User Reviews


A ridiculously easy way to get started with phones.

Richard Lang, Software Developer25th of September, 2014 13:00

When the topic came up of integrating phone interactions into a software solution it could send a chill down any modern developer's back. Even the thought of choosing which provider to go with could leave me in a cold sweat, let alone handle the implementation. So I was doubtful when I plugged Twilio into NuGET and sent the first SMS message. But as it instantly arrived on my phone (prepended with the trial account message) I was left surprised at the ease.

Disrupt Your Business Communication Suite with a Communications API and Cloud Platform

Rakesh Sharma1st of March, 2013 13:43

The main thing to remember about Twilio is that it’s a platform and can be used to create a wide-range of solutions. With it, you can build applications to address a wide variety of tasks including making or receiving calls and messages, converting your browser into a phone line and vice versa etc. Although these tasks sound fairly technical, Twilio strips away the complexity using a simple, easy-to-use applications programming interface. Registration is fairly simple and involves configuring a Twilio number for calls and messages.
