Bug Description

It would be nice if the app integrated with the me menu: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MeMenu

That way we could send SMSes right from the menu like how we can tweet, etc.

Is the Me menu really the right place for this? The other applications that let you send messages seem to do it from the Indicator applet. For example, Mail has "Compose New Message" in the Indicator applet.

I like the concept, though.

I'm going to be honest, this application is nearly useless without some sort of direct link when a text is received. I only use Gvoice for texting, and simply getting a notification is semi-useful but it would be really nice if clicking on the notification at least took me to my Gvoice page. That would probably be best, refer to GM-notifier for a good example of how to do this! Taking the time to build a separate chat program would be a waste (if anything, just integrate it into the chat system already installed). But until then, at least have it link to my gvoice account!
