Claiming Smartphone Ignorance

Sometimes it isn’t the phone’s fault. Sometimes it can just be more difficult to communicate on the go or with such a small device.

Matthew Goldfarb of Corporate Renegade has a signature that jokes, “sent from my almost always misspelling iPhone.”

Becky McCray, co-author of Small Town Rules, contributes one used by Sheila Scarborough, of Sheila’s Guide. It says, “Sent from my phone;  if there are typos I will still be quite annoyed at myself.”

Even Small Business Trends’ own Chief Operations Officer, Staci Wood, has joked about creating a mobile email signature to highlight her minimal smartphone knowledge.  She said if she could figure out how, she’d change hers to: “Apologies for any spelling errors – sent from my stupid ‘smart’ phone.”

What Is The Length Of The Text I Can Send On My Android Phone?

Sending texts via SMS requires that the text does not exceed 160 character limits. However, when your text exceeds this limit, SMS breaks down and send your text in batches based on the character length. 

How Can I Access And Read Received Text Messages On My Android Phone?

Your device will notify you when you receive a text message. There are two options to read received text messages.

Option 1:

  1. New messages are displayed in the notification area; swipe down from the top of your device’s screen to reveal your ‘notifications.’
  2. Scroll through your notifications to ‘New message.’
  3. Tap on the ‘New message’ to open and read.

Option 2

  1. Tap on the ‘Messages’ icon on your phone’s home screen, or from your device’s app list.
  2. Open the received message. 

Intent Object – Action to send SMS

You will use ACTION_VIEW action to launch an SMS client installed on your Android device. Following is simple syntax to create an intent with ACTION_VIEW action.

Random Acts of Email Taglines

Just because you have a smartphone with access to email doesn’t necessarily mean you should have to respond to every single thing right away.  Ramon Ray of SmallBizTechnology.com has a mobile signature that says, “from my phone (hopefully not while I’m driving or with my family).”  It pokes fun at the over-reliance many Americans have on their mobile devices. But it also lets contacts know that there are times he may not be able to respond right away.

Joel Libava, who has created a trademarked brand around the moniker “The Franchise King” manages to continue the brand emphasis in his email tagline.  His reads, “The Franchise King®, Joel Libava, sent this from his Royal Droid.”

Brent Leary, technology analyst, conveys that he’s an equal-opportunity technology user. His tagline says,  “Sent from my BlackBerry, … or iPhone.., or iPad… or… well you get the idea … .”

Using the Android intent resolver

Screenshot of ACTION_SEND intent resolver.

The Android intent resolver is best used when sending data to another app as part of a well-defined task flow.

To use the Android intent resolver, create an intent and add extras as you would if you were to call the Android Sharesheet. However, do not call Intent.createChooser().

If there are multiple installed applications with filters that match ACTION_SEND and the MIME type, the system displays a disambiguation dialog called the intent resolver that allows the user to choose a target to share to. If a single application matches it will be run.

Here is an example of how to use the Android intent resolver to send text:

Kotlin val sendIntent: Intent = Intent().apply { action = Intent.ACTION_SEND putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, “This is my text to send.”) type = “text/plain” } startActivity(sendIntent) Java Intent sendIntent = new Intent(); sendIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_SEND); sendIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, “This is my text to send.”); sendIntent.setType(“text/plain”); startActivity(sendIntent);
