Needs to be fixed since last update. Ever since the last update the voice message recording has a bug. It records super silently and you have to pretty much hold the speaker right to your ear to be able to understand. Even if the volume is all the way up. Please fix that issue! It's very annoying!

Missing messages with this version. missing messages, the other person receive the notification but not the messages. happened couple times already. if is fixed l'll give 5 ⭐️

Absolutely great app. This app is great. It really proved itself to me when I stayed at a rental with restricted internet that disallowed photos from being sent over messenger. Their nosy internet settings couldn’t detect that I was sending photos with Threema. If you could add cropping to the in app camera (and other editing tools) that would be really useful.

Now has private investors. Can be compromised.. It's getting worse at sending messages in a timely manner. I hate WhatsApp, and I mean hate it. But it works consistently. NEVER an issue with WhatsApp. Threema, every freaking day. I'm starting to take it personally. We pay for this, and it holds up my messages, delivers them out of sequence or doesn't deliver them at all.

Stellar Messaging App!. App has been great for my family and I. We’ve all switched over to messaging, video calls etc, via Threema. However, like with any app, some shortcomings. For example, on iPhone 14 Pro Max the text input bar is pretty narrow. Makes it difficult to tap on it to begin messaging. Another issue is when accidentally recording a voice message there isn’t an actual cancel button, so you will record until you click stop then you have to click off that main window in order to get a notification box requesting deletion. Some minor nuisances however this review is constructive criticism I guess. Keep up the great work!

Auto delete, c’mon fellas. Here’s the thing: Auto delete might not be a 100% reliable (/ safe) feature, but not being able to delete messages is certainly 100% unsafe. Inform your users by a disclaimer and go on with it, not hide behind this silly pretense and cause negative reviews by people that either think they know better or are frustrated about messages that are forever saved on someone else’s phone. Just saw your app featured on The Terminal List, so much potential stopped short.

Needs delete for everyone option & viewed option for received messages. I like Threema but was horrified to discover that one cannot delete messages for everyone. I did not realize that all messages would remain on the receiver’s phone. I get confused on Threema when I have listened to an audio message because there is no indication that I have already listened to it. A check or something would be nice. If there are many audio messages and one gets interrupted, then it is unclear where to start relistening again. I do not like the red while recording messages, it is very distracting to the eye. I would prefer a milder color. I also like that in WhatsApp I can type a reply in the reply box while listening to a message but that does not work in Threema. Otherwise, I like the clean design of Threema and the privacy.

Great app but it needs improvements.. I love the app and the idea of the ID and no contact & email sync but it needs a few features. 1. Expiring photo option (view once or forever). 2. Messages time duration (1hr, 1 day, 1 week etc). Other than those, it’s all good.

Best app in the entire App Store. No need to give your phone number out to anyone. THREEMA gives you an ID which you use instead of your phone number. No other secure messaging application allows you to protect your phone number in this way. Also, because you pay for THREEMA you know exactly why they’re doing what they’re doing. For money from you. You’re paying and this your data isn’t the price. I’ve been with THREEMA since the start and their developers come with constant improvements and updates. I love this app because it means freedom.

Happy user. I'm very happy with the threema app which I use to keep up with family members. My only disappointment is that I cannot join in on the group chats using an iPhone. Is there a projected date for adding capability for group chat with iPhone?

New logo. Only thing I’d change is the icon. If your using this app and don’t want people to realize it’s a messaging app it’s kind of hard. The picture logo is literally a message bubble with a lock in it, which is pretty suspicious. Other than that I think it’s great.

