smsETH is an open source client for the SMS Gateway of the ETH Zurich for the Android platform. It has a basic interface to compose new SMS messages and send them over the SMS Gateway.

smsETH supports multiple receivers. If it's not possible to send the message over the gateway, the app provides a method to send the message over the phone. The messages which have been sent are stored in the SMS directory of the phone. In order to use this software you must have a n.ethz account (students and employees of the ETH Zurich). The n.ethz log-in data are safely stored on the phone and securely transmitted directly to the gateway over a https connection.

Important: Starting from October 1, 2010 a service fee is charged for an SMS. An SMS within Switzerland costs 0.05 CHF, an SMS to a foreign country costs 0.15 CHF.
