PiggySMS (formerly WebSMSLib) is a nice alternative to send SMS from your carrier's Web site. It automates all the boring stuff. It's easy as the cell phone: compose, click, sent!

It gives you one-click access to your mobile contacts from the Address Book, remember recents destination and link destination numbers with used accounts.PiggySMS also support multiple accounts for each operator and you it supports CAPTCHA's.

PiggySMS is a cocoa-objectivec port of famous JackSMS service for Windows/Java phones. It will also be available soon for iPhone.

It can be extended to support new carriers writing a plugin. A thoroughly more...

Does not appear to support US carriers like AT&T.

First experience, has crashed on loading services the automatic way. Crashed doing it manually, but now I have "51". Crashes when I try to add a service. Absolutely unusable. But a great idea!!! 2 stars for effort and 1 for it looking like it would work nice...

I am using Mac OS X 10.5.6 on a PowerBook G4 1.5 Ghz.

Seems to have some memory leaks (10MB on launch, but climbs quickly thereafter); tons of interface bugs (changed account names don't stick, services are listed as "never updated" directly after an update, many essential fields and drop-downs are still in Italian); a lot of popular services are missing (where are sipGate and the US carriers?); and the one working service I could find, Vyke, repeatedly froze and called up the spinning beach ball after 40% of the SMS was sent.

Oh, and quirky Address Book formattings, like, say, +44 for the country code and area codes in parentheses, appear to cause PiggySMS to short-circuit.

The idea sounds promising, but a 1.0 release this is most certainly not. More like a 0.1.

if you are using one of these services take a moment to write a mail to me. We can add supports for more services easily.

Supports for companies like T-Mobile, Cingular and Verizon in USA would be highly appreciated.

This definitely looks like unfinished, unpolished software.
Address book parsing is ugly and shows a lot of null null data and is hard to navigate.
selecting smsdiscount no account would not allow me to click ok until i fill in an account

also this would be good as a dashboard widget.

Very useful app... when it will match!
I've tried to use three Italian accounts (Alice, TIM and Vodafone); this is the report:
Alice (10 steps) => error occurred before asking for captcha ("service not available", but with WebSMS Widget it matches - login elements verified)
TIM =>ok until it asks for captcha (however the captcha window is too small, it's very hard to read); after that "connection established, downloading..."; after several seconds/minutes, if i push on "continue" button, it aborts
VODAFONE => error occurred before asking for captcha ("site on maintenance"; however, also WebSMS Widget does'nt actually match (but not before asking for captcha; only after, in the window asking for captcha, it appears an "?" instead of carachters, also with "Vodafone Italia NEW plugin" installed).
So, I'll be glad to use this app instead of WebSMS Widget, but... I'll wait for the next updates...
