Can you make a payment? Was one of the submit review questions. Technically, yes. During a text msg, one could paste their Skrill or PayPal link to the person they are texting. Drop a deposit into the acct. for example. Call quality depends on where your physical location is (out of town, in a basement, underground mall) and the service provider. One issue I have is group chat participants can see everyone else's phone number. Not very private and in a previous review I asked if this would be addressed. That was a year ago. Over all it's a great substitute for the default sms function via Android.
Would recommend. Only left 4 stars however as a couple times I have had messages delayed and show up all together about half hour late. This happened while at home with cell service and wifi. It is very easy to use and takes all the leg work of setting up a secure method to communicate with friends.
Previous 5 star but after update it no longer appears in app history so I have to go back and navigate through the launcher then select the conversation again every time the app looses focus. Incoming messages during typing also glitches the keyboard. Please revert to previous behaviour.
When connected to some wifi spots, communications with another user don't go through. On the public WiFi at work, if another user sends me a text, I won't get it until I'm off the wifi. Wish there was a way around this. Otherwise good app.
So far so good. A little confusing to some of the people I know who think "I'm not doing anything illegal...Why should I care about privacy?" I think Thee Evil One, Hillary Clinton wished she had this on her "Berry" for ProPaganDUH block
The encryption is seamless, the functionality is all there - and the one problem I had was quickly resolved. Looking forward to the return of encrypted backup creation, but an easy 5 stars even without it. I understand why encrypted SMS had to be dropped - at least, I think I do - but I think it's a great shame.
