Macworld shows how to use SMS Mac to keep on track with digital reminders.
SMS text messaging on the Macintosh (and iPhone)
Why use your mobile phone to send an SMS when you have your Mac keyboard in front of you?
If you'd like an easier way to send SMSs than using the tiny numeric keypad on your mobile phone, then SMS Mac is for you.
SMS Mac enables you compose a text message on your Mac and send it via the Internet.
That's right, to send messages, you don't need your mobile phone!
With SMS Mac, you no longer depend on your mobile phone network to send text messages, you only need an internet connection.
You can run SMS Mac in different ways: as a Dashboard Widget, as an Address Book plugin, or as a Yahoo! Widget.
If you also use Windows, we also offer a Send SMS Yahoo! Widget for Windows XP.
SMS Mac integrates seamlessly with your Contacts (previously called Address Book).
With the SMS Mac Address Book plugin installed, you simply open the Contact card of your friend or family member, click the mobile label and choose the command Send SMS from the popup menu.
You can also select a group of contacts and send an SMS to all members of the group!
SMS Mac also supports AppleScript. The SMS Mac Scripting application allows you to send an SMS when a specific event occurs. You can use
it, for example, with iCal. You can configure iCal and SMS Mac to send yourself an SMS to remind you of an important meeting. On a Mac OS X
server, you can use it to send the system administrator an SMS alert when a certain condition occurs. Several example scripts are included.
SMS Mac is not only a user-friendly way to send text messages, it is also a highly reliable one: For every SMS you send, you get a delivery report.
The iPhone, iPad and iPod touch version of SMS Mac, SMS touch,
is available from the
You can share your SMS balance between the two programs.
Each SMS will cost you only $0.10 whether you're sending locally or to a foreign country. No roaming costs are involved.
For the use of the software of SMS Mac, the plug-in and widget, we use a subscription model. A subscription to SMS Mac costs $10 per year.
You can purchase a subscription using PayPal or eSellerate. The subscription will entitle you to free updates of the plug-in and widget during one year.
The initial purchase price of $15 consists of $10 for the subscription and $5 for 50 SMS. You've used up all the 50 SMS?
No problem, just recharge SMS Mac with 100 SMS for only $10. When you recharge with 500 SMS or 1000 SMS, the price per SMS will, of course, be lower.
No commercials are tagged to your message, the entire message (all 160 characters) is yours.
