The GO SMS Pro app is sort of like an all-in-one social media message manager that allows you to link the app to a variety of social networking chats and customize your chat while accessing its features a lot easier than typically might be the case by going with individual sites.

Reviewing the Android GO SMS Pro App

Just imagine that you're using the Facebook chat to speak with some of your friends, but since you have the GO SMS Pro app, you can actually use your Android mobile device to draw on the screen and to send customized chat messages that none of your other friends have. Not that you would want to get this app just to be the envy of all your friends, but you certainly would be. Of course, there are other functions that might come in handy. For instance, you can use this as a cross-platform app, simultaneously chatting on different social networks without having to keep the physical social pages up. You can pretty much manage them all from right there with your app. Another cool feature of this app is that you can actually pre-program it so that it sends messages when you want them, and to whom you want to receive them. Additional features work to keep you informed about things, messaging you when your friends or online, or giving you backups of all your conversations, etc. Along with getting to customize the screen here, this is a pretty cool app.

Another demographic that might get use out of this app would be multimedia marketers who specialize in social media. By using this app, they can use one application to send a wide variety of messages across multiple platforms, to multiple people, at programmed times, and it can all be done for free, since there's no cost in downloading this app.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
  • CALL_PHONE: Allows an application to initiate a phone call without going through the Dialer user interface for the user to confirm the call.
  • CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device.
  • GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.
  • READ_CALL_LOG: Allows an application to read the user's call log.
  • READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • READ_PHONE_STATE: Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.
  • READ_SMS: Allows an application to read SMS messages.
  • RECEIVE_MMS: Allows an application to monitor incoming MMS messages.
  • RECEIVE_SMS: Allows an application to receive SMS messages.
  • RECEIVE_WAP_PUSH: Allows an application to receive WAP push messages.
  • RECORD_AUDIO: Allows an application to record audio.
  • SEND_SMS: Allows an application to send SMS messages.
  • WRITE_CONTACTS: Allows an application to write the user's contacts data.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • BROADCAST_STICKY: Allows an application to broadcast sticky intents. These are broadcasts whose data is held by the system after being finished, so that clients can quickly retrieve that data without having to wait for the next broadcast.
  • CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to change network connectivity state.
  • CHANGE_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to change Wi-Fi connectivity state.
  • DISABLE_KEYGUARD: Allows applications to disable the keyguard if it is not secure.
  • GET_TASKS: This constant was deprecated in API level 21. No longer enforced.
  • INSTALL_SHORTCUT: Allows an application to install a shortcut in Launcher.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS: Allows an application to modify global audio settings.
  • PERSISTENT_ACTIVITY: This constant was deprecated in API level 9. This functionality will be removed in the future; please do not use. Allow an application to make its activities persistent.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • RESTART_PACKAGES: This constant was deprecated in API level 8. The restartPackage(String) API is no longer supported.
  • SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. Very few apps should use this permission; these windows are intended for system-level interaction with the user.
  • VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
  • android.permission.INSTALL_DRM
  • android.permission.WRITE_SMS
  • com.android.vending.BILLING
  • com.google.android.c2dm.permission.RECEIVE
  • com.jb.gosms.permission.C2D_MESSAGE
  • com.jb.gosms.permission.SERVICE
  • com.jb.gosms.permission.provider.CHAT_INFO_ACCESS
