2008 / Maemoified SMPY

Maemoified SMPY

The Maemoified SMPY is a SMS sending tool for Nokia Internet Tablets. It derives from the Desktop smpy, which itself derives from smp.

There is now a special page devoted to my Maemo work, see Maemo 2008.

  • Multiple receivers with one SMS
  • Enter number manually for sending
  • Receiver groups (for mass SMSing)
