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.

Was great. Key word being "was". Now has a big bar of ads for phone games at the top of the screen above my messages and no ability to make it go away, just make it smaller. A text messaging app did not need a "discover" tab. And you want money every month or year, but it doesn't even clarify if that would make the ads go away. Lost a user and potential customer. Good riddance

I have been using this app for years. I use it because I am able to sync to my tablet and use on my Samsung watch as well. Recently I have had issues receiving messages, sending pictures, and receiving notifications for messages. Not sure why but it use to work on Android Auto but suddenly I stopped receiving notifications for that as well. I pay for the monthly subscription, but have since paused it to try a different app to see if it's more reliable with receiving text messages.

I love this app! I love being able to pin certain people/group text so they don't get dragged to the bottom! I also love that I can NAME group texts! So much more handy than a bunch of names. One idea I have is that it would be so nice on group texts to have customizable colors for each person. Like you could press and hold on their name and be able to customize what their chat bubble looked like. I love that they are different colors, but it would be great if they could be altered.
