Just installed “Republic Wireless Anywhere”. What a waste of time! As near as I can tell, the only thing it lets you do is view some (not all) SMS messages. You can’t delete them! Others have said that if messages are deleted on your phone, they can still show up on Anywhere! Messages only go back 30 days. This is insanity! Presumably, the SMS data comes from the same database that contains all your SMS messages. What difference if that database is updated by a phone or a computer? Why limit the timeline to 30 days? If I use my phone to perform the same functions, it uses the same bandwidth, same resources - so why issue crippleware for computer use?
I installed the application because I wanted to use the superior human factors interface of a real keyboard and monitor to review/delete SMS messages. But since the app only goes 30 days back, I’m time-limited by what I can review. No “delete” feature means the app is useless for managing SMS messages.
In all, I rate this app ZERO STARS. I consider it a half hour wasted on a piece of garbage that takes up space on my phone and on my computer while serving no useful function. Republic - what were you thinking?
