I'm not sure if it is to do with T-Mobile or not but I'm suspicious - I'm not able to send or receive SMS's via FLSMS, and T-Mobile explicitly says (I noticed after the fact) that it does not support…Continue

"Hi Laura, I'd love to know more about the Cloud platform - is it public yet? I'm not finding documentation . We were avoiding running it with a modem because it becomes difficult for the NGO to maintain and extend that. We'd much…"

"Hi Claudia Sounds like you'd be a good candidate to trial our Cloud platform, which works with SMSSync - so you can use an Android phone to send and receive messages. I think that should solve your problem. I'm assuming here that you…"

I am a digital artist and designer working on projects for public good. I am teaching as studio at Parsons School of Design in collaboration with the Open Society Foundation which is focused on designing technology platforms for public health support. I've just returned from a trip to Guatemala to work with a Parsons fellow and NGO, and am now developing a mobile app that supports rural indigenous communities need to report on medical inventory.
