DeskSMS is an application that syncs all your incoming messages on your android phone to your Gmail account. The sync function might not be impressive but the interesting part is that it lets you reply to those messages from your Gmail, Gtalk or the browser. This would not incur any extra cost except for the what has been decided by your service provider.
When you start the app for the first time, it will ask for your permission to use your Google Account.
Press OK on this message and the app will show you the Gmail account which you normally use for syncing purpose and for android market. Select the same account and proceed.
On the next page it will once again ask for access where you must allow it to proceed further.
Lastly the app will give you a small notification that all has been done and now you are ready to use the app.
As mentioned above the app lets you get notifications on Gmail, Gtalk and Extensions(Google Chrome and FireFox) which could be toggled from the app and also from a widget which you can place on the main screen.
How to use this App? After authenticating your account on DeskSMS, whenever a new will come and if the Wifi is on, the app will immediately Sync it with your email. You would see all the SMSs in your inbox from where you can reply as you do normally for an email. In case when you wish to use Gtalk, you must notice the notification which you will get for each number which you must approve first before you ca reply via Gtalk. I know you must be confused about the Gtalk notification approval thing so please follow the image below.
Here you can see that I have received 37 invitations whom I can chat with and they all are directed from DeskSMS. So you will to tap yes and then only you can reply to the same via your Gtalk.

Conclusion: The app is nice and works well and definitely it will make replying to messages more convenient
