With the help of an SMS API (Application Programming Interface) the functions of a computer program (such as the bulk SMS) can be made available to another computer program (such as the notification component of a ticket booking site).
SMS API Integration is the means to integrate SMS services on your panels such as website, software, and CRM etc. SMS API Integration is thought to be the simplest way to send automated SMS directly from your defined process
APIs are automated
- APIs automate the entire way a system works, thereby reducing the errors
- APIs can help send manual customized SMS
- Integrating APIs is simple. Just visit any SMS gateway integration service provider, and copy and paste the code generated to start integrating the API
How to choose a good SMS API service provider
Make sure to compare, choose and opt from the available sources to finally choose a SMS gateway service provider that has all these features –
- User friendly SMS API admin panel
- Easy to copy and paste code
- Custom SMS integration facilities
- Reduced use of software
- SMS contact details
- Uploading of file facility
- SMS scheduling
- Sub domain feature
- Support services
API integration in iPhone is almost like we mentioned earlier – when we discussed earlier ASP.NET
How to do it?
Visit the website of an SMS API integration service provider such as BroadNet and then visit the coding page; where you can easily copy the defined codes to easily integrate into your website.
With BroadNet’s simplistic and value oriented SMS integration feature, you can easily maintain and manage your website.
//IOS SMS API integration code
NSMutableData * responseData;
NSURLConnection * connection;
// In your viewDidLoad method add this lines
//Your application url
NSString * ApiUrl = @”ApiUrl”;
//Multiple mobiles numbers separated by comma
NSString * user = @”uname”;
NSString * pass = @”******”;
NSString * mobiles = @”9999999″;
//Sender ID,While using route4 sender id should be 6 characters long.
NSString * sid = @”102234″;
//Your message to send, Add URL encoding here.
NSString * message = @”Test message”;
// Prepare your url to send sms with this parameters.
NSString * url = [[NSString stringWithFormat:@”https://broadnet.me/api/xxxxx.php?user=%@&pass=%@&mobiles=%@&message=%@&sid=%@”, user, pass, mobiles, message, sid] stringByAddingPercentEscapesUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
NSURLRequest * request = [NSURLRequest requestWithURL:[NSURL URLWithString:url]];
connection = [[NSURLConnection alloc] initWithRequest:request delegate:self];
// implement URLConnection Delegate Methods as follow
-(void) connection:(NSURLConnection *)connection didReceiveResponse:(NSURLResponse *)response
//Get response data
responseData = [NSMutableData data];
-(void) connection:(NSURLConnection *)connection didReceiveData:(NSData *)data
-(void) connection:(NSURLConnection *)connection didFailWithError:(NSError *)error
UIAlertView *alert = [[UIAlertView alloc] initWithTitle:@”Error”message:error.localizedDescription delegate:self cancelButtonTitle:nil otherButtonTitles:@”OK”, nil];
-(void) connectionDidFinishLoading:(NSURLConnection *)connection
// Get response data in NSString.
NSString * responceStr = [[NSString alloc] initWithData:responseData encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