Get this app now. I’ve been using Threema for years It is by far the most safe and secure messaging app out there Once you pay for the original app, there are never any additional charges for any messages, pictures, videos, or texts sent... ever!! I used to pay a lot of money to send even just one text message to family members in Europe. Not anymore.. I hear this app is very popular in Europe, but somehow I don’t think it will ever catch on in the United States. But if you do purchase it, it is definitely worth it. You will need to tell your friends and your family members about the app because they need to have the app as well in order to communicate with you. Once anyone else has this app it’s the only way I communicate with them. They begin to use it too and it becomes your normal way of sending messages back and forth. Almost all of my text messages to people I know, go through Threema. Get this app and spread the word. Remember freedom means “No Big Brother!”

Well executed but missing some features. On the security side the application is very well executed. On the messaging side there are a few features that would be desirable to have; The ability to quote a picture. Read receipts on messages in group chats (who in the group has seen your message).

Want a refund- not transparent. I want a refund, they are not a transparent company. They are suppose to be a opened source company but now have private investors. Do they let their customers know, no. You could just a app such as signal for free and have the option to have the messages auto delete and delete messages for everyone.

Message Retract. You should be able to retract your messages and it doesn’t have this feature. Or Message expiration where messages get completely dusted after certain amount of time

Great app, but some slight issues.. Is it normal on iOS when recording a voice message, for voiceover iOS is built-in screen reader, to switch to the earpiece? I ask, because it makes it almost impossible to here, and determine where they stop/send button is, also the problem there, if you put the phone too close to your ear, the screenshots off. I'm running iOS 15.0.1.

More people need to use this.. Security, privacy, anonymity, what more could you want? The answer is more people using this app.

Needs option for disappearing messages. Nearly perfect, but I hope they can include an option for disappearing messages in the near future, like signal does.

Thank you Threema - you saved Slovakia. Your app revelaed the biggest political scandal in the Slovak Republic history. All you need is to break inside (it took police some months to do it - you might work on more secure standards) of one of the biggest influential oligarchs who used it for long time. Now all Slovakia could read the messages and reveal the biggest political and economical thefts made by politicians, oligarchs, mobs. So big thank you for liberating our country. (all in the news last two weeks)

Amazing app, lacks group perms. For just about anything I recommend this app to the fullest and was worth every penny. However I wish that when I made a group chat with friends I could choose who mod/admins the group-chat. Other than that perfect app

Solid and safe, bud so buggy and subpar interface. This app overall isn’t terrible, but it is so buggy whenever I’m messaging anyone. Also the interface is weird and not placed weird. For example I’m constantly hitting the record button on keyboard while typing, but I have small fingers and it doesn’t happen texting on any other app or messaging. Anyway, it’s secure and it does what it has to do, that’s the only reason I’m not upset I spent money on this app.

App keeps getting better. The last few updates have made it even better. Please add stickers though. It’s the only feature I and my family still want from WhatsApp. Thank you

Great but behind on features. This app is great for secure messaging and anonymity. I wish this app used a in-app purchase model so it could be downloaded for free to increase the user base. They could then charge an in-app purchase for features like voice calling, group chat, or other features that could be limited but allow for basic secure messaging for new users. However, for being a paid app, it seems to lag in features compared to competing products. I hope they add or fix some of these items: - Perfect Forward Secrecy on the end to end layer - self destructing and deleting messages - video calling - allow the user to do other messaging while a call is in progress.

The Best Secure Messenger!. Threema offers the best security of any encrypted messaging app available! Not only is it based in the pro-privacy country of Switzerland, but it has also been comprehensively audited by a reputable Swiss security firm and found to have no vulnerabilities. The other great thing that makes it unique is that only you have access to your private key and you can exchange public keys directly with friends and family, which proves the identity of your contacts. This robust authentication protects your communications to a greater degree than similar apps. For more confirmation, check out past Security Now podcasts for why Threema is the best and most secure messenger you can use. If you are looking for a messaging app that gets security right, look no further than Threema.

