    Quick update. I've been testing this with a couple of friends and it works great. You can send text, pics, and vid. In your Settings you specify how long the message lives - the recipient(s) then have X time (e.g. 2min) after receiving the message before it is automatically deleted...

    I'll second this assessment. It's a great thing when you want a little extra privacy in your conversations. Military grade encryption, coupled with the self destruct and data shredding that happens, makes for a secure little program. Been using it about 1.5 months.

    My thoughts also.
    They have keywords they target, so if everyone and I mean everyone were to use all of them all the time, it would swamp the system.

    I'm hoping that normal people start caring about privacy and start using more encryption in their communication. Hopefully, that will be Holden's legacy.
