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

We’ve developed solid APIs for global SMS messaging and two-factor authentication, which are currently part of processes for hundreds of companies and facilitate thousands of transactions every day. Yet we aren’t stopping there. Effectively communicating with customers and securing customer account access online are two aspects of business technology we focus on. While there’s much more to business technology (much, much more,) these are the two areas which we strive to be the best.  

That’s why we keep developing our tools to address evolving needs in the areas which we specialize.

Tools to avoid breaking the budget with SMS

01 Aug 2017

Getting the most bang out of each buck in a marketing communication strategy requires solids budget estimation. Yet when the budget is broken halfway through the month, the questions arise: How did this happen? How have we sent twice as many SMS messages than we should have at this point? Well, this is where the multipart SMS comes into play.
