SMS Mac is an application to quickly enter an SMS text message and send it over the Internet to any mobile number in the world. You don’t need a cell phone. Supports Unicode and long messages (sequential SMS) and Flash SMS (Europe only). Many more special SMS features are planned.
You can run SMS Mac in different ways: as a stand-alone application that interacts with Contacts, a Dashboard Widget or using AppleScripts.
SMS Mac integrates seamlessly with your Contacts (previously called Address Book). With the SMS Mac application installed, you simply open the Contact of your friend or family member and click the mobile phone number. You can also select a group of contacts and send an SMS to all members of the group.

- SMS Mac is a brilliant as I get no mobile signal at home, so at least this way I can easily send out texts.”, John, United Kingdom.
SMS Mac also supports AppleScript. The SMS Mac Script app allows you to send an SMS when a certain event occurs. For example, you can use it with iCal. You can configure iCal and SMS Mac to send yourself an SMS to remind you of an important meeting. On a Mac OS X server, you can use this to send an SMS alert to the system administrator when a certain situation occurs. Several sample scripts are included.
