New Feature: TXT to statulo.us!

I've been meaning to implement this for a while, and today I finally got around to it. You can now send text messages from your phone to statulo.us, to create log entries!

First, you'll have to add your phone number to your profile. Click on "My Profile", then "Edit your profile" and add your mobile phone number to your profile.

To post a workout to statulo.us via text message:
  • send a text to: 41411
  • start your text with the keyword statulous
  • add your log message and send!
Example: text to 41411
statulous 10:44 Crossfit Annie, finally linked my double unders!

Entries logged from text messages are entered as custom entries. You will need to edit a log entry on statulo.us to assign it to the proper category, if necessary. Text messages are limited to 160 characters, so you'll still need to use statulo.us to add more detail to your posts.

Now, if you have set up your statulo.us log to post to twitter, you can update statulo.us and twitter from a single text message.

I'm using textmarks.com as the SMS gateway. You will receive a text message reply to your phone that may include a link to ringtones, etc. This advertising keeps this SMS service free, above any rates charged by your carrier.

Enjoy, and keep tracking!
