Download the latest version: FrontlineSMS v2
This desktop app is FrontlineSMS app designed to run as a free, offline, open-source desktop application. You can download and use the latest version for your OS below.
Note: we now recommend running your messaging workflow in the cloud so that your data is always safe and backed up, and your automations are running all day, every day. There are also many online features such as sending and receiving API Requests that are not available in the offline desktop app.
Once you have downloaded our software, you will need to connect a compatible device to use it, most often this will be an Android phone running FrontlineSync as the gateway.
FrontlineSMS Version 2 runs in your browser. We support Chrome, Firefox (v 3.5 or later), and Safari. For best results, please update your browser at the same time as updating or installing Version 2. If you need further help with getting started check out our help and support page.
Free technical support is also provided via our community site, but is only available to organizations or individuals using FrontlineSMS for non-profit (NGO) activities. If you do not fall into this category, or if you would like more support, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to find out about our service contracts, project design, training consultancy and technical support services.
Download FrontlineSMS v1
FrontlineSMS Version 1 was our main product from 2008 until mid-2012.
It was designed for use with older phones and USB dongles. It is not fully supported by our team but is still available so if you prefer to use it for legacy reasons, you can still download v1 of FrontlineSMS: Windows, Mac and Linux.
Read more about this on our FrontlineSMS overview page.
