Hopefully this is okay to post in this section. Although this app is payed for on the Android Market I am offering it to the XDA community for free.

SMS2PC is a small app that runs in the background on Windows, Mac and Linux and allows you to send/receive messages via your Android phone. This, at the time of release, was the first SMS sending app for Android. There are now lots of alternatives but I think my app still has the polish and desktop integration (you don't need to keep browser open) that some people prefer.

You can download the APK attached, copy over through USB etc.

To download the desktop client, visit: w w w .geekyscott. com / sms2pc/ (sorry i cant post links....)

I hope you will all enjoy the app. Please don't post it on other websites as I would like this to be an XDA-exclusive thing. In a few months when I get the time to clean my source, I will upload the source for everyone to use/extend.

Features:
  • Auto PC location (no need to enter IP address on WIFI)
  • Forwards SMS from mobile phone to desktop (osx, windows or linux(beta))
  • Multi-send messages from desktop
  • Phone address book sync with phone
  • Handles send notifications and delivery notifications
  • Secure Encryption
  • Customizable interface
  • USB support (enable debugging on phone)
  • WIFI support
  • Connect over internet via 3G
  • Syncs message history
  • Message smiles/emoticons
  • Custom desktop audio notifications
  • Streamlined, simple and clear interface



Thanks for being a great community.

p.s. My old account is ScottishGeek, it would be nice to merge that with this if any mods read this.

Does your cell phone need signal to send the messages to your PC?
Or does it forward messages straight off the network?

It can link to your computer via USB, WiFi or Cell. Cell isn't recommended unless you have a good quality 3G network. It will be able to send a message as long as you have the smallest connection to your cell tower. I for example, leave my phone in an area in my flat I get signal (near the window) and use my laptop to send receive deep :P in my living room where normally I am in a black spot.

So wait. This application will install on my PC, connect to my Android phone, and allow me to send SMS text messages to my phone contacts on my PC? I tried airdriod for that but I had to refresh in order to see new messages. Which was an inconvenience. If this is the case with this app, will it work in real time?

thank you very much for this. may i ask for another feature?

i'm using a dual sim phone so would it be possible to have an option to choose from which simcard to send an sms in the sms2pc desktop client?

At this time there is no support for these messengers... but there is a possibility to make this happens. It really depends if the support 3rd party API's or if they have a simple database I can hook into. But sending may be a problem. Ill have a look.

If the Android API supports switching between dual sim then I will be able to implement this. I will have a look in the next few days.

Hi friend.. I think there is a problem between your program and Cerbelus. This morning I have been testing sending messages. Later, i´seen seen my phone communication has stopped working and then i have had to reset my device because was hanged. After reset and phone communications right i´ve received a message from Cerbelus with an alert message due SIM change. Now my Samsung SII works ok again but i turned off SMS2PC. Very strange. Can there be a conflict??
