Auto Forward SMS has been around since 2015, when we had a very basic version on Google Play. After tweaking the app, and starting to get some serious downloads, we started getting more feedback and suggestions from customers. So, we decided to get serious and make a robust app that would improve productivity and save time for our customers.
Below you'll find our updates from Feb 2019 onwards. Many of our features are thanks to our customers' suggestions, so if you have a request, we'd love to hear from you!
