Android Candy: MightyText, Mighty Awesome

I'll admit, I've always been impressed with Apple's iMessage program. With its integration into texting, it seamlessly combines instant messaging and SMS into a single communication stream. Whether on an iPhone, iPod, iPad or Macintosh, the messages can be seen and sent to other Apple devices. The only downfall is that you can send only SMS messages to non-Apple phones from your actual iPhone with a texting plan.

MightyText takes the idea of integration in a slightly different, but also slightly more awesome, direction. If you have an Android phone, once you install the Free MightyText application, you can text back and forth from any browser on any computer, regardless of the operating system! It includes MMS pictures, group texting and all the other cool features that traditionally are available only from a phone.

If you've been wavering back and forth about getting an iPhone or an Android device, MightyText might be the application that seals the deal for you. It was for me. In fact, MightyText is so incredibly useful, we've given it the Editors' Choice award this month. Check it out now at http://mightytext.net.

The Web app syncs up when you log in from a computer. It doesn't matter where the discussion started, it's always there!

Google Voice....and Talk / Hangouts

Bimmer's picture

I completely concur with metalx2000. Google has provided this for quite a while. With your standard Google account, you can even use a shared computer (kiosk/library) or someone else's device, with a simple browser. Having the ability to get up from a workstation, and take your Google Hangout conversation with you on a handheld device is almost old-hat. I don't see anything "new" in this product...

Perhaps fruit-phone users should be encouraged to pursue more Google-centric, standard solutions...

Google Voice

metalx2000's picture

There is a little thing called Google Voice. It will allow you to send and receive text messages on your Desktop, laptop, tablet, and phone regardless of OS. It will also group your messages in the correct order. It will translate your incoming voice mail messages to text and forward them to you in a text or email. You can also make calls using it from your computer. You can link one phone number to many phones and then both make and receive calls from those phone using just one number. There are plugins for Chrome (and I'm sure other browsers) that will notify you when you receive a text or voice message regardless of what you are browsing at the time and also allow you to click on phone numbers on webpages on your desktop and call them either from your computer or any of the phones you have linked to the account.

These are just a few of the useful features of Google Voice. And unlike Apple products and MightyText, you aren't restricted to any devices or Operating systems, and unlike Apple products the person on the other end doesn't need to be using the same software you are using.

One of the most common types of potty training should be
very cheerful for your girl. Note: Although these tips apply to my experience with
my daughter, most children are physically ready to
potty train your toddler, eventually they will be
successfully trained. There are quite potty training
kids a few reasons for your son's fear of the toilet, being

Used MightyText for a while but had a lot of problems, both with Chrome and Firefox.
Happily switched to mySMS, which have some nice additional features (it's a great replacement for the default SMS app and can send SMS via data connection from the smartphone as well).

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment.

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