Good, but buggy. Has a lot of good features, and works a majority of the time, but has quite a bit of bugs. One of the bugs it has is that sometimes, during a video call, I begin to hear an echo of my voice. Once I end the call and reestablish a new connection, the echo goes away. Another issue just arose when I got 16.2, which is I won’t be able to hear the person I’m having a video chat with through speaker, but shutting the app down helps. Also has other bugs such as not given the option to use the camera unless I hold down on the users name from the contact list which will then give me the option to take a photo. There are a few more, but I could be here for a while. Just hoping some of these things can get resolved because they are quite annoying. That said, good app overall.

🤯No disappearing messages?!?🤯. I love this app and all the privacy features it has to offer but I am blown away that it doesn’t have the option to users to choose or burn their messages (or conversations?!?) I’ll definitely give this app ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if (once) it’s added! 😇

Preferred secure messenger. Really needs more reactions options. The ability to “like” or HEART a message would be greatly appreciated. This feature is used by empaths on other platforms extensively. A thumbs up doesn’t cut it.

p6060q. 1- Why is the message not erased to the other party? 2- Why is there no feature to modify the message? All these things are not available, you wish to include these things. In the next update

Nice App, but need emoticon support to text messages. The app is nice and secure but I find it difficult to react to people’s messages. I do not like to use the quote because it takes up to much space. Use something similar to Apple when reacting to a message. If everybody reacts to a message it takes up too much space on your display!

It’s whatever.. Found two typos when signing up… here is what I found… errors in quotations. Do you want to continue without enabling Threema Safe? When using Threema Safe “YOUR” can restore your Threema ID, contacts “,and” groups in case you “LOOSE” access to your device.

Nice but could add a couple of privacy features.. Message deletion for all parties as well as timed deletion options like signal. Also the desktop app is mostly useless because it requires your phone to be unlocked and the app open on the phone while using on your PC. Perhaps the devs can make some enhancements and make the app better.

time to say goodbye. Long-term customer here. Threema used to be a secure option to message and start phone calls across the Atlantic. But I can’t recommend the expenditure anymore: Many years ago, I’ve asked family and friends to pay the small fee to stay in contact. The messaging worked reliably and phone calls were high-quality (much better than Skype). However, we’re in 2023 and phone calls frequently fail to connect through official servers, but show up as missed call with the recipients. With Facetime being a valid airbag alternative now (encryption is nice, but it technology needs to function first), Threema doesn’t have a place on my phone anymore. Don’t call me, and I won’t be able to call you. Let’s stay friends.

Great at security, mostly great at the rest. This looks like a messaging app written by people who take security seriously. Well done. I’m only taking off one star because the onboarding process was a mess. At one point, you’re asked to enter a password, and again to verify it. That’s all fine, but the password fields are so far down the page that the on-screen keyboard completely covers the second one — and the page doesn’t allow scrolling vertically! Eventually I discovered a workaround (tap Passwords, then Cancel, then tap the second password field, then blindly type your password on the keyboard that appears). But this is really something that should have been caught in testing. This makes it impossible (AFAICT) to paste a password from the clipboard, which discourages the use of strong passwords from a password manager. And that’s not good for security. Aside from that one major inconvenience, though, this looks like a great app.

Good but no “edit message” function. This could be the perfect secure messaging app if it were “fat-fingered perfectionist”-proof :D, as having to copy, delete, paste, edit, then resend just to “edit” a single sent message is so much hassle compared to just hitting an edit-button. For now I and my similarly fat-fingered perfectionist friends will be begrudgingly sticking with the less secure alternatives for now. If this is ever implemented, I will start recommending Threema, as otherwise the UX feels solid, better than Wire’s and even Signal’s. By the way, if the concern is with potentially allowing people to edit maliciously, maybe a mutual-consent-based “Allow editing of sent messages in chats” switch is an appropriate solution. Or perhaps just an “Edit history” list.

Lack of Phone Support & No Detailed Instructions re Use. The Threema App maybe superior and it may offer unique features that other Apps don’t offer. Yet, as a non-IT person, the ability to get the appropriate functions working without more comprehensive support or written instructions is a significant short coming. Chats are available but to get the benefits up and working appear to be a major effort. Inquiries were made to Threema regarding the availability of written instructional materials; it appears they are not available.

