Mobile phones are an integral part of our life.
They have made our lives easy. But they all comes with a price.
We use mobile phones for a lot of works these days, I can’t even list them here.
Messaging is one among them.
Even tough a lot of us use SMS packs for local SMS, but national SMSs are generally charged.
Also there is a limit of 200 SMS per day which we should not forget.
May be this what would have made Mayank Nakrani to develop this cool Android app.

Once registered, you will get a password to your mobile number on verifying which you will get the login details.

The number of characters of each message will be depended on the SMS gateway you selected to login for eg 140 characters is the limit in Way2SMS. The app thus displays the character limits on various SMS gateways too.
