Really not happy with this app! I thought it would work seamlessly between my pc and my iPhone. But it can't "auto send" texts, I have to push send on the phone after I press send in the desktop app! The desktop app can't access my contacts on the iPhone which means I have to add them manually to the desktop app! With those, in my oppinion, glaring shortcomings I have to say that the app is priced way too high and I regret my purchase. The shortcomings may have to do with limitiations in IOS I don't know but I think that the app description is close to a misrepresentation. Ironically this review was written in the desktop app and sent to the iPhone which works flawlessly. Regretably it is a feature I will use very rarely if at all again!
Does the job

SCAM! not doing what it implies
Can you call or text from your computer? NO.
You can type a text or a number on your computer, but you still have to grab your phone, unlock it, and accept the data from the computer before anything happens.
Also you don’t get your phone contacts on your computer which makes creating a text even less appealing. The feature is there, but not working.
And here is where you move from annoyed to angry…
There is NO support. If you write the support you just never get an answer. When you start going through the FAQ and guides you realize that most of it hasn’t been updated in years, and the whole “unlock and accept” issue has been purposefully avoided in all texts.
This leaves you with the clear impression that this is a scam. They want your $ but in small amounts so people doesn’t bother complaining.
Don’t go there…
Update feb 2016.
I wrote support i january 2015. I just got an answer (13 months later). They closed my request and marked it solved. Solution is “Thanks for your request”.
