I have an Android phone because I'm awesome. I would like to be more awesome though. I would like to be able to send and receive text messages (SMS/MMS/etc) from my desktop when I'm near it, mainly because it's faster and it means I don't have to fish around in my pocket every time it vibrates.
Samsung has an app called Kies Air which is basically a little web server you run on your phone and connect to via a desktop browser. Like most Samsung software I've had the displeasure of using, it's pap. Slow and unreliable. It also requires a certain amount of me pressing buttons on my phone to get working too, so less than ideal.
So I was wondering if there was a better solution out there for Ubuntu, ideally not requiring me to root the phone, that lets me manage, view and send messages.
