ZipWhip Cloud Texting App Now Available for Linux Desktops

ZipWhip, the cloud texting Android app that lets you send out texts from your desktop computer, tablet, or web browser, is now available for Linux desktops (Ubuntu and Mint).

With ZipWhip, you don’t need physical access to your Android-powered device to be able to send out text messages and to be able to read incoming messages. You can do this from your tablet, from your web browser, or from your desktop PC - and it's all thanks to the power of the cloud. As someone who is more comfortable using a real keyboard than Android’s virtual keyboard, I deeply appreciate the sort of functionality ZipWhip has to offer.


The ZipWhip Android app is available for download in the Play Store for the awesome price of free. The application runs in the background and brings your messages to the cloud so that you can conveniently send and receive messages from the ZipWhip web app, tablet app, or desktop application. It uses your existing number to let you send out and receive messages by sitting comfortably in front of your desktop computer instead of hunched over your Android device.

Earlier this August the ZipWhip team had some good news to share with the Linux community: the fact that the ZipWhip application for Linux desktops has been released. This means that ZipWhip is now available as a standalone application for Windows, Mac OS X, as well as Linux-powered desktop computers – that would be Ubuntu and Mint-powered machines.

“We’re happy to announce that our Linux desktop app is ready for download!” said ZipWhip on its official blog. “This project was a full-on team effort complete with all the difficulties of a Linux build, so the launch comes with an especially big sigh of relief.”

The announcement that ZipWhip is available for Ubuntu and Mint-powered Linux desktops was accompanied by the video you can view below.
