Signal Is A Private Messenger With Material Design Elements

December 8, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

We message other people on a daily basis, some of us still use SMS to communicate with people, and some are relying on various messaging apps we can find in various app stores these days. Many of these messaging services are actually cross-platform, which makes the whole process far easier. Now, you have tons of such applications available in the Google Play Store, from Whatsapp, Viber and Skype, all the way to Facebook Messenger, ICQ and applications like Signal, which we’ll talk about today.

Now, ‘Signal Private Messenger’ is a messaging app which puts security first, as its name suggests. This messaging app actually uses an end to end encryption protocol which will provide privacy for every message you send, at least the developer claims that. This is also an open source application, and it sports a number of features you’ll find on other chatting services, like group messaging, for example. Other than the encryption part, this app actually functions like it should, it’s fast and reliable, while it also follows the material design guidelines in terms of the design. If you take a look at the screenshots below this article, you’ll get to see how this app looks like. The first thing I thought to myself when I saw this app’s design was ‘Google’s Messenger’, that’s just me though, there are quite a few apps available out there which look like this thanks to material design, which is a good thing if you dig the design, of course. You can also send media attachments via this application, such as images.

That is pretty much it. You can think of ‘Signal Private Messenger’ as a regular app with a layer of security on top, which is a good thing, right? You’ll need to get other people to use it though, as this app hasn’t been around for that long, but it’s definitely worth trying out.
