There are many distinct features of Message Magic
(MM), all aimed at making your Skype experience more
complete and powerful. Some say it is kind of like
having Skype on steroids! Here are
some key elements.
MM is a Skype add-on product that increases the
power of Skype. Skype allows someone to search 1
pattern at a time, add 1 contact at a time, send 1
message at a time, see 1 profile at a time, see and
process 1 birthday notification at a time.
With the MM add-on the "1" gets replaced by "as many
as you want". One aspect of this change is it allows
a person to very quickly grow their contact list by
searching for and contacting people with similar
interests, communicate much more effectively with
groups or categories of friends and associates, etc.
Other key features include:
- MM provides all components, including key
search terms to use, for you to build a local
prospects database which includes username,
display name, language, gender, birth date,
country, province, city, voice mail capability,
mood text, homepage, about me text (all
searchable). You can add
to this database at a rate of approx. 2 million
prospects per month.
- MM can save your entire chat history so you
1) have a backup, and 2) search through ALL
history looking for key words.
- MM can make a backup of all your categories
and the contacts within the categories.
- MM can search for key words through Skype,
your entire Skype history, your contacts and
your local prospects database.
- MM can translate messages to
almost any language on the planet (using the Google
translation engine). What that means is this: you
can create a message in your native language and
when the message is sent to the recipient they will
receive the message in THEIR native language. And
don't think for a second they won't be impressed. I
can't tell you how many times I've been told by an
online friend that they ARE impressed I "take the
time" to translate to their language... and it
doesn't matter one bit that the translation isn't
- MM can find any group chat you have ever
been in and allow you to load all users into the
profiling window at the same time.
- Many contact management features.
So go ahead, use MM to load the list of people whose birthday
is today, craft your special greeting which probably
contains Emoticons (the message is likely copy/pasted or
brought in by loading a prewritten greeting), select all, check
the box telling MM to auto-translate to the
recipients language, press send. That took you all
minutes or less and you've made a few people feel
good. Believe me, making people feel good is the
right thing to do and you should do it as often as possible!
On the contact management side, features include:
easily adding contacts to one or more Skype categories at
once, removing contacts from one or more Skype categories at
once, bulk deletion of unresponsive or old contacts,
automatic filtering out contacts who do not want (or
just shouldn't get) broadcast messages.
Other basic functions which Skype should but doesn't
provide: backup, view and/or restore contact
categories and the users contained in each of those
MM can also send text (SMS) messages (in bulk) to
any mobile phone on the planet using Skype's
fantastic low rates....
