I've just discovered #Pattle a great #android and #iOS IM app. It's really nice, looks like WhatsApp or other "pro" IM clients/service. Difference is it's #FLOSS #freesoftware based on #matrix, just like #Riot. 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.

It's also on Google Play.

So far I had being using a fork of Riot.im : miniVector. I will however try #Pattle because it just looks great and **that is also important.**
The only negative so far is the 28mb app size. Compared to 18 for #miniVector, 24 for #Riot and 25 for #RiotX 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.
