security, messaging privacy, maintaining privacy online

A pair of things happened recently regarding schmoose, the messaging app devoted to maintaining your security and keeping snoopers from reading your messages.

First and foremost, the app has now launched on Android. Schmoose (pronounced like “moose”) will help Android users maintain their digital privacy and gives users of Google’s OS access to the same secure messaging that Windows Phone users have been enjoying since last month.

Speaking of the Windows Phone version, the schmoose app also received an update as well. The latest version, carrying the version number 1.2.1, makes the following changes to the app:

  • fix image view after resume
  • fix sending of small images
  • fix live tile update
  • fix contact sync
  • PG-13 policy
  • various bug fixes

Now that it’s available on Android and going strong on Windows Phone, we’re waiting for word of availability for iOS users. So far, nothing has been confirmed.

Meanwhile, the app can be downloaded via the Windows Phone Store and Google Play. Android users, don’t forget to install the contact access app as well.
