After I spent literally years trying to figure out a way to send text messages from my computer, I just found out that the SMS app I was using was the culprit. So, I chatted with Marius (the father of Yappy) on his website and he shined some light on that issue. It was maybe the greatest experience I had with customer service. To make it short, Yappy works perfectly, while using EvolveSMS. I can receive text messages from all my friends now. And I can do it straight on my computer. Highly recommended app, highly recommended developper.
As someone looking for an alternative to Pushbullet after they started charging, I really wanted to like this app. Unfortunately it's WAY too spotty. Constantly needs to be reinstalled or restarted.
I don't like the way this app fails to give you notifications of new text messages. I'm gonna switch to using push bullet
Throughout the day I installed yappy, I noticed my phone on the warm side. And by 5pm my phone was dead. Going through my battery usage, it shows yappy using 12% of my battery, the second highest on the list. Unacceptable! Uninstalled.
Sending a text yields 2 messages in my client. It doesnt actually send 2 it just is visual clutter, kind of consider it a killer.
Not sure why some people seem to have issues. I've had zero problems. I started using Yappy with EvolveSMS. Evolve was sort of buggy and lagged a bit. Plus they want you to pay for features and customization that other messaging apps offer for free. So I switched to Textra. I was afraid that I wouldn't get messages on my computer after switching. But I didn't have to change any settings or do anything else. Yappy didn't miss one message in the transition. Wonderful app and I recommend it for anyone.
