Image SMS

Send very small photos with long text SMS and without MMS or internet

Image SMS uses long text SMS to send a very small picture (NOT MMS or Internet). It uses base64 technique (similar to a email attachment) to transfer data. It is a bare metal App and Open Source on github. If you want to enlarge the features, you have to do it by your own!

I love my privacy. Thus I love apps with only a couple of permissions. Image SMS needs only access on:

  • SMS (read and send)

  • Camera

Image SMS does not use access to:

  • Files

  • Contacts

  • Internet

This may be strange to you, because you need a phone number and there is no contact selection. .


Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
