Many different programs offer SMS messaging on a desktop computer; among the most popular apps are Pushbullet, MightyText, and DeskSMS. These Android apps make texting from a computer as easy as texting from a phone.
Pushbullet, which focuses on text notification rather than text communication, is a very popular computer texting app. With Pushbullet, the user receives a small notification in his browser window whenever his phone gets a text or email notification. However, users cannot directly respond to messages using the app. DeskSMS is an alternative that allows users to both receive and respond to text messages, but it is not free.
