Pie Message Brings iMessage to Android Devices! [Video]

Posted May 3, 2016 at 6:02pm by iClarified · 34396 views
Developer Eric Chee has just unveiled Pie Message, an open source project that brings iMessage to Android devices.

The project uses a Java Web Server and an OS X Client that run on your Mac. It monitor's the chat.db file used by the OS X Messages application for new messages, then relays those messages to an Android app.

Chee has released a video of the project in action and has posted the code on GitHub.

"This project is a super alpha prototype. I am releasing it because I need your help. :)"

Take a look at the video below and hit the link to visit its Github page!

personally i think the benefits of the iMessage app obviously are not using cellular text messaging (even though 98% of all cellular companies offer unlimited these days) but iMessage is good because it sends texts, pictures, and videos faster which is beneficial with this app but i think the typing icon and the read/delivered messages are another plus. Not that i care if people read my text but i know if they did recieve it or if their phone is not on or something like that. If this app eventually had identicle features as the iMessage app then it would work out. I dont think i would be able to use 2 separete messaging apps on one phone. Android users would hate that i'm sure but if they have a specific reason behind why they want iMessages then i guess it could be good. Either way great project.

How to install it?

Isn't this just a message relay and not actually iMessage? I mean if your OSX client goes offline for some reason it would stop working right?
