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.

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

Trying on Samsung Galaxy S 3 and no dice.. I am stuck on where i shoud give it root permission. I never get the option. I tried texting myself and that didn't work. I then text off another phone and that still showed the text message with 'power#off' and nothing. Will this only work with the default messaging app installed? I have GOSMS installed too..

sometimes GOsms may block other apps receiving text messages. not sure

i'll update the app soon. it may(or may not) fix the issue.
