Beeper is a new application that seeks to solve the problem of having too many message inboxes.
That means that when configured correctly, Locator send messages from Slack, iMessage, texts, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Discord and eight other applications.
Through Beeper, you can get iMessage effectively on Windows computer or Android phone if you are willing to use one of the two solutions. The easiest method only works if the user also has a Mac that agrees to leave on 24/7 to send their alarm messages.
The other method involves Beeper sending you a jailbroken iPhone which I also assume needs to be left on at all times to forward your messages to the app. While this is a pretty cool solution to getting into Apple’s walled garden that is iMessage, I hesitate to believe that the company won’t block it at some point in the future.
Yes! That is EXACTLY what we are doing. I have 50 iPhone 4s sitting here on my desk.

That said, if you use multiple messaging apps and need one place to sort them all, Beeper seems like the best option right now. It even allows users to reply to all of their chats and categorize them, which sounds very useful.
The main problem with Beeper is that it costs $ 10 per month.
It is also interesting that the Canadian Eric Migicovsky, best known for founding the smartwatch company Pebble, is listed as the first member of the app team.
