Is there something besides Moto Connect and Mighty text that would allow you to SMS/MMS from the desktop. Mac or PC. I came from a iOS world where iMessaging worked really well for the desktop. Hangouts is close, but I message a lot people with iPhones so it just doesn't cover enough people.

Any suggestions?

  • Well, we're not "Software Recommendations" here. But you might want to try Airdroid. Let's you manage your device from your computer, including SMS and calls.

  • I can vouch for DeskSMS, but it requires a subscription. DeskSMS offers a Chrome extension and a tablet client as well, in addition to being much faster and reliable than MightyText.

This sounds a lot to me like a sort of push notification system. The way I have implement this into my own foot print is to use growl/libnotify on the desktop and notify my android which allows me to have a central cloud based datastore for my alerts.

There is also the option of just emailing all your devices/contacts instead. One can find a Email To SMS Email Address List which lists the domains you would need to send a message to for your SMS/MMS communication to be transmitted.


Try MySMS. This is a really nice tool and allows you to send, reply, and delete messages from your browser.
