This is the only platform that allows you to text using iChat. Everything else out there doesn't work as effectively. It's a MUST have if you text avidly from your iMac or MacBook. It could be a little more robust with sending or receiving images, but it accomplishes what it says it will! Price is a little steep as well. I'm excited to see how it improves overtime.
Service and app is great, its unfortunately a one way street (Android to iMessage), but they do a good job of warning you about this. The three star rating has to do with it easily being my biggest battery draining app. I don't think there's a way around that considering how many text I receive, but I may update my review if more granular settings become available such as setting times for message sync.
As a long time iPhone and Mac user I missed the seamless experience sending and receive messages when I moved to Android. This app has been a perfect way to bridge the gap when moving from iPhone to Android.
I use Google to run my small business and a Mac as my computer of choice. This tool is an absolute Godsend. I am able to text on my phone when I am in the field and on my Mac when I am in the studio... It doesn't drop messages like some of the other services I have used and they are still working to add new features. Keep up the great work - I am in for life!
Very pleased with this app. Does exactly what it promises. SMS messages coming and going from macOS Sierra are routed through my Moto X Pure (and other Android devices I own). Alll with very little fuss (a basic understanding of how to configure a Jabber account in the Messages.app is required). This app brought "a childlike sense of wonder" to my Android devices, thank you.
I like this app, but for the basic version only allowing 5 texts per day is kind of... Upsetting... My old app allowed 500 free messages a month.. I think that's fair enough. Idk.. I'm just complaining because I can't afford the pay right now so really I won't be using the app until I get a job.
This update fixes issues regarding split conversations and also sending messages. We have also improved the battery usage of the app so that it only works when you send or receive a text message, therefore SMS for iChat has minimal battery impact on your phone!
