Twilio SMS Quickstart Screencasts: SMS Conversations and Messages within a Call

Today we are releasing the final two screencasts in the SMS Quickstart Tutorials. These series provide an easy, visual way to get started with Twilio. In the first screencast below you will learn how to track an SMS conversation, allowing you to build some amazing interactive applications.

The second screencast below walks you through building a voice application that can send an SMS message from within the phone call. This can help you keep in touch with your users and send them relevant reminders within a phone conversation.

If you are new to Twilio, I recommend watching the first screencast to familiarize yourself with the basics of purchasing a phone number and replying to an SMS message via TwiML.

As you watch this first screencast, we’d like to encourage you to follow along with the tutorial Tracking Conversations and build your own Twilio app along with us:

Please follow along with the tutorial Sending SMS via TwiML as you watch our second screencast:
