REMOTE TURN OFF v1.2
Turn off your device remotely via a SMS

Introduction:
This app will read receiving sms and executes power off command if any of the messages starts with previously set keyword received.

Usage:
1. Open the app (Remote Power Off)
2. Enter "null" as the current code. (case sensitive)
3. Enter anything as you wish as your keyword to turn off your device. (case sensitive)
4. Send a sms starting with your keyword to your device from any number. (CASE SENSITIVE)
5. You will be asked to grant SuperUser access to the app. Give permanent superuser permissions (only for the first time)

Requirements:
A ROOTED device

NOTE:
Every keyword you type is case sensitive

NOTE-2:
I'm not a developer or a programmer. I'm few days old for the programming field.
I created this app for my personal use. Thought it would be nice if I share it with you. There maybe errors with the app as I'm a noob for this field (haven't found any errors yet)
I spent about 6 days to develop this app from v1.1 to v1.2. And I think it worths it.

Give me your comments and suggestions about this app.


SCREENSHOTS:


Flash it & enjoy!!!

Sorry bro! You can't change it. As I mentioned earlier I created it for my personal use. So I didn't had the need to change it and I don't have much knowledge yet to improve this.

Will the incoming message "power#off" be hidden or it will be there in inbox?
