Bryley Basics: Apps that send an “I’m busy” text from an Android phone
You can’t always be there to respond when you receive a text, but you might want to send an automated “I have received your text” message; much like an “out of office” email response. You can even setup a schedule that provides a response that switches on when your calendar shows a current meeting and switches off after the meeting ends.
Two Android applications, each of them $2.99, accomplish this task:
- Tasker by Crafty Apps EU – 4.6* rating and over 500,000 downloads
- Trigger by Egomotion – 4.2* rating and over 1,000,000 downloads
Both apps are available at GooglePlay.
