Instead of a simple page on the site, the web interface is now a small popup window that you can minimize and use when you need it!

It has also been updated to match the design of the Chrome Extension and our mobile web app.

Feeling nostalgic? You can still use the old web interface by going to: http://www.cellsend.net/web_legacy/
