SMS is still king

Written by Nick Farrell



New survey discovers


Although it is old technology and about as user friendly as a piranha fish, SMS is still going strong. Acision has just commissioned a survey which shows that more than 92 per cent of smartphone users still rely on SMS.

Jorgen Nilsson, CEO of Acision said that the practical uses for SMS are boundless, hence why after 20 years SMS is still as popular as ever. The survey discovered that 69 per cent of users claim that they need it or couldn’t live without it.

Nilsson said that people tend to check their text messages instantly, which doesn’t necessarily happen with other services. While more people are turning to the broadband enabled services for communication people still rely on and love SMS, he said.