1 thing missing…... SELF DESTRUCTIVE MESSAGES IS A MUST. Other than that the app still deserves five stars because it is by in large the most trustworthy secure messaging app. Signal makes you linke phone number, Not Threema! You can use it totally anonymously. Clear pay for play profit motive. Still deserves 5 stars but please integrate Self destructive messages!

Best messaging app for security. If you want a pretty messenger, stick with the Messages app, Facebook, or maybe Signal - they’re all “secure”. If you want a secure messenger, get Threema. It sends messages securely from device to device, not user to user, so you need to think a bit differently about using it, but that difference in thinking is “this message is encrypted on my device and sent to that other device, which I’ve confirmed is the correct device by scanning its barcode”. This is handy (and one of my main uses) because you know that your snarky comment isn’t going to show up on your wife’s computer as she’s projecting her screen in the conference room at work. True device to device encryption, plus the company’s location in Switzerland with physical control over its servers, combines to make this a very secure messaging app. Even if you’re just using it to send snarky notes about employers, it’s worth the price.

Excellent call quality and stability. Highly recommended!!!. We are calling half away around the world with very limited internet connection speeds, I mean very limited. We are amazed each time how clear and immediate the conversation can be. The stability is outstanding as well, calls are only dropped if I accidentally touch the wrong button!

Awesome messenger. Couple of touches are missing, such as video call support and if developer can enable sent message edit function for short period of time i.e you can edit your sent message within first 20 seconds, then would be awesome. Another thing, instead of tap and select, slide right/left would be much easier.

This App Is Designed To Alienate You. Maybe there’s some brilliant back-end encryption (though do some searching about that and come to your own conclusions), but the app seems positively designed to make you throw your phone across the room. From the new messages being pushed as software updates *that you can’t turn off* - the button for turning off announcements is ineffective - to the giant green blob concealing the text window the first time you try to use the thing, to the bizarre and completely inexplicable ritual of what seems like making some sort of passcode but isn’t, everything about this thing screams “we, the engineers, hate you and want you to suffer”.

Calling works off and on. Having some issues with calling to another threema user it will ring sit on connecting and then disconnect. Work fine a couple times and had just stopped.

Alright app. Cool interface, and solid security protection from remote devices accessing information. I would recommend that they create a burn on read feature similar to wickr that deletes messages as they are read. Good protection unless someone has access to your physical device.

Best app there is. Don’t have to use a phone number to setup an account. That’s so massively important. They actually charge for the app which is a major positive if you care about what their motivations should be. Privacy first and then they basically try to copy WhatsApp on features. Always a little behind on the feature list but you’re choosing privacy over minor functionality bonuses. My favorite app and I couldn’t support this company or their vision more.

Not impressed. While threema works overall, I’m less than impressed with the audio overrides and the disconnects. If I’m on a call and play a video, the call will completely disconnect. If I’m playing music and merely open the app, it will kill my audio for about 5 seconds, and then artificially lower the volume. Drives me bonkers. I’m constantly having to go into my settings and revoke (or grant) permission to the microphone depending on what-else I’m doing. Very annoying and detracts from the usefulness of the app itself. I’ve contacted support and the only thing they could tell me was to upgrade to the newest version of it. I’m already running the newest version. It’s the only message app that has been incapable of handling audio in a competent way. Very disappointing to say the least.

