Tablet Talk is an app that attempts to bring together tablets and phones in one important regard: texting! For far too long, texting has been limited to just our phones. Tablet Talk, when running on both a phone and a tablet on the same local wifi network, lets the tablet send SMS messages to people through the phone’s messaging connection. This is a handy feature for Android tablet owners, as it means that they don’t have to switch devices in order to carry on a text conversation. Plus, fewer typos thanks to larger keyboards!
As well, it helps to bring Android on par with iOS’s iMessages in a sense. Yes, it’s a third-party app, but it also has the advantage of being able to communicate with actual mobile numbers, instead of those in a locked-in system. Sure, something like Google Voice is a simpler solution, but for those who want to keep texting from their actual mobile number, this could help out. Tablet Talk is available for US $2.99 from Google Play.
