Posted in mysms news by mysms

Maybe you have read yesterday’s post about our brand new Android tablet app, and thought what about us iPad users? No worries, we did not forget about you! Here it is, our Pre-Christmas present for you, the first of its kind, our mysms iPad app is available on the Apple App Store.

Truly native, simply beautiful

If you have used our web app on the iPad before, you will be pleased by the native iPad version. Instead using the existing HTML5-version, we have built everything natively from scratch. This led to a huge boost in performance that  you’ll notice as soon as you open the app.  We worked hard to provide you with the same smooth experience that you know from our web app, but added native elements that you love on your iPad, such as native notifications and gestures. On top of that we tweaked the design and usability so that the app just looks and feels right. You’ll know what we mean as soon as you give it a try.


Packed with features

mysms for iPad is as feature-rich as the web app. You can send and receive messages on your iPad and take advantage of the bigger display and keyboard. Your messages are synchronized with your smartphone, meaning you can start a conversation on your iPad, and continue anytime on your phone. Texts and pictures to other mysms users are free of charge and sent via your mobile data connection or WIFI. If you combine the iPad app with an Android phone, you can even send texts via your mobile carrier and reach every contact from your address book via SMS.


It’s easy to get started

If you are a first time user of mysms, you need to download one of our phone apps first and create a mysms account there. Your messages are then synced to our mysms cloud and you can access them from any web-enabled device, e.g. your iPad. Now is the time to download mysms onto your iPad, enter your number and password, and start texting like never before 😉


We are very curious what you think of our work of the last few months. Let us know in the comments!

You’d like to receive a different ringtone for incoming messages? No problem, you can also change it in the preferences.

mysms now integrates with Evernote

Posted in mysms news by mysms

We are very excited to share our latest news with you. mysms now integrates with Evernote – a cloud service that helps you remember everything. The integration with Evernote enables you full archiving of text messages from any of our mobile applications directly to the cloud.

From the beginning our goal was to provide you with a service that frees your text messages from your mobile phone to the cloud. Being able to send and receive your text messages on all of your devices is the core of our product and the main reason why many of you love mysms. However, what was clearly missing was a searchable and portable archive for your messages – until now.


Why Evernote?

For most of us text messages are closely tied to your personal life. We share our most important moments by sending pictures, reach out for help when we need it or simply say hello when it’s been a while that we haven’t met a good friend.

When we are searching for an old message that contains an address, name or phone number that we desperately need, our messages become more than just a text. They become an extension of our memory. That is why Evernote is the ideal partner for us.


How it works

Once you connect your mysms account with Evernote, every new text message you send or receive will be automatically saved to your Evernote notebook called “mysms”. Every message thread with one of your contacts will be stored in a separate note. If your text messages include pictures, videos or other attachments, these files will also be saved to your Evernote notebook (without any size limits that you need to keep in mind). Within Evernote searching your texts is simple and easy, even if you are looking for a text in threads with a huge amount of messages.


Here is a quick tutorial on how to connect your mysms account with Evernote. If you need further help you can always reach out to us on our community page.


We are very excited about this release, and are curious what you think about it. Let us know in the comments!
