High on privacy which other social apps lack
As mentioned on the heading, this app has a lot of privacy factors incorporated in the design which I personally find particularly attractive in comparison to other social networking apps. The only annoying thing is posting videos, you can only post videos recorded on the app and is only back camera. Not a big deal which can be easily fixed. Keep the privacy structure of the app! I love it.
The best social apps out there
Super app I use all the time. A few things could be improved like the group owner should be allowed to delete spam messaging advertising other groups or products. But in general great.
Last seen should be included
It should include last seen or something that makes sure your message has been delivered and read by another person. Most of the time people complain that they don't get the messages.
