We just launched our second Kickstarter to raise funds for marketing. Visit https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1703578021/help-yappyim-grow-android-sms-from-computer-or-tab for more info
This morning, PPLCONNECT announced that they are shifting their focus away from the consumer:
Although we greatly value the time and feedback you have given us over the years, we have decided to pivot from being a consumer driven business to focus on partnerships with mobile manufacturers, operators and businesses. For this reason, the free consumer version will no longer be available.
Yappy’s presence as the best SMS from computer/tablet service is now even stronger. With both Pushbullet and MightyText restricting free accounts to a handful of SMS messages a day, and PPLCONNECT refocusing away from the consumer market, Yappy’s goals to fill a need rise in value.
If you are a PPLCONNECT user give Yappy a spin before you are left out in the cold at the end of the month!
This means Yappy users who use ChompSMS as their main SMS app on Android phones using KitKat (4.4) and above can:
- Mark messages as read remotely
- See sent MMS messages on the SMS app
- Delete a conversation when it is deleted online
- Delete a single message when deleted online
- Better deliver-ability and notifications on messages
All remotely from any tablet or the web, at https://www.yappy.im/web

We are extremely excited to announce the launch of our native Windows App! Once you download, install, and login to Yappy for Windows, the app will run in the background and be available from your notification icon area.
You can now receive notifications, send and reply to text messages, send photos, and more without a browser extension.
The desktop app will also let you pop open any conversation as a chat head! Quickly access your conversation at a glance or reply in a second without leaving your main task. This feature is incredibly useful if you are a multi-tasker or have multiple monitors.
New message notifications also show up and can hang around indefinitely until you view the conversation to make sure you don’t miss a beat! This was a popular feature request that we were unable to provide with our Chrome and Firefox extensions.
You can grab the Yappy Windows installer at https://update.yappy.im/yappy_installer.zip
