Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Briar reviews

Probably the most secure messaging app out of any available, great idea! Unfortunately it will not be a good replacement for more popular messaging apps anytime soon. There is no way to send a video. Pictures are possible, but only in a chat with one other person and they get massively compressed. Pretty crazy in 2022. I love the idea of my messages not being routed through a central server, but it's not ready to replace my messaging app of choice. I'll check back in a few years.

I would like to see a pop-up chat head. If I'm not looking at the screen I will miss the flash notification across the top. I have missed a reply for hours. I like adding the contact without using my phone number. I was using TextNow and Text free but the constant ads drove me crazy! I think this is a good app.

This is probably one of the best messaging apps ever. I didn't even know a messaging app ever existed without using data . I installed this app into two phones and turned off Wi-Fi off for both of them and only left Bluetooth on. The app worked perfectly and no delayed text messages. I never knew that text messaging apps existed without ever having to use data or a Wi-Fi connection. I'm glad this technology exists because this would be very good in an emergency situations. Love this technology.

Skred Messenger reviews

Great privacy & security app. most of needed features are there. Sending audio could be simpler. Icons beneath the compose bar could be redesigned to be included in the compose bar to make it cleaner and to save on real estate. Finally the option to know when your friends are online would be helpful. Thanks for making this amazing app.

This security messaging app is on the same level as WhatsApp or Telegram. There's glitch issues but they have a active development team so those things can be worked out. The latest update was done this month, in writing this review. As with many of the security messaging platforms, they all have bug issues, which is why, regardless what you use, report it to the developers to fix the problem. This way it helps everyone, both users and the companies.

- Generic Dude

I use it only for messages, it's great for that. Doesn't need a sim card. Both phones have to be connected to wifi to transfer messages, though. But it's good that they are not kept on someone's server and stay private.
