LiteWire

"I'm so sorry, I didn't mean what I texted when I was hungry."

We know you didn't mean it, and we want to spare you that difficult conversation by letting you take back what you said. We can't help you if you said it in real life, but we can certainly help you unsend those messages. Even better, why don't you draw on the app canvas to show your love a heartfelt apology, because a crappily-drawn smartphone doodle is worth a thousand words. Introducing LiteWire!

Sigh...so another chat app, you're thinking, like Signal, WhatsApp, Telegram, etc. We don't even have computer science degrees, didn't graduate from top ten colleges, and didn't win anything other than participation awards in school. We're not going to pretend like we were the first to implement the ability to delete messages and pictures from all sides or detect screenshots either, even though we were (just saying). But we can promise you a list of things that no one else can:

★ Deleting messages, including images and videos, will delete on the devices of all participants.
★ Secure content will be protected against screenshots and include watermarks in case someone tries to photograph it.
★ We will never harvest or sell your identifying information, your contacts, or your messaging content, because we don't have it.
★ This app will remain free with no ads and no begging for money (but we won't object to you throwing donations at us).
★ We will share our code with legitimate security researchers so they can vouch for our security and privacy promise.
★ We are dedicated to listening to you. Our lead developer is a man in his 30's who lives by himself with his two rabbits. Trust us, he has nothing better to do than improve this app.

We are just a group of friends with a vision of a fun chat app that we originally made for ourselves and used for years, but that we now want to share with the world. Security and privacy first of course, but next most importantly, fun and simplicity. If you need a safe space to hang out and send fun drawings, we have what you need.

***** The TLDR List of Features *****
- This app uses double ratchet elliptic curve encryption so each message is encrypted with a different key. This means even if one message is compromised, no past message and no future message can be compromised.
- Users' encrypted data is only stored on the server until the data is fetched, or a week has passed.
- The only thing you need is a username and a unique chatroom name you agree upon with your friends, so that you can find each other.
- When sending content, there are three options:
Secure: media will be encrypted on the user's device and they will not be able to copy or save it anywhere else.
Normal: media will be stored unencrypted and can be shared
OTR: the same as secure, but will disappear once the user's app restarts.
- Any screenshot attempts will be blocked on Android and reported from iPhones, and on iPhones secure content will be deleted upon screenshot detection.
- Long click on any message to see the delete options. Deleting your own messages will also delete on everyone else's device.
- Long click on an image to draw on it. Give that annoying friend a fedora. You can also import images from your device to draw on.
- Deleting a chat will delete all text and secure images. Images sent with normal security will remain on users' devices.
- If you don't want to see someone again, log out and remove the chatroom you are in with them, then log back in and delete their username.
- Have fun
