    Hi folks. I figured I'd try Windows Phone again since the 8.1 update was released. One of the MAJOR issues I'm having is that I text a lot during the day from my computer. When I was on android, this was done through an app called MightyText. I cannot for the life of me find an app like this for Windows Phone 8/8.1. Does anyone have a solution to this? I want to like windows phone, I really do, but there are just missing pieces like this that bum me out.

    Basically, you want an app that allows you to send text messages via your PC, correct? This might be a long shot but... with which carrier are you with?

    Yes exactly what I want to do. MightyText was awesome for this but no Windows Phone version. Carrier is ATT. Thank you for your reply!

    I think I just found the answer to my own problem. ATT Messages online. Never knew it existed. Works like a charm. A little clunky but certainly usable. Cool! Now if they just had a Windows Client app so I didn't have to live on the page with it but otherwise very happy!

    Try SMS Easy Type, seems it exactly for you. Am not authorized to post links, so cannot post a link to Store here. Just enter "SMS Easy Type" and search.

    Yeah I've been down that road already. That app/setup is pretty terrible.

    I used to use the Nokia Suite on Symbian to do this all the time. It was perfect. It was excellent for pasting texts translated from Google Translate. MySMS is good but has just dropped the windows phone platform. Existing users can carry on though so maybe there is a way of getting a file for manual installation.

    Just for info, if anyone is on O2 in the UK they have a pc app to allow this too. Only discovered it in last couple of weeks. The download page on O2's website says supports inly upto W7 I.e not W8 but in reality works fine on my W8 tablet, I guess what they meant is it isn't available as a metro/modern app, its desktop only. TU go its called

    Verizon also has a web based texting service that uses your number. Been using it for quite a while now, just wish they'd release an app for ANY Windows devices.
