FoneLink gets SMS

FoneLink, a conduit between macs and mobile phones, will (starting in November) integrate a full-fledged SMS manager to send, receive, answer, forward and archive SMS messages on a Mac. The new feature will support multipart as well as group SMS, and messages can be stored in user-defined folders. There will also be a search field that allows users to find messages by name or by content. Other already-existent features in the tool include contact and calendar management, media and file transfer, iTunes playlist synchronization, ringtone creation up to backup and restore functions.

The FoneLink SMS feature is linked to the Address Book database. If the recepient is stored in the Address Book, it is sufficient to enter a part of the name and the contact will be added to list automatically. Incoming messages will display the Address Book picture of the contact, if available.

FoneLink requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 or higher and a compatible mobile phone. A demo version is available for download. The software is priced at 25 euros, or about $35.
