Has anyone gotten any messaging apps other than Android messenger to work with Republic? Every one I’ve tried has had issues sending attachments.
I use Textra. For most apps you just need to set the MMS setting to System.
Three alternatives I know work from experience: Alternate Text Messaging Apps for Samsung Galaxy S7s.
The best app is in the making: RW Anywhere
Signal private messenger. Encrypted texts!
If and only if the other side of the conversation is also using Signal also.
It can send and receive unencrypted too.
You’re quite correct. I simply thought since you referenced Signal’s encryption that it was worth noting both ends of the conversation need to be using Signal for its’ end-to-end encryption to be effective.
I like Signal, which I think you’ll see in the blog I referenced in my previous post to this thread: Alternate Text Messaging Apps for Samsung Galaxy S7s.
Several good texting apps out there, but I have settled on Textra and love it. Very feature rich but wrapped in an extremely smooth and unintimidating interface. Elegant in its simplicity…
