Projects / QuickMSG


QuickMSG is a secure messaging app for Android and the Linux command line. Its goal is to provide a simple and easy to use chat application with contacts and groups, providing secure chatting with no reliance on any central servers. It offers a simple interface for text chat and sending other content such as images and videos. Chat messages are sent using PGP encrypted email. All a user needs is an email provider which offers IMAP retrieval and SMTP submission (such as Gmail).
