How to Schedule Text Messages in Android


As we are all living in a very busy world, we miss a lot of important things. With the works at office, school and home we forget the dates and thereby miss out a lot of birthdays, functions or many such events. To remember such things we usually do set reminders but how many of us get time to check out the phones when we are loaded with works? 

We sometimes don’t even get a chance to take the phone out of our bags or pockets. What comes to be worse in such a situation is when you forget to send any messages to someone and it turns out to be a disaster. We will definitely fall in a trouble when we don’t send a birthday wish at 12 to our loved ones. Though you might remember the birthday but then with other works you get delayed to message or sometimes you might even fall asleep.


So for these you will have no excuse. Not only that, but because of busy schedule you might forget to send any important official messages too.
