If you would like to support my work, feel free to purchase the app from google play. (It is on sale for $0.99 right now ) ButlerSMS
Check second post for what is currently being worked on. NOTE: This new version has significant changes to the database.
To prevent force closes, I had to force the app to empty your current database.
All custom responses will be lost and settings will be set back to default.
Added "Silent Mode" - when your phone's ringer is turned down to silent, if this is enabled, it will prompt you to turn ButlerSMS on.
Added "Auto Off" - When enabled, you will be offered a timer to have ButlerSMS automatically turn off. (this is only available if turning app on from the actually application and not the widget)
CarDock Mode - When docked in a car, ButlerSMS will automatically turn on.
Shake Mode is an option, but not yet available
Text To Speech plays over phone and Bluetooth when connected to a media device.
The "button" to set the GPS locator password is not functional. You can still set it by toggling the GPS checkbox.
Personalized responses to individual numbers you set
3 different preset modes - Normal, driving and movie
Widget for home screen to toggle normal mode on/off
Text to Speech - Reads sms messages to you when enabled
Reply Timer - App will not reply until after a preset time has elapsed (after their first sms) that is user changeable
GPS Locator - This will respond to a user that sends a pass phrase that you control (pass phrase is set when gps locator is enabled and is cleared when it is disabled).
Voice response - If TTS is enabled, you can send a sms msg via voice. This will unlock your phone to allow you to safely reply to a sms msg. The screen will timeout after 20 seconds of inactivity (not touching the screen) or after you send a voice reply.
Improved TTS by controlling audio volume - When a SMS is received, the audio volume will be muted while your sms is read to you. The volume will raise when it is done reading.
Blacklisting - (Or whitelisting) Numbers in this list will not be replied to.
Re-organized the GUI on the settings page. Makes a lot more sense now (I hope) - Thanks okmijnlp for pointing it out
Voice Reply is now an option that can be turned off
What I am looking for:
Bugs - This has been tested on many GB systems. ICS has not been tested much and I am looking for bugs on it.
New Features - You tell me what you would like in a SMS auto responder. If enough people want it (or it just plainly makes sense), I will add it.
Also, please let me know if anyone receives any type of notification sound during a call when you actually don't have a notification.
What you get in return:
Unlimited use, updates and credit of new ideas added.
I want to thank everyone that helps out in advance!
Note: Do not download the market version, please use the attachment to download.
Here is what I am working on (Items in green are currently being worked on):
Silent Mode - ButlerSMS will have a setting to either auto turn on or prompt you to turn it on.Progress: completed.
Disable Timer - A Timer that will turn ButlerSMS off after x amount of time have passed. This can be set in a setting or also set to prompt everytime it is enabled.Progress: Completed (thank you Panamon)
Car Dock - Auto enable drive mode when phone is in car dock mode. (thank you uosiumen) Progress: Completed
Mode based reply - ButlerSMS will offer 4 modes (user can name) that can be set for a 24 hr period. ButlerSMS will then turn itself on or off depending on the action the user sets.
Group Reply - Groups can be created and contacts/numbers can be added.
