The TabletSMS application that is available from the Google Play Store is an extension to the extremely popular DeskSMS service that users have been enjoying on their Android devices for quite some time. For those that may not be familiar with what DeskSMS brings to the table, it is basically an installation that allows users of Android smartphones to send and intercept messages from a variety of services such as network texting, Google Talk or GMail. The app has been extremely popular due to the fact that it essentially allows users to send text messages that originate from their number, using popular messaging browsers or chat clients like Trillian or Beejive.
One of the great things about DeskSMS, and one of the reasons it has proved such a smash hit amongst the Android community, is the fact that it allows such versatility when sending messages. The power that the app brings means that users are no longer required to permanently have their device in hand to send messages, perfect for when being productive on a PC, allowing messages to be sent from the computer rather than having to keep picking up a mobile device. Conversations that are ongoing are also viewable through a website online as well as having the option to use various browser extensions to enhance the experience.
DeskSMS has also brought the ability to text directly from a tablet device, but it was never an ideal experience and could have potentially brought a bad user experience to those who attempted it. The release of TabletSMS is an attempt to resolve that by bringing the power and functionality specifically designed for the tablet. The process is extremely simple. DeskSMS needs to be installed on the Android smartphone that the user wants the text messages to originate from. The free of charge TabletSMS application needs to be downloaded from the Play Store and installed on the relevant tablet. The process is as simple as that. Messages that are sent and received will now show up on the tablet.
TabletSMS is a great little utility for those who regular make use of their tablet devices. With the manufacturers quickly cottoning onto the fact that consumers are purchasing more and more tablets, it looks like it could quickly become an indispensable app for Android users.
