Broadcast SMS v2.2.3 Released

As previously mentioned the Android OS has a hard limit of 100 messages. I am working on a way around this without rooting your phone. As an immediate fix to a force close issue I published a version this morning that locked the SMS message to 160 characters or less.

As of version 2.2.3 your messages can be greater than 160 characters but you'll have to send to fewer recipients. So, if you have 161-320 characters in your message you'll have to reduce your addressee list to 50. If you have 320-480 characters = 33 addressees, etc.

If you try to send again too soon you'll get a force close. If anyone can identify what that timeout period is it would be much appreciated.
