Does the job so far. My only issue at this point is lack of clickable links, GIFs are static and you can't click on a photo to enlarge it. A bit more work can be done to make the UI feel more like a native MacOS app.
The app is expensive for what it is but I have to be able to text from my MacBook. Support is non existent and has not responded to any of my requests for help. (3 attempts). There are limitations to the app. It doesn't keep phone and laptop in sync. Messages on computer are only a copy and you have to mark as read on phone and laptop. Also discovered on my own that it doesn't work if you use Hangouts for sms. Also keyboard emoji shortcuts don't work. You are also not able to see times of messages from your computer.
From the people who brought you Pidgin they promise the same service which is take your money for a lifetime subscription and then terminate it without notification. Pidgin was Superior and they dropped it. Repackaged like their competitors, this new texting app will not grandfather the paid users of the old app. They want you to pay again at a student discount. Not as good as Pidgin but they still want your money. I gave them a chance to make it right and they made it wrong. No thanks.
A big hold up for me switching from iPhone to note 8 was being able to text from my mac, this solved those problems and made everything easy
The app works fine for the most part, but 2 crucial features are absent for people like me who use it primarily for Business and not for casual chatting: 1) Group messaging is NOT supported. Which means all my threads are not able to properly sync with AirText. 2) Picture messaging: when someone sends me a receipt, or a photo of some sort, it only shows a thumbnail on the native app, but I can't actually click it to see its content, which makes the thumbnail a little pointless and thus is not fully supported on Desktop. 3) NEW problem that's happening with the latest update: the top message of my app would show up as blank, but I can still send messages like normal. 4) Contact syncs: when I save someone onto my Contacts, it doesn't sync with the desktop version so literally all my new saved Contacts just show up as numbers instead of their names that I save, which is also very inconvenient. Overall --- it's working at 75% capacity, but still has lots of improvements left to go and the experience is still very buggy for me.
This app works great ! I am using it to connect my Google Pixel 1 to a MacBook Air no problems at all and its instant and realible.
Improved performance and reliability of the app
