I’ve always hated that texting was tied to my phone. I’d being working on a project on my desktop computer and hear a text notification go off in the other room and wonder is it important. Should I jump up and see who just texted? Well now there’s a solution and it’s free for a limited time!
MySMS is actually a web-based texting service that let’s you use your own phone number! Other web-based services assign you another number and that gets real messy real fast! So even if you are using another texting app on your phone with MySMS it shows up there as well. Doesn’t get better than that!
As I was scrolling through my Facebook feed this morning I stumbled upon this:
With MySMS this will never happen to you again. Phone dead and can’t revive it quickly enough? Go to your tablet, desktop or laptop and text away!!!!
In addition, I type way faster on a regular size keyboard than I do on a phone keyboard. Yep, I’m old and have never mastered thumb typing! lol So, if I’ve got a fairly long text, it’s so much easier to compose it on my desktop computer with MySMS.
Now, here’s the great part of all this! MySMS tablet and computer apps are FREE for a limited time! That’s right free! I’ve just finished installing on my desktop, laptop and iPad and it works great! In fact, I was installing the Dropbox app on my laptop and was asked to sign in. Since I have enabled two-step verification for my Dropbox account I waited for the text with my Dropbox code. Guess what? Didn’t even have to look at my phone as it showed up right on my laptop!!!
Educationally, MySMS on a teacher’s devices would be a real efficient way to deal with the multitude of texts you have to deal with! In addition, MySMS offers backup options to Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote and email in html format! So far I haven’t found anything I don’t like about this service!
So what do you have to lose? It’s free! Still not convinced? Take a look at the video in the multimedia box in the upper right hand corner of this post! Finally I don’t feel tied to my phone anymore!!!! Get MySMS.
