mysms launches Windows 8 desktop and tablet applications for sending & receiving SMS cloud-synced with one’s mobile phone,
April 16, 2012 – Graz, Austria – mysms™ – a world leader in cloud-based SMS communications – today announced immediate availability of its new Windows 8 app for sending and receiving SMS messages directly from a Windows PC and tablet. Fully living up to the Windows 8 vision of a cloud-connected experience, mysms synchronizes text messages between a user’s mobile phone, tablet and desktop and automatically backs up messages in the cloud. By using the larger screen and the full-sized keyboard mysms makes the best out of texting and provides its users with fast and easy texting for every device.
mysms is a platform-independent SMS service that synchronizes texts between a wide range of mobile, web and desktop platforms – all through a single cloud-based account. mysms allows users to create, send and receive text messages on any device – just like using their smartphones. mysms also enables users to write their texts using a full PC or laptop keyboard and read/respond to them from virtually any device.
As one of the finalists for the Windows Startup challenge, mysms stood up to competing app submissions from around the world in the first round. With direct support from UX and engineering experts from Microsoft during the competition, the app now takes full advantage of the Windows 8 environment and innovative design.
“The launch of mysms for Windows 8 PCs and tablets is a huge deal for our users,” said Martin Pansy, CEO and co-founder of mysms. ”We get a lot of requests to bring the connected messaging experience of mysms to every platform on the market. Having seen a great uptake in tablet usage since our launches for Android tablet and iPad in December, our focus on Windows 8 was the next logical step. We are confident to provide our users with one of the best apps available for Windows 8.”
mysms is also based on an open API. 3rd-party services can integrate with mysms and create unique features on top of SMS communication (as was accomplished with Evernote). The app is available on a wide range of platforms, including:
- Android (phone & tablet)
- iOS (iPhone, iPad)
- Windows Phone 7 and 8 (Beta)
- Mac® OS
- Microsoft Windows 8
- Chrome® Web browser app
