Mobile messaging started as a copycat of ‘Desktop messaging’ apps like MSN or AIM, but in a smaller version. That was rad, you could reach your contacts from anywhere. A desktop-friendly interface scaled to fit smaller screens. We’ve been using these interfaces for a long time now and nothing has changed. My guess is, changing something that works is tricky, change is tough to come by.

Something quick and cool. I wanted it simple, my style. I wanted peace.
I heard about Secret and started to use it. I loved it and enjoyed the excitement…
