SmsMachine is a fully customizeable SMS answering machine for your smartphone. You can predefine any number of response messages automatically sent to people sending you SMS. There are custom responses for persons from contacts, for groups of persons from contacts, for custom phone numbers, default response, black list, profiles selection, message templates, tight interaction with Contacts and Messaging applications, handy log, etc, etc...

How to get started

SmsMachine is designed to serve as an "out of office assistant" and it automatically sends an SMS reply to a received SMS.

There are 2 views in the program: Main View and Log.

Main view

In this view you can turn SmsMachine on and off. When SmsMachine is off it doesn't reply to any messages.

When it's on you can see how many incoming SMS's you had, and how many of them were replied by SMSMachine.

Note: you can close SmsMachine application any time, but if it's activated it will work in the background anyway. To stop the program completely you should deactivate it before closing.

Here you can define and fully customize your responses. There are 3 types of rules.

Black list: here you can define the list of correspondents you don't want to respond to with SmsMachine. If this rule is activated then when SmsMachine gets a message from anyone it will try to find this person in the black list first, and no response will be sent if found.

Default: here you can define a message sent if no custom messages are found (if default rule is activated). If no custom message is found and the default rule is not activated then no response will be sent.

Custom: you can define as many custom responses as you want. In custom response you can link correspondents with custom message. So, for your relatives you can set up one response message, for your colleagues another one, etc.

Small resume, when SmsMachine gets a message it will:

1) try to find a sender in black list if black list rule is activated. If found then no responses will be sent. Otherwise..

2) try to find a custom response for this sender browsing through activated custom responses. If found it will send the corresponded response message. Otherwise..

3) if Default rule is activated then a default message will be sent, if it's not then no message will be sent.

Well, and that's not all! For your convenience we have defined "Profiles". Each profile can have its own default, black list and any number of custom rules! So you can switch between the whole group of your defined responses easily. For example you can have one set of responses when you're going to sleep, when you're on meeting, etc ... It depends on you how SmsMachine will look and act .

Adding custom response

For each custom response you want to set up you should name it, define the response message, and define the senders assigned to this message.

Response message - you should type message text here. You can get it from templates as well. Existing message can be added to templates to be used later.

Correspondents. You can use person(s) selected from Contacts, groups of persons from Contacts or custom phone numbers as correspondents .

Please note: if you insert the same person in some custom responses, SmsMachine will use the first found activated response rule with this person included.

Log view

Here you can see the full description of SmsMachine activity, when and from whom there was an incoming SMS, when and to whom the auto responses were sent.


- Incoming SMS

- Sent response

Behind the screen:

  • SmsMachine sends only one reply to each number during the session. This helps to avoid the continued SMS loop between two devices equipped with SmsMachine. New session begins when you turn SmsMachine on and ends when you turn it off.

  • In order to save disk space SmsMachine automatically deletes sent messages from "Sent folder". All information about sent responses you can find in SmsMachine Log view.
