Multi-channel messaging solutions company, Admatica, today announced immediate availability of PopMyPhone, an application built for Android smartphones that extends Text and Multimedia messaging, together with call history management, from Smartphones to Tablets and PCs.
“Text messaging is an important communication tool, and it is essential that SMS messages can always be received and acted upon in a timely manner.” Said Robert Wolsey, Admatica’s Co-Founder and Chief Architect . “At one time or another we’ve all left our phones behind when going to work, attending a meeting or just watching TV and suffered as a result. We wanted to provide an app that meant SMS messages could be read wherever there was access to email. And we wanted to make sure replies were possible too.”
PopMyPhone uses email to enable two-way SMS conversations from desktops, laptops and tablets using the phone’s existing messaging and data plans.
When an SMS or MMS message is received on the phone it is immediately forwarded to the user’s preferred email address. This address can be any valid email address including work and personal addresses. Users can then reply directly from within email, with the added benefit that messages can be organized into conversations alongside emails to provide a conversation history.
“Getting SMS and MMS messages via email was only part of the problem we wanted to solve” continued Robert. “As well as missed SMS messages, not being able to see if anyone has called is also a cause of significant inconvenience, not to mention lost business. That’s why we decided to also send call notifications to email.”
