Abstract / Introduction

Sometimes timing is everything. Maybe you want to send best wishes to someone in a different time zone and know that their favorite time is around 03:00 AM of your time. Or maybe you’re not too great at remembering; frequently, forget birthdays or anniversaries of your near and dear ones. It’s okay (we won’t tell anyone), we have the best-messaging app which will do that job for you.

SMS Scheduler is an Android-based mobile application that sends Text Messages (SMS) and Multimedia Messages (MMS) at a certain period of time with a certain frequency. Just run SMS Scheduler app, write a message and set date & time of your choice (that’s all from you), the message will be sent by the app at exact date & time as a set.
