It is no revelation that I am always on the look out for good messaging apps. In the Apple Ecosystem there is iMessage, and that's basically it. Even though many other apps are available too few people that I come across ever investigate them. (Which is really a shame.) I am sure that it is because Apple restricts their users to iMessage not so much for E2EE capability but to send SMS messages
for those outside of the iMessage network. In other words standard antiquated text messaging.

I posted this on Twitter a few days ago, but I'm adding it here for reference as well. Unfortunately this is a very serious issue. Librarians advocate privacy, prideful in using the latest technologies, and yet our libraries are failing in one of the most fundamental core components of the Internet when it comes to encryption and security.
