Send and receive text messages from your laptop, PC, tablet, watch, TV, and any device with access to a web browser. Start by creating a Pulse account on your phone, and you will have instant access to all your messages.

Even if you don't want to use SMS and MMS on other devices, here are just a few of the features that make Pulse SMS the ultimate texting experience:
- Endless global and per-conversation theme options

- Delayed sending
- Snooze notifications

Supported Platforms
With our web messenger, you can send and receive SMS/MMS and manage the app from ANY device connected to the internet! This means you can text from your computer, whether it is a Mac, PC, or Linux machine, while sitting at work.

Not only is there a web app to send text and picture messages, Pulse SMS also has native messaging apps for Android tablets, MacOS, Windows computers, Android Wear, Google Chrome, Firefox, Linux desktops and even Android TV: https://messenger.klinkerapps.com/overview/

All of your conversations are stored in the cloud using strong end-to-end encryption, so you never have to worry about your data getting out. With Pulse, you get privacy and piece of mind, right out of the box: https://messenger.klinkerapps.com/encryption.html


Price
The Android side of this app is completely FREE, and will be forever - enjoy Pulse SMS on your phone and replace your boring old SMS/MMS messaging app.

To text from other devices, you can choose between a very small subscription fee, or a one-time payment. This allows me to fully encrypt your data since I don't need to sell it, like free services. Your security is paramount in the service, but that does mean a few dollars for hosting costs. Compare Pulse SMS to the competition's messenger apps and you will instantly see that they can't touch our prices.

For full pricing details, see here: https://messenger.klinkerapps.com/overview/pricing.html

-------

Pulse is the first true iMessage competitor for Android and is the premier web and computer messaging application. Everything is instant and setup is a breeze.

Please feel free to reach out! Unlike most developers you will find, I am prompt and more than happy to respond.

I do get a crazy amount of emails and questions every day, so I have created a pretty extensive FAQ and tutorial section to help me ease this load and allow me to spend a bit more time developing and adding new features to the app!

Your question may already be addressed there. Check it out: https://messenger.klinkerapps.com/help/

You weren't able to find your answer? No problem - before putting in that one star review, please feel free to reach out to @lukeklinker on Twitter, or send me an email to luke@klinkerapps.com. I am always happy to get back to you.

Enjoy the app!

Awesome app! I've been looking for an app like this for a long time and I've tried others but could never justify the monthly pricing for it. This app has more than reasonable costs and offers much more than other apps I've tried. The dev's seem very on top of things and ready to help whenever you need them. Honestly very impressed, you don't usually see this kind of service for the price and this good of development time behind it. Like seriously this app is the app of all apps. Full Review

My only initial issue was I was charged immediately for lifetime subscription during the trial period. Developer said he would refund me if I didn't like it (Good customer service in my book). Over 7 days later and I'm still using the app on my phone, tablet and desktop. Two suggestions: 1. The tablet and desktop versions need a large screen layout that lists the message and contact list at the same time, similar to Hangouts on desktop. Or at least give the option. 2. The color themes should allow you to select a base theme for all conversations and then customize individual ones the way you want. Right now you can either set a theme for all, or use the customize option that randomly picks themes for each conversation which forces you to manually change each conversation. Overall a great app that I hope will continue to improve and evolve over time. This is also great replacement for Hangouts refugees like myself. Full Review

Overall a useful app, especially given the ability to text from a laptop. However, it does not appear to have the ability to bcc a group of recipients, forcing all of them to get responses to a Happy Holidays text, for example. Since I can't have control of BCC versus Group chat, I simply have no permanent ongoing use for this app. So close, yet falls short of the mark in terms of basic features of any garden variety texting app. Full Review

Tried a couple of different texting apps including textra, handcent, chomp, and Google messages but stuck with Pulse SMS. It has a clean interface and I like that it separates your more recent conversations from past conversations. It may not have as much customization as some of the competitors, but it seemed more dependable with how it handled MMS messages. Overall, it's a solid messaging app that's never given me problems and does what I expect out of a messaging app. Full Review

This SMS app is different, in a good way. You will not only like it but will never want to use the native SMS app that came with your phone ever again. Try it out, you'll thank me later ☺️ Full Review

