Send SMS automatic

    You might be able to in Android, at the very least you will have to ask permission (so they will know this can happen), there's no way Apple will let you though. I mean think about it, for many people sending an SMS still costs money, would you want an app that's automatically running up a bill in the background?

    Thank you very much for the reply. That's right, the idea is to create a panic button that when you press the phone will send messages to different people. the message application should not open at all, it is here when the person will not intervene by pressing the "send message" button but should only press the panic button.
