    Many of you know who Koush is, he is the mind behind ClockworkMOD recovery. We all know with out his hard work and dedication to Android many of the phones we use today might still be in a state of stock. I know I appreciate his work immensely.

    He has recently been working on a solution for making our lives easier when it comes to sending and receiving SMS messages on multiple devices. He just released his application entitled DesktopSMS. This newest addition to his already amazing Android portfolio allows you to sign in to you Gmail account and send/receive SMS messages on your PC, tablet and device with ease. You can choose to use the service via Gmail or via Gchat or both as well as others:

    You can use your favorite IM client (Beejive, Trillian, etc) or email client to send text messages from your phone number!

    Step 1) Install Desktop SMS on your *phone*.

    Step 2) Install a chat client or use gmail on your desktop PC or tablet (like a XOOM)

    Step 3) Have a friend send you an SMS, and respond from your desktop PC or tablet!

    This is an open beta, so be prepared for bugsā€¦


    Although the app is now available for you to try, it is still in an open BETA status. Which means there might still be some bugs to work out. @Koush will be all over making this flawless and wonderful, have no fear of that.

    If you want to get going with this app, go check out his site app.net/desktopsms and get the install needed to get going. [​IMG]
