What's a good "messages" alternative? The Google one keeps getting more creepy...

@InSEC @gudenau Signal and Silence are pretty good. If you don't mind a closed source paid app Textra is also great.

@bclindner @gudenau It appears Silence isn't being maintained anymore. At least not at the play store, sadly.

@InSEC @bclindner So silence isn't maintained and it looks like signal needs both ends to have it...

@gudenau @bclindner signal only need both to have it for end to end encryption. You can still use it fine as an message replacement
