While scheduled social media posts has become fairly common place, being able to schedule text messages is still a new concept. Based in the UK, NexText Messenger allows you to schedule texts to be sent in the future as well as send regular messages, create groups, call contacts and send tasks to co-workers.

Currently in beta, the messaging app lets users send a message now with a pre-determined delivery date. On an individual basis the ability to schedule text messages could work well for events you don't want to forget, like wishing someone a happy birthday. It would also work well for organizing groups. Businesses could use this feature similarly to scheduled posts on social networks, sending on promotions, discounts and deals to their customer base.
