[Release] Unread SMS Notification
unread sms notification release at http://cre.ations.net/blog/post/smsn...nread-sm:cool:
I hate it when someone SMSes me, and I miss the vibration, and I go for hours without checking my phone. Thus I created SMSNotify, a script that vibrates your iPhone every 15 seconds when you have an unread SMS.
The script is quite simple - it just queries the SMS database for unread SMSes, and if there are any, it calls the 'vibrator' utility that vibrates the phone for a short time.
It's written in shell script so if you want it to do other things it's easy to modify.
Now it's not perfect - when your phone is asleep it won't be every 15 seconds but will wait until the phone silently wakes up (to check your e-mail generally) before it can vibrate again. I'm working on that.

or just wait for it to appear in Installer.app - my good friend Shaun Erickson is packaging it up. Note that if you manually install it you need to start it by running "launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/net.ations.cre.smsnotify.plist" but if you use Installer that will be done automatically.
