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.

    Work nights. Text friends before bed and have it send when they're awake. Perfect solution.

    Did not work correctly. I set it to send out a text every hour and it didn't do it it ended up sending out three texts at all at the same time 3 hours after the first one was supposed to be sent out. Don't waste your time don't download it

    I love this app, it really comes in handy for me. Its easy and convenient. If I think of something I need to tell someone at a crazy hour, I just write the text while I'm still thinking about it and set delivery for later. This also great for sending reminders to my husband. If I need him to pick something up on his way home I just set up a text to deliver right before he leaves work that way nei
