Official Republic Anywhere Feature Request Thread

A post was split to a new topic: Anywhere notifications: Silence but vibrate

It would be very convenient if the past 30 days of text history were to be downloaded from RW’s server to a new device when activated. I realized this last week when I went through three phones over a few days (first phone died, second was a temporary activation, third was the permanent replacement) and my text history started fresh on phones 2 and 3. It’s tough to carry on a conversation on multiple devices if your phone (newly activated) doesn’t show any messages in the conversation that your computer has the past 30 days of saved.

On a similar topic as the custom color schemes, I would appreciate the ability to change the color of the notification light. The white notification light is used by another app (Slack for me, I believe), and I would like the ability to change it to a unique color not used by any other of my apps so I can tell when I have a text from just the light’s color.

Better “attachment” support would be great. As of now, I see my app only allows sending of images (and possibly videos) and voice, but Google’s default messenger also allows location sending. Ideally, I’d want it to be on-par with Textra’s attachment support, but it would be nice to at least match Google Messenger.

Make it available to use on the republic phone when there is a different (non republic) SIM card present. I am in Europe for a trip and stuck in a local sim card so that I have a phone and internet here. Unfortunately that means I can’t sue republic at all. I was hoping this could solve my problems, but when I install the app it just says that it can’t authenticate and that I should get on a connection, even though I have internet here (both WiFi and 4G, take your pick), just that the republic SIM is not inserted.

How about a Blacklist?

On Android, it would be nice to have Nougat 7.1 feature “app shortcuts” available through a long press on the app icon. See attached screenshots for examples from Google’s Messages and Phone app. Thanks for considering!

P.s. And maybe on the RW app too! Maybe a shortcut to go straight to the data usage page, or Republic help!

It would be great if Anywhere gave you the ability to choose to send MMS or SMS when multiple recipients are selected. Sometimes when sending a message to multiple people I don’t want replies coming back to the whole group but just to me, so the SMS option would be handy.

Another note on group messaging: it would be great to have the option to send MMS to a google contact group so that i don’t have to add lots of people individually when drafting a new group message. I occasionally text a few different groups of coworkers (5-15 people) and it’s a huge pain to type in each persons name.

Final note on group messaging. It would be nice to be able to add a person to a group message, if I’m drafting a text to 12 people and I forget to add one person before I start drafting the text of the message itself I have to start all over when I realize I need to add someone.

If Anywhere can already do this, let me know.
Carriage return, bold, italics, underline, word size.
I want to be more expressive in my texts without using emojis.

Notification on Computer of Incoming Call

I love Republic Anywhere. The only feature from other similar apps I’m missing is seeing a notification on my computer when my phone begins to ring that contains the name of the caller.

This would be extremely helpful while at work where I want to keep my phone silent.
