We launched Autofare app on the txtWeb platform back in Mar 2011. We were happy to have one of the most used features on Suruk (Route Finder) integrated with an SMS platform. The instant catching up of the app on the store and exceptionally high usage made one thing very clear to us “a simple and quick way to getting concise information is a huge value-add for users”.
Support extended by txtWeb has been exceptional, they featured Auto fare as “App of the Week” and wrote at length in their facebook/twitter pages thereby helping us get huge traction. Thanks to the platform, we quickly built three more apps (@locatetrain, @pyka, and @bmtcroute) in no time. The txtWeb platform is a very well envisaged product, being agnostic to programming languages, seamless integration with existing web-apps, and ability to easily extend an “SMS arm” to any of your web-apps. And to top it all, it requires no learning to newer technology or installation of libraries/SDKs – it’s a developer’s dream to work with such a platform.
We and other developers on this platform have suggested many additional feature sets and requirements. We sincerely hope the text web team takes note of it and takes it forward Also we would like to extend our sincere thanks to Srividhya Ramarathram, Manish Maheshwari, Shantanu Deshmukh, and the geeks in house Srinivasan Narayan a.k.a Srini and Aritra Ghosh for their continuous encouragement and support.
Got an idea that can give value to tons of users via SMS? Get Started immediately. Before writing the blog, I thought I will give a short overview on how to get started on txtWeb, but in fact, txtWeb is so simple that no tutorial or help blog post is required to get on-board.
