Integrates better than SMS for iChat and does what it is supposed to do. For that, 4 stars. There are some kinks that I hope they can work out. It seems that photos and gifs could use some clean up aesthetically. Aside from that, it's pretty seamless. Nice work! I hope it sticks around and that they keep working on it.
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.
This app is terrible and the company is a pill to work with. ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE. I told them that their product was malfunctioning, and their reply was to download their new product Airtext. They said they could set it up to switch over my paid SMS chat to Airtext so I would be able to use it for free, and I have been waiting 2 months for them to work the bugs out. I have reported them to the BBB for a refund. Terrible. Terrible company. Terrible products. I would not sink a single dime into this company. Save your money and run away.
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.
Disappointed with this app - I expected more for $59.99 that I paid. THE GOOD: I can send/receive texts on my mac (sort of...). THE BAD: - attachments like images or links can't be clicked on to open them. So the images are nothing more than a useless thumbnail. - The search field on the app is useless. To effectively search your contacts, you have to click on the icon next to the search field to allow the app to open another search field that lists your contacts. - The app does not allow you to add a contact from a number that is not in your list. - Messages I type on my Samsung Note8 are not refreshed on the app. So I always have to go back to my phone to see the message history (which defeats the purpose of having this app on the Mac in the first place). - Customer support is helpless. I'm still waiting for a refund on Airtext for iMessage (another $59.99) that I paid and did not work. My emails go to their trash apparently.
