New and different ways to use S4

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

App for convenience –

 

Users have suggested that a smartphone App would make it even easier to use the S4. The idea is to have a simple App on your Home screen that lets you tap the desired function and tap Send.  We are suggesting two Apps that do just that – one for Android and one for iOS --

AndroidQuick Text Pro [Device to be Version 2. 2 and above] [$0.99]

Setup --

Download Quick Text Pro and install

Add a Contact by choosing the S4 from your existing contact list.

[YourPIN is your secret 5-digit PIN. Leave space after PIN.]

Add text messages --
YourPIN gps
YourPIN status
YourPIN master
YourPIN guard
YourPIN relay on *
YourPIN relay off *

*Only needed if you have starter disable/enable installed

Suggest holding your finger on the App and moving the App to your first Home page.

Quick Text Pro

 


To use the App, just tap your S4 name, tap the message you wish, and tap Send Text Message.

The App sends the message.  When the S4 responds, the message will show briefly in the top Notification panel and the full response appears in the normal Messages screen.
