There are several issues/areas for improvement with the handling of images within the Republic Anywhere application.
The default image save location should be “Pictures” not “Desktop”. Any subsequent image saved within the same session should remember the prior selection rather than the default.
The Messages app on Android allows you to save all the images in a message with a single action. The Republic Anywhere application on Windows requires you to save each image individually, which is quite annoying. Second, when you click on it to save it there is no indication which image you actually selected, though it does correctly save the one you clicked over.
Images should be stored with the file extension relating to the image type (presumably always JPG?) so you don’t need to enter the extension. The default image.jpg is inserted, but if you change the name you have to re-enter the .jpg extension. Use of the normal dialog boxes on windows would likely solve this.
