Since TRAI has incepted a cap on 100 sms per day(now they have extended it to 200 sms per day), those sms freaks like me have got a shot in the arm. We do have WhatsApp messenger for sms, but it is available only for platforms like Android, Blackberry, iOS, & Symbian phones. Other java OS phones & various other mobile operating system can’t use WhatsApp.
So the solution has been provided by another app JaxtrSMS developed by none other than Sabeer Bhatia, founder of hotmail.com.JaxtrSMS will enable users to send text messages to any mobile phone in the world and the best part is that it is free.The beauty of this app is that, it is not necessary that the recipient of the text message should have the JaxtrSMS application installed on their phone. The text message is behaves like a normal SMS and is received in the mobile phone’s inbox. This application is compatible with all platforms (read iOS, Blackberry OS, Symbian, Android and Java) and can be used in any phone that supports data plans. You can use this application irrespective of the service-provider you subscribe to.
The idea came to Sabeer Bhatia a year ago when his wife expressed the interest to switch to Blackberry from iPhone because she wanted to chat for free with her friends through BBM. This made him start thinking about an application which would send “SMS for FREE”. His partner, Yogesh Patel, was receptive to the idea and that is how the story of JaxtrSMS started.
JaxtrSMS is completely developed in India.For all those who want to download this app visit: http://www.jaxtrsms.com/download.html
