Tact is a simple chat app for iOS, iPadOS and macOS. It uses your iCloud account, and stores all chats and messages in iCloud. Tact is great for couples, families, and groups of friends who already know each other in real life.
NO SIGNUP, ONLY NAME AND PICTURE
You don’t create an account or pick a password for Tact: you are already signed in with your iCloud account. Tact only asks you to set a name, and optionally a picture.
FRESH, ELEGANT, NATIVE
Tact has a clean, elegant look, free of clutter and focusing on the essentials. It is small and fast, built natively for Apple platforms with modern design and technology.
NO ONE CAN FIND YOU
Tact is not a social network. There is no directory. You cannot search, browse, or contact people you don’t know. To let others connect with you, you share your personal invitation link to as many or as few people as you like.
Tact does not ask for your e-mail, phone number, contact book or location access, or any other private information or device access.
STORED ON ICLOUD
Your chats and messages live in iCloud. Tact does not operate our own cloud, and we do not have access to your chats or messages. Tact requires iCloud Drive to be enabled on your device.
HIGH QUALITY MEDIA
Tact does not downsample your videos or turn your beautiful pictures into blurry thumbnails. It preserves the native quality of everything that you share. Storage in Tact is limited only by the capacity of your device and your iCloud plan.
LITTLE QUIRKS AND DELIGHTS
Beyond the basics, Tact adds subtle delight and character to your chats. From rich web previews, to likes, emote messages and group icons, you have many ways to express yourself and interact with other people.
The Tact business is sustainable and does not require large team or ongoing expenses. We don’t have external investment or pressure for quick growth and returns. We build Tact for and with the people that pay for it.
THREE CHATS FREE
Tact is free to use with up to three chats. If you find Tact useful and need more chats, we ask that you purchase our monthly or yearly subscription.
Your use of Tact is governed by Apple Licensed Application End User License Agreement: https://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/dev/stdeula/
