|Wire2Air released a New Dashboard for Mobile Marketing and SMS Messaging services! Including a brand new design and new features. This is a wider effort to simplify our apps and improve our users’ overall experience with our apps. Why did we change it? We received lots of feedback that our design wasn't as modern as it could be. Also, it was time to adopt some Web 2.0 standard design and cutting edge technologies to improve our app’s performance and make it easier to add new features. As a result, we decided to rebuild the app from the ground up. Over the last few months, a select group of customers has been testing it – and today we’re finally ready to show it off to everyone. In the coming months, we’ll continue adding new features and other improvements. The newly designed dashboard features intuitive design, enhanced reporting and many more new features. The dashboard was redesigned based on clients' feedback to highlight the high-powered features they use most. It boasted a sleek new look, at-a-glance information about the send and received text and pictures messages (MMS) consolidated reporting.|

6. Text Survey Clone feature

7. Unicode Detection and Transliteration Tool
Text messages are limited to 160 GMS characters. If your text contains any Unicode(Non-English, international characters) symbols, it needs to encoded as Unicode which reduced the text character counts to 70 characters per text message instead of 160. This means that a 160-character SMS message will be split into three text messages if they have Unicode symbols. This is not a user-friendly and can cost your three times cost to send one text message. By using the Unicode character detection tool, you can identify and replace symbols that aren't part of the 7-bit GSM charset to avoid extra cost. We also provide a transliterate of the text message to GSM characters, which might not exactly same as your original text with but will be a new version of replacement characters from GSM character set, without any Unicode.
You can always access Unicode detection tool from Tools Menu option from Dashboard.
