5.0 out of 5 stars Just Starting, But Wow January 9, 2013
I just installed this app. a few days ago, and I'm very impressed with it. I wanted a texting app. that
would allow me to write texts on my PC that I could send to my Android phone and out from there. Mighty
Text does that and does it well.
I get notifications of incoming texts via little boxes that appear on my monitor along with the full text
message as well. A bonus is that it also notifies me when I have an incoming call on the cell!
I've spent the better part of the last 2 weeks trying to find an app. like this that would do what it says
it will do, install easily and quickly, and come in a small package that doesn't use much battery on the cell.
So far, this one fits the bill in all categories. I will update this after more usage and let you know how it's
going.
At this point however, I would recommend that anyone give it a shot.

Regards,
Len

5.0 out of 5 stars Great app... July 13, 2012
let's you have the phone elsewhere while you are at your computer... it's nice to have it on the charger in my room while I am playing around on the computer.. even lets you know when you have an incoming call and who it is... I've used this since it was beta and prefer it over the others I've seen..

5.0 out of 5 stars Great app, I can text from my computer and tablet! August 13, 2012
I have been using MightyText for quite awhile now, and I am still really happy with it. The developers keep working to improve it, so it keeps getting better. It syncs my texts with my phone (Razr Maxx, then Razr Maxx HD, now HTC One Max) so I can see them and send them from my computer AND my Nexus 7 tablet (hurray for the tablet app!) Even if I leave my phone at home, I can send texts from my work computer. There have been a couple glitches from time to time because apps are tricky to get right on all devices and all Android version, and the developers have addressed them promptly. I really appreciate the new update photo button in each contact - if I change contact photos, this makes them update. I also like that I can send pictures in my messages. I highly recommend MightyText and I can hardly wait for a version to come out for my iPad!

3.0 out of 5 stars Works more than half of the time September 26, 2013
By C.S.
Verified Purchase
As stated in the title, this works half of the time or more. There are plenty of moments where my text would just hang on the computer side and not be sent to the phone, but my phone would send updated texts to this app on the PC. Too much lag to make it unreliable. Hopefully this will be improved...

Fantastic app! To see your text message and respond via your computer or tablet is really great. Responding is quick, and you aren't glued to your phone - yes, your phone can be in one room and you can be on another computer in the house that is on the same network. Plus you get a toast message when a call comes in, both during the call and that you have missed the call. Plus it is stable and reliable. I am pleased enough that I am considering the Pro version which adds several handy features including text block, longer archive times and reminder texts.

I love that I can sit at my computer and text. Sure it does have a few glitches where texts will hang up but most get delivered just fine. Easy to use.
