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.

    It really depends, like when i was single with the OG DROID i was doing upwards of 17k per month, i switched to the vibrant on TMO and that went down to about 7 to 8k per month( not single anymore) then switched to the G2 back upwards of 10k, then i switched to the sensation last month it was 9142, having a keyboard really helps lol, but sensation is a great phone and even tho im on TMO i still check the site daily

    I average a bit over 3000 messages a month.

      To clarify – I have a girlfriend that works 3rd shift in a hospital and has a lot of downtime without a computer in front of her. Being a night owl myself, we spend 4+ hours talking virtually every shift before I finally crash out. That alone eats up a chunk of that 100/day average.

    I just paíd $22.85 for an íPad 2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.78 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $625 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, Centb.çom
