SMS sender

By MacMedia

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.

Description

Type SMS messages on your Mac and send them via your iPhone.
The Wi-Fi connection is used, SMS client for iPhone is required (available free on the App Store). Your iPhone and the Mac computer must be on the same network.

Other features:
- auto connecting to iPhone SMS client
- reading recipients directly from Apple Contacts
- sending messages to an individual recipient or to a group
- import a group from a csv file
- creating message templates
- history of sending
- recent recipients list

Sending the SMS message must be confirmed on the iPhone due to security reasons - this confirmation is a feature of the Apple developing environment, in which the "SMS client" application is written. It is not possible to send a message without such a confirmation.


!!! Important connection information !!!
Both your Mac and your iPhone must be on the same Wi-Fi network.
SMS sender and SMS client use a standard Apple Bonjour service for discovering devices on the network, applications use an arbitrary port number between 49152 and 65535 (as any other third-party application).
If SMS sender is not able to find your iPhone on the network, it seems that ports 49152-65535 are blocked in your computer or in the router. Then, restart the router, the computer and relaunch the application on your iPhone.
Bonjour service (Multicast DNS) MUST be ENABLED in your router.

Well…it’s a good idea...

I will gladly change my opinion if I can ever figure out how to work it! So far ,it keeps disconnecting and there’s no directions on how to input the person you want to send a message to.Who has time to mess around? I will just use my phone! Please add some useful info and I will try again.Thanks
