick overview of Message Scheduler’s features:
- Easy to use with a simple interface
- Message manager – for managing messages
- Group scheduler – mass text message scheduler
- Templates – supports the creation of templates
- Schedule messages by selecting time and date
- Free without having annoying ads
Message Scheduler is extremely easy to use. First thing that you’re gonna see after running the app is a simple main menu where you can find options for accessing the message manager, contact group manager, template manager and the message creator.
Message Box is Message Scheduler’s version of the message inbox, where you can keep track of messages that you’ve created/scheduled/sent. Groups option is very interesting for me because that’s where you can setup groups of contacts to whom you can then schedule and send mass text messages, instead of sending messages individually to users.
To schedule a message you will need to tap on the Schedule Message option, duh, 😀 . Doing that opens up a standard message creator, only next to having the usual fields for selecting contacts and typing messages, you also get a date selector, for selecting the time and date when you want the message sent.
Tap on the date input field opens up a date selector where you get dials for selecting the time and date when you want the message sent. When you’re finished setting up “the when”, tap OK, and then on Schedule in the background, provided of course that you’ve setup “the how”, meaning the contact to whom the message has to be sent and the message body.
Once that a message is scheduled app will check what the current time is and then send it at the time specified. Speaking from experience, I can tell you that you probably shouldn’t schedule a happy birthday message in the middle of night, because it might cause a bit of a suspicion. 😀
This text message scheduler app also comes packed with message templates. There’s several of them available by default if you need a way how to start sending messages right away off the bat. Templates can be edited, or you can of course add your own message templates which you can then easily use later on when scheduling messages.
Message Scheduler is a great app which does everything as advertised. If you’re a forgetful person that’s always in trouble because you keep forgetting birthdays of your SO, family or someone else close to you, then this app is like a dream come true for you.
