Not everything is meant for right now. There are so many times I find myself working on something, but realize I have to send it sometime later. Maybe I want to space out tweets, or maybe it’s an email I know will go over better if sent 7 a.m. than 9 p.m. Whatever the reason, I’m sure you’d like the ability to schedule outgoing messages as well. Thankfully, there’s a BlackBerry app that takes care of all that. It’s called Future Scheduler, and unlike other future scheduling apps, it covers all of your messaging needs.
The most common need for scheduling future messages is email. As mentioned above, timing matters in many instances. Maybe you want to signal to someone that you’re busy and can’t respond right away.
Maybe you want to impress your boss by showing you burn the candles at both ends. Or maybe you know that someone will see an email at a certain time, but that time isn’t now. Whatever the case, I’m always pining to send an email at a future time. Future Scheduler takes care of that lickety split, without any hassle. You can also do this with text messages, which is great when you want to text someone and it’s past his or her bedtime.
Trust me, my wife appreciates that I can write a message and have it delivered after she’s awake the next morning. You can even schedule tweets and Facebook updates, which is great if you don’t want to bombard people with a lot of updates at once. Some people are turned off by that. Here’s the cool part: you can even schedule a phone call.
Hey, it ensures that you’re not going to forget, which is nice. Though a simple calendar entry, with an alarm, reminding you of the call seems to make a bit more sense. Still, at least the option is there. If you want to start scheduling messages and status updates for future times, you can get FutureScheduler at App World for two bucks.
