Despite living in a wonderland of messaging apps, many of us still rely on boring old SMS, which is unfortunately tied to your phone. Pushbullet and EvolveSMS make it easy to text from your desktop.
Pushbullet has already become one of our favourite apps for allowing you to sync notifications and move data between devices. Now Pushbullet can work with EvolveSMS (so long as it's your default SMS app, which may be a dealbreaker for some) to allow you to reply to text messages directly from your desktop.
To use the feature, you'll need to sign up for the EvolveSMS beta community, as well as the Pushbullet beta community. Finally, update the Pushbullet extension from the Chrome store, and you're ready to go.
