CellTrust is currently trying to ban SMSSecure from app stores. The company claims that SMSSecure creates a confusion with their trademark SecureSMS.
We don't want to fight against fools and we will change the name of the app. This PR shows a notification to the user to focus on the new name.
Suggestions for the new name are opened and you can comment on this PR to make proposals. We have to find it very quickly as SMSSecure is not available on the Amazon App Store and on the US Play Store anymore.
The new name must not be a registered trademark (a directory of trademarks is available online) and its domain name should be available (at least .org and/or .im and/or .io).
Stupid lawyers trying to get their bonus. :-(
So that is what takes it so long to release. BTW, adding messaging over xmpp (encrypted I assume) would bring the functionality back to that of TextSecure 2.6.4, but with more servers available so it would not be as easy to block.
Anyway, all combinations with "Text", "Chat", "Crypto" and "Secure" seem to be already taken. Perhaps a completely different name would be better than. I'll try to think of something.
'gibberish' is great!! make it quick so that someone doesn't steal it.
@BastienLQ by XMPP do you mean OMEMO? i think that maybe you should avoid unencrypted chats and make encryption mandatory. othervise too many mistakes possible.
would you consider Cryptocat integration (it's XMPP + OMEMO)? the new desktop client is amazing and it only needs a mobile client.
