DhiSMS Application

It's been like a month since I started playing around with XUL, the XML User-interface Language. My aim is to make something useful using the Mozilla Application Development Framework. The XUL application will require mozilla's runtime "GRE" (Gecko Runtime Environment)

So far its been great, and I have developed the basic functionality for the my hello world application "DhiSMS". As it's name say's it's an application which will allow users to send sms using the username and password provided by Dhiraagu. It's still under development and I'm adding additional features to it like adding extensions.

Features Included in the initial release
  • Basic SMS (basic sms functionality)
  • Batch SMS (this will limit to 10 sms, as Dhiraagu only allows 10 sms per day)
  • E-Directory Search (this will be release as an extension to the application)
Releasing this application to the public might take a while as I'm learning and developing.. I will announce a release date soon. Btw if you've got any ideas please let me know.

Its good to know that there are people developing such programs, and especially in the Maldives...
Wish you luck with your project.
