I’ve been playing around recently with the Chikka SMS API and i’m amazed on how easy it is to integrate the API on your existing apps or try the API by creating a small app that would simulate it. That is exactly what i did with ChikkaFox.
ChikkaFox is an open source app in Firefox OS that would let you send SMS to any mobile phone number.
All you need to do is to add your api info into the following variables in main.js:
var sCode = “”; // Short code
var cID = “”; // Client ID
var sKey = “” // Secret Key
To test the app, you have to format a mobile number by adding: +639XXXXXXXXX.
Message ID is used to track a request status. You can put any numbers you like for testing. (Example: 01)
The great thing about the Chikka SMS API is that you can buy airtime credits using your SMART Prepaid load and the minimum package you can avail is only 100 pesos (Up to 250 SMS). Talk about convenience and affordability.
