Although this is an app that is beneficial for businesses, it's also a good option for individuals who might want to send text messages using a source other than the phone number associated with the mobile device. You can send messages to all of your contacts, including the ones on your social media lists. Before using the app, you need to sign up with an email address as well as a password. The layout of the app is straightforward and easy to follow. It's similar to most messaging services where you can see messages in both your inbox and outbox. You can also view all of your contacts and your contact history. The app is ideal for businesses to use because of its simplicity. Employers can communicate other people in the office or with employees instead of sending memos. Messages about anything pertaining to the business can be sent so that everyone knows about any changes, hours that might need to be adjusted or other aspects that are important that everyone needs to know about. There are options to send messages as a text, an image or a video. When you send a video, it does take a bit longer because of the type of file. You can create template messages if you know that there are specific types of messages that you want to send. There is also an option to schedule messages that need to be sent at a certain time. Overall, this is an app that is for all people to use and is easy to follow.
