Here’s a little diversion from the our black-and-white, 5-4 world: smartphone apps. What’s the best app you’ve installed lately?
Here’s mine: Mighty Text. This app is for Android, and it allows you to use your computer to send texts from your phone. Why? If you’re like me, you have a close circle of friends and family who text you when they want to get hold of you right away. Even though you’re in front of a computer for a good part of the day, you need to pull out your phone and reply (slowly) on the phone keyboard. Mighty Text lets you respond to texts using your computer keyboard, and it shows desktop alerts with the name of the person texting you along with the contents of the text. It’s free and has been flawless so far.
