Ratings and Reviews
This is great when it works. Lately I’ve been having an issue ... Even though my iPhone is paired and my screen is left unlocked so my Dell laptop can send and receive messages, it tells me, “Unable to get notifications from your iPhone. Launch Dell Mobile Connect on your iPhone.” The problem is it IS launched on my phone, paired, my screen on my phone left on, etc. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app both on my laptop AND iPhone and I’m still having this issue. I truly do love this app but I don’t understand why I keep having this issue when I’m doing everything correctly, just as it says to do.
If someone could PLEASE help me I’d appreciate it so much!!
UPDATE: 2 days ago they recently put out a new update and fixed the issue I was having. I’m so happy!! I changed my rating from 2 stars to 5 since the issue has been resolved.
Works great, even on older machines
First off, I got this working just fine on an older XPS laptop so you can ignore those who would rather wine than find solutions. Second, this thing actually works with iMessage on a PC! Do you have any idea how hard it is to find something that does that well? Basically this is the only good option for that I am aware of. I look forward to seeing this feature refined, and this only reinforces how pleased I am with the brand. My only ask would be working in the background, but I'm still giving the thing five stars because the naysayers don't seem to knew what they are talking about, and have apparently assumed they can't use it without due diligence.
Dell has brought Windows closer to being on par with the vaunted Apple Mac OS/ iOS ecosystem. This is much better than the Chrome web effort and Microsoft's Your Phone Companion App. I certainly appreciate all that innovation but this effort from Dell outpaces them all by a fair margin. In fact, this App does more than Apple's iMessage. That suddenly looks dated and even parochial. The competition and effort is great for productivity and all consumers.