This App is Great but.... I am experiencing a bad experience when trying to send some pictures in this app. It get to long to sending, and mostly it failed, because i can not wait the pictures loading before close this app and move to another things i need to do on my phone. Please do something. I never tried video, but if pictures get that long, wondering how long the video will take

An inconvenient communication app. Such an inconvenient communication app for voice-messages. It doesn’t support running in iOS-background, which means it can’t automatically download voice-messages or images you received. Every time you get a incoming-voice notification, you have to open this app and tap the voice-message you received and wait for a long while to download it. If you don’t live in Europe, I strongly suggest you not to using it, because downloading voices-messages from Threema’s sever takes really long time. Not even to mention that if you receive more than one voice-messages, you have to tap them each one by one to download, waiting and waiting for these downloading processes. Too annoying!! What an era do we live in? Almost every communication app is now having this feature downloading media automatically.

Love Threema but,. I’m giving Threema 5 STARS after it becomes open source but, what’s the point of all these features that added recently and Threema still blocked in many countries, what’s the point if I can’t call, text or send photos to anyone in my list. they can’t use Threema without a VPN 90% of my friends switched to another IM app because it’s available in their country’s that’s why Threema is not popular so until you find a way to use it without a VPN then we can enjoy all features otherwise it’s useless.

easily doable features needed. We need to be able to delete messages from all devices similar to the app session. I’ve been sending all my friends $5 to convince them to join this app, I know it’s not much but I’ve bought about 8 accounts for people and that’s my only major complaint and why I still prefer session. If you can fix this I will be using this exclusively as will many people following me to the app.

Reset. I like this app but I just reset my phone and lost the app now I’m trying to open it again I’m not able please someone help me thanks. If I forgot my password any option to change it?

the best no question about that.. first rule: you get what you if its free its crap or screwed you by the T&C. i like to see more support for the apple watch so that u can actually write a new message without the use of an notification of an unreaded message by the phone from the watch.

Can’t edit or delete for all. Great principles this app but very inflexible - can’t edit messages or delete for all. Also no Mac desktop version. Will keep using unencrypted alternative for now and watch to see if this app improves.

Awesome secure messaging. Secure messaging done properly. Exactly how I envisioned it working. Love the 3 star system and the QR codes.

GOTTA FIX ASAP. This was meant to be the BEST from the REST.. every time you make phone calls it breaks up and I believe it’s not 100% encrypted and insecure.... IF I COULD RATE YOU IT WOULD BE ZERO!!! Who ever is running it should be sacked ASAP.👎🏽

Not bad but no Burn on Read timer!. It’s not a bad app but in the scheme of things is really no better than any other encryption messaging app. The biggest downfall of Threema is the lack of ability to have messages deleted on both ends either upon reading or after a set time eg; 5mins, 30mins etc. it lacks the privacy users are wanting in an encryption messaging app.

Best messenger ever!. So much better than WhatsApp! Very neat app, secure and super reliable! Perfect messenger!

Fantastic. A really great messaging app!!! It pains me to use other messaging apps now that I use Threema. Threema is definitely in a league of its own.

Great app, but has problems now. I have used the app for 4 years. Has always been the got to app for myself and friends for private messaging. Since the last update though, messages are not uploading properly for any of us. Often we when we see each, we complain that the other hasn’t responded. In actual fact, out messages sometimes don’t load onto the server from our phone. Apart from that, very happy with it.

Push notification. No notifications even on Lock Screen. FIX ASAP!

Auper. Worthy alternative to others. Safe an easy to use

Perfect. End to end encryption. Clean. Fast. Dark theme was the cherry on top. Keep it up.

Usabilty average. There is still no high-res support for the latest ipad even after the most recent update. Disappointing. Until this is fixed it's unusable for me. Two stars.

Highly Recommended. This is without a doubt best in class for security and data encryption. Highly endorsed. Great job

Great app to use but why…. Why did the privacy policy changed from no data collected to linking identifiers? This was the reason I bought the app to begin with, and it being a paid app should mean that you don’t need my data. Signal manages to essentially offer the same product without identifiers for free.

