I send a lot of text messages, but when I’m at home I’m often working at my computer rather than being attached to my phone. Today I downloaded MightyText from the Google Play store (it’s free), and I love it!


There’s a chrome extension available which pops up a little message in the corner of the screen whenever you receive an SMS, and you can click it to reply. You can also initiate a new message by clicking the app’s icon at the top of the chrome window.

This wouldn’t normally be enough to prompt me to write a blog post, except for one thing - the pop up appears on my computer two or three seconds before my phone makes the text alert noise. How is that even possible?
