QKSMS Makes All Premium Features Free In Latest Release, Teases Major Upcoming Announcement

QKSMS, an SMS replacement app that boasts material design, customizable colors, and Android Wear support, has made all its paid features free. And no, that doesn't mean that the developer has just added some new features and made them pay-only instead. The app is simply 100% free from now on, according to its creator.

  • Respond from Android Wear
  • 150+ additional color combinations
  • Automatic night mode
  • Per-contact notification settings