Good app, but hide stale contacts is the dumbest feature I have seen in a while. This is a very nice messaging app with excellent privacy features, but the feature to „inactivate“ and hide contacts that have not been on there is really the dumbest thing I’ve seen in a while, and I doubt it’s tested with users. From my perspective: 1) It will certainly hurt uptake of the app: Most people who decide on whether or not to use the app will check how many people are on there. Seeing only a few contacts will discourage them. See network effect. 2) Having „(inactive)“ display next to your name for 24 hours after you started using the app again just feels plain weird in an app that is boasting it’s privacy features. Who says I‘m inactive? And why doesn’t the very action of sending a message determine activity? Also, having to chat with „inactive“ contacts with the constant reminder that they are deemed inactive (it shows in the chat and in notifications) is an unpleasant experience.

Everyone should be using this. East to use, perfect UI and totally secure

Anonymous. Now if only there’s disappearing messages and Threema would be perfect

Solid effort at encrypted communication. Excellent app so far with a little room for improvement.

Good app. Nice easy to use interface. I wish it used the Axolotl 2 protocol like TextSecure.

iPad support!. Needs to support iPad.

Auto Delete. The app needs auto delete, it does not have this function this its downfall.

Great app. This is a very polished private messenger app. Fully accessible with voice over

Well maintained and secure. I’ve been using Threema for over five years. It’s constantly improved, secure and has a great feature set. I’ve never had it crash. Paying for it is a great, sustainable idea. I recommend anyone serious about privacy consider using Threema.

Secure but laggy. Secure app, but very laggy, can take up to 5 min for a message I have sent to even pop up, I haven’t been able to send a photo easily without sending it 20 times with it saying try again every time so forget about videos, I think signal is the go tbh

I love it but no notifications for messages after turning my phone back on everytime for 4.2.3. The older version would notify you of messages as soon as you turn on your phone. On the latest version of Threema (which I got this year), if my phone is turned off and someone sends me a message, I don’t get any notifications at all even when my phone is turned back on already. I flew to Europe so I turned my phone off during the flight. My friend sent me a message while my phone was turned off. After landing in the airport, I turned my phone on. I got notifications for my emails and texts, etc right away with no issues. But Threema never gave me a notification for the messages that I received during the roughly 10 hours that my phone was turned off. Also, my friend said that she only saw the envelope picture next to the message that she sent me which meant that it was only sent to the server so she thought I blocked her too LOL The same thing happens everytime my phone has no battery and loses power. As soon as I turn my phone back on, no notification for messages. I love Threema but how do I fix this issue? I would like to be notified for messages sent to me while my phone is turned off, even without opening the app, as soon as I turn my phone back on again. The older version used to do this. Thank you.

Highly Recommended. Amazing chat app. Reliable and secure.

Love it! But…….. Needs iPad version……Also needs to be able to reverse the camera in iPad.

Meh. Mediocre messaging app. It crashes quite a bit then when the prompt to send report pops up it disappears before I can hit submit. Sometimes messages get stuck as undelivered for some time. Cannot receive phone call while on a call in this app or the app call drops. On occasion when answering a call one or the other persons can hear but can’t be heard. Have to hang up and call back. When on a video call one or the other person can’t hear or be heard by the other person. Have to hang up and call back. When an alarm goes off while In a call the call drops. Keyboard disappears randomly. Have to close app and open again to get it to reappear. Options at the top to open media, contact picture and call button disappear randomly. Have to close app and open again. I don’t think a day has gone by without some kind of bug but it’s better than WhatsApp and all those other privacy compromising messaging apps

Great end-to-end encrypted chat app. This app has 1-1 chat, group chat, calls and video calls. Everything is end-to-end encrypted and app is from a Swiss company with servers in Switzerland. App is open source and audited to guarantee privacy is as advertised. Best thing is that the identifier is not your phone number or email address.

Can't use on extra device. + nice user interface - doesn't support using same account on multiple devices - not clear on how to use groups

Really well done!. It’s private It works amazing No personal information Wow a company doing it right

Enjoying the app so far!. The only thing I’d like to see is more sound choices for messages; I think a greater selection would be nice or maybe even the possibility to choose a tone that you have on your phone. I like the sound selection for calls though, they all sound pretty neat — maybe some similar tones in a shorter sequence could be made for messages? Overall though, it’s been a pleasant app to use thus far.

