DirectSMS is a cross-platform, easy to use Scripting Xtra for Macromedia Director, Authorware and Shockwave that provides applications with the ability to communicate with mobile devices. By using DirectSMS Xtra, Director, Authorware and Shockwave applications can easily generate and send short wireless text messages (also known as SMS messages) to cellular phones and pagers throughout the world. All that is required for the Xtra to send SMS messages is that the computer on which the application is running on would be connected to the Internet. No special hardware or software is required. DirectXtras is also able to offer a customized version of the Xtra for developers who wish to incorporate SMS receiving capabilities in their applications. DirectSMS Xtra is Shockwave safe and therefore it can also be used with Shockwave 7 or newer and when safety features in Director are turned on. An auto downloadable Shockwave safe package of DirectSMS Xtra is also available. It is a compressed, small sized (less than 30K) version of the Xtra, that can be downloaded automatically from a web site to the user's local machine whenever needed, and once installed provides Shockwave applications on the web with the ability to send SMS messages. DirectSMS Xtra is available for Director 5 and above, Authorware 4 and above, and is compatible with Windows 9X and newer (including 2000, ME, NT, XP) as well as MacOS 8, 9 and X.
