Access and reply to text messages on your computer or tablet. If you sit at a desk all day, this makes texting infinitely faster and easier. Just add the extension to your browser (all 5 major browsers are supported) and you get notifications whenever you receive a text. There are many cool, free features, including texting from Gmail and using it like a chatbox on Facebook. One of the cool things about the web app is that you can attach a GIF from a set of GIFs they have readily available to you to any message. While the app has it's core functionality for free, there is a paid subscription available for power users with even more cool features.

Install Mighty Text on your phone and the corresponding app on your tablet and web browser to be able to text from any device. This isn't a separate messaging account like Facebook or WhatsApp. This simply sends a text. I type it in my computer and my friend gets a new SMS from my phone number. You can even get notified of new texts on your other devices.
