Texting has become a very important form of communication. Some of us use it more than actual speaking on the phone. Employers use it, coworkers use it, and family and friends as well. And since we love to shorten time and find easier ways, there comes an app to make it easier. Mini SMS to the rescue.
Mini SMS allow you to quick send a SMS to your contact via shortcut keys.
The fastest way to send SMS
Unlimited contacts allowed
Two keys to send a SMS, easy to memorize
Multi colors for group manage
Sort contact list manually
Shortcut key [i] for quick launch
I thought this would be an interesting app to try and see how convenient it would be. As with all MMMOOO apps, you purchase in the store and download as a zip file to your pc. You extract the files and load the .alx file to your BlackBerry via the BlackBerry Desktop Manager/App Loader. I installed the app to my BlackBerry Tour 9630. All went well and it is a very small file.
After rebooting I went to my downloads and there it sat, the little green envelope with a blue M circle on the bottom right corner. When you click on the envelope, you see the blank screen with Mini SMS on the top. Click the options button and you will find Add shortcut at the top. Click on that and it will bring up all your contacts from your contact book. From here you choose a contact and click. A Mini Parameter will come up showing the name, the numbers from Mobile, work, work2, home, and home2. It will also show two shortcut options so you can do initials to remind you of them. You can also choose a color for your contact.
Now here’s how you use it. You put in the most often texted contacts in the Mini SMS. Now when you click i on your keyboard, Mini SMS will come up. Now click the short cuts you chose and presto, the sms with your contact is ready to go. It’s that fast. I was really impressed. You can actually save time and not have to open the SMS app, or go through your contact book. You can just i and the shortcuts and txt away.
I am really taken with how fast it is. It’s great if you have a list of contacts you text regularly, making texting a breeze and a snap. Incredibly easy. And it’s even a great tool for the beginning texter as it’s so easy to use and takes a few long steps out. Especially if you’re getting a parent or grandparent into the BlackBerry, they’ll love it. And for those of us who find the phone a bit of a challenge while we master it. The app can apply to anyone, no matter the age, it can be useful to anyone.
PROS: Ability to do sms text from the app, brings it up as fast as you can click i and the two letter shortcut. Small file, and integrates extremely well.
CONS: The only con I can find is that it’s a zip, not ota file. The only reason I prefer OTA files is because I can download them on the go, or wherever I’m at versus having to spend a few mins on the pc. But that’s the only con that I can find with the app itself.
If you use text, this tool will prove itself extremely valuable. And for the price, it’s a great value.
