Type SMS messages on your Mac and send them via your iPhone.
The Wi-Fi connection is used, SMS client for iPhone is required (available free on the App Store). Your iPhone and the Mac computer must be on the same network.

Other features:
- auto connecting to iPhone SMS client
- reading recipients directly from Apple Contacts
- sending messages to an individual recipient or to a group
- import a group from a csv file
- creating message templates
- history of sending
- recent recipients list

Sending the SMS message must be confirmed on the iPhone due to security reasons - this confirmation is a feature of the Apple developing environment, in which the "SMS client" application is written. It is not possible to send a message without such a confirmation.

!!! Important connection information !!!
Both your Mac and your iPhone must be on the same Wi-Fi network.
SMS sender and SMS client use a standard Apple Bonjour service for discovering devices on the network, applications use an arbitrary port number between 49152 and 65535 (as any other third-party application).
If SMS sender is not able to find your iPhone on the network, it seems that ports 49152-65535 are blocked in your computer or in the router. Then, restart the router, the computer and relaunch the application on your iPhone.
Bonjour service (Multicast DNS) MUST be ENABLED in your router.


Release Notes:

- macOS Catalina 10.15 compatibility

Version 1.2.4
Review by Snyfuss Redynstruc

If you need to get the text from your computer to the iPhone, this app will work. - Most of the reviewers are pretty critical because they seem to want their Mac to act as a "dumb terminal" for the iPhone and allow them to, essentially, operate the iPhone from the Mac. This app will not do that. Nor will it seemlessly send texts to your phone to be sent to another phone and, then, have the other person's responses to your texts show up on your iMac. What it will do, however, is allow you to type long, long texts on your iMac, send them to the SMS app on your iPhone, and then hit send on the iPhone to get the message out. For me, this was worth the $1.99 because (a) I had an extremely long message to send and (b) I wanted to insure that the response came back to my iPhone rather than to some other "internet type of SMS service which allows you to send texts from your computer." I would hope that future versions of this app would incorporate some of what the critics are asking for. Even without those added features, this app is very useful.

Review by Joshua Dun

terrible - this is the dumbest thing ever. waste of $2. you have to connect every time to the app on your phone and on your mac, and it takes way more time then just typing it on your phone.
