What does 'Lite' mean?
DesktopSMS Lite is a wrapper that sits on top of your default Android SMS messenger and provides SMS and MMS synchronization with DesktopSMS Client on Windows. It is not standalone messenger (and that is why we call it Lite). This implies some limitations that are enforced by Android system design, because only default Android SMS messenger is allowed to make changes to the messaging store. This is the reason why you can't delete messages (or conversations) or why messages are not even marked as read when using Lite version , although we would like to make it possible!

Do I need to create online account to use this application?
No. Your devices are connected locally, without using any cloud services.

The app functions as advertised, however I think the app is long in the tooth and needs an upgrade. Many cross platform sms apps now offer texting of images or videos as well as emoji's. The text functionality works but when the phone connects to computer each person I try and text takes a few seconds to refresh before it accepts my new text a little annoying that it doesn't auto sync. As I said "perfectly functional but functionally lacking" at this point!

Great that it works over local connection with lots of options (wifi, bluetooth, usb). Texts are sent successfully but unfortunately are not logged on my mobile device, leaving gaps in the conversation history. Also, conversations on desktop seem to sync oldest to newest, making it take a while to catchup with the most recent contacts/texts.

I find this app to be superior to other desktop programs that allows me to text from my PC. I contacted the developer the day I installed his app and he replied very quickly. Other apps of this type (of which there are not that many) are more expensive to buy the premium versions and still don't offer the potential of what DesktopSMS has in store. I look forward to many new and helpful features in the future.
