Mighty Text for Android, an app that lets you text from your computer’s Web browser. This app allows you to read and send text and picture messages on either the Mighty Text Web page or on a plug-in on your browser. Mighty Text also alerts when you are getting a phone call. Basically, you can tuck your phone away and out of sight for most of the day and just work from one screen. Mighty Text is simple to install and use. First, you’ll want to download the Android app to your phone. Once you’ve got that installed, load it up, and on the first screen you’ll see a Complete Setup button. Tap that to link the service with your Google/Gmail account (this is how the app will communicate with your desktop browser).
Now you’ll need to navigate your computer browser to the Mighty Text Chrome extension page. Click the + button and then click Add when you see the pop-up. You should see that your new Mighty Text extension icon has been added to the right of your browser address bar. Click that to load up the Mighty Text Web page, and sign in with your Google/Gmail account on your first visit. Now you’re all synced up and ready to go.
If you want to send a text message, just click the Mighty Text Chrome extension button, or navigate to mightytext.net/app, select a contact (already wirelessly synced from your phone’s contact list) and type a message or attach a picture (or both). Mighty Text will then send the message to your phone to be shipped off just as a regular text would be. When your phone receives a text message, a notification pop-up will appear on the right side of your computer’s Web browser. There will be a Reply button, and when you click it, a drop-down window showing the conversation will appear. From this window, you can enter text or attach a picture to respond with.
The Mighty Text service can also send text messages from Android tablets. All you’ll have to do is install the tablet version of Mighty Text from the Play Store on your device and sign in with your same Google/Gmail account. And that’s all she wrote (or texted). Now that you can send SMS and MMS messages without taking your eyes off your work, you’ll have no excuse for not being textually active at the office.
