Mac Users Get New Tool For Clipping Text From Popular Applications to Mobile Phones Using SMS

(PRWEB) June 7, 2005

smsZap enables Mac users, for the first time, to clip text from popular applications and send to any mobile phone, anywhere in the world, with just a couple of mouse clicks.

Bayham Systems today announced the immediate availability of smsZap 1.0.0, a powerful tool for Mac OS 10.3 (Panther) and 10.4 (Tiger) systems. After installing smsZap, users can select text from within their favourite applications (e.g. Apple Mail, Safari and Microsoft Entourage), press the key combination Shift, Command, ‘W’, and be prompted to choose to send the text to their own phone, select a number from their Apple Address Book, or type in a new number.

smsZap does not have to already be running on the Mac in order to take advantage of the services it offers. However by double-clicking the application icon, smsZap’s interactive mode allows a text message to be typed in directly. It also provides a real-time message tracking screen where sent messages can be checked for delivery status (this screen can be used to tell whether a message has actually been delivered to the handset or if it is still in the network).

A key feature of smsZap is that a mobile phone does not have to be connected to or synced with the Mac to make this work. Instead messages are sent via the Internet to the smsZap Service Centre, where they are then passed to the mobile networks. Messages can be delivered to 471 mobile networks across 165 countries.

Consider these scenarios: have you ever had to run out the office for a meeting but forgot to print in advance those “how to find us” instructions? No need to wait for the printer to warm up, simply select the text, press the smsZap key combination, and choose “Send to My Phone”. Or have you spotted an alert on your favourite news site that you just have to tell a friend about? Then select the text and choose the “Send to Another Number” option, and pick your friend’s number from the Address Book.

“smsZap is a great tool to have on your Mac,” said Bill Turley, Director of Channel Marketing for Bayham Systems. “Whether you are a business user looking to communicate with colleagues and customers, or a home user simply keeping in touch with friends and family, the ‘clip’ feature is a massive productivity enhancer and the low cost messaging will save a small fortune on your phone bill.”

Additionally smsZap provides:

Significant savings on national and international SMS messaging.

Ability to choose your own “Sender Identifier”. Use your own mobile phone number so that any replies will be sent to your handset, or enter a name, perhaps useful for branding an official company announcement.

Only a 276 KB download that uses minimal hard disk space, and will go unnoticed from a CPU / memory usage point of view.

Bayham Systems also revealed that it is in discussion with some service providers and mobile operators to license smsZap as a white label product in order to support their drive to increase SMS messaging and bring their brand to the desktop.

smsZap is a freeware application. Messages can be sent in exchange for credits which can be purchased on the smsZap website.

South Florida-based AppsBar Reaches New Milestone With Over 400,000 Users Creating Professional Quality Mobile Applications

Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

AppsBar has recently reached yet another milestone having surpassed 400,000 users to make the company the #1 app builder in the world.

The free app making wizard designed by AppsBar has changed the way apps are developed, making it easy for virtually anyone to create a mobile application. They have taken ordinary people from all over the world, some with technical knowledge and some without, and showed them how to build their own app.

Scott Hirsch, Founder and President of AppsBar, says the mobile app revolution should not be confined to large corporations.

Billions of downloads are happening right now, said Hirsch. Why should only large companies be able to participate in this tech media phenomenon? Millions of people every day go to iTunes, Google Play, and other sites to search for apps. Why should small businesses or individuals be excluded from this customer base?

On April 27, 2011 Hirsch launched AppsBar, a platform that allows people to build their own app for free without programming or technical experience. The intuitive step-by-step wizard makes it as easy to create an app as it is to create a Facebook page. AppsBar users also have the benefit of a full-time App Coach to help with the process.

AppsBar is unique in that it helps you create an app for any device or platform, including the iPhone, Android, and tablets. Users dont have to choose one device and be limited to only that device. More importantly, the apps being created are actually being launched and used. Since April 2011, there have been 20 million app launches using AppsBar.

AppsBar has established its own free app market called, which includes all apps built within AppsBar, as well as others. AppCatch allows users to download any app from any device or tablet for free, with no restrictions. AppsBar also allows any app developer to upload their app for free, and to be part of a booming apps market.

The range of users for AppsBar goes across the demographic spectrum from political parties, civil rights organizations, celebrities such as Don King, teachers, professors, and law firms, to churches and synagogues, non-profits and charities, restaurants, little leagues, travel agencies, accountants, bands and musicians, and more.

We need to democratize the app world and level the playing field, said Hirsch. We need to allow people with an entrepreneurial spirit to build an app for their business, without program or technical experience. The demand for apps is growing and they have only scratched the surface. Over one million new smartphones are being sold every day. The market is limitless.

Launched in 2011, Appsbar opens up the mobile marketing category for small and medium-size businesses, artists and musicians, and individuals who want to create in that space. Appsbar has done this by removing the two largest barriers; cost and programming expertise. Appsbar is doing for mobile apps what companies like Intuit and Blogger have done for novices looking to publish websites and blogs.
