QUICKIE, a Messaging App to Keep Your Privacy Private

If you are a smartphone user, then you know that there are numerous messaging apps to choose from. App Store and Google Play are filled with this kind of apps, some more focused on the content, while others more focused on privacy and security.

What if there was an app that merged the best from those two worlds? An app that made communication effective, fun and private, all at once? Actually there is no need to imagine it – meet QUICKIE.

I have previously reviewed Quickie, an app with the same name but working a bit differently. However, other than the name, they have another thing in common: the focus on privacy. While QUICKIE works like every other app in terms of sending content, that content has an expiration period, after which it is eliminated for good.

QUICKIE allows users to communicate using different means, such as short texts, GIFs recorded with their smartphone, audio, and drawings. And all this is sent through the app in a flash, without any hassle whatsoever.

In its free version, each user can only add eight contacts to QUICKIE. It seems a small number but, if you think about it, that can actually be enough for you to communicate with the people closest to you. The premium plan, priced at $1 per year, allows users to add more contacts, as well as other features.

In a time where users are on the lookout for apps that respect their privacy, and teens want apps that forget what they write and receive, QUICKIE can very well turn out to be a solid competitor to Snapchat, one of the most used messaging apps in the market, and similar apps.

QUICKIE is available for iOS and Android, with versions for Apple Watch and Android Wear on the works.
