“Stop dreaming. Be a Pioneer.” From October 30 to October 31 the Pioneers Festival took place at Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna, Austria. The event had a clear focus – start-ups and innovative technologies. This year about 2.500 people were part of the event and the mysms team was right in the middle of it.
mysms was part of it
We were very proud to present mysms to all pioneers on the first day of the festival. At our own showroom we shared our passion for mysms with lots of interested people. The demonstration of mysms’ functionality was stunning experience for the community.
Sharing our passion
Besides our showroom we had the chance to listen to speakers like Chris Barton (Shazam), Eric Migicovsky (Pebble) or Adam Cheyer (Siri) in the stunning halls of the Hofburg Imperial Palace. Moreover we had a look at some other great start-ups and innovations and were also at the After Party, of course 😉
A great event!
In a nutshell: The Pioneers Festival 2013 was simply awesome. Not only the amazing atmosphere of the location, but also the inspiring attendees and speakers made the event very special.
We’re very looking forward to be part of it again next year!

Google released the newest version of its operating system last week: Android 4.4 KitKat is out! It comes with improvements and great new features. However, that means that we also need to adapt our mysms app to the changes.
If you’re already on the latest Android version and using mysms, you’re probably experiencing some issues. mysms is currently not working smoothly using Android 4.4. But we’re already working on an update which should be available soon.
Sorry for the inconveniences. We’ll keep you up to date on our social media channels (Google+, Twitter, Facebook, Get Satisfaction).
Update (November 07): Today we released the first update for Android KitKat. mysms is working smoothly now on Android 4.4.

We’re very excited to share our latest news with you: mysms integrates with Dropbox and Google Drive and adds forwarding texts to email. This enables you to archive your incoming and outgoing messages to keep them safe anytime.
Archive your messages
With mysms your messages are saved in the mysms cloud and available on any device. One year ago we announced our partnership with the note-taking app Evernote to provide you with the possibility to search, manage and archive your messages. As we have received a lot of positive feedback, we decided to open up our platform other cloud-based services to give you the choice where you want to store your messages. The integration of Dropbox, Google Drive and email should make it even more convenient to manage your texts and multimedia messages. Your messages can be searched immediately and will stay in the message archive even if your mobile phone gets lost or undergoes a factory reset.
How it works:
In mysms on your phone and on the web you’ll find the setting “Dropbox, GDrive, Evernote, Email”, which allows you to connect your mysms account to one of these services. After the successful connection you are ready to go. From this time all your new incoming and outgoing messages will be archived in your Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote or your email account.
If you need help with the set up or in case you have further questions, contact us here.
We’re very curious about what you think of this integration. Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

We love sharing our greatest moments as pictures via mysms. How about you? Until one of the latest updates, every single photo had to be opened separately to watch it full screen. So the view of multiple pics was kind of annoying for some of you. That’s why we provide you with this news 🙂
Swipe left and right to view the pics
Showing your friends where you are and what you experience at this very moment is very easy with mysms. The cool thing is that the attachments are sent via a link. So if you send them via your mobile carrier, you will only get charged as usual for an SMS instead of an MMS.
Since one of the latest updates, multiple pictures are shown in an album on mysms for Android phone. That means you don’t need to open each file separately. Simply open one picture and swipe to the left or right to view the other ones.
We hope you like that improvement!
With the latest update mysms for iPhone is completely ready for iOS 7. The functionality has already been updated since the new version of the operating system, but now the design of the app has been refreshed in order to fit to the new, cool and simple look of iOS 7.
Here are some pictures to get to know what has changed during the last update:
The overview is completely redesigned. Even the menu icons on the bottom have gone and a new sidebar has come.

The message view comes with adapted bubbles and the new keyboard:

And of course also every other view got a new look:
