Version 2.7.1 of Our Mobile Web App is Out!

CellSend WebApp

We just released version 2.7.1 of our mobile web app.

This version adds better transition between views for all items and starred items.

With this update, switching views, by tapping the star icon in the top left corner of the app, is done much faster and it also fixed a problem where sometimes the app would get “stuck” switching views.

If you added CellSend to your phone’s homescreen, you may need to open and close the app at least once to see the updated version (note the version number listed just above your personal verification code).

CellSend 2.0 is Out!

Today we are proud to introduce to you the brand new version of CellSend!

In this version we completely redesigned the mobile web app with a fresh new look and improved capabilities.

The first thing you will notice is that you no longer have “next” or “back” arrows to move between the texts you sent.
Instead you will see a stream of chat-like message bubbles representing all the texts you send via CellSend.

We also added WhatsApp and Waze integration so you can quickly send a piece of text to either one of these apps.

Here is the list of all the changes in this version:

  1. Brand new look
  2. View a stream of all your CellSend texts to and from your computer
  3. Improved performance
  4. Ability to send your text to WhatsApp (must have the latest version of WhatsApp installed)
  5. Ability to open your text in Waze (Must have Waze installed)
  6. New logo
  7. Quickly send a text to your other devices using the text box at the bottom of the app.

If you are running iOS 7, please make sure you follow the instructions we issued a few days ago regarding problems with CellSend functionality on iOS 7 devices.

And lastly, here is our latest video about CellSend 2.0 – we hope you enjoy it!
