Sure, first off do you have a gTalk account? This app redirects all incomng messages to a server which then redirects it into the google account you specify. For me I have it set up to be routed into my gtalk account (i used that account because with synergy it integrates into your sms app, rather than responding via email. So make sure you have the option checked in the desksms app checked to gtalk in order to get the messages to be directed to the messenging app on the TP. Send yourself a test message (also in the options) to see if you have it set up correctly. A few things i did initially was to remember to list myself as available in the sms app on the TP (or they dont come through) and also you must be connected to wifi because it is essentially a push service.

1. It works, albeit a work around more so but it works, responses go out as if sent from your phone and the look no different than any other response.
Things that need refinement, limitations..
1. You have to accept the very first message from a contact on your TP. Only once not for every conversation, but just for the very first time you receive a text using the app from that contact, after that works as advertised.
2. Only the PH# is displayed on the contacts pane in the left column along with "@desksms" appended to it. The actual message will have the name displayed like a normal text message.
3. As of right now you can only respond to a message number that is being displayed, so if you erase a convo you can not initiate another text without it being in the convo list. (I have emailed the dev to see about exporting the list to gtalk as he already allows it to be exported to gmail)
Again its not the perfect pairing, but it is a pairing and does work pretty well! Let me know if you have any other troubles and I'll try to help further,
