I bought myself a Galaxy S3 and with it came a free Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (wifi only)
I was wondering if there was any way I can get a notification on my tab when my phone gets an sms?
The reason I ask is because I like to leave my phone
charging on my laptop in the study while I use my tab in the lounge, but id like to know if I get an sms too.
Any thoughts?

Thanks bud. So with this I can send and receive sms through my phone, on my tab?
And it's just like sending a txt from my phone?
And the other person doesn't need to have the app installed?

You just have to install the app on your tab, and the other one on your phone. It sends the sms to your phone and it sends it normally.

Works like a treat on my S3. Thanks alot!

Now, is there any way to sync apps on both devices quick and easily?

Say if I was to download facebooks app on my phone, could I make it also go to my tab at the same time?
