the messages app is great but is there a tweak or something to text non imessages people?

maybe via my google voice number atleast?

in cydia there's a tweak called "sms GV extension"

integrates Google Voice SMS into your Messages app

is there something like this for the mac ?

Messages on the Mac allows for creating additional accounts. That said, I've the closest thing I've heard to what you're asking for is Project Amy (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/03/04/project-amy-allows-users-to-send-app-net-private-messages-via-messages-for-os-x/)

I meant to say regular texting like from at&t or google voice not yahoo messenger or services like that

It should by possible with Jabber to SMS transport used in iMessages.app - I've no idea if there's some SMS transport in US / UK .. - Transport must be setup in adium or Psi as iMessages.app doesn't support XMPP/Jabber server discovery
