QKSMS recently has been having issues sending and receiving messages, especially pictures. I reached out to the developer but he never responded. It's a simple messenger. It does not send or receive audio messages. It does not have the ability to send or receive some images. It definitely cannot send videos. Links to other apps or to news articles do not have previews. I liked it because it worked enough to do the minimum. Unfortunately, it needs updating.

I have no problems with this app. However, my wife only gets about 70% of the messages sent to her. It appears completely random. Sometimes she'll get them from specific people, other times she won't. Sometimes she'll get pictures, sometimes she won't. Posting the problem on the dev site hasn't resulted in any acknowledgement, let alone a fix. She isn't the only one with the problem. We're looking for a reliable texting solution.

UPDATE: Since my initial review, I've discovered that this app cannot send pictures, no matter what compression setting I choose. I'm on Verizon, so I doubt this is a carrier issue. Really disappointed, but I guess I can just use another app to do that. Really inconvenient though. Almost perfect. Does everything it's supposed to. I just wish you could customize the theme more, like changing the colors of the sent and received bubbles overall, like you can in other apps like Textra.
