Looks interesting. I want to know more about who is doing this and how it will be monetized. I see in the Play Store it is listed as "in development" so no ratings yet. I am always highly suspicious of websites and apps that make it difficult or impossible to find information on where they are located and how to contact them directly. It appears they may be based in the Ukraine. Any ideas?

I agree.,..i know that in Germany everything can be "listened in" too...also email traffic...and that goes quit easy. I prefer NOT to use German based email providers or the likes...thats IMHO. IF you want to use such a service i would prefer companies based in Iceland,Norway,The Netherlands or in Denmark (avoid Sweden!!).

Thanks for clarifying their origin. Not sure I would trust the service with any important messaging yet, but might be fun to try out with a non-critical email address. Frankly, I think the world is suffering from too many messaging platforms, not too few, and it would be nice to use something that can communicate with almost everyone. On the other hand, good old SMS/MMS/RCS already does that.