Nice clean UI. Love the Emojis being larger in size. Also love being able to send messages from web browser. Wish had ability to theme each contact in a group message. Sending GIFs using Gboard doesn't appear to work all the time it seems as well. Full Review

This is the only app that provides the most useful feature of iMessage, SMS from your phone on any other Android device without a cell number. I'm also glad it does not have all the infantile messaging clutter of other messangers. Full Review

Pulse doesn't display all messages received, even though they are visible in the default messages app. Developer refuses to recognize this as a problem so that alone warrants 0 star rating. You can't wash your hands of such an obvious bug and blame it on Android. Textra never has missing messages. Full Review

Used to love this app until I had to reinstall the app and now I can't sign in to the app to use it across my devices even though I have a subscription already. It says subscription found but when I try to log in, it tells me that something went wrong. Full Review

Nice app but sending and receiving small or large MMS on any devices (phone, PC, tablet) I have is a no-go. No failure messages and changing APN gives nothing. Unfortunately, after two wasted work days I'm heading back to Verizon Messenger+ which is spotty. I feel the problem lies with Verizon, not this app. Full Review

Don't know why blocking is made difficult? I receive 80% of text from spammers. I can't select multiple messages to block. I've to confirm every time I block a contact. Moreover I don't find any option to block by keywords. Full Review

honestly loved this app. I was super pumped when I realized how nicely it did it's job. however I had to stop using it because it seems to be nuking my battery pretty fast. even when it's just sitting in the background. if that can be resolved, I'll definitely keep using. Full Review

This is a very nice sms app. Just a little problem with the contact photo, like when i changed the contact name and photo, i have to close the app and open it again to see the changes made. Overall, this is the best app for me so far. Full Review

Love the app so far, only thing preventing me from giving 5 is the following issue. I have a Nexus 5 that I have installed the app on, messages sync quite well. But I mostly use it as a music device and it is not attached to a carrier so no sms card is installed. When I use it to reply to messages. After I am done typing every word it pops up a prompt asking me to select a Sim Cars that does not exist. It's a bit of a corner case I know but it is a bit annoying. Update (a bit late) : worked with the developer and he was able to resolve my issue really quickly Full Review

Coming from iPhone, one of the biggest features I wanted was the ability to text from my laptop, and this does it really well. In a perfect world, the Windows desktop client would be a UWP app with the ability to download media within the app rather than opening a webpage, but that's a pretty minor concern given how well Pulse works and its fair pricing. This is a solid app. Full Review

The ONLY text messaging app worth mentioning that has computer integration, where you can effectively send SMS from PC. Has a very clean interface, looks great, and integrates well with my phone notifications. Has no problem texting cellphones, sms service numbers (5 or 6 digit #s), or cellular provider info numbers. The only issue I have is that rotating the phone while in a particular thread of messages kicks me back to the list of SMS threads. Any text I have typed still is there, waiting to be sent or added to, so this is a minor annoyance. The developer actually respects his users. The typical "nag screen" asking for a review will only ever appear once. Wish other apps would follow this convention, some ask me every time I launch them, which gets old fast. One press of the back button in Pulse, and it never nags again! Inspired me to write this review. Full Review

Android users rejoice! This app works exactly as advertised. Works well on Windows and in the browser. Group messaging works too, which has been a struggle for other apps. Great price for lifetime subscription! Full Review

I'm loving it bc it says it can text from my tablet and all devices. But, so so far only I have been able to get it on my phone. Something is stopping me from getting it on my tablet. I have messaged the developer and I am waiting for a response that I can understand. When and if I am able to get it on my tablet as it is supposed to be allowed, I will happily give it a five-star Full Review

Best texting app I've ever used! It's lightweight and fast. A true imessage competitor and even better imo. The desktop application and website are extremely responsive and intuitive. I have a month-long subscription at the moment, but after it expires, I plan on buying a life-long purchase. Great job devs! Full Review

Loved this for a long time for my Nexus 6P and Pixel 1, but it's absolutely murdering my battery on Pixel 2. Until that gets addressed it's worth steering clear of. 48% of battery used, nearly every day, for minimal amount of texting with it. Full Review
