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

How we help with the regulations of global messaging

26 Jun 2017

Forgoing the need to integrate network operators everywhere you need messages delivered is one of the main advantages of using a global messaging platform. Each connection includes legalities, which includes reviewing several agreements and negotiating terms, and technical tasks, like setting up the connections. So, a single company going through this process on their own would invest a lot of time doing things that have already been done by a messaging platform. Also, the company would end up with higher pricing from network operators, as it has much less traffic.

Your sales lab time is scarce

20 Jun 2017

In the series about sales research, I touched upon allocating about 30% of your research time on finding new ideas and possibilities around sales tactics. But how do you actually do it and what do you look for?

An open letter to financial institutions from Yuriy

09 Jun 2017

To the bank, credit card company, and investment firm I work with: I trust you. I really do.

If I didn’t, I wouldn’t put my hard-earned money in your hands. While I’m not a Certified Financial Analyst, I am financially savvy, so I understand that we have a mutually beneficial relationship. From a high-level, banks use the money I deposit to sell loans and invest in other financial instruments. Credit card companies make money on interest charges, other fees, and transaction fees from merchants. The brokerage firm makes money through fees on my account. On the other hand, all I expect is that you are honest about your services, provide returns, and keep my money safe.
