What's New in Version 2.6.1
This app provides its users with the most secure and private messaging on the planet. I trust communication through wickr more than I trust having face to face conversations with a cell phone in my pocket. Does me well. The only downfall is when the updates come in, you sometimes lost contacts and need to make a new account. I have lost contacts but have never needed to make a new account. In retrospect, I almost feel more secure that this information is lost during the updates. Although losing contacts is a hassle, it still does what no other app In the world is capable of, which is 100% secure messaging. Anyone having doubts in regards to the security this app provides, I would insist you read up on the mechanics of the app, and the goal of the creators on Wikipedia.
I used this app for several weeks. I don't like how you have to hold your finger on the picture to view it. They did this to reduce the ability to make a screen capture. I just don't care for that design. The good news is that the app works flawlessly on my phone. Message delivery appears to be reliable. I heard that a windows app is being developed. Looking forward to that.
Update: Wickr today (Dec. 4) launched a desktop client for Windows, Mac and Linux. Users' messages will now also sync across all devices on which a single user's Wickr applications are installed, allowing people to switch between desktop and mobile.
Think Twice About Using For Criminal Acts
I am rating two stars because this ap is advertised as ultra secure and it is but only in favor of law enforcement looking to build a case against someone. The website for this company has a FAQ about law enforcement and clearly state it will cooperate fully with warrants or other law enforcement demands and as they should.
Do not think for a minute that using this app will protect you from having your communications or even forensic evidence "erased" from your phone used against you in a court of law. I did not commit any crimes with this app but i object to the false impression it gives of being a barrier between your phone and LE. If you want to use the app for legit purposes it may in fact provide the security it claims to have and you can feel confident because you have nothing to hide.
