Ratings and Reviews
Better privacy and features than others
Update: I’m revising my rating from 5 stars to 4 stars. Wire team, please provide the option to register with only an email address from within the mobile app (instead of having to go to the website on a computer and find the email registration option). Also, please improve app launch time, similar to Whatsapp and Signal.
Wire has better privacy than virtually any other messaging app. EVERYTHING is end to end encrypted. Providing access to your contacts info is optional because usernames are used. You can register with an email address on their website or with your phone number in the app.
Wire has virtually every feature a messaging app can have including texting, calling, video calls, group chat, voice messaging, expiring messages, attachments, GIFs, and more. The interface is nice and clean with no ads whatsoever.
I still haven’t found another messaging app with the same combination of privacy and features. This one is a keeper.
Developer Response ,
thanks for the positive feedback!
Registering with an email address on mobile is something we have planned for the future.
We're constantly working on improving our app and hopefully soon the launch time will be faster.
Unusable with long conversations
This app worked well for about a month, but with long conversation history it began to lag. Within the last week or so, messages - especially multiple messages or ones sent as the same time as the receiver sends a message - will cause the app to slow significantly, delaying delivery of messages or not sending them at all. The keyboard will lag when typing or not show your input until about 15 seconds later, while completely freezing the screen. I’ve tried restarting my phone, force closing the app, force closing other apps, but nothing seems to work. Love the interface and capabilities of the app, but will be choosing something else until these issues are fixed.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for flagging. This is an issue we know about, and is in the queue for a fix.
All the best,
Good, but poor testing limits robustness
Sure works pretty well, and it’s platform comparability is quite broad, but the development process is very light on test. This leads to problems of various forms cropping up regularly, and other annoying quirks that do not go away. Periodically the developers change the push notifications system, and they may stop entirely for an update. Photos are never preloaded, and open up the chat does not always result in wire loading images that are on screen, requiring users to forcibly close/quit and relaunch wire to view them.
