Infinite SMS shut down by Google?
What happenned to Infinite SMS? This very popular SMS application appears to be MIA and a post on the official Infinite SMS website indicates that Google has indeed blocked their access to the Google SMS Gateway.
Google’s official statement:
“Infinite SMS is a third party app that has been using Google technology to provide free SMS for users, while we were paying for the cost of the text messages. While Google is supportive of third party apps, we’ve decided we can’t support this particular usage of our system at this time. SMS chat is still just an experiment in the early testing stages in Gmail Labs. We’re blocking all external XMPP clients from sending SMS; we’re not singling out Inner Fence.”
As for Infinite SMS alternatives, stay tuned as we are working to put together some suggestions. Infinite SMS has been a very popular app, in fact its been our most popular review, so we can see a heavy demand for this type of thing. We’ll do some looking and offer up some alternatives in a day or two.
