Default Server Url

When the application first starts the target URL for the Rest API is our example page: http://forward-sms-to-rest-api.com/sms-example.php If you just want to test that SMS forwarding is working from your phone you can leave the "example" url as is and activate the APP. Then send a message to yourself and browse to http://forward-sms-to-rest-api.com/sms-example.txt There you will see the last message that was sent to your phone. Make sure you change this URL to your own API server

Why this App is not in App Google Play?

Google have changed their policy about apps that need to recive text messages. This kind of app no longer can exist in google play because google demands that this app will be the default SMS handler which is not logical.
When you have a web site that sends text messages and you want to process the responses of the clients you may need this kind of app. A good example (legitimate example) for a use case is as follows:

1. You are a wedding manager and you send text messages to potential guests for the wedding to check if they plan on coming or not.
2. You want to process the responses programatically and not manualy, so you need to get the responses to your web site.
