|Cabbage provides quick and easy use of your free web text from Irish mobile operators Meteor, O2, Vodafone, 3 and eMobile. Cabbage Ultimate and Cabbage Lite can be downloaded from the Android market
Cabbage Ultimate provides a number of features over Cabbage Lite:
- Cabbage functions as a full SMS client. It monitors incoming SMS and notifies the user as they arrive. Messages are displayed in an inbox and allows the user to view message threads from each contact
- Messages can be marked as read in the default application's inbox as they are read in Cabbage to prevent a build up of unread messages.
- Message notifications can be disabled in either Cabbage or the default SMS application to prevent having two notifications of incoming SMS
- Links are recognised in messages and clickable. The browser will launch the link.
- Incoming SMS can be forwarded to a specified number. If for whatever reason you've changed your number but still want to get messages sent to the old one, leave the sim in a phone with Cabbage installed and forward SMS to your new number using your own web text account. Forwarded messages appear to come from your own web text account so they are prefixed with the name and number of the actual message sender
- Multiple web text accounts
- Send long messages. If a message goes over the maximum allowed by your operator it will be sent in separate messages.
- Access the contacts on your device. Type a number in the recipient number text box and their number will appear in a drop down
- Send group messages. After selecting a contact just start typing the name of another and another drop down will appear. The names will be added to a comma separated list
- Recently used numbers are stored for quick access
- Send real SMS as well as web text for numbers that don't work with web text (e.g. 5xxxx numbers) or if the web text facility is unavailable
- Sent messages are stored in your default SMS application's inbox and in Cabbage itself
- Schedule a message for a future date. Scheduled messages can be cancelled through the desktop application
- Messages can be sent either via a server or directly to the network website. Sending via a server keeps data transfer to a bare minimum which keeps costs down, allowing the application to be used by those without data plans and abroad where data plans may not apply. The direct connection method is more secure but uses more data.
- A black and a white theme
