I've just discovered a great and IM app. It's really nice, looks like WhatsApp or other "pro" IM clients/service. Difference is it's based on , just like . It's great, check it out! Especially if you're trying to get friends&family to switch from Facebook's WhatsApp or Messager to Matrix.
Source code:
It's also on Google Play.
Matrix "channel":

So far I had being using a fork of : miniVector. I will however try because it just looks great and **that is also important.**
The only negative so far is the 28mb app size. Compared to 18 for , 24 for and 25 for that's a quite little bit more for some people that have cheap phones with limited file size.

To be clear, there is no encryption support. Hopefully, this might be added soon.

It is great app - no question, but there's no encryption implemented right now...

@upgradetofreedom Yeah, that's a shame but Floss is always a WIP and sometimes slow process.

Very cool. I was going to install Riot again after having been gone for a long time, and I found four Matrix clients on f-droid:

- Riot, the one I used to use…
- RiotX, something new also from New Vector…
- miniVector, a trimmed-down fork of Riot…

and Pattle. Is Pattle a Riot fork or a reimplementation? Either way, it's what I'm trying out first.
All four are within 19-25 MiB size.

Conversations comes in at ~28 MiB these days, whereas Conversations Classic is ~10 MiB.

Snikket is ~16 MiB ... and still has a merge conflict marker in the description. 😀
Dunno what's been up with F-Droid, but I had issues getting this downloaded yesterday. Now I got it in seconds, time to try it out.
