We believe your time, productivity and intellectual focus are very important while you are diligently working at your PC. Various interruptions can sometimes lower your productivity level and hinder your focus. Text Desk aims to help you stay focused on your current task while maintaining your current level of productivity. Text Desk conveniently brings text messages sent to your smart phone right to your PC.
At our office, we work on our PCs all day. We get tired of having to stop what we are doing, pickup our phone, unlock it, navigate to the text messaging app, read the message, optionally reply to the message, put the phone back down, and then go back to what we were working on. With Text Desk running on your Android smart phone and your Windows 8 PC, a brief, friendly notification automatically pops up on your PC screen when you receive a text message on your smart phone. This allows you to briefly glance at the message and optionally reply to the message right from your PC without ever touching your phone. If you really value your time, productivity and focus, Text Desk is for you!
Text Desk requires a Windows 8 PC and an Android powered smart phone running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or later. You MUST download and run Text Desk on both your devices. You can download Text Desk for Windows 8 for $3.99 USD from the Windows Store using the following link:
How does Text Desk Work?
When you receive a text message on your smart phone, Text Desk forwards your message to the cloud. From the cloud, your message is pushed to your paired Windows 8 PC and a pop-up notification appears on your PC screen. When you reply to a text message from your PC, or send a new text message from your PC, Text Desk forwards your message back to the cloud. From the cloud, your message is pushed to your smart phone and then sent from your smart phone to the appropriate recipient like a normal text message.
Why is Text Desk Different?
We truly believe that the sensitive information on your smart phone should be kept as safe as possible on your device and NOT in the cloud. We developed Text Desk because we were very unhappy with the fact that our competitors store all your personal information in the cloud. That means all your contacts, their mobile phone numbers, and every text message you send and receive is stored in the cloud. We DO NOT permanently store any contact information, text messages, or any other personal information about you in the cloud! If you are truly concerned about your privacy and adamant about protecting your sensitive data, Text Desk is for you!
No Personal Information Required!
Text Desk is all about your privacy and protecting your data. You are NOT forced to setup any sort of an "account" with us. We DO NOT require your mobile phone number, name, email, or Facebook login to use Text Desk. The ONLY information we store about you in the cloud is a few bits of anonymous information about your paired devices so we can direct incoming and outgoing text messages to the correct recipients.
No Browser Based Texting!
We believe in providing you the best user experience possible. That's why all our Text Desk apps are built with tools specifically designed for the platform you are using. While browser based solutions do have certain advantages, we feel like those advantages are geared more toward US as an app maker rather than YOU the app consumer. If you want to enjoy the best user experience possible while texting from your PC, Text Desk is for you!
