Broadcaster

Description
 
This is an application to send out mass notifications utilizing "dumb phones" and SMS.  One android phone is the hub and other doumb phones send humble SMS messages to the hub phone number.  They can add themselves to list of users.  Once they are a user, any text they send to the hub will be blasted out to all of the users and they will receive all updates.  The user will also have the option to remove themselves from the list.

The app was inspired by FrontLineSMS, a tool that has been used in developing countries to monitor elections, broadcast weather changes, and in general connect people that don't have access to the web but do have phones and mobile connectivity.
