About this app

Want an SMS app that is fast, secure, and packed with all the features and customization you could want? Look no further.

Pulse SMS is a seriously beautiful, next-generation, private text messaging app.

We care deeply about your experience with the app, and are committed to creating the best SMS texting app.

To round out its best-in-class phone app, Pulse SMS re-imagines your communication by giving you the ability to sync your SMS and MMS messages across all of your devices. Send and receive texts and pictures—seamlessly—from your computer, tablet, car, or any device with an internet connection.

This is text messaging, done right.


A Taste of the Features
Pulse SMS is jam packed with features. On top of syncing between all of your devices, here is a small taste of what makes it the ultimate text messaging experience:
- Unparalleled design and fluid animations
- Endless global and per-conversation customization options
- Suggested Smart Replies within conversations
- Password protected, private text conversations
- Share GIFs with your messages, from Giphy
- Powerful searching through messages and conversations
- Automatic message backup and restore with a Pulse SMS account
- Preview web links
- Blacklist pesky spammers
- Delayed sending to give you time to edit or cancel messages you send
- Automated replies based on contacts, keywords, and driving/vacation modes
- Dual-SIM support

Encryption Protocol
First and foremost, all of your conversations are stored in end-to-end encryption. You never have to worry about your data leaking out and no one can see your messages except for you, not even the Pulse SMS Team! With Pulse SMS, you get privacy and peace of mind, right out of the box.

Privacy Protection Proof
In technical terms, we use PBKDF2 to encrypt your password and use it as a key to encrypt messages and conversations.

Technical Encryption Overview

1) When an account is created, we generate two salts. One to use with authentication and one for end-to-end encryption.

2) The one that we use with login is straight-forward and normal. We store a version of your password, hashed against the first salt, and authenticate you against this hash.

3) For the encryption, we hash your password against salt #2 and store it locally on your device (computer/tablet/phone). Having this key is the only way that you can decrypt messages. Since no one else has the password that was hashed against the second salt, no one else will be able to decrypt anything.

We share our privacy protocol publicly so our users have peace of mind knowing their password is never stored anywhere and without that password, there is no way to create the secret key used for encrypting and decrypting the content stored in the backend.

Supported Platforms
Pulse SMS has a web app that you can use. It also has native apps for tablets, MacOS, Windows, Google Chrome, Firefox, Linux, and even Android TV. Check out all of our platforms, along with screenshots, here: https://home.pulsesms.app/overview/


Pulse SMS is the premier web, computer, and private texting application on Android. Everything is instant, setup is a breeze, and it's design is unlike anything you have ever seen.

Been using Pulse for years with good results. Updated it recently and now it won't sync with my web browser. When I click on a message, it just spins and won't load the message. Tried resyncing messages, but that didn't solve it. Tried reinstalling app. That didn't solve it either. Hope they get it sorted and push an update out quick. I've liked the product, but for now I've been forced to switch to Google Messages, so I can get stuff done in the meantime.

I've been using for years and have loved it until now so just changed my rating from 5 to 1. It no longer syncs correctly to pc (which is why I use it.) It seems to be syncing incoming texts but not my texts. I've reinstalled on my phone, but problem is on the back-end. I emailed but never heard anything back. Seems like a lot of people are having this problem- Pulse, please fix this and I'll be more than happy to change my rating back to a 5!!

I want to be fair in that my review is only related to the most recent version- message sync has gone haywire. Also the most recent incoming isn't at the top of the list anymore. The list view also does not show the most recent text sent. Need to fix and then this app will be back to its normal spectacular operation. I tried to install a prior version but the problem seems to be system related on the back end as this did not resolve the issue. Will raise my star score once these are resolved.
