GREAT! business personal..early posts WRONG!!
OK, So I'm so excited!! It works!! GREAT!!! should be like a 4 1/2 star due to the .txt STINKS. But HTML was great. YES! this was from a divorce, but I needed it to keep records of where he had said friends could pick up stuff for him and where we were tracking down items that friends had left with us (valuable) and making sure EVERYBODY found their items. So I have all my records to back everything up!! The "he said/she said", so when someone tried to deny.. I got the proof. Just for legal reasons. Not, for bashing and crap like most people. So this is great for keeping up with anything that needs legal documentation and I will probably get everyone in the office that uses their phones for business texts to get this also, because the facts are there! Unlike a screenshot that can be manipulated. Would be awesome if it would cover images as that is how some of our quickest responses to quality control during transportation is handled. I only tried the HTML (AWESOME) and TXT (STINKS). But I didn't play with options, I just wanted to get ALL of them off my phone and saved!
CAN SAY right now... BEST $5 EVER spent!! Time to try more options!!! Thanks!!
And to early posts.. It shows a text line #, who it is from, who it is to, date & time, the message and in/out direction!! (HTML)
I have been searching for MONTHS on how to view my text messages on my computer and I've been so leary to download a third party app because you never know these days, but this app I got through the apple store which I trust far more than a random website. It worked exactly like it says. I love that you can export it into different formats. I was able to export it into excel so it's super easy to read and find texts I"m looking for. Plus when it's in excel, it gives really good detail on the date stamp of the text so when I'm using these texts for a court document, it has more information for the paperwork that they ask for. It's only downfalls is that it doesn't read emoji icons in the messages, but I'm sure they will do this soon I hope, and it would also be really nice if it could export the pictures within the sms messages as well and keep them in line with the text. Other than that, this is a fantastic app and well worth the money. Most other programs I found for this from websites I didn't know were $20 or more. This for $6 was worth it.
Great App- Million Plus Stars
I decided to try this app, figured if it didnt wrk then I wasted no more than I do on soda. And I surprized as all Hell. It does take alittle to get up and running but I read the troubleshooting page from there web site and found out all I needed to do was restart my computer. This app is great and works better than the other reviews say. I did find it works better with Microsoft Works. Save A File to your documents and away you go. I have been looking for an app like this, I've been going a divorce and the only way anything holds up in court is if you have the Contact Name, Date and Time, The Text, and In and Out and this app gives it all I had over 200 texts from the soon to Ex and it Imported and Exported them all and I printed them all. Best app that I found to do this Just like everything it helps to read up on it. Great Work on producting this app. Hats off to you.
