About this app

Softros LAN Messenger is a secure instant messaging system that allows you to easily chat with colleagues within a local area network. And now, this powerful LAN chat program is available for smartphones and tablets running the Android operating system. By expanding to mobile devices, this Wi-Fi chat application can now be used by employees who are not always in front of their computers, allowing for even better connectivity than before!

This instant messaging program has a slick interface that is easy to use. Every person can quickly communicate with his or her colleagues and send individual or group messages. Users are also able to organize their contacts into groups based on their work team or a specific project team. Softros’ network LAN chat system is also one of the first enterprise corporate messaging systems to have a mobile app for employees whose jobs require them to frequently move about the office.

Users of the Softros LAN Messenger for Android can now keep in touch with their co-workers while on the go. Whether an employee is in a conference room, at the cafeteria, or at a co-worker’s desk, this Android-enabled network messaging tool will help keep workers in constant contact with their colleagues.

The only requirement for employees to use the Softros LAN Messenger for Android is that their mobile device is connected to the company’s network (directly or via VPN). Companies using this instant messaging system do not even need to install a server. By keeping the messaging service local, the Softros LAN Messenger is very secure. Security is further enhanced by the chat program’s AES-256 encryption.

By allowing workers to easily and securely communicate with one another, the Softros mobile IM application allows your business to operate more efficiently than ever.

Perfect (almost :)) I was looking for a dead simple peer to peer messaging app so that my husband and I could communicate on our tablets around our house and property. The SMS/MMS options were over the top, complicated and unreliable. This is perfect. Only 2 small issues - it throws a wobbly if your tablet is in landscape. Got to stay in portrait. Also, great that you can send a file, but you can't type a message AND send a file. Got to be on their own. Otherwise, I love it.

There's no preview when trying to send a file. So if you don't know the 20 digit code your image is named you have no idea what you're sending

When we can expect image preview before sending? Also is it possible to user share same ID on multiple devices? Else is perfect, easy and functional.
