Is it possible to programatically create and send an SMS text message on android and ios using adobe AIR? I have had success using navigatetourl to create the sms message, but was curious to know if its something that AIR is capable of or if os-specific native development is required to accomplish this.

I'm using flash builder 4.6 and AIR 15.

I don't believe you can directly through AIR and AS3 alone, but you could make a Native Extension to do the job for Android. Not sure about iOS though.

Yeah, I figured as much... I've gotta take off my training wheels and eventually move towards Native Extension development to do some of these types of native functions... scared to, but theres no way around it I guess.   Assuming you have experience, is Native Extension development a steep learning curve ( I know its all relative though )?

Thanks for replying.

Im not the best/smartest programmer in the world and I was able to eventually get it down. There are a decent number of tutorials that you can follow to get started on them. I originally followed Lee Brimelow's video tutorials on gotoandlearn.com but the interfaces for Eclipse have changed quite a bit since then and those videos were also done when Native Extensions were only part of a beta version of AIR, but you might still be able to take something away from them. Since I first started getting into Native Extensions, I have built several ANEs for Android including being able to detect phone calls, retrieve metadata for media files without having to have loaded/played them first, and more. The Android Java documentation portal and Stack Overflow will start to become your two best friends.

developing ane's can be quite daunting. I haven't got me feet wet yet either. But as far as implamenting them It's quite easy, if you are willing to purchase some quality ANE. There are some decent free ones but I started purchasing some, I got most of MILKMANGAMES because the documentation provided takes all the guess work out of it.
