What's New in Version 2.6.4
Fix for iOS 8 resume issue
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.
This is a nicely usable app that restores, for texting, the ephemerality of a private spoken conversation. When we talk to each other, we do not ordinarily make a recording of everything everyone says that is seamlessly backed up to the cloud and available to all of our logged in devices. But that's how most text messaging works. Wickr is what should be normal, and I'm delighted that the app is easy enough to use that I can make myself widely accessible over it.
Been using for a while. Personally I liked the red layout and app icon better but there's nothing wrong with this updated version except I think the font is now Comic Sans which might not be for everybody. Onto the app itself:
Self deleting messages, nothing is stored, and everything's encrypted. Very good for privacy. I'd recommend it.
