Hi there! This is a bit of a poll/question regarding apps for texting. Right now, I currently use Textra (that operates through my Verizon number), but I can only access my messages on my phone. However, I have tablets, laptops, etc, that I would like to be able to 'text' from. I realize that things like Facebook messenger, google hangouts, Telegram, etc, exist and I can use those, but those apps do not look at your current phones text data base, and as far as I know, there is no way to upload a current text file/SMS database from a Titanium Backup file so you can keep a conversation going with those existing telephone numbers.

So...is anyone aware of an app that is/can:

Cross-platform: Windows/Android
Cross-device: phone/laptop/tablet
Uses/can database current text message (SMS) history
Uses/can database current pictures in those messages

I have searched around and tried various apps, but none that I have tried fit the bill. I've searched through various pages, but most only support their own internal messages.

All ideas are welcome! Thanks in advance!

You can try "my sms". It provides most of the features you are looking for

I believe "Pulse" can do it, not entirely sure the extent but it is free to use on your phone and there is an option to use it on other devices $10.99 lifetime, but there is a subscription for less and it includes 7 day free trial.... It is from a developer that has done a nice job on his other apps too...
