Drupal Modules for Tropo
We’ve recently released a couple of Drupal modules for Tropo for your hacking pleasure. Send out content notifications or turn SMS messages into nodes with the Tropo Drupal SMS Framework plugin. It comes with an optional patch to SMS Framework that lets you use Tropo’s multichannel capabilities and do IM and voice with Drupal, too.
Drupal comes with a built-in polling system, and you can turn polls into mobile apps using Phone Poll, the Drupal module that adds voice and SMS voting to Drupal polls.
And while not yet released (although it’s on Github), the Tropo module for Drupal is a developer framework that makes the entire Tropo API available from within Drupal. Launch calls, create applications, add phone numbers, and even serve a Tropo application from within Drupal.
