Project w/ interaction between gmail chat and Max

December 18, 2009 | 12:37 am

I’d like to do an algorithmic Max project that can poll an audience via SMS text message. As far as I know, this would require the interaction of an application like Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Windows Live Messenger, or AOL AIM with Max. Does anyone know how exactly I would/could go about doing this, or where I would even start? Thanks

You need to use an proper SMS gateway. Providers of such services usually offers various APIs to access the service via the web. You would probably require a scripting language (Python or similiar, which can be embedded in Max) to connect to it.

Here is an example of such services: http://www.clickatell.com/solutions/bulksms.php

I don’t think you can use the SMS services of the instant messaging clients you describe to send automated messages.
