I know that there’s probably no way to know when a user has actually sent an SMS text message from a Thunkable app but I’m hoping someone has a suggestion for a way to figure that out.
When I use the In—>Share—>SendTextMessage block, it opens the default messaging service on the phone. If the user sends a message, it then switches back to the Thunkable app. What if I had a timer running and right before I call SendTextMessage, I change a variable value from false to true (e.g. OpenedSMS=true) and store the value of the timer. Then, I have a block that constantly checks to see if OpenedSMS is true AND the current timer value is the same as the stored value… or say, 1 second greater. That way, I know that the app switched to an SMS app and switched back since only a second or so has elapses.
Would that work? I would test it myself but I can’t get a simple count up timer to work. Can someone share a screenshot of a working count up timer? I’ve looked through the forums and so far haven’t found one from Thunkable X that just displays a timer that counts up each second.
