WM Software

WM New:

SMS-Chat v1.1

VITO Technology has released a new version of SMS-Chat. SMS-Chat has the popular threaded messaging, and the new version has cool animated smiles.

A feature in the previous version of SMS-Chat that was very popular was the ability to click hyperlinks to open in the browser, clicking a phone number to place a call, and clicking e-mail to send a letter. However, you needed to click SMS to get to the menu buttons to then choose the desired action. In the new version of SMS-Chat, you only need to click the highlighted text and SMS-Chat will automatically detect the desired action of placing a call, sending an e-mail or opening the link in the browser.

The updated version includes two skins, a bright skin and a dark skin. Plus minor bugs from the previous version have been fixed.


  • Threaded SMS messaging
  • Finger-friendly interface
  • Multiple SMS sending
  • Forward, resend or delete messages
  • Full screen notification for new messages
  • Animated smilies
  • Chronological sorting of chats
  • Characters counter
