Exchange Instant Messages on Windows Mobile Phones with Handy SMS
Paragon Software Group has released Handy SMS, an advanced text manager that makes the access and exchange of messages on a Windows Mobile phone even easier and more convenient. Handy SMS is all about texting options, privacy protection and organization! The program offers full integration with Outlook, making the switching experience between your smartphone and PC efficient and effortless.
Incoming messages can be viewed and accessed directly from the ‘Today’ screen thanks to the program’s plug-in. The smartphone user can read, write, forward messages, add emoticons or attach business cards. Real-time communication can be achieved with multiple contacts in two taps – sending out a message to several recipients at once or setting up a "live" SMS chat to make the discussion even more instant. Handy SMS enables convenient sorting of all ‘incoming,’ ‘sent’ or ‘drafted’ messages by contact name, automatically assigning them to the appropriate folders. Personalized sounds for each contact keeps messaging easy and allows users to react only when they hear the distinct tone they've set for particular contacts.
For privacy protection, Handy SMS allows users to add messages to Gray and Black lists. Messages in the Gray list are password-protected, while the Black list includes all unwanted and annoying messages that should be blocked immediately. Users can also set auto-reply functions to notify senders of incoming messages that the user is temporarily unavailable with a prewritten text message.
