Text from PC App

Hello,

 

Is there an app out there that, when connected to my PC, when I receive a text message it pops up on my monitor and lets me read the text as well as respond to the text directly from the PC it is hooked up to?

 

I work in an office with my phone connected to the PC most of the day and it's annoying to keep picking up my phone when I get a text.  It'd help me maintain focus if I could just alt+tab, see the text, respond if necessary and alt+tab back to what I was doing.

 

Thanks!

Re: Text from PC App

Hmmm... you can use Bayalink to view your BlackBerry on your PC. But that is sorta expensive.

 

Does your employer have a recommendation about what to do with text messaging during work?

 

You might also look at DexRex software for viewing SMS on the PC. I don't think it does exactly what you asked, but it might suffice.

Re: Text from PC App

My employer doesn't mind us text messaging so long as our projects get done.  It's just a matter of flow to me, personally.  It's easier to keep my thought process in tact if I don't have to physically stop what I'm doing and pick up my phone so I was wondering if there was something out there to help with that.  Other than that thanks for the app recommendation.  I'll look into it.
