The new Republic app update (version 22.214.171.1245) is available in the Google Play store! With it, comes the standard bug fixes and MMS download support for Google Hangouts. But perhaps the bigger announcement is Email to SMS messaging!
Another idea out of our Think Tank and voted up by our members, Email to SMS is a great way to get quick alerts to your phone. With Email to SMS you can receive texts from Paypal, banks, E-mail, and other Internet sources. It’s great for college students who need to sign up for university campus alert systems, parents who want school announcements sent to their phones, or anyone wanting to sign up for weather and emergency response notices for your hometown.
To turn the Email to SMS feature on, follow these simple instructions within the Republic app.
It’s just one more way we’re helping you stay better connected! Enjoy! 🙂
