Does a app have to be put on the phones?

Yes, but it is useless...  every time you sign in, ATT sends an access code to your cell phone that has to be entered on the PC before you can access your text messages online.  If you have access to your cell phone, you'll just read texts on the phone and not need PC access....  If you left your phone at home, you are out of luck.  Worthless...

Use Android SMS manager. With it, you can directly send or reply messages on computer using your keyboards via a simple USB cable.

Hi, I am in South Africa at the moment and have taken out my AT&T SIM card. I don't have an international plan anyway, so I can't get texts. Is there a way to check what texts have been sent to my phone since I have been out of the US?

@Bianca_Irvine No. if you have postpaid service, you don’t need an international plan. Incoming texts are free. You only pay for sent texts. Just make sure you turn data roaming off if you check texts.
