HATE THE NEW UPDATES VERSION
The color change is horrible, but that’s the least of it. The fact that you have to delete all the messages you want manually is ridiculous. What’s the point of that. I thought it’s called “dust” because the messages dissapear as soon as they are read. On top of that there is many things that need to be fixed. I’m not getting half the the messages that I should be getting. This is like a completely different app. If this is how the app was when I first downloaded it I wouldn’t use it. PLEASE MAKE IT MORE LIKE IT WAS BEFORE!! I use this every day and it’s making it so much more difficult to use. All in all I hate the changes. So so disappointed!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for downloading the new version of the app and checking it out! We appreciate your feedback and hope you stick around to see more progress in upcoming releases. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for feature requests.
Mediocre messaging app with potential. Privacy is NOT guaranteed.
I'd say there's no reason to use this unless you want the free cryptocurrency which may rise in value if this app becomes popular. It lacks many of the features you'd come to expect, and it's buggy as hell.
Other open source apps also have the same privacy protections, but none of these "privacy" texting apps can stop someone from simply video recording the conversation. Names are not displayed on the chat screen, but they are displayed elsewhere. It's easy to get a camera and use that video as proof.
Privacy is only as good as the people in the conversation. If they want to release your secrets, no app can protect from that.
Buggy app, but it’s better than nothing
Personally, I don’t care about the app being buggy, as it’s really easy to use and it keeps my private messages private. I’m not a huge fan of the colour scheme and the lack of features isn’t super great but I prefer it over mainstream security apps which tend to get really bad press. I like the app because it allows me to chat with people I know personally in a private and secure manner. That’s all I need this app for, which is why I’m willing to ignore the downsides and keep using this, although I’d like to see some changes in the future in regards to the downsides.
