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.

Just a trial No where did it say it was just a trial. I buy a lot of apps but do not like misleading apps that don't tell the whole story up front.

Perfect app I find texting very tedious and being able to type text messages on my computer at a much quicker pace is very convenient and more efficient. The app manages conversations reasonably well and is an overall good experience.

Good, but imperfect long message handling. Has worked well and I'm into my second year of subscription. The behaviour with long messages is frustrating though and I'm unsure if this is new or not. Long messages typed out on the website are split into several smaller messages for sending, sometimes the last one isn't included. When I send long messages from the hangouts app on my phone they don't appear split like the desksms ones. Please fix!

despite some delay at times, works as expected. this app has always seemed to work great for me. as i said in the title, there were some delays in either updating of the message history or sending of the messages. i'm not faulting the app for either of those as there could've been other influences at work. i would like to know if there are plans for an update of this app as my paid license is about to run out.
