    Hi, does anyone know of a mac app that does the same thing as the messages app but to android phones. So that you can send sms from your iphone to an android phone but from an app on the mac ?
    Thanks.

    I use mighty text to text from Chrome browser on Mac if that's what you're looking for. I have a Galaxy Nexus and it works great.

    This functionality has been removed from Mac OS X with the Leopard release unfortunately. You used to be able to send, receive text messages and phone calls from the Address Book directly.

    The only thing I can remotely recommend in Lion or ML is setting up iChat with SMS sending:

    I heard that iOS 6 will combine your phone number with your apple ID, so you should be able to 'text' from your mac on it. iOS 6 isn't out until Octoberish, so if you can wait, I think that is a feature from it.

    Thanks guys. Considering all the options, I think I will wait if anything new crops up.
