What's New in Version 3.8
New Premium feature: Schedule your SMS to send them at any time in the future
After more than a year of use
First, if you want desktop sms in a standalone client (and not a chrome app) this is one of your few choices. It does what it says when you have premium, syncing across devices of all types, the ability to send and receive without need for your phone. For those features, I have been very happy with it. It does not require anyone else to have this program if you enable it as your sms provider. Having said all of this, I am not sure how much longer I can really be a member. The app has not seen an update in nearly a year and a half. I have reported a number of bugs that have gone unaddressed. As many hate stated, the look is dated and with no options for a dark theme and clearly no horizon for that being added, I am getting tired of eye fatigue. There are dozens of players in the space or entering the space quickly so to be this stale for this long, and just collect the paycheck is rather sad. As a software developer myself it pains me to see a company back burner a good product. I dont know the reasons but it was really the only thing keeping me with mysms as the phone client is identical to any other sms replacement out there. Time I guess will tell if they can update their products or sink with them.
Paid for Premium Service, Not working!!!
I bought premium service and have had it over a year and it hasn;t worked since December 2015, they charged me again, and I still have not gotten a response from them. It worked great when it worked, but I’m not sure why or what happen, so please think twice about installing because if there’s a problem, you won’t get a response at least I haven’t, paid for a app and haven’t been able to use it since last December. There are other app’s that offer same services and developers that value there customers concerns and at least respond within a timely manner to customer technical issues. This could explain why they have a rating low in my opinion.
accessibility interface needs work
The app is almost accessible 100 percent. However most of the image controls you click on don't have very good labels. I tried contacting the developer but they don't seem to understand what I mean by accessible controls. They keep saying thanks for your feedback, we're glad to have you on board." I hopeone day they can know what I mean even though iv'e given them a link to apple and android's accessibility guides.
