User reviews of DeskSMS
Great idea, problems with implementation tho.. new contacts needs to be "accepted" before working, and had some problem with double notifications from both google talk and SMS, which there seems to be no solution to. (except for stopping to use gtalk feature), also - this is a (14 day?) trial, costs money...

WOW, pretty amazing. This beats me from running to my phone to see who sent me a message and vise versa, I can reply back to the person via my gmail account. A little lab messages coming from your server but works GREAT

Well, you just publicly confessed naiveness.Great idea, great app.

Nice app. However It used to be cool. Now it doesn't work very well and you can get the same thing, but better free if you use Handcent.

No customer service This is a great app but they get one star for no customer service. Sent email over 24 hours ago and never got a reply. Also no longer works when I send a message.
