BETTER THAN INSTANT MESSAGING
Messenger apps can only send messages between people who use the app. With Pinger Desktop, you can send to other Desktop users, your friends using Pinger or Textfree on their mobile devices and to ANY mobile phone. All your texts are 100% free. It’s that simple.
EVEN BETTER WHEN YOUR FRIENDS HAVE PINGER
When your friends have Pinger, texting gets even better. You and your friends get unlimited free texts (goodbye 160 character limit!) to and from one another, anywhere in the world. Even send picture messages (MMS), free! Just have them download Pinger on their desktop at pinger.com, or have them download Pinger on their mobile phone, iPod or iPad.
OUTSIDE THE US? GET A US PHONE NUMBER AND TEXT FOR FREE
Do you have friends who live outside the US? With Pinger Desktop, they can get a US phone number and text from their computer to anyone in the US for free. And anyone in the US can text them on a local US phone number. It’s easy. They just download Pinger Desktop, and during sign-up they select the US as the country, provide a US zip code and select a free local number in that area code. They can be in Paris or Bombay and still text any mobile phone in the US for free, even someone without a smartphone or Pinger. Canadian phone numbers are also available.

Works Great ! - Because I dropped all my connecton with Googles Services because of their corperate policy on reading all gmail and their spooling of personal data on users in the Google system, I lost access to Google Voice and the associated texting app that was built into it. Ping on my Mac Desktop and TextFree on my iPhone are a great alternative, in fact the user interface and smoothness of the design is much better than what Google had going. i consider the small $5.95 cost to take the ads off is a very small and reasonable price to pay for the fine and very functiuonal software and service. I know many of you, me included, had to roll through dozens of messaging apps before we found something that works for us. This one is at the top of the heap for me, I suggest you give it a try.
It WAS great till' - It decided to crash everytime I open it :(

Constant Crashing - After trying to use the Google Contacts import option i get double txt messages on the app. The app crashes everytime a new txt appears. It was less prominent when I first tried the import but now its constantly happening. Other than that issue the app works great. I’ve never had a problem til now. The app could use a few upgrades like the iOS app. And it would be great if we could pay to remove the ad bar like in the iOS app.
Broken out of the box - Downloaded and installed. Opened it up and the Pinger icon just kept bouncing up and down in the dock. iMac Mountain Lion. Not ready for prime time.
New 1.4.12 - I ABSOLUTELY hate this new version. Give us back the old and take this back to the drawing board. Don't get all the texts contents nor are all of mine sent some times. If you are looking for something like this, the old one was good never had an issue.
Loved it when it worked - I gave it one star because I can’t even use it. as soon as I log into my account it crashes. Using brand new 2013 model iMac. I changed the settings to not make a noise when i receive a new message and ever since I changed a few preferences it crashes every time I log in. I loved the app when it works but I can’t even sign in to change the preferences back anymore. It works if I create a new profile, but my old one is linked to my email so I need those contacts.
Update makes fan run on high - Ever since I installed the update, my MacBook Pro's fan has been running on high (over 15 minutes now). Not sure what they updated, but this is a change for the worse, and I won't try it again until there's a fix. Long time user on my iPhone and I LOVE the app there, but this one can use some work….
