Description

Send and receive text messages from your Windows 10 PCs and tablets using your Android smart phone as a gateway. System Requirements Text Desk for Windows requires a Windows 10 or newer PC (desktop, laptop or tablet) and an Android powered smart phone running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) or later. iPhones are NOT supported! You MUST download and run Text Desk on both your devices. You can download Text Desk for Android for FREE from the Google Play store. What is Text Desk? We believe your time, productivity and intellectual focus are very important while you are diligently working at your PC. Various interruptions can sometimes lower your productivity level and hinder your focus. Text Desk aims to help you stay focused on your current task while maintaining your current level of productivity. Text Desk conveniently brings text messages sent to your smart phone right to your PC. At our office, we work on our PCs all day. We get tired of having to stop what we are doing, pickup our phone, unlock it, navigate to the text messaging app, read the message, optionally reply to the message, put the phone back down, and then go back to what we were working on. With Text Desk running on your Android smart phone and your Windows PC, a brief, friendly notification automatically pops up on your PC screen when you receive a text message on your smart phone. This allows you to briefly glance at the message and optionally reply to the message right from your PC without ever touching your phone. If you really value your time, productivity and focus, Text Desk is for you! How does Text Desk Work? When you receive a text message on your smart phone, Text Desk forwards your message to the cloud. From the cloud, your message is pushed to your paired Windows PC and a pop-up notification appears on your PC screen. When you reply to a text message from your PC, or send a new text message from your PC, Text Desk forwards your message back to the cloud. From the cloud, your message is pushed to your smart phone and then sent from your smart phone to the appropriate recipient like a normal text message. Why is Text Desk Different? We truly believe that the sensitive information on your smart phone should be kept as safe as possible on your device and NOT in the cloud. We developed Text Desk because we were very unhappy with the fact that our competitors store all your personal information in the cloud. That means all your contacts, their mobile phone numbers, and every text message you send and receive is stored in the cloud. We DO NOT permanently store any contact information, text messages, or any other personal information about you in the cloud! If you are truly concerned about your privacy and adamant about protecting your sensitive data, Text Desk is for you! No Personal Information Required! Text Desk is all about your privacy and protecting your data. You are NOT forced to setup any sort of an "account" with us. We DO NOT require your mobile phone number, name, email, or Facebook login to use Text Desk. The ONLY information we store about you in the cloud is a few bits of anonymous information about your paired devices so we can direct incoming and outgoing text messages to the correct recipients. No Browser Based Texting! We believe in providing you the best user experience possible. That's why all our Text Desk apps are built with tools specifically designed for the platform you are using. While browser based solutions do have certain advantages, we feel like those advantages are geared more toward US as an app maker rather than YOU the app consumer. If you want to enjoy the best user experience possible while texting from your PC, Text Desk is for you!

good

Love the app- except group messages and pictures do not go through. If you could do group pictures and receive pictures then it would be 5 stars!

Best of the bunch

I've tried virtually every text-from-computer app out there and this stands out as the best. I particularly like the fact that my personal info and data are not being stored on the developer's server.

Great app and a big time saver!

I am a fan of this app as it pretty much works as advertised. Using a Surface Tablet and the Note 2 as my primaries. The Text Desk people also indicated that there could be issues with What's App running concurrently and they were spot on. I had to disable What's App for Text Desk to run but that is ok. All is well.

Worth it!!!

I have tried several of the free cloud SMS apps that one worked very well but was constantly annoying people I was texting with an advertisement for their service. I finally settled on this app and paid the $3; I couldn't be happier with it so far. The only advice I could give is make sure that your computer's contacts are up to date with all of your phone's contacts because that is what this app uses when you are trying to start a new conversation.

Love it!!

This program is wonderful! Love being able to answer texts and send new messages without having to use my cell. Such a time saver ... I don't have to go back and forth between my current computer project and my phone to text! I would love it even more if I could send and receive MMS messages ... :-)

Have Google Hangouts? Forget this app!

I ended up removing all my txting apps, in hopes of seeing received txts with this app., but I can only send from my computer. I think it is because my work phone requires me to have Google Hangouts, and the troubleshooting states I shouldn't have any other txting apps. for this to work. Screw this app!

It's ok

It gets the job done but sometimes the syncing takes awhile and sometimes it doesn't sync at all
