Free SMS Length Calculator Libraries

- 5 MIN READ - 15 Jun 2015

Let's admit it - sms length calculation is complicated. This is why we made an open-source SMS length calculator library.

You can download our free sms length calculator libraries from our github repository: https://github.com/messente/sms-length-calculator

It is just fresh out of the oven and may be rough around edges. Feel free to fork it, send us pull requests to make it better or even add new libraries for different languages.

Currently there are libraries for Java and PHP but we try to add more languages as we go.

Oh, and I did I say it was totally free? Check out quick summary for Apache Licence 2.0 just in case.

Don't forget that there is also an online version of SMS length calculator that you can check out on http://messente.com/documentation/sms-length-calculator

A note on keeping things real

17 Apr 2018

Over the years, I've had the good fortune of talking to and doing business with many entrepreneurs and CEOs from a variety of industries. Some are first-time founders of small startups, while others are amazingly experienced serial entrepreneurs. Many of them are extremely successful in what they do.

So naturally, while listening to them talk about their businesses, I've always tried to spot any fundamental takeaways –the small drops of universal business advice distilled from those hundreds of conversations.

And it seems to me that a lot of the most profound business truths seem to point to a direction that I would call, "keeping it real.”

Over the last few months we’ve been setting the direction of our Omnichannel messaging API and our development team has started working on it. Considering transparency, we wanted to share the progress we’ve made on the API and give our clients something to look forward to, as well as helping clients prepare their systems for the next generation of our A2P messaging API.

You're protected from the pitfalls of grey routes

03 Apr 2018

“Grey routes” is a loosely used term in the telecommunications industry. Frankly, the industry-specific meaning of grey routes is useless to most of our clients. Brands and businesses send messages to their customers and they expect those messages to be delivered, which is what our SMS API does well.

However, it’s important to understand the premise of grey routes, because they affect SMS service quality, an important topic to us and we hope is important to businesses that use A2P SMS APIs.
