    Default Tablet Talk vs My SMS

    I found MYSMS when I was looking at Tablet Talk for my Nexus 7. Hated having to switch devices for a text message. Reading the descriptions I'm not seeing that big of a difference but general look, and name, and price. Thoughts?

    With mysms it looks like you have to do it with a browser. With tablet talk, you get an app. That alone is worth it for me. I was wary at first but now I'm really loving tablet talk. Got it for free thanks to the 25$ Google gave me.

    No it's an app. You can use a browser on the PC but on the tablet its like tablet talk as far as the app to click on.

    Why not use Google Voice? Is it not compatible with the 7?

    I use SyncSMS on my tablet and I plan on setting it up on my wife's Nexus when it get's here. It has worked pretty flawlessly for me so far.

    I keep the two numbers separate. I could text from Google Voice and do, and but this is to use my non Google voice number.

    Never tried My SMS but with tablet talk you cannot receive MMS (pics/video) messages. Something to consider.

    Because it's a service and if you want to send and receive texts from people you all have to be on the same service. At least that's what their website says.

    I use mysms and I have Verizon. Most of my friends have sprint and at&t. It works just fine. The only thing is, it sends the msg slow at times.
    Privacy is overrated :P

    MYSMS I get everything including photos. Working great since I posted this. Even changed phones because of a pool mishap and it's had stored my texts in the cloud.

    It has its own service but it can use your mobile carrier for the phone you have the base app on. It works great with my Epic 4G Touch

    I got the impression that I and anyone I participate in texting with would have to have mysms accounts in order for it to work. Yes? No?

    You load it on your cell phone then load the tablet version on your Nexus 7. It syncs it across to send it to whomever you can text from any other testing app, but SMS or MMS.

    You can send messages to people via MYSMS service in the case of two people who have it and it won't need to go through your carrier

    Tablet Talk is the best text messaging app! Setup is easy. I just got the updated version (1.6.2). Download it today at Google Play Store

    I think it is great... if I could send MMS with it, it would be my #1 app of the year!

    +1 for Tablet Talk. I haven't had any MMS messages arrive since I started using it, but it is supposed to be able to view them. If it included sending MMS from the tablet, it would be hard to beat.

    I'm a fan of Tablet Talk, particularly since it doesn't require me to send any data through yet someone else's servers. I like the ability to answer and make calls through my phone and Bluetooth headset. What I don't like is the fact that if I answer or start a call with my phone in my pocket, the screen on the phone unlocks. I've looked in the settings but haven't found a way to keep the screen off.
    Has anyone figured this out?

    I used tablet talk when I first got my N7, but have used mighty text on my computer to text for years. They've now come out with a tablet version (in beta) that is great. I get notifications of calls and texts, and texts go through quickly. I had problems with tablet talk losing the connection, and I'd have to reboot both the phone and N7 to reestablish the connection and don't have that issue with mighty text. I also don't have to have Bluetooth on with it.

    I'm not affiliated with them at all. It's just another option.

    I use Tablet Talk over wifi (no bluetooth connection between devices) and haven't had it drop the connection. Might text does sound interesting, though.

    For some reason, I could never get tablet talk to connect via WiFi...I finally gave up and Bluetooth seemed to work for the most part. Then when mighty text came out with the beta tablet app, I went to that.

    Can it use Google voice # as the phone you link too?
    Right now I'm using Tapatalk to link to Google voice #. But if tablet talk has the ability to do this then I will switch cause I see tablet talk has widgets also.

    For sending text messages via Google Voice, why not just use the Google Voice app? You can have it installed on both phone and tablet and read/send from either. Messages are synchronized between them as well.

    Tablet Talk just had another update. Now it will send MMS messages from the tablet. Nice to see them keeping the updates coming!

    I was using Tablet Talk when I first got my N7, but didn't really like the syncing and UI of it all. Like someone else on this page I'd been using the Mighty Text extension on my Chrome browser, and they rolled out a beta tablet app which does everything I could ask for and syncs it all through my Google account. I'd say it's worth looking at when it finally hits the Play Store.
