Update: Completely unreliable. Tried to support it on Kickstarter but I'm tired of it only working a quarter of the time. Really bad on data. Notifications are very spotty. Not an MMS issue, none were received. Just spiked about 1GB within an hour. Be careful using this, you might blow through your data and get hit with huge costs.
I think the program is good but does not justify the cost of the paid version. I think Yappy would do much better to lower the cost and try to sell more subscriptions. As of now I don't get enough benefit to pay for the service but if the price point were lower it may be more attractive.
Does the job, most of the time. One out of every 8-10 messages fail, but only every few days. Also, you can only see group messages, as my sends have all failed. I prefer PushBullet's PC notifications, but mostly because it delivers everything (Gmail, YouTube, phone calls, etc.) I haven't reached any limits yet on the free version, but PB limits to 100 sends. I'll give MightyText one more try, else I'm getting new friends that don't use SMS.
Needs work now. 11/05 - won't allow for force stop. continuously running in background. also, can't attached pic from desktop. Works great for short sms. Which is what texting should be about anyways
The app is good in general for basic texting but could use some improvements especially when using the chrome extension. These things need fixing or implementation to compete with Mighty Text. 1) MMS does not work 2) Notification from phone does not work except for incoming text 3) Ability to pop out your text conversation into a separate window like mighty text. 4) Add all android emoji's to the webpage version. I should note my phone is running android 7.0. If these things were fixed I would rate your app 5 stars and pay for the lifetime membership.
Currently like it much better than MightyText. Their notifications on Chrome are much nicer and easier to respond to. Their rates per month are also half the price of MightyText. This is also much better than Airdroid, especially since Airdroid's desktop client is obtrusive and somewhat intensive.
