One of the few reasons I've resisted switching over to an Android phone earlier was how much I would miss being able to receive and send SMS messages via my iMac desktop 'Messages' app. Thanks to SMS for iChat, I'm happily able to enjoy my new Samsung mobile and still send and receive my SMS messages just as I always have. The setup instructions were crystal clear and worked perfectly [another big relief]. I love this app, and would happily recommend it.
Fantastic! Exactly as described SMS for iChat does exactly as it should. I love Android but have never been able to commit due to my MacBook and iPad. There are other solutions out there like Mighty Text but they are not as seamless as the integration with Apple messages. I was also able to add the service to a Jabber client on my iPad so that's a plus too. All in all, a solid job and a solid app!
When I got my new Pixel I was really upset when I learned that I wouldn't be able to text from my iMessage like I used to with my iPhone. I rely on that while working as to not disrupt my concentration. When I found SMS for iChat it was the greatest relief! It works just like my iPhone did...even better really as it brings in the actual contact names and photos and before, with my iPhone, it just brought in phone numbers so I had to memorize who was who.
Absolutely fantastic. Couldn't fault this app, it works seamlessly with my Mac. I have recently made the switch from iOS to Android and being able to send texts from my Mac was a big thing for me. No longer is this an issue thanks to the ingenious invention that is SMS for iMessage! Thank you so much for creating this app!
This is a fantastic app, especially for those who are very cross platform. Having just acquired the new Pixel as well as the new Macbook, it was very difficult to feel like my two devices meshed together. I used to use a combination of MightyText and Pushbullet to text from Chrome, but I found this wasn't the most elegant solution. This app however makes it nearly seamless to text from a macbook! It facilitates everything very well! My only complaint would be that texts you send from your phone directly do not show up as a message sent by you on imessage, though this isn't a huge hindering factor on the use. It would also be helpful if mms opened in imessage like the native app does, but also not a hindering factor. Very good app.
Great app that works perfectly! Would definitely recommend it. Unfortunately, as a student, the pricing is well out of my range and I can't afford the pro version at the moment. :( great work guys! Maybe think about offering a discounted rate for students? Cheers!
