Text Later is the simple solution to sending SMS messages at a later date. Need to send a reminder about a meeting? Or maybe you are a little forgetful about sending out Happy Birthday messages to friends and family. Text Later allows you to send out SMS messages to contacts, at any date or time of your choosing. Make sure you have a texting plan through your carrier, as Text Later sends standard SMS messages and you are responsible for any charges from your carrier regarding the sending of SMS messages.

The latest update refreshes the UI to better conform to updated Android standards. Now it's even simpler to schedule text messages!

By default you can send messages based on a 15 minute interval, however if you prefer a different spacing you can change it in the settings menu.

Sent messages will be logged to your default messages app. That way you'll never forget what you said.

If you find issues please email me, don't put them in the comments. I cannot respond to comments, but I will fix issues that come to me via email. :)

Some comments have claimed this will send spam messages. THE APP WILL NOT SEND SUCH MESSAGES. If you are getting that it is from some other app. That type of behavior is against Google play policy, and I do not engage in that sort of thing. The only messages that will be sent are ones that you schedule.

This is a free app, I make no warranties regarding it.

    I really this app, sometimes I need to send friends birthday wishes at exactly 12 a.m so I just set the time type my text and it sends perfectly in time. Great for texting parents when they want you to an your too busy too.
