What's New in Version 2.6.4
Fix for iOS 8 resume issue
My goto for messaging
This app is a godsend. I love the simplicity. One improvement... please fix the TouchID implementation - this often resets in a most inconsistent manner and requires reentry of the password to get it going again. For instance of while waiting for the authentication prompt I accidentally touch the screen or sometimes resets and other times if I switch apps briefly when I return it has reset and instead of again offering the TouchID prompt it expects the actual password again.
It would be also be great if you would open source this - more eyes on = ultimately better security not worse.
The Future of Messaging
This app is very comparable to how Apple removed the headphone jack. It is a pioneer, unafraid to change the norm and challenge what Facebook is doing. This app has no interest in your data because it's business model is not built on it. (While Facebook's revenue model is basically selling your data)
I'm really thankful that the dev's are so honest and straightforward with everything. A feature I'd love to see is some kind of screenshot blocker (or any smart way of bypassing screenshots- maybe instant blackout of screen?). Also, a mechanism that would make this app much more easily adoptable is the feature of having a temporary link generator that you can use to generate friend add links. Basically a link that you can share with your friends so they can easily add you. But it has to be temporary so that it cannot be abused or used to identify you.
Anyways, thanks again for this app it is truly the future of communication.
Great App, Needs a Few improvements
Excellent way to communicate. No more worries about your carrier or anyone else reading your text messages.
Not thrilled about the new color scheme, but that is minor.
There needs to be a way to reset your password. I understand the privacy, but there must be a secure way to do this. Maybe incorporating something like Google Authenticator as a method of identification. Also, sometimes after an upgrade, it does not allow you to log in, even with the correct password. You need to uninstall the app, and then re-install it.
