Apple’s iMessage is arguably one of the best messaging applications for iOS devices. Introduced in October of last year, iMessage has been the prime choice of many users. It's known for being able to send and receive messages faster in a secure environment compared to other platforms. The iMessenger is so reliable that it has been chosen by many users for its simplicity and service.
The iMessenger is certainly a great application if you own a Mac, iPhone, iPod, or iPad, but what good is a service if it remains an Apple exclusive? For Android users out there, there’s an application that provides similar functions as iMessenger. Introducing mysms – Text anywhere, an SMS service that synchronizes texts across mobile platforms, desktop computers, and through the Internet.
The service is available to a wide variety of platforms. The only platforms that are not yet supported are Windows Phone and BlackBerry, the latter of which has prided itself with its very own BlackBerry Messenger Service.
Using the mysms – Text anywhere app on your Android device is easy. When you first run the application, it will grab your entire SMS history and then you are required to signup to its cloud service by using your mobile number.
Once logged in, all your messages will be stored in the cloud, so whenever you receive or send a new message, it will automatically be updated on all platforms like Facebook, Android, Twitter and its web application service.
Send free text messages to other users using mysms, and it doesn’t matter if you are using an Android phone, tablet, computer, or iOS device. Never miss out on an important message ever again. With the app's cloud service, all of your messages will be synchronized between your Android phone, tablet, and computer. This eliminates the burden of manually checking every device you own just to keep you updated.
The app isn't limited to sending messages, users can also send pictures, files, and multimedia. The app works on both PC and Mac platforms and is compatible with a wide range of browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
Other features of mysms – Text anywhere include automatic SMS backup, remote SMS text via your mobile carrier, and desktop notifications. The app also lets users customize their experience through themes and plugins that they can grab for free from the Google Play Store.
The app's features could likely topple Research In Motion’s BlackBerry Messenger Service, as well as threaten the popular WhatsApp messenger, which currently connects Android, iOS, Blackberry, and Windows Phone users with one application.
Overall, mysms – Text anywhere is a great alternative to traditional SMS messaging. Not only is the app jampacked with features; the service is also free of charge and more people are already signing up for an account to stay connected.
You can download the mysms – Text anywhere application absolutely free by heading to the Google Play Store.
