FrontlineSMS on a Mac?

Bobby, a friend of mine from the Philippines (who I met at a recent Fahamu workshop in Nairobi), has been doing some great work with FrontlineSMS lately and has become a real supporter of the software. Over the next few weeks development of the next version will begin – thanks to funding from the MacArthur Foundation – and hopefully Bobby will be a central player in that. In the meantime, he holds the honour of being the first person – that I’m aware of, anyway – to get FrontlineSMS running ‘on’ a Mac (within an XP ‘virtual machine’, anyway). And here’s his photo to prove it.

The new version will be platform independent, so hopefully we’ll see a lot more Macs running FrontlineSMS in the coming months and years…
