CNET Editors' review
Fumbling with the small keyboard on your phone or searching for your phone when you need to text became a thing of the past with this app. Mighty Text allows you to send messages right from your computer without downloading any desktop clients. You don't have to memorize any of your friends' phone numbers, either. It's almost like having a SIM card in your PC or laptop.
The app works using your existing Google account and requires you to authorize the app on the Web. Once you do, all of your contact information, texts and calls are forwarded to Mighty Text. From there, you can see every message you've been sent and reply to messages with ease. Messages are sent within seconds. You'll even have the ability to attach pictures or videos to your outgoing texts. The program doesn't load your contact's pictures, but it does load incoming and outgoing calls and texts from them in the same menu. It even shows your phone's current battery so you know if it's time to take it off of the charger. To do all of this, it uses a remote connection to your phone. That means the app won't help you avoid texting charges as you might expect. If that's not a problem for you, this app is an amazing find.
This app works just as you expect it to with no complicated setup. Whether you're trying to text with a full keyboard or just don't want to get up from the couch to answer a text, Mighty Text is a standout app that offers more than most text-from-your-computer setups dream of.

"Gets around a lot of restrictions at work."
Version: MightyText - SMS from Computer 1.52
Excellent Chrome Plug-in
Sync'd with my phone instantly
It'd be nice to add contacts in there - otherwise, none.
This is fantastic in an office environment where you're not allowed to be on the phone.
