MightyText: Read and Send Text Messages from Your Desktop PC

Using the MightyText app for Android you can view and send out text messages from your desktop's web browser, be it Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, or Safari.

As someone who spends the better part of the day typing away on a keyboard, I find it a lot easier to compose a message from the comfort of my PC rather than from my Galaxy S3’s keyboard. That is precisely what I can do with the free MightyText app.

You can download the MightyText app from the Google Play Store here. It will take but a moment to get the app on your mobile phone and install it. When you run the app for the first time, it will ask you select the Google account you want to use. Select your account and the app will inform you that your phone is linked and that you can view and send SMS messages by going to https://mightytext.net/app.

An email with explanations on how to use MightyText will be sent to your Gmail inbox. This email informs you that MightyText works with Chrome and Safari without requiring any special preparations, with Firefox but you must install and add-on, and with Internet Explorer, preferably IE9, if you go through several settings and restart the browser. As a Firefox user, I was glad to see that I didn’t have to fiddle with the browser too much.

All your messaging threads are displayed as a list on the left on the mightytext.net/app web interface. Click a thread and you will be presented with all the messages it contains. Type in something in the box at the bottom, and it will send out the text/SMS message. Hit the Compose button from the upper left hand corner and you can select a friend and send out a text message.

Please note that MightyText uses the SMS included in your plan, it does not use the web to send out text messages. This works out great for me, as I want to use up the many, many SMS messages my plan offers. To my friends, it is as if I can respond to their texts at a blistering speed. Little do they know that I don’t type on my smartphone, I type on my keyboard.
