There may be many instances when you’re out late with your friends and you get a call from your parents who ask you to text them right away when you get back home. At that time, you agree but what happens when you reach home? You forget to text them. What happens next is inevitable. Your parents lose their cool and give you a good rebuke. If you want to avoid such instances of being forgetful, then you must follow a simple hack to save yourself from a lot of trouble in future.

It’s quite difficult to remember to text someone later as you always tend to forget. Since not all the mobile phones come with an inbuilt scheduling text messages feature, you should give it a try to these third-party apps on your device to save yourself from the consequences.
