Privacy is key It's no ones business what I text other people about. I like this app because I can chat with family and friends and don't have to worry about what I say and it showing up on some feed about the crazy things people say, which they are only saying because they incorrectly assume texting is private. Well worth the money.
Alright now. Updated versions work as described.
Nice update guys. Restarted phone, chat history gone. I backup my stuff but this is still one of the worst possible bugs to push to a live version. Also your restore from backup is ATROCIOUS! Hasn't really gotten worse but after using it for more than a year there were little to no improvements. The UI needs updates among other things. But development has been close to stagnant for a good amount of this softwares lifetime. So I don't see it going anywhere. While the other messengers make improvements this one falls behind. The one thing it still has going for it is its server location, which is actually a big plus.
Great App Nice UI, cool features! - I'd love to see a backup of the IDs only (w/o messages) and the PC client, sharing my phones ID
Doesn't support Starred Contacts If you use Android's starred contacts features to filter notifications during specified times, meetings etc. then forget Threema and stick with a more rounded solution like Signal.
Very good messenger app
