Feature Suggestions for PinkNotes® v5

Character Count - for mobile messages

Postby TBG » Tue Nov 25, 2008 7:47 am

Many cellular carriers limit the number of characters sent to mobile phones as text messages. Verizon wireless trunkates the message after 160 characters. It would be a great reminder to the user/sender if the number of characters could be displayed on the PinkNotes screen. The number of characters displayed should include the words selected on the PinkNotes form (i.e. Subject...Name...came to see you... etc.) as these are displayed in the text message. It would be even better if the number of characters allowed could be pre-set for in the PinkNotes settings, whereby PinkNotes could break up longer messages into multiple/continous messages for maximum efficiency with the loss of information.

Richard - Welcome to the forums and thanks for the great suggestion. This will certainly be added to the "The List" for PinkNotes v5. Luckily I do not believe development of the mobile features has begun yet, so we may be able to squeeze this in there before it's too late. Stay tuned to this forum thread (perhaps you can subscribe to it) for updates on this feature.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
