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.

Subscription didn't renew I paid to renew my subscription but it didn't take. I've sent multiple emails but no response. Love the app, but the support is non existent.

Out of 107 apps on my phone... this one is the single most crucial. Very reliable. Can use my laptop or tablet to send texts with MY phone number. Everything syncs perfectly. Worth every bit of 5 bucks

I had this rated high for years. I renewed my subscription, but my account was never credited. Numerous attempts to contact the developer for resolution have not been acknowledged in any way. Too bad, such a respected developer in the community letting this user down.
