Send & Receive SMS Text Messages from your Computer, sync'd with your Android phone! 100% Free.
MightyText gives you the power to:
1) Send SMS text messages from your computer
2) Receive SMS text messages immediately as they come in on your Android device
3) Sync all SMS text messages from your Android device to your computer
All without needing a separate phone #. The SMS sent will be Free SMS if you have an unlimited texting plan.
You can send/receive texts on your Android device as you normally would.
*NOTE* - MightyText sends and receives SMS text messages through your Android - your carrier WILL charge you as if you sent the SMS's yourself from your phone. If you have an unlimited texting plan, then there is no additional charge (free SMS).
This is different from Google Voice because Google Voice requires you to set up a new phone #
- Android Phone running v 2.2+ with a working mobile data or wi-fi connection
- Background Data must be enabled on your phone

If you are experiencing an error with pushing messages to the phone - please note that we use the same technology as the popular Chrome to Phone or Bluestacks applications. If Chrome2Phone and/or Bluestacks do not work for you because of a network setup issue on your phone, then it is possible that MightyText won't work. Please email us about this.
We've tested MightyText side-by-side with the following apps installed, on Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich: Viber, Textgram, Browsertexting, mysms, Voxer, DeskSMS, Kik Messenger, kakaotalk, Kakao Talk, Life360, Gmail, Gmail Tap, Tweegram, Bluestacks and WhatsApp.
We have lots of feedback from our users that the app seems to be most compatible when using the standard Text Messaging app, or Handcent SMS. We have had some users report issues with GoSMS and GoSMSPro, and Voxr.
Think of this application as a text messenger or text messaging app to send sms from your computer. No more typing on a small keyboard when texting sms!
Please note: MightyText is different from apps such as: Skype, Voxer, Whatsapp, Ebuddy, Beluga, Facebook Messenger, MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Kik Messenger, Bluestacks, and Voxer - because MightyText syncs with your SMS & Text Messaging app directly on your phone. (keep texting as your normally would!)
We are also different from Google Voice because you can text message using your same phone # (very common question)
Note: One use of Google Voice that we do *not* provide is the ability to text using a different phone number.
