NOW COMPATIBLE WITH MONO.NET - CAN RUN IN LINUX!
.NET Framework 2.0 runtime (either Microsoft or Mono), net access on port 80 (websites).
All the data entered into the app are stored in Wherever You Installed To\MySmsSender.data.
The data is encoded (not human readable), but not encrypted, so if someone can get your MySmsSender.data file, they’d have access to your numbers and able use your MyNetFone account.
Caution: Message history is now also saved in the MySmsSender.data file, so you might want to be careful with that.
- Saves to a non-encrypted non-humanreadable file when closed (saves “Settings”, “Contacts” and “Message History”).
- Multiple recipients can be entered, seperated with “, ” or “; “.
- Allows local Australian (0404123123) and international numbers (+447111222333+, start AND finish with a +).
- Recipients can be entered in email-like format, eg, [email protected]

- “Contacts” can be selected (using the checkboxes) as recipients (buggy, just keep trying).

- Shows status of all messages sent/being sent for the current session.
- Queues messages to be sent in ‘the background’, so you can work on a new message without waiting for the prior one(s) to succeed.

- Displays a “New Version!” hyperlink when a new version is available. Clicking on the link opens the Download webpage.
- Displays “hints” at the bottom of the GUI as you move around the application.
The application can run from anywhere with read/write access. So you can copy the EXE to a USB key, and run it from there. The DATA file is stored wherever the EXE is located, nothing is recorded anywhere else on the system.
*The host system still needs .NET framework 2.0, and a security policy allowing .NET applications to run from your device (USB key, etc).
Note I have no interest in gearing this app toward mass-messaging or any kind of commercial service. It will always be a simple, point-and-click application :-)
