Description

twinme messenger protects your identity & intimacy: no information to identify you and your contacts; relationships under your full control are private, non-transferable.

twinme is a free secure instant messaging and High-Definition voice/video call application, protecting your privacy and giving you full control over each of your relationships and contents.

WHY USE TWINME:

. PRIVACY BY DESIGN: twinme doesn’t ask, store, or use any of your personal data. You do not need to subscribe and provide any personal information to use twinme.
twinme is about the only messaging app that does not use your phone number (no email address or social network ID either), and that does not snoop into your address book to suck your contacts’ phone number and other private information.

. PERSONALIZED CONTACTS: you can choose what you disclose about yourself to each of your twinme contact individually: your name, your image, which you can change at any time. You control how each of your contacts can reach you (or not). Since your contact information is personal to each of your contacts, it cannot be transferred to nor used by anyone else. You are in full control, whether you interact with a close friend or a complete stranger.

. PERSONALIZED CALLS: twinme video calls allow your contact to see you in live video BEFORE accepting the call. You can thus create a live emotional preview of your call by simply long pressing the video call button.

. PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS: all conversations happen in peer-to-peer with no relay server storing contents in-between devices. Data exchanged always stay within devices. Messages and voice/video calls are end-to-end encrypted . You clear all messages of a conversation on both ends simultaneously in one tap.

. FAST MESSAGING AND HIGH DEFINITION VOICE/VIDEO CALLS: twinme peer-to-peer message transfers are instantaneous when both ends have an active data connection.
twinme voice and video calls leverage the latest state-of-the-art real-time multimedia protocols and codecs that adapt to device configurations and changing network conditions to provide the highest quality voice and video definition achievable on the market today.

. FREE WITH NO ADVERTISING: since twinme does not access any of yours or your contacts personal information, it cannot be used for commercial purposes. Unlike most other messaging apps, you are not a product.

. INTERACT ONLINE LIKE IN REAL LIFE: you are free to decide with whom, when and how you interact.
Have one of your profiles’ invitation twincodes (QR-Code) scanned by a friend next to you or someone you just met, or send it by text, email or any other means to a family away, or post it to your website or tweet it to your followers: you decide.
If you don’t want to continue a relationship any further just remove it from your twinme contact list, and he/she cannot reach you anymore: no unsolicited call, no harassment, no spam are possible with twinme.

. IDEAL FOR KIDS: twinme helps you turn any tablet into a safe communication device for children. Without a phone number, your kid cannot discover or be discovered on line by unknown people. The only contacts allowed are those met in person (family and friends) that can flash the kid profile twincode (QR-code) with their device. Parents feel comfortable and kids can enjoy their first grownup social app safely.

. UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY: twinme extends the WebRTC open source technology (the new standard for secure real-time peer-to-peer multimedia exchanges on the web) with its unique twincode relationships model to provide the most disruptive communications services on the market today.

twinme uses your device Internet connection (WiFi or 3G/4G/LTE as available). Data charges may therefore apply. Check your carrier for details.

PERMISSIONS:
. “Camera” & “Microphone” to take pictures, make voice/video calls
. "Photos" for profiles and to send/receive photos in messages
. "Notifications" to be notified of calls and messages
. "Background App Refresh" to receive calls and messages while app sleeps in the background
. "Mobile Data" to be able to make and receive calls and exchange messages

Great but my messages aren’t sending

I was texting my friend but my messages aren’t sending or it takes about a week please try to fix this

Developer Response ,

These issues may result from the latest iOS and Android OS versions, which tend to put applications into deep sleep so they may not receive notifications and exchange messages in the background.
We are still working on this. So make sure you install the latest twinme updates to benefit from the latest improvements.

You may also "zap" the application to refresh its state when facing potential connection problems, and check that it connects to its signaling servers.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for your support.

Privacy?

Privacy privacy blah blah part 2 of your privacy policy says you take our location. How is that private? I don’t go around telling strangers where I live or where I go. After testing this app it gets your location fine location and location through your network.

2 stars because you were honest about it and mention it on your privacy policy. But it’s creepy that you guys need my location. Don’t need another app spying on me.

Your idea is great but the crowd you are going after wants privacy and I personally would not mind paying for your app if it was truly private. Get the location thing off! Then it’s 5 stars. Other than that you guys did an awesome job. This a fine app. Keep up the good work.

Developer Response ,

There must be some misunderstanding in the reading or our privacy policy, as we do "not" take "your" location. The account you use to communicate with contacts does not contain any personal information about "you" whatsoever: you can check in the permissions asked. It is not even available as a "User-(ID", since twinme operates only on relations, not on people.
For statistical purposes only, we collect collective information (not individualized) about things like "how many calls from that country or that city, based on IP addresses used to make calls." This is what the privacy policy refers to.
As you point out, taking "your" location would be quite creepy and opposite to the whole privacy protection purpose of developing this app. We do not know who you are (contrary to others that take your phone number, email address, etc.).
Thank you for your understanding.

New update

I love the new update a just don’t like how every minute I get a conversation synchronized notification

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately the new iOS 13 notification policy requires applications to make them visible to users, so you know the app is working in the background. We are trying our best, but we do not have much choice at this point.
Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your support.
