Texting has become a universal tool in communication. However, there are noticeable limitations. It seems simple enough–you send a message to someone; then they receive, interpret, and can choose to respond or ignore. But texting could be greatly improved upon, made simpler, yet at the same time contain more features. We all wish texting had more capabilities.
One app that is aiming to improve the way we text is reTXT. It is the first fully end-to-end encrypted messaging app available in both the Apple Store and Google Play. This encryption provides uninterrupted protection of data between the sender and the receiver. Like iMessage, the data is not stored in a server farm and messages cannot be hacked.
reTXT offers a ton of features that most other messaging apps do not.
- Change sent messages – allows you to change a message you have already sent. The updated message appears on all devices with no trace of the original message.
- Delete sent messages – allows you to delete a message you have already sent. The deleted message is removed on all devices with no trace of the original message.
- Ask for clarification on received messages – Rather than writing back and asking for clarification, you can simply swipe and it will let the person on the other end know you’re not quite following.
- Leave and revisit group texts – You no longer need to be at the mercy of others while you text. Leave and re-enter group chats at the push of a button.
- Send images, video, audio, locations & contacts – Easy to use toolbar allows you to send images, video, locations, links, etc. without leaving the text conversation
- Multiple devices are synced for you in real-time – Real time updates, texts, media and clarification is at your fingertips with the speed and accuracy that reTXT delivers.
ReTXT uses patent-pending functions to provide guilt-free texting and peace of mind, knowing that your messages are secure and completely under your control. The app is currently in public beta and available in the App Store and on Google Play. It’s not completely free, but it’s close enough. The app comes with a free 60 day trial and then costs $0.99 per year after that.
