Texting From Desktop via Wifi or USB: Multitasking Triumph

Imagine being a complete master of multitasking. You have your tabbed browsing, bluetooth headset(well maybe not), and anything else that allows you to do a millions things at once. You're in the zone; doing homework, playing COD, surfing the web, writing a book, riding a bear, and then...beep beep, you get a text message and everything comes to a screeching halt so you can look away from your desktop to answer the text.

Well fear that no longer!

Texdro is an app that allows you to connect your Android device and computer wirelessly.

On your phone you get a simple app that allows you to turn the feature on and off. On your desktop you get a contacts list and a whole list of settings allowing you to change notifications, etc.

Now, I'm sure many of you already have seen, have, use, or have used apps that allow you to text through your phone from your desktop. I'm also sure that many have not even thought of the idea. So this is to those of you who are looking to take your multitasking skills to a whole 'notha level.

App can be found at http://www.crackedsun.com/texdro/. The app is free but the developer also offers a paid version with more features.

Also, tried as I might I could not find a similar app that works for the iPhone. Sorry guys. :(
