I know it’s a little difficult to make work, but I think it would be really awesome if bite made some type of app for the iPad that downloads texts from bite on your iPhone and allows you to reply and what not from the iPad.

Perhaps it could be a similar service to credits over biteSMS. The iPhone MS plugin uploads to bite servers and then a similar plugin downloads them on the iPad. This would keep you from having to specify what IP address to download texts from and what not.

I’d definitely be willing to pay for this, as I frequently find myself forgetting to respond to texts on my iPhone because im too busy reading something on my iPad.

This same concept could even work on OSX or Windows.

This may be helpful (although I’m a bit confused whether its for the iPhone or iPad) : https://twitter.com/MuscleNerd/status/13248775810

The intent is that if you use a normal voice / sms / data SIM in your iPad you’ll soon be able to install biteSMS and use it.

...you’re saying well have to swap the sim between the phone and the iPad?

Edit by Martin, if you simply want to send cheap SMS messages, you can use munchSMS from the App Store, you can do that already today. If you want a fully featured SMS client that can send and receive SMS messages, you’ll need 2 things a) a SIM that allows you to send and receive SMS messages and b) biteSMS.

Martin, many of us will have Wi-Fi iPads. Won’t you make something for them ?

 
Avatar Martin Administrator 7,696 post(s)

You can already use munchSMS on a WiFi iPad. It’s only for sending though.

@ram you can’t recieve with the bite network remember that

That’s why it would be ideal to have your iPad use your iPhone’s SIM through the cloud, as I said earlier.

This would be very convenient. Could incoming messages on the iPhone be sent via bluetooth to bite on an ipad? If bite on ipad were connected to bite on iPhone? Just wondering.

This doesnt work on the ipad yet. But I was thinking the guy that wrote this app admits himself hes not good at coding. which is why the app is a little slow and clunky. But it proves it can be done. I think martin and company could build the sms transmitting app into regular bite and then just create a “smscatcher” of short for the ipad instead of sending thru the web browser like in treason.

I think now would be a good time to develop the highly requested web interface for biteSMS that can be accessed from Mobile Safari as well as other browsers. :-)

Any words Martin?

Everybody, a similar system to this already exists: http://bit.ly/3DTU.

Something like this would, I imagine, put great load on the biteSMS servers, and probably push the cost of licensing up. I -1 this – but then I’m not a great fan of the iPad (until I get one!)

why would there have to be a load on the bitesms servers at all? the apps would talk to eachother very similarly to how the scrabble app uses the iphone for each player to hold the letters. I don’t know where the bite servers would even come into play.
