Best secure messaging app for iOS
For encrypted phone calls and text messaging, Signal offers the best combination of usability and security. WhatsApp may match it for security, but because it's now owned by Facebook, there's no privacy.
Best group messaging app for iOS
Anything that you may want to do with groups, GroupMe has you covered. In addition to keeping you connected with multiple groups via text with videos and emoji packs (the latter can be in-app purchases), you can create events and track RSVPs.
Best all-in-one communication app on iOS
This free app supports every type of communication you can think of from text to video calls plus in-app purchases for stickers, money transfers and iCloud backups of your messages.
