Messengers for smartphone

On this page there are applications that allow you to make and receive calls from smartphones free .... that is, via the Internet (which is not free :)).
Nevertheless, someone uses unlimited Internet, or uses the Internet via Wi-Fi. I work on the Internet, because I almost always have Wi-Fi.

In other cases, it is unprofitable. By the way, traffic can go even in standby mode.

Messenger from Facebook, rather than on Facebook, though, and put in a separate application.
First looked that the reason for the launch of the messenger as a separate app due to too heavy weight application Facebook, which is bad for the phone (it's not a full-fledged computer, the application needs to be compact).

In fact, the reason is somewhat different. If social networks were mostly ribbon, becomes today the main chat connection with someone, a group of ...
And after the advent of bots, the popularity of the instant messengers has grown. Because there was a separate site app. But it is still linked to Facebook and all contacts in there.

And often times just need the link and the link is maximally free and fast, why not at least make a separate icon to go to Facebook on the tape to find out how to get into messenger. Just click another icon appeared and we were there.

It's not news that Facebook, Google, and Microsoft are making heavy programs and applications.
We see it when we begin to install programs we need.
Especially this is sensitive on smartphones and in places with slow and expensive mobile Internet.
That's why Facebook created a lite version of its messenger (for some reason not for all countries).

Protected messenger from BitTorrent.
Supports text correspondence and phone calls.

Come up with a nickname and all.
Email and phone number are not required.
Email and mobile phone needs only to your friends faster than you found it.
But you can just share with your friends your key and you will be added to them, and they to you.

How does it work?

  1. without the servers, according to the scheme peer-2-peer (directly from user to user). (From person to person), keep in mind the principle of Torrent?
  2. If the connection is broken with someone, failure and mistakes will not be, as a link will appear again, the message will runaway. The same principle of Torrent client.
  3. Encryption takes place on the basis of end-to-end, encryption keys are stored only on your phone.
  4. have the ability to delete messages after reading.
Protecting greatly complicates the work of the program, because the application is very gluttonous to traffic and to the battery.
So called - look at the charge, maybe it's time to recharge.
A call for better WiFi.
