TERRIBLY BUGGY on Android the past few months to the point of unusable. While typing, text box will not reflect inputs, freeze, then dump everything that was typed, or miss letters / words dump some of the text input. Constantly freezing require hard reset. Please fix this problem! Gone on too long! Developers, fix update version! Great platform overall. Privacy not what I thought it was. All devices connected to Users can be Googled too easily.

We love KeyBase, but it crashes a lot in the Android client lately. Pretty much whenever the three dots indicator that someone is typing is active. I know you guys were acquired by Zoom, but are ya gonna fix that someday? The ecosystem and everything build is amazing. Especially the desktop apps. The Android app appears to be dying on the vine right now though.

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 🕴️🐺.
