EirText Pro allows VoIP service subscribers to use their iPhone iPad, or iPod Touch to send their free or cheap SMS text messages directly from their handset.
Eitext Pro 4.0 was launched yesterday, and features a number of updates and improved functionality. The ability to multitask with iOS 4 alongside task completion in makes Eirtext even easier to use. Sending free messages on your iPhone has gotten even easier!
With Eirtext Pro you no longer need to wait while the app routes the message to your provider for sending, which usually takes a bit longer than a normal SMS message. Now, once you send your message you can switch out of the application (iOS4 required) and the message will be sent in the background! Ace! The layout has been improved, and you can use multiple accounts on the application with ease, with support for groups now added.
Additionally text messages sent using this update seem to be processed much much faster. We tested service provider o2.ie – and so far so good!
Applications like these is what makes iOS4 worth having, we hope to see more applications making good use of the iOS4. We have yet to try the iPad version, but will review at a later stage.
