Why we need to print out text messages?
As mentioned above, most people choose to print out text messages conversations for futher use. Maybe want to use it as special evidence, or maybe they just need to make a backup for important text messages in order to prevent the loss of important data. Well, certainly we can email our text messages from mobile phone to mail box and then print them out. But if we do like that, we will lose all the date and time information. To print out text messages from Android phone with all the SMS info like date, time, name, etc. perfectly kept, we'd better use professional third-party software.
What I want to introduce is the Coolmuster Android Assistant (for all Windows versions) or Coolmuster Android Assistant for Mac (OS X 10.10 or later), which can access the internal flash memory of the cell phone, extract the text messages and transfer them to computer instantly. You can choose to save these text messages as printable .xml or .txt files and print them out via a connected printer. It supports almost all Android brands so that you can use it to help you print text messages from LG, Motorola, Google Nexus, Sony and so on. In this article, we will set HTC phones as example to show you how to print out text messages from HTC mobile phone by using Coolmuster Android Assistant.
