Love the app and use it across multiple devices. Only issue is on my tablet 7.1.1 it doesn't show notifications even though they are on. They are also not being blocked by the system. The messages still come through but I just don't get notified of them. With the chrome extension on Windows 10, this is a non-issue.
I installed a few different apps to be able to see my phone messages at my desktop throughout the day, and to cover those occasions where I left my phone at home. Yappy uses my gmail account, so no need to have something running when it's not needed, unlike all the others that I found that have to be installed on my phone and running in the background constantly. It's very easy to mute certain types of notifications too - like facebook, etc. if you don't want to see them pop up on your desktop!
It could have been good. I liked the interface, even if logging in was more difficult than necessary. Some of the frippery was obnoxious but easily hidden. However, after a few days Yappy told me I needed to upgrade to a business account. Why? I'd sent and received maybe a dozen texts over 5 days. Oh well, back to Airdroid.
Excellent interface, the web app is smooth, and sent texts move back to the phone quickly. I've previously used mysms and megatext, and this is by no small margin the best app for texting from your computer.
Yappy is ok. From the Chrome icon, I have to open Yappy in a full tab to reply to a text. I'd rather see the recent texts right from the icon. And when I try to reply to a group text, it doesn't go through.
It's not bad. However the downloadable version on the computer is a little slower and closes out. Could use a new look also.
