whoops didn't want to be rude/disrespectful. I've solely been joking about his funny screenshots . My post shouldn't sound offending! It's always great to see new members over here, especially when they're sharing their work. I have great respect for programmers for their work.
So sorry for my interruption. Back to the topic please.

Did I say I was a MOD ?, Im just putting it out there, brother... So I highly suggest you get over yourself ,

BTW, just because I posted a XDA rule on this forum, it doesnt mean i'm a MOD, I'm just being friendly and making sure people understand what the rules are here on XDA. When people post a "Rude", "simpleminded" comment on the forum, some of them take it "sarcastically" or they're just being plain rude.

Well, I felt something like this guy on the picture when I was reading this thread:
getfunny.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Stop-please...jpg?cb=S0QOg0Etdl

OK. My answer on the single question in this topic ( sad but true ):
WOW how did your friends Elephant, Dog and hose get these phone numbers?
--testing
What is the first reaction of people when they see own photo in public place? Probably, "OMG! Why me?" or something similar.
So, yes, animals are my silent friends! I hope we are understand each other and nobody wants to be a rude. :;)

I would be grateful if you could write any feedback about this app.

Thank you in advance!

Why does the app need "full network access" permission?
Hi daddyload2,
Thank you for the question.
This application works fine without access to network. The "full network access" permission is needed for banner which is located on main screen. The purchase "remove banner" is unavailable because it was a bad idea. I'm going to implement paid app which is based on this free version.
You can enjoy this app without ads. The banned will not appear if network is disabled. :)

I didn't even write a feedback because I didn't force my friends donkey & ape to install it till now.
the first thing that irritates me is the alphabetic order of the konversation history. I have many contacts i only write once a month or less so it's a bit annoying to search those contacts that are using this app.
I should stop moaning, or I'll get banned for disrespecting devs ;P I believe this app has potential and is pretts nice if we keep in mind this is its first release.

edit: Oh and it's nice that you have to write down the encryption key every time you get into a conversation, that way nobody will ever take your phone to write silly messages to your ex, but I believe it's getting a bit hard to remember every key if you are writing with more than a couple persons..

Thanks for clarifying!
Agreed, two separate apps including the premium one w/o internet access is a little bit more trustworthy ;)

Hi Clayne,
At first, thank you a lot for your feedback.
1. The order of items can be changed via the settings. List may be sorted by alphabet and it may be sorted by date. Perhaps this option sounds unclear, ugly an incorrect in English ("Sort list of main screen by the date (and time) when the latest message was received" ). I'll try to find better name for this one. :)
2. I agree with you that searching of necessary items looks a bit unfriendly, especially in huge list. So, I'll improve this functionality.
3. Regarding the password (key), the main idea of this app is maximum safety of message text. I believe it's not safe when passwords are stored in the device. Nevertheless, I will try to implement possibility to store key for session ( probably some new option ).

Thank you very much for your help!
