Schedule Text Messages with Seebye Scheduler
Are you the kind of person who likes to plan out and schedule your social interactions with other people? Do you compose long messages, only to wait for precisely the right time to hit send? Are you in search of an application to help you map out and schedule future text messages to your contacts? Well, if you’ve said “yes” to any of the above, you’ll be happy to know that there is now a handy app to help you do this, and we’ll even refrain from casting judgement on your social skills—for now.
All jokes aside, there are plenty of reasons why sane, non-stalker individuals would benefit from scheduled text messages. For example, if you are asking a friend to do you a favor at a later time, you could schedule a message to send a friendly reminder. Thankfully, the root-enabled Seebye Schedule by XDA Forum Member seebye can do precisely this.
Seebye Scheduler works with the popular WhatsApp and Viber messaging apps. Seebye allows you to schedule text and image messages. In addition to simply sending individual messages, Seebye also allows you to automate future messages on a predefined schedule. And if you are messaging many users, you can even personalized the pending messages with various strings such as “%name%” to add the name of the recipient.
Naturally, you must have root access in order for this app to work. If you’ve been looking for a tool to help you automate your mobile messaging, head over to the application thread and give Seebye Scheduler a shot.
