Presentation of HeySms
I made a small application to send and receive sms on your computer without a specific software. You just have to use your instant messaging client ... Which have to be compatible with Bonjour protocol.
I made this application because my girlfriend send me a lot of sms when I'm working ... Now I can answer her without taking my N900 ...
