Very nice work. Thanks very much. I am going to use the Twilio service to send SMS. Wondering if there is a way to simply query the service to fetch replies to messages from FileMaker. They don't provide a cURL example in the documentation.

Thanks so much for your articles and especially for the sample files, they are very very helpful. I am not a web programmer, but I have been able to work on Filemaker because of its simple nature. (Atlease with the basic templates and script steps) Hopefully, you will be writing more articles on Filemaker Data APis and how they can be used. I really looking forward to it
