Antox

(its short for android tox)

The best thing since sliced bread (and the bread slicer)

Antox is a multimedia messenger that allows you to take control of your privacy. By utilizing tcp relays and supernodes we are able to create a means of communication with such a high illusion of decentralization, that even snowden would approve of it

Have they fixed the battery drain yet?

Yes, it was actually fixed back in this commit. If battery drain still persists, we are also offering Antox branded battery banks (coming soon)

But its p2p, what about the data usage?

To cover our asses, wifi only mode is enabled by default. Disable this at your own risk

Why not use uTox for Android?
