Apple has approved my enrollment into the developer programme. I am now expecting the approval process for the app to complete soon.
Update : 13th Sept ’10
The application is complete. I am now waiting for apple to approve my enrollment into the developer program so that I can release the app on app store. In the mean time you can have a look at the screenshots below. The app will support multiple gateways and the user will select a particular account to send the text message. The app also has a update feature to download the new gateway lists. Stay tuned for the developer API to add your own gateways to the application.
Update : 9th Sept ’10
This is taking longer than I thought, and I have put in more features than I had planned initially. Changing ETA to 13th Sept ’10..

I am now working on the creation of a mobile phone application for Android and Iphone which will allow you to send free SMS using the PHP API which I created a month back . This is the domain I never explored before, so will take a bit longer to come up with something useful. Hopefully, I can finish it by the end of this week, so that mid of next week, I can release it here. Follow me on twitter(@kiransmile) to stay updated on the latest posts.
This is a mobile application for iPhone 4 and Android 1.6 which will allow you to send SMS messages to India, UAE, Singapore, Kuwait etc using the free web based SMS gateways like 160by2, way2sms etc. Of course, you will need to register on the respective gateway websites to get an account, afterwhich you push in the accoutn details into the app using an easy to use interface.

Now here’s the deal. 160by2,way2sms and freesms8 offer free SMS and earn money through the ads on their website. By using this PHP script, we are bypassing their website illegally as their ad never gets shown. I hope you will keep this in mind when you use this script. If you want to send free SMS legally, then head over to http://freesmsapi.com and create an account. They are offering an excellent service totally free of cost.
Also the developers at way2sms and freesms8 keep changing their url’s and security methods to prevent such scripts from working (160by2.com guys are cool about this). And as this PHP code published here can be viewed publicly, their jobs become easy. So I will not be able to continue development of the scripts because as soon as I publish the code here, way2sms/freesms8 change their code to break my code.
So there should be a way to restrict access to the PHP code published here so that the code reaches appropriate hands only. Maybe a password protected SVN or forums based on reputation points, I dont know..
Post in your opinions about this as a comment and lets see whether we can work it out together.
Update as of 5th Oct ’10 : Bulk SMS services restored !!
Update as of 24th Sep ’10 : Govt has banned bulk sms temporarily. So all the bulk sms providers have stopped their services. More info. This script will not work till Sep 29th. In the meantime, I will upload the next version of the script which can check internet connectivity, login errors and other responses sent by the gateway. I will also be adding support for freesmsapi.com and freesms8.com gateways.
Update as of 10th Sep ’10: The code has been updated to accomodate a small change in the way2sms website.
Update as of 15th Aug ’10 : The code has been updated to work on all 160by2 and way2sms accounts and also will fetch any error codes being generated by these gateways. If you encounter any bugs, drop in a comment.
This is a PHP script I wrote a while back to automate the sending of SMS/text message using 160by2.com/way2sms.com account.
You can use this PHP API script to send free sms India, Kuwait, Singapore, UAE, Phillipines, Malaysia etc. Very useful if you are combining this with the registration page of your website to verify the users mobile number similar to verification of their email address.
Some possible real world applications of this script are :
1. Email to SMS.
2. Birthday alerts/Daily joke/thought for the day/news SMS
3. Gtalk/XMPP to SMS Continue reading “PHP class to send SMS using free SMS gateways” »
