GoldSMS is a new and innovative app that lets you send bulk SMS in Nigeria.
The app was developed by Cybergold Integrated Solutions, an ICT company based in Benin, founded by Efosa Edokpolo.
Bulk SMS in Nigeria has become a very popular trend as it makes it possible for individuals and organizations to reach a larger number of mobile subscribers at a time, at an affordable cost.
Now with the help of the GoldSMS application available on Blackberry, iPhone, Android and Nokia smartphones, you can send those bulk SMSes with ease.
The app provides an alternative way of solving basic SMS needs while on the go. With this app on your phone, you don’t need to get on the internet anytime you want to send a Bulk SMS.
The simple design and integration with your phonebook makes sending and replying to messages much easier.
You can also download text files containing multiple phone numbers to your handheld device and use the BULK command on the app to send the message.
Other likely features coming soon are display of contact pictures for a conversation and extra customization options.
The app allows you send SMS to friends and contacts in your phone book.
You can also import a text file containing destination numbers from your phone, save them for reuse later.
The app lets you schedule messages to be sent later at a specific time, whether you’re online or not.
With its cool search functionality, you can search for sent messages by date.
With the app, you can receive delivered reports in a specified e-mail address.
The app is available for download here.
This is quite an amazing application and a unique boost to the growing Bulk SMS market in Nigeria.
Although I’m not a huge fan of bulk smsing, particularly because they can be easily regarded as spam, I reckon that it helps small businesses and marketers reach a wider audience.
However, if only bulk SMSes can be geo-targeted to a particular location or demography, it’ll add more value.
Perhaps that’s a feature that GoldSMS and other future apps should be looking at in their next versions.
