I liked this app except for the problem where I would usually get two copies of each text, like many have reported. However, the worst thing is that it would randomly append the mysms url to my texts. Impersonation of users is something only the worst companies on the planet will resort to doing, so mysms is in fairly bad company.
It is still sort of handy though, in that you can use it to see if you have texts, though you would certainly want to use your actual device to send them, so that your friends or colleagues don't think you are a shill or have been hacked.
However, I wrote an email with the contact form to inquire whether a paid subscription would stop this unethical behavior, and received no response in the last 9 days.
It looks to me like this app is dying. They have a support infrastructure in place, but either don't have the manpower to answer even simple yes or no questions, or they simply do not care.
Overall, installing this is probably not worth the trouble. It is glitchy and only usable for receiving, and it's run by an unethical company with no intention, or maybe no ability, to support it. I would recommend you look elsewhere.
I have a Galaxy S6 and this app makes it perfect to reply to texts without having to switch back and forth between my phone and my iPad. I only wish it had support for the multitasking overlay and notification/lock screen replies. Other than having to log out and back in when I update the contact on my phone this app works amazingly.
I'd definitely recommend it to everyone one I know that would need the features it has to offer. 😊
MUST HAVE APP
I was on Verizon and was use to having all of my stuff synced and I lost that when I went with AT&T until now I got it back!! Thank you!!
