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

Signal Private Messenger reviews

It's one of the most recognizable secure messenger platform out there. Runs smoothly, without any real problems. It's probably doesn't have much in terms of problems due to it's simplicity. There is no video chat or voice chat so there's a lot to be desired if you want more. Telegram or Element, would be better for those seeking more then text communication.

Signal is a great high security messaging tool, everyone should use it. And it's gotten better over time. One small easy way for people to claw back some digital privacy. Capabilities have improved over time. NOTE: if you care about preserving your text history, be sure to read about how to back it up and also save that file to a device off your phone! {Looking at you Secret Service}

- Charlie Fellenbaum

Great app! Awesome to see privacy and security rolled into a single, non-profit messaging app, especially given messaging apps are mostly drop-in replacements for each other. One feature request: the ability to take photos in-app to add to messages (as most messaging apps allow for) rather than having to open up a camera app, take a photo separately, and then append the photo to a message in Signal. Also, the audio on phone calls is frequently quite bad and cuts out... Otherwise, great app!

Whatsapp reviews

Google drive backups can't be restored if you've been chatting a lot for years and get a new phone. Just hangs for hours then fails. The experience of getting a new phone is horrible. You lose your messages every time despite taking up Google Drive space. Local back ups? I can't tell what those files are good for either. Very upsetting. Even Signal allows you to back up to an encrypted file.

Dog water app. Frustrating UI. Cannot properly sync contacts with phone contact list. Cannot verify account via email--phone only, which is very inconvenient. Each picture must be downloaded to the phone, taking internal space. Cannot log in on multiple devices as advertised. Calling is unreliable on WiFi and data. But hey, this is Meta, not sure why I expected a quality product.

- Matt D

I give it 3 stars because, I really appreciate for this app, that allows us to communicate ever abroad. However, I couldn't get any pictures or anything else to get sent. There's a box indicating that I should do the setting I did the setting and still I couldn't send pictures, it kept showing me that little box about setting, I go to setting do all the things there and nothing happens.
