Sending SMS from mobile application

Hi

I am working on MOBILE application. 

I need to send SMS from the mobile application on both iOS and android.

How can I achieve the functionality and is there some forge component?


I have never worked on the SMS functionality before. If a setup is required please mention that too.

Thanks

Hello Shubham.

Mobile apps don't send SMS by themselves.

You can: integrate with the phone to send SMS (you have to ask permissions) or use an external API (that will probably have a cost).


In the Forge you have a lot of tools to look at.

I've used an API that charges 4 to 5 cents for each SMS sent.

Hi Shubham,

You can use an external API (have a cost depends on the provider). I'm using the CM and Twillo (Both are working) for sending Messages in Personal Environment for Both Mobile and Web Applications. You avail the free Trail Account in different SMS Provider. Please refer to the CM and Twilio Component and Website for More Details.
