Ratings and Reviews
Does just what it says.
You have to install it on your phone, on iTunes on your PC, and download their application for the PC. Once you do this, it works exactly as they said it would. I searched for a while trying to find something to transfer my SMS files ok my phone to my PC and all the apps were $30 but this one did it for $5.
Also, I had difficulty with it recognizing that I purchased the app at first. I emailed the support staff and they responded in 53 minutes with a solution that helped me get past my problem.
I would definitely recommend this app if you are looking for a cheap way to get you texts from you phone to your computer. This won't be the prettiest looking app you work with and it may take a little extra work to set up by it gets the job done.
Best download text app
Love this app. I have been using it for the past 4 years. Paid $4.99 once. Can't believe how cheap it is for what you are getting! The app loads easily onto your desktop and then works perfectly. Very user friendly. No problems, ever. The only thing it doesn't do is download pictures that were sent via text. I have seen some text apps that download pictures in color. It does download emojis though. Before you download to desktop, you can select what text messages you want and the dates. Downloads into Excel, which makes it even easier to sort info later. Really awesome app, I recommend it for sure.
My wife passed away recently and I was very nervous that I would not be able to save all her text messages...expecially to me. This software was easy to use and worked exactly as expected and I was able to download all the text messages from her iPhone and iPad. Anyone wanting to extract all text messages from your iPhone...well I would HIGHLY recommend this app. Just a Note: I was having problems getting the export button to work but I sent an email to the support team and got an answer in less than 24 hrs. I used the desktop app on a Windows 10 PC and it worked perfectly.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
