Fantastic app - makes life so much easier to be able to type out texts on a computer keyboard! (using with Win7) One star deducted because using the suggested GIFs/images/custom MightyText emojis does NOT work (TMobile texting). Images are NOT inserted into texts, only a web URL that has to be clicked. If MightyText could fix that problem, it would be perfect! There are some bugs, but for free this is great (group texts show as multiple texts, for example)
The basic functionality -- getting notified about texts on the PC desktop -- is OK. Windows 10 users (and probably Win8) will have to fuss with setting to avoid getting notified twice (through both interfaces). Overall, A for idea and B+ for implementation and interface. (Review amended 8/24/16: Original review included "The text size in the PC window cannot be changed, and appears very large, so a functional windows must be much larger than it should have to be; this needs to be fixed for maximum functionality." ... but I had missed a setting. Developer response was quick and helpful.) I'd give it 4.5 stars if possible. Once it's configured, it's straightforward and useful.
MightyText works properly for me only about 50% of the time, and I paid for the "Pro" version. Messages do not want to be sent from my MacBook all the time (coincidentally with important messages), 2) I have yet to receive a single MMS on my MacBook. Have followed all steps for troubleshooting, and reinstalled; still it's spotty at best; seems to work when it wants to. Maybe the free version works better; I would not recommend paying for the Pro version. Bottom line is, it needs to work all the time if you utilize it for business communication. That's what I get for NOT wanting to use an iPhone; LOVE my MacBook but I'll not try an iPhone until they come up with one thats revolutionary.
This is generally a great system. I text a LOT for work (upwards of 200 texts per day) and I'm NOT a Millenial, my abilities to text on my phone are limited (read: I absolutely loathe auto-correct). This allows me to text from my Mac and use my keyboard. Much faster, much easier. But its not without its glitches: 1. I have to manually sync contacts. Would LOVE if that happened automatically. 2. Strangest thing - sometimes when in group texts, I will see the same reply coming through several times, but identified as coming from different people. I have to go to my phone to figure out who said what. 3. I have a work phone AND a personal phone. Different phones, different SIMs. It would be really fantastic if I could sync BOTH of them to this program. Maybe if I did one through Chrome and one through Safari?? 4. The new reminders is great, but you can't do a recurring reminder?? Then no thanks, I'd rather use my calendar for once-and-done reminders. What I really need is something that can remind me of the 4:00 wrap-up meeting every day and remind me to text my kid with braces and remind her to brush after lunch every day. Otherwise, MightyText is GREAT!!!
Mightytext is the pc version of apple's itext that can be used on the macbook. Its really great because then you aren't tethered to your phone while it's on the charger. My gf is super jealous she can't get it on her iphone because it works really well and she has a HP. Nuff said, I give this app a solid 10/10
This app works, but still needs to be smoothed out in so aspects. For example, if I'm looking at the interface, I don't need alerts inside the interface in addition to Chrome. It's just small gripes like this that take away a star. Even so, it does the job better than any other offerings in my opinion.
