PhoneLeash 2.0 RELEASED!
Folks - I just uploaded 2.0 to Google Play. It took waaaay longer than I expected, but hopefully it proves to be as easy-to-use and rock-solid as I tried to make it.
The BIG feature is that now everyone with an email account can reply remotely to SMS since PhoneLeash has a C2DM server! No more email-to-SMS address which most of the world doesn't have anyway.
[C2DM has its issues, since so many things can affect the data connection on a phone, plus Google's idiosyncracies. The PhoneLeash server will be tracking how long it takes for messages to reach phones, so I can anticipate problems.]
The other BIG feature is getting SMS-sent confirmations back from the phone. Sometimes, the phone is not nearby and you have a nagging feeling maybe the reply didn't make it. Now, just suffix //// to your message and you'll get a confirm back.
For email users, the server has smarts to detect quoted (original) text, so if you reply normally you should see only your reply getting sent.
Some embedded help, plus email-help upon app first launch. Docs and website work in progress.
