but first in regards to the bad-apk upload to google-play prior to 7/03/2014
for all those who dont know, the update was in regards to a settings not applying glitch causing the app to fail completely if it wasnt my set device id so i had no clue untill i saw a review then tested on mine then on my friends phone:
i feel bad i uploaded a bad apk and got around 30 people disapointed and 3 who baught pro disapointed so i have refunded all for pro version, removed it, then removed all ads from the free version and republished on 7/03/2014 and work a straight 6 hours to get it up+running fully from scratch with minimal code reusing to make sure it works, same android restrictions apply so gps toggling and a few others still apply, but i tried many methods to get it working, but only tested on 4.4.2 but some codes should work for 4.0+ but i feel really bad about it so i did all i could to remake it as well as i could so please try to give it another shot as i worked hard to get it up+running to work again =)
**For GoSMS+Other SMS/MMS App Users that are not receiving commands:
I haven't used this program yet. I use Cerberus which has the same problem with GOSMS.
Here is a solution that works for cerberus and should work in similar situations:
Open Go SMS Pro, tap 'Menu', 'Settings', 'Advanced', 'Other setting' then uncheck 'Disable other message notifications'.
Then back to 'Advanced', then 'Notification settings', check 'Notification bar privacy mode' and that so it will not display the recieved sms commend!
Then open the stock SMS App, tap 'Menu', 'Settings' then uncheck 'Notifications'.
The idea can be used with Handcent sms and other sms programs. Hope it works
This is a SMS Broadcast Receiver app that will listen to incoming Text messages and do a Pre-Made task set to them
This app was partially inspired by the Remote Terminal, Remote ShutOff, and Remote Unlock apps from the xda-announcements
(not sure of developer names at the moment, but i did like those apps myself and thought "why dont i make one just like that?"
So i did. and it doesn't need to be a system app or fully rooted to do so!
**note** i'm a single person developer so i cannot make every function compatible for every phone because i only have a Samsung Galaxy S4 (jfltevzw, Partly Broken-Yet-?Unlocked? bootloader, Rooted Stock 4.4.2), so if a feature doesn't work for you, i cannot help much because i only can test it on mine at the moment, and this works perfectly on mine as far as i test, so sorry in advanced if anything doesnt work, send me a logcat of reproduction, your phones model, android version, if you are rooted, and try to follow this format enough
Example Based on my personal phone:.
-Phone Model: Samsung Galaxy S4 -Phone Code Name(if-Known, otherwise skip this): jflte-vzw -Phone Android Version: 4.4.2 -App Version: 999999-DEV (My Personal Version Tag, i only have it, gets changed on releases) -Are Rooted?: Yes -Root Was Granted?: Yes -Have a LogCat?: This is just an example; but say "yes" or "no" or their respective simaliers your comfortable with like "yea","yeah","nah" -Is Device Administrator Enabled?: Yes. -Issue (all details): this is an example of the issue Area.
Features include: [R] = root required [~R] = root may be required for newer phones [D] = Disabled in Disable Dangerous On Wildcards
-turning on/off the service when changing passcodes(or typing in the same passcode in old, new, and confirm)
-[R]Shutting off phone
-[R]Rebooting into recovery
-[R][D]Sending terminal commands
-[R][D]Uninstalling apps remotely (By package name, eg. com.rovio.angrybirds, **reboot afterwards required**, system apps uninstallable also)
-Sending Echo's (toast messages, multi-lined acceptable)
-Sending multiple Echos (multi-line Echo's, separated into different toast messages one-after-another)

-[D]SDcard Wiping (Cannot be undone, see notes and warnings below command)
-[D]Remote Factory Reset (device admin needs to be enabled, android 2.2+)
-[~R]Toggle wifi, wifi hotspot, gps, bluetooth, ADB (on newer android firmware, some toggles need to be on a rooted phone for toggles to work; GPS requires to be a system app)
-Text-to-Speech (Makes your phone talk and say what you put after the command, some censors are put)
-One-Time Alarm sound (makes your phone set off the alarm sound, if failed (or media/sdcard unmounted) does System Alarm sound, if failed notification sound, if that fails does ringtone)
-Looping Alarm sound (shuts off with snooze command)
-Custom Alarm ( place "Alarm.mp3" in (external sdcard path)/KittleApps/Smstasks/Alarms/Alarm.mp3)

-Reading all your incoming text messages with the announcement "Text from (number or email) saying... (message)" (can be disabled/enabled in commands, or in the more settings menu.)
-Disabling/enabling almost any command (does not disable command to check superuser or the command to enable/disable commands)
-White-listing 2 numbers, and one email (no special characters use only numbers 0 through 9, no Country codes, Can allow all numbers (not email), by setting only the wildcard * )
-GPS Tracking (only as good as the gps on your phone, gives overall accuracy in metres, this will turn on gps on start) (separate command to stop tracking)
-Testing if app is installed and running correctly.
-Requiring Confirmation of pass phrase to disable/enable change whitelists
Commands (and format) to use these are, (where (pass)= your passphrase) (options for a few select commands are: true,false,enabled,disabled,t,f)
**Note: when it says "1234", or (option), do not include the ( ) or " Symbol(s) in the command. only your pass phrase and/or the option with spaces only to separate the [email protected], the passphrase, and options, with no spaces afterwards unless it is the speak, echo, multi-echo, cmd commands so far**:
Sending terminal commands:
Shutting off phone:
Reboot into recovery:
[email protected] (package name of app, and include /system/app file name without .apk also if a system app)
echo (what to put in a single toast, can also be separated by new lines for multi-lined toasts)
how are you today?
im doing good!
multi-echo (what to put in the first/single toast, new seperated-echos are separated by new lines)
how are you today?
im doing good!

Alarm (Looped version):
Remotely Lock Device:
Check superuser request:
Testing if app is installed and running correctly;
**you will get a text back to the phone that sent the command if its working)

End OF Commands:
in regards to convert this (or any app) to a system app via commands?
type these in seperate texts in new messages (as it will be long...) make #### your currently set pass phrase
[email protected]#### cp /data/app/com.kittleapps.app.smstask.apk > /system/app/smstasks.apk [email protected]#### chmod 644 /system/app/smstasks.apk [email protected]#### rm /data/app/com.kittleapps.app.smstasks.apk
**do not use this method maliciously! i'm just showing for some users to convert to system app easily using my app for gps toggling issues! **
In Regards to the [email protected] Command "Being Malicious" as some argue to me it is, heres an explaination why its not :P
This command now uses an overlay to keep the Activity ALWAYS on-top, it will be fullscreen, and may seem the home button, back button, and others do not work;
this is intentional, but not maliciously, i have been given rants+complaints about it "Hacking the home button", but this is not the case;
the command loads an overlay on top of all apps like Facebook's ChatHeads, only it will not read back keys like their app, or home keys like their app to close it due to it being a security feature for this app (as its a remote controlling app, based on security) so it wouldnt be wise to allow the tracking to be shut off with a simple back press right? and i dont want to do a background one, as thats a battery hog :P
but.. to close the app you MUST use the [email protected] command, or wait untill it does its default Max Location Texts to be sent (3): after that the [email protected] will stop the location tracking, and close the dialog by shutting down the activity; but i will let you know it is not malicious and i will provide the code used for the overlay as-is on-request in a private message, email, or simply in a reply and ill add it in a CODE tag, or attach the file as-is in the reply i make so you can see =P i DO NOT EVER intend to be malicious, as it is bad practices for online communities, let alone developers and their work, thus why i add warnings to do not use it maliciously, or what could be dangerous if misused not as intended =)
