Auto Reply To Text Messages & Incoming Calls On Your Android Phone

At times, especially while driving, when one is just too busy to be taking calls or replying to text messages, there are several Android apps on the market that can cover for you. However, not all apps from said category autoreply to both text messages and calls and not all of them add, edit and delete custom auto-texts. More importantly, not all of them are free.

Can’t Text… (Free Version) is a new free Android app that provides a smart and simple User Interface with all the essential features needed to make autoreplying to text messages and missed calls easier. Read on after the break for more info.

Imagine the convenience of having an app, such as Can’t Text…, at your disposal that can not only automatically respond on your behalf in cases where you are unable to do so yourself, but in doing so, also conveys the precise message to the person who is trying to reach out to you. This holds true particularly in situations where neither can you afford to respond by yourself, nor ignore the caller altogether.

The UI is simple yet easy on the eyes. Three buttons at the bottom allow the user to activate autoreply for text messages, missed calls or both. Note that enabling autoreply for calls will lock the Ringer Volume at zero for as long as the app is active and that an auto reply will not be sent to callers whose call are received, obviously enough.

Tapping the Current Message text field in the application brings up the Select Message list which allows you to choose from several predefined autoreplies and save/set your own. To specify your own custom message, just navigate all the way down the list, tap the + sign and key in whatever message you want to be conveyed to the user who fails to catch you up on call or text.

Any autoreply messages saved by the user can be deleted or edited from the Select Message list by holding down on them.

At the moment, there is a bug in the application that keeps the Ringer Volume locked at zero even after autoreply to calls has been disabled. This can, however, be fixed by force closing the application using any Android task manager.

The free version of Can’t Text… contains advertisements. However, there is an ad-free paid version of the app, too, that can be downloaded from the Android Market for $0.99.

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  2. hey great app! can i ask you a question? i really like the battery indicator you have, it is an app or a part of the theme or a ROM? Thanks a lot!

    • The phone has a Cyanogenmod 7 custom ROM flashed. The battery percentage indicator is a built-in option that comes with the ROM. You can find it in CyanogenMod settings>Interface>Status bar tweaks.
