MightyText ensures you never miss a text message
iMessage is incredibly useful…you know, provided you have an iPhone. If you don’t, you were up the creek. Until now.
For those unfamiliar, since iPhone owners have largely stopped gloating over features, iMessage allows you to send and receive text messages in your browser. Android largely lacked this feature, because, well, Google’s got better things to do.
Fortunately, some ex-employees of the Goog have fixed this situation, with an app called MightyText.
It’s fairly straightforward to install, although I recommend, having set it up, that you download and use Chrome: for obvious reasons, it’s a lot easier to use in Chrome than the other browsers on the market.
First, you download the MightyText app from the Google Play store. It’s free, and it’s also a tiny application, so it won’t take up much space. Once it’s installed, you open it, click the big blue button, and it connects to your Google account.
After that, it’s simply a matter of configuring your browser and launching the web app. It works perfectly, even if your phone isn’t nearby.
In short, now you have no excuse to duck text messages. But at least replying to them will be quick.
