The killer feature is the app uses your established mobile number
Sick of having to get up and make your way to the phone every time you hear your message alert sound? Or just plain tired of grappling with touchscreens to compose messages? (And let's face it, even Android innovations like Swype aren't as natural or speedy as simply belting out what you want to say on a physical keyboard.) If either of the above sounds familiar, then you're going to love MightyText. It's a free Android app and browser plug-in that lets you sync your Android smartphone with your computer, enabling you to send and receive text messages directly from your desktop via the MightyText web app.
Unlike a lot of the 'free text' style messaging apps that are available in the app stores, communications are routed as per usual through your mobile network, so messages still cost the regular carrier rate - all you're essentially doing with MightyText is remotely accessing and controlling the messaging app on your phone. But the killer feature is the app uses your established mobile number, and the receiver on the other end doesn't need to install or use anything to send or receive messages; as far as all parties are concerned, it's just regular text messaging via phones, with the hidden benefit that it can all be conducted from your PC or Mac. MightyText works across all the top browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari) and supports MMS and voice calls too.
