MightyText is a brand new app that lets Android users view and send SMS or MMS messages through their computer when they can’t or don’t want to use their Android smartphone. MightyText syncs to your smartphone, copies your texts, and stores them in the cloud.
Originally, MightyText went through a beta test as a Chrome extension. Now it’s available as a web application.
To set up your smartphone, connect to any browser. Open the Google Play store. Download the free MightyText app to your phone. Then go to the MightyText website (www.mightytext.net). Log in, and set up your account. Sync to your Google Contacts and have your contacts’ information added to the MightyText web app. You’re all set to send a receive texts without your phone in hand.
I’m sure you can come up with a few scenarios where the MightyText option would come in handy. Maybe your phone is dead and you need to check your texts. Maybe you’re at the office with your laptop in front of you, and you can’t pull out your smartphone. Pull up the MightyText website and send and receive texts on your computer.
Give it a try at Google Play. What the heck, it’s free.
