A few questions about the Relay companion app…
I gather that Relay devices purchased together will come pre-configured to communicate amongst themselves, and the app will only be necessary to configure WiFi (and perhaps talk groups or sub-groups?). Will there be an alternative way to do that, perhaps with a laptop and web browser, that won’t require a smart phone?
Will the phone app run on any android device (subject to OS version limitations, perhaps) or will it be artificially restricted to phones only (no tablets)?
Will the app be usable regardless of the device’s cellular carrier? While I’m sure the earliest adopters will be current Republic subscribers, I can imagine many people who’d be interested in Relay but are also happy with their existing phone and carrier and wouldn’t want to have to switch phone providers just to be able to add Relay to their communication options.
If the companion app will be carrier and device agnostic, will it be limited only to Android? Or are there plans for an IOS version? Not that I care personally, nor do I expect Apple users to be a big potential market, but just because if I don’t ask, someone else surely will anyway
