If you've ever missed an important message then Priority SMS is for you! Specify keywords and/or contacts and Priority SMS will trigger an alarm when a new message arrives containing the keyword. Set the keyword to "emergency" to set off an alarm whenever "emergency" is in the message, or create a secret code to give to your family and close friends. If you're on call, configure Priority SMS to alarm for any message from dispatch. Whether your phone is in the other room, or if you're sleeping, or whatever the reason may be... you can be sure that Priority SMS won't rest until you're notified of urgent messages.

Priority SMS is also able to alarm after you have missed a call. If your family calls you overnight and you miss the call, Priority SMS can make sure you wake up.

    I created a profile to sound an audible alarm and vibrate when a VIP sends an SMS with text 'emergency'. We tried it and it did not do anything when I was on silent mode or vibrate mode. The app and the profile are set to on (although there is no indica

    Great looking app, I appreciate the "Tasker"-esque profile structure with ON/OFF capabiilties. Speaking of Tasker, integration with it to toggle profiles would be amazing and would address many concerns other people are having (time based, etc.). Good a

    Relied heavily on this app for critical messages. Wishlist was to add phone support, and sms keyword triggering.... 1.0 rewrite hit all those. Great job.
