Does not work and no support response
Update May 22, 2015 - Since writing the below review, I've emailed directly for help or a refund and have still received ZERO response. Application STILL does not work as advertised.
Original Post- I am able to use FaceTime on my Mac to call and text when my phone is on the same network. I also have a PC and wanted to use the same features. I ran across this app looking for a PC based solution. I downloaded the app for my PC and bought the app for my phone. I then follow the instructions and the text will only forward from my PC to my phone, but they will not forward on to the person. I followed the instructions for resetting the push notifications, but nothing still works. I have emailed support twice asking for further instructions or refund and have received zero response.
I find myPhoneDesktop to be quite useful. My new iPhone 6 Plus is the only Apple phone I have owned with a usable onscreen keyboard. And even though I have Apple's largest phone now, it often is still easier and quicker to compose texts using the app.
The people complaining that you still have to interact with the phone and rating MPD low because of that... They need to realize this is probably due to Apple's restrictions on iOS, not a shortcoming of the app. All of the similar apps I checked out have the same restriction and have some bad reviews because of it.
Honestly, at its current version, this app is junk and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. When it works it's not too bad but in the short time that I've had it the services have been down constantly so I couldn't log into my account, then when it finally was back up my account apparently stopped working and I couldn't login without resetting my password which attempting to do in the phone app would crash the app every time. So at this point I can't use app at all because I can't reset my password and I can't log into my account, so... what a waste of money. There are other options for apps that serve the same purpose. I recommend going with one of those.
