GTalkSMS


Control your phone through GTalk / XMPP.

Note: GTalkSMS is not a chat client, its a service on your android phone that connects to GTalk/XMPP and waits for special commands and informs a GTalk/XMPP account about new SMS Messages / Incoming Calls / Battery State / etc.

* Start the application remotely by sending a SMS with "GTalkSMS" body then locate your phone, erase data or take photo if your phone has been stolen.
* Receive and send SMS from a GTalk/XMPP conversation.
* Search for :
- contacts from GMail or Exchange,
- old SMS,
- call logs.
* Start GMap, Google Street view or Google navigation from an address entered in a GTalk/XMPP conversation.
* Copy text to android clipboard or text boxes from your PC with a real keyboard.
* Get your Android phone clipboard.
* Execute shell commands.
* Receive notifications from incoming SMS or incoming calls.
* Dial a contact on your phone.
* Mark SMS as read.
* Make your phone ring.
* Make your phone send you geolocalization links (GMap links) to track down your phone.

Widget and a notification icon are also available.

Sometimes Jabber doesn't work. It's mostly due to the Jabber server, then please don't blame GTalkSMS.

If you like this application, consider buying the donate version.

Recent changes:
* Version 4.4.1 fixes the connection issue
* UI enhancements for better usability
* Get all notifications of your phone via the accessibility feature and new command notification (you need to activate the GTalkSMS Accessibility Service from the Android Accessibility preferences panel)
* MMS notifications and command
* Music command to control the Music application (play/stop/next/previous/volume...)

sweet & perfect! the best tool for android remote administration! you can do so much with it! from sending sms remotely, you can easily copy-paste stuff on it and struggle less with your phone's keyboard. you can even leave your android at home and still be able to sms people using it. optionally use it like an alarm for people at home using ring:... you can remotely reboot your android if you got root.. cmd:reboot ... since it is small and light, it's the best tool to manage old android phones if you have multiple c
