smsZap sends SMS messages
Bayham Systems today released , an application that allows users to quickly send text (as an SMS message) to any mobile phone. Users can simply highlight text, press a key combination (Shift + Command + 'W') and send the next to a number from the Apple Address Book (or other custom number). Users can also manually enter SMS messages; smsZap provides realtime message tracking (with information on delivery status): the messages are sent via the Internet to the smsZap Service Centre, where they are then passed to any one of 471 mobile networks across 165 countries. The application is free and runs on Mac OS X Panther/Tiger. Pricing starts at $26 for 500 credits (a single SMS can be sent for 3-5 credits).
