/g/s thoughts on signal ?

It's great, secure, user-friendly free software. But it has one fatal flaw; it only functions on a phone with Google play services, you can't use it if you want your phone liberated and/or de-googled. Very unfortunate.
>>
Great but noone uses it
>>
dumb gapps dependency.

don't give me the crap that it needs for one function. it is enough that i can't even use the app after install because i don't have gapps in my phone.

One of the devs is a cutie

This. Also sound quality could be improved, as well as media upload size. But other than that, it's a great instant messaging application.

It shouldn't require you to have a phone number to register, fucking stupid.

Where is the diversity? They 4/6 are straight white males. I don't see a single trans person and there is only one (probably extremely privileged) marginalized race.

They are the cancer destroying the tech industry.

It's a good program for easy encryption. I got a few drug dealers to use it.

The hardest part to get to function is normies adopting it. It's useless if only you use it.

Pick one.

well if it's open source where's the botnet-free fork?
also, does it use play for something? it should work with the xposed spoofer

I'm well aware, but it's using its own invented crypto, which is always a huge red flag. I'm sure they got some smart math PhDs on the job, but as their cryptography isn't tested by time yet you shouldn't rely on any self invented crypto.

This is literally just Moxie's scare tactic.He don't want others to get away from his crypto.
>>
>>51580166
The only person who complained about the crypto is moxie and seeing how android fags always try compete each other out you can't seriously use this as an argument.Other than Moxie everyone else approves this crypto.
>>
>>51580206
Not a Moxie scare tactic. It's a general rule of thumb within the crypto world. Cryptography is a very tricky business with a lot of pitfalls. Some examples: https://cryptocoding.net/index.php/Coding_rules

I have it installed but I have only a single contact who also uses it.
My best friend (a CS major) refuses to even try out signal for a while because
>hurr everyone's on whatsapp and I'm not going to install an extra app just to communicate with you
>>
>>51580069
It 'needs' Google Cloud Messaging to basically push an order for you to fetch a message from Moxie's server.

Moxie clearly has a hardon for Google for some unknown reason - Telegram and Conversations can both hold a connection with minimal battery drain.

Oddly the forked WebSocket version murders battery.

don't you know kids are not allowed here.

So what are you still doing here
>>
>>51579073
true
there is no point in using it if the other party doesn't have it
>>
>>51580772
>Oddly the forked WebSocket version murders battery.
Probably because if you open a WebSocket your device won't sleep until it is closed.

Most likely they wanted to make a timely update system so you get messages promptly and decided it was easier to make use of Google's push service which is already present and managing other push events rather than creating another one which would just mean your device wakes up more often.

It is open source so maybe someone can write a replacement that won't murder battery life so they can move away from it.

SMSsecure on F-Droid
It's a fork off of back when Signal was called Textsecure and had encrypted SMS instead of encrypted MMS.
