Send SMS messages through iChat.

Overview

Note: iChat2Cell is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

iChat2Cell is a utility that will simplify sending SMS messages through iChat. With the current way iChat allows you to send SMS messages to cellular phones, you have to first bring up a new invitation window (because Address Book doesn't save cell numbers as buddies), then you have to enter the country code and "+" and then you can finally send the message. With iChat2Cell, we take care of all those steps with one simple application. This version will allow 5 free evaluation launches and then $9.95 will unlock the program for good! Version 1.1 integrates with the built-in Mac OS X address book for easier contact management!

What's new in iChat2Cell

Version 1.1:
  •  Now interfaces directly with the Mac OS X address book
  •  Faster program response after taking out the non-standard address book routine.

$5.95 for an app that lets you do something that you can already do for free? Sheesh...

Does it work with a non-US phone system?

It only works with the "+1" country code, since AOL won't let any other traffic through (yet) for other country codes.

WOW! A new version is already out and it imports your Address Book contacts, if you have them formatted correctly and all I can stay is WOW! I had a few questions of the programmer, got onto his IM and BLAM, instant gratification. It is always a pleasure to work with excellent programmers. For all of you MacWhiners who say you can do it another way, get it for free--get a life! This is a top-notch app.

You can do the same with just ichat except with some features. Just IM the phone number in ichat including '+1' in front and keeping the window open so when the person responds/replys to the message you get it instantly. Tried with AT&T and its super fast... I don't see why I would need iChat2Cell and worst even pay for it when the feature(s) are available with other IM clients including iChat.

I just made my donation and appreciate software like this. Sure you can do it other ways, but not as cleanly as this.

Yes, iChat can do this--as you say "kinda"--my problem is that you can't really add them like you add a buddy--it's very cumbersome to have to remember to type the "+1" and THEN the number in AFTER you bring up a completely different window to type it all into. I have a huge amount of cell numbers that I don't want to have to remember or look up everytime I want to send an SMS. Furthermore, I want to use iChat and not a 3rd party tool to chat.

adium and proteus allow you to do this for free. and on top of that, you get everything ichat offers but EVEN BETTER. adium is free and proteus charges a small fee. all you have to do to send an sms message is input the phone number into the "to" box and type out your message and hit send like any other message. couldnt be easier. if you've found ichat to be limiting, definitely give those a try, their options are endless.

It really *is* that complicated to spend a good part of our time designing, coding and distributing these applications; that's why we ask for donations and keep certain features locked otherwise. Again, we are not Adobe and we are not charging $700 for our programs; We feel it's *more* than fair to let YOU set the price of the application. If you don't want to donate, that's understandable. Because *we* are doing all the work, all *we* ask for is a mere donation to keep us in business. Thanks for understanding.

'With your donation to If Then Software, we will send a code to unlock the built-in address book which makes it even easier to keep track and send SMS messages to your favorite cellular users--all through iChat!" So it's not really free then.... So you should call it a trial, not have it in Macupdate as free.

It's not listed as free from what I can see on my screen. It will still work perfectly fine, only without the address book feature. Remember, donations keep us in business and you get to name the price. Sounds pretty fair to me!
