Messages Beta for Mountain Lion lets you start a conversation on one iOS device and continue it on another--most of the time.

One odd thing: On my daughter's iPhone, the new conversation we had showed up separately from existing conversations. I'm not entirely certain why. We had previously traded text messages and iMessages in a single conversation. After I installed and started using Messages Beta, the conversation I started on my Mac showed up in a separate thread on her iPhone.
