Receive an SMS?

I have seen some suggestions about sending an SMS (Nexmo, etc.), but is there a way to intercept and parse an SMS message? Thanks.

You’ll need to use a PhoneGap plugin, like this:

It’s Android only.


Thanks for the reply; that appears to be just what I need, but I’m not sure about how to include it into an app.

I have never had any success in using any of the PhoneGap examples, so I am obviously not setting up those plugins properly. Are there any documents that can help me to configure AppStudio to use those plugins?

Thanks and best regards,


There’s this Tech Note which may help:

Thanks a lot, I had just found and read that article. There is some great information there. However, I received this error when trying to compile as a native app with PhoneGap:

Is there a limit to the number of applications that can be compiled?

I appreciate your offer to provide some code to get me started–it would be very helpful.

Thanks and best regards,


There is a problem with the default account which AppStudio uses. We’re working on sorting that out with PhoneGap.

You can workaround this by signing up for a free PhoneGap account of your own.
