Contest: Win 1-Year Subscriptions to DeskSMS! (Updated: Winners Picked)

Update:  5 winners have been chosen – emails sent.  Thanks everyone!

Koush’s DeskSMS application has been out for almost a month now, growing into one of the more useful apps we have seen in quite some time.  The idea – send text messages from anywhere using Gmail, Google Talk, or (newly added) Chrome extension.  It has received enough updates, polish, and stability over the last few weeks to take it from being free to a subscription-based service.  Since Mr. Dutta is a big fan of DL and loves to give back to the Android community in general, he tossed us five (5) 1-year subscriptions to give away today!  Each valued at $4.99 per year.

So how can you win one?  By following a few simple steps:

1.  Follow both @droid_life and @clockworkmod on Twitter.
2.  In the comments, tell us how many texts you average each month.

That’s it!  We’ll choose winners in the morning at 9AM Pacific.

To try DeskSMS today for free for two weeks, grab it from the market.

    Why would you buy this app when there are free alternatives?? Desktop SMS for the tablet and phone, and then simply sync your text messages to your gmail account with any plethora of multiple applications.  And then from within google/gmail on the desk/laptop you can text anyone you want.  As long as there are free alternatives, no way would I pay for this app

    As a fire team leader, I have to text my Marines (4 of them) at least 8 times a day to pass word on mandatory formations and such.  I text my girlfriend at least 20 times a day.  I text friends and others at least 20 times in a day.  72 texts a day x 30 days a month = 2,160 texts a month… DAMN I’m glad I have unlimited texting.

    I sent exactly 751 text messages last month!  Now that I have a tablet, this app seems like it will be a lot more useful!

    seen the figures on big red’s website ~1100 a month. Not exactly proud of that number…

  • http://www.facebook.com/david.casady David R. Casady

    We have five lines between my wife, sons and I. We pay for all of the lines which have unlimited text. If you know anything about having teenagers, they’ll send a thousand text a month AND NOT A SINGLE ONE TO YOU!
