What's New in Version 2.5.5
Stability and Usability Improvements
I have tried to enter this review three times now. For some reason he keeps telling me that I need to pick another screen name but won't let me so I have to redo the review every single time. This is last time.
I have been using this app for 1.5 years. In general it is pretty good. However; every once in a while I will send a text or picture to the opposite party and the opposite party will not be notified, it usually happens when the opposite party does not log in for over a week. The text will disappear. I am not notified that the text is gone or the other party has not viewed it. This is not critical to me but to some it might be.
I also wish there was a way to save videos. I do realize there is not a way to screen shot a video but it would be a nice feature.
This app feels good. I use it for a number things. Like when I must send credit card info to or from my wife when we are apart. I work in the pacific and we live in the middle of Texas. Also, as the POA for my mother in a nursing home I can send sensitive things like social numbers, account numbers, medical information as needed to direct her care and be sure it is not compromised to third parties while it is on its way. Easy to use. Wish the address book was easier to use but still for the few people I send info to and get info from, it's ok.
SuperEasy & works well
Wicker has awesome undeniable street cred based on the people behind it. Super easy & quick to set up an account. You don't have to give up any personal info (username/pw, phone#, & email), which is great for so many reasons, plus it is a time-saver. When you are setting it up the first time, Wickr asks for access to your contacts. It is OK to say "No". But you DO want "Notifications".
The Wickr messaging service itself seems really good so far, I'm happy with it.
The sender of the message determines how long before the recipients copy of the message self destructs. Very James Bond.
Really great way to transmit a password or credit card number to someone without being lame about it. I'm getting my friends, family, and clients set up with Wickr, which is quick & easy.
I don't know how Wickr will make any money, but I hope it all works out.
