Their cross-platform app architecture/dev paradigm was well thought out, which means you'll get an extremely similar experience on both desktop and mobile. This also theoretically means less work and faster update cycles for the devs. I still haven't made full use of all that Keybase offers (for free, mind you), but it should be a no brainer to create an account on, no matter how technical you are. Don't be afraid of reading/learning; even experts do so to pick up new skills 🕴️🐺.

I'm on a Google Pixel 2 and the app will randomly kick me out to the login screen. Sometimes it's a couple times a day and other times it'll happen back to back to back a good 30 or 40 times in a 10-minute period. if there was a way to fix that then this would be a solid four. Until then it's a one-star because can't give it no stars.

It feels silly, but the app doesn't let me do the things I actually need to do, like decrypt a message from the clipboard or sign a message. The mobile site is just as bad. To use the (otherwise quite good) service, I need to sign in via my mobile browser and choose "show desktop version".
