Great service but the app is in desperate need of an interface update to material design and the icon is not good looking at all. Not that this matters much but it would be easier to use and more polished if these things were changed. There's also issues with notifications, sometimes I get notifications and the messages don't actually show up in the interface for a few minutes and sometimes i get notifications when there are no new messages. Another issue is that it seems like the user is logged out after a certain time period without being warned and this seems to interrupt new message notifications occasionally. Support for seeing when your messages have been read would be a nice addition to the app.
Fix the interface and I'll use it The details of the service technology and privacy seem about as good as possible, but a secret messaging app that doesn't even have a dark theme? This is basic usability. I message at night and in bed, like the rest of the world, and I simply won't use it with the awful searing interface. Please set aside 1 day of dev time to correct this until a proper interface can be made. Also, I hope the audio recording that is sent is better quality than the preview (which is near unintelligible).
Update disaster Updated the app and now I'm locked out - it's saying the same password I have used for months is incorrect. Very inconvenient!!!!!
Encryption for the masses Apps like this is what the world needs right now. With intrusive companies/governments/hackers all trying to spy on you, encryption and security measures are something the public at large needs to be comfortable with. This app is a step in that direction.
Can be number one ! Hi I tried your app. It needs lots of improvements an has lots of bugs, but it seems to be well secure. I have a suggestion:"Simply look at Telegram, and try to bring the same options to wickr. There are many changes that you can apply. You can be the first messenger by combining options like all options that telegram has with your number one security level." I am Iranian an in Iran because of our government we need a secure and safe messenger like yours, but still appearance and other options are very important. Thanks
Update 9/9 - The team at Wickr was very responsive to my review. I emailed them details of the issues I was experiencing, and they worked to resolve the issue. They communicated with me and got the app working like it always has. Excellent experience with their support. (Previous Review prior to working with Wickr TS) With this most recent version released Aug 7th, message delivery and sending work at a snails pace. Sometimes notifications work, sometimes they don't. Sometimes you get a notification and have to refresh 2 or 3 times (at 15-30 seconds per refresh) to get the message to actually show up. Something went terribly wrong with this build. Galaxy S6 edge stock.
