What about to use Silence for SMS default app?
Pro and contras? User experiences, etc…
Thanks for your feedback.
Easy to Use
Key exchange message might be unsafe?
I use it as my default SMS/MMS app on both /e/ and my past Android phones. No issues at all, but I’ve never tried the encryption.
The app hasn’t been updated in a couple of years. Maybe it’s perfect already?
What’s the Problem with QKSMS+?
For me, Silence allows to backup the messages, e’s fork doesn’t. First with unofficial builds, now with GSI, I have to do a clean install for updating…
Use QKSMS from F-Droid (the app the /e/ has forked for its own Message app). Message backup works fine. Also, think about uninstalling the /e/ version (search the forum for “uninstall system apps”) - it really doesn’t add very much, and it lags behind the upstream in terms of features and bug fixes
