There are predictions that the SMS is dying a slow death. Regardless of the fact that there are plenty of popular apps like Whatsapp, Line etc. that allow users to send messages, videos and make calls for free, there are plenty of applications that allow only SMSs.
Is there a place for these apps is questionable. But there are plenty of them entering the Play Store every day. There are some interesting features available in these. If you still believe in sending SMS and are looking to do it for free, then here are a few that you can try out.
Freaky SMS is one of the newest entrants in the free SMS sending apps arena. As per their listing on the Google Play Store, users of the app an send unlimited, 145 characters SMS for FREE to people in India. Some of the features of this FreakySMS app include.
JaxtrSMS lets you send FREE SMS and txt messages to any mobile phone in the world. The SMS recipients are not required to install the app before using it. This makes it the world’s first mobile based SMS app which is completely open. Amongst a host of free SMS services, this ‘open’ feature of JaxtrSMS gives it an edge over other SMS apps. JaxtrSMS links directly to your address book so you can send messages to anyone whether they have JaxtrSMS or not. There is no limit to the number of messages you can send.
Send unlimited SMS for free right from your Android Device! It boasts to have a good collection of SMS and Jokes on Android application. They claim they love creating apps, and want to keep them free forever. If anyone loves the app and wants to help the developers they can use their a search service to generate some revenue from this free app.
Another app which has a simple user interface and allows users to send unlimited text/SMS to any mobile phone number in India for free is JustSMS. Users just need to register for a new account and then start adding contacts easily. An additional feature of this app is that it comes with lots of SMS templates which you can use when you are in a hurry or, maybe, just too lazy to type.
TextraSMS has one of the most elegant user interfaces which is also simple to use but when I used it to send out test messages, I did not like this app too much because messages failed to get delivered on time. While the previous two apps delivered my sms instantly, there was a considerable time lag when I used this service. I am not sure if others face the same problem while using this app.
