Whenever we are signed into our instant messaging client and are busy with some other program or task, we set our instant messaging status as “busy” to indicate that we should not be disturbed. Until now there was no equivalent feature for cellphone users. But “Don’t Text Me” changes that.
Don’t Text Me is a nifty application for iDevices (iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad) that, after getting a tap from you, sends your contacts a auto reply text messages telling them that you are busy
(driving, in a meeting, in class, or out for dinner) and should not be disturbed with text messages at the moment.
Users who are easily distracted by text messages (drivers in particular) will find this tool very helpful. You can also control whom not to send the “busy” message to by sending it to a group of contacts rather than our entire phonebook.
iPod and iPad users can use Don’t Text Me because it uses WiFi. Messages are to contacts in the U.S. only.
- Reduces the chance of you being disturbed by text messages.
- Has more than one message option to choose from i.e. multiple messages can be set to be sent later.
- Users can specify which group of contacts to send the message to.
- In addition to iPhone, it works on iPod Touch and iPad as well.
