Helping Developers Monetize SMS Apps

TextAuth offers a simple API where developers can send users to sign up to pay for SMS messages by creating access tokens. For just $5/month, users can purchase 160 SMS messages. The tokens can be used to send text messages that count towards a specific TextAuth user’s quota. Jeff build TextAuth primarily for his service, and he is planning to add Oauth to the service in the future.
