For non-developers, don’t be frightened by “API”. It is actually very easy, and I am going to guide you in the following 3 steps.
1) Register Hoiio
If you have not done so, register for Hoiio first. Don’t worry, it is free, and even comes with US$8 credits!
2) Create your App
Create an app from the developer portal. When you create an app, you will be given an App ID and Access Token (screenshot). Copy that down for Step 3.
3) Enter URL into your browser
You need to form up the URL. Gather these 4 pieces of information
- app_id: From step 2
- access_token: From step 2
- dest: The phone number to send to
- msg: The SMS message
If you want to send “Hoiio World” (msg) to +6590000000 (dest), the URL will look like the following:
Edit the URL with your 4 pieces of information, then copy & paste into your web browser.
Tada~ The SMS will be sent!
