I can see that F-Droid QKSMS is still at 3.7.6 (Git-23days ago), while, the author has now moved to 3.7.10, 3 days ago. Can it be kindly updated?
The last build log is pretty clear: https://f-droid.org/wiki/index.php?title=com.moez.QKSMS/lastbuild_2209&redirect=no
ERROR: Found unknown maven repo 'http://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots' at build.gradle
I guess this might fix it: https://github.com/moezbhatti/qksms/pull/1538
So, since the maven is using HTTP, instead of HTTPS, that is why. Gotcha. I find it difficult to understand few things at times.
It’s recent thing, enforcing HTTPS, so apps will stumble on it as they come and upstream will need to make this small fixup.
Netguard shows 3.7.10 attempting to phone home to google (1e100.net).
Yes and no, it might be just a “connectivity check” of sorts, what did you do before, got/sent a MMS?
It’s more frequent than MMS, seems to happen with any usage of the app.
I don’t see it connecting, then again I just installed it and send one SMS only.
@moezbhatti Care to chime in?
/LE: @jys Silence works fine and has encryption
Not actually that paranoid, only mention it because some people are “sensitive” about things like that. It may very well just be connectivity pings (letting users set a domain for this is a nice touch).
