Wireless Communications Transfer Protocol


#1

Does anyone know of frameworks or objective-c code base for Wireless Communications Transfer Protocol (WCTP). I’m trying to extend some examples in the iOS book by creating a text paging app. Thanks!

If it’s via bluetooth then start here:

developer.apple.com/library/mac … asics.html

Other than that, sending pages depends on 2 things:

  1. If the text/sms gateway is internet based or directly connected to the device in question
  2. How that gateway is interacted with
    i.e.
    Look up Webservices in pretty much any of the Cocoa for Mac and Cocoa for iOS BNR books. They’ll explain how to put/get data to/from web services
    If it’s directly connected i.e. USB then you need to start looking at the individual hardware development guide for that particular manufacturer

On the other hand, if you just want to send text messages from the iOS device: developer.apple.com/library/ios/ … ssage.html

But you can NOT receive messages though. Wether you like it or not, apple have sandboxed this and they are only routed to the messages app. For privacy reasons this is sandboxed, as is the phone logs etc…