Great chat client. Great chat functionality throughout, with end to end encryption as a bonus.

Very satisfied. Very satisfied about the purchase. Do what it says: secure and fast.

4.2 Spanish Glitch. 50% of the app text is now in Spanish, yet I am French and my device is set to French! Had to downgrade to 4.1.3 for a bug-free experience. AVOID 4.2 Edit : 4.2.1 working fantastically well. I recommend updating to this version. 5 Stars.

Can we get GIFs please?. Threema is a great very reliable messenger that finally respects the privatsphere of Personal messaging. However, even after years into the business, and especially not at the current run for WhatsApp alternatives, people are missing some toys. Since I also on signal, I fell that chats there are much more fun just because of the use of GIFs. It would be great to see a GIF library integrate to Threema, too.

The best!. La meilleur messagerie!

Call Quality is great, video crystal clear. I am looking for best call quality, I can say the audio quality is way better than most apps, but group audio / video call feature is missing. Slightly buggy at times, but overall great.

Awesome app!. Great functionality and best encryption available. Great app! This is wayyy better than whatsapp.

Good app. So far so good keep it up so fast and smooth

Great App. Simply the best secure iOS messaging app out there.

Love it ❤️. This app is awesome it keeps me in touch with family overseas ...just love this app

Garbage. Hard to connect to calls, had it for 3 weeks total POS. Push notifications stopped working, redownloaded 3 times. DO NOT BUY

Dark mode.. Please bring back the possibility to select dark mode (or other king of appearance change) inside the app (user can override the systemwide settings) to have the possibility to distinguish threema from other texting app.

blocked in China.. blocked in China.

Love it 👍. The app takes privacy to the next level and then some. Unlike Telegram and Signal you don’t have to provide a phone number (or even an email address) although you could for convenience. Call quality is great and texting works flawlessly. Well worth the small one-time investment.

La meilleure!. Vraiment rien à dire de négatif ! Superbe application 👌

Perfection. ♥️♥️♥️

Great app, recommended on Security Now. I've trusted Steve Gibson's recommendations for years and he hasn't steered us wrong so far. :) Happy with the app

Greatest app!. So far so good! Will love to have yahoo! Emoticons instead on worthless emoji... Hope the app will stay stable ! Very nice so far! Plz increase video length (1minutes is nothing!)

Truly Secure. No glitches. Runs as smooth as iMessage but better since it's fully secure. You'll never have to worry about your information and messages being intercepted with THREEMA! Great app! Worth every penny.

Brilliant App. Hands down best chat app, the fact that they are putting security first is commendable. Interface is smooth and easy on the eyes. The icon has even grown on me, although I'd be interested in seeing it's appearance change. Thank you for putting your time and efforts into such a great app.

Easy and simple. Great App. Good replacement of Whatsup. I really like this and feel more secure.

Best messaging app. Was initially apprehensive, but really glad we chose Threema! This is the best messaging app I have used and on top of it has real security features. Well worth the one time cost. That small payment got rid of all kinds of spam, noise and unwanted connections on Telegram/Whatsapp. Very nice feature that it is not necessary to use your phone number or even an email in order to sign up. Very very happy with this app!

Works really smoothly. Spread the word, invite others and get your privacy back!

p6060q. Please include a message deletion system for both parties And there is no message adjustment system in the Threema application. . All apps have these features. Sometimes I write a message and I want to delete it or I want to modify the message. But these characteristics do not exist.

The best private messaging app. None of the others can compare with Threema’s design and security.

Freezes. Whenever a call is initiated, the entire iPad freezes

Last update. This update made the app not opening unless disabled face detection

Perfect but…. You should add “Delete For Everyone” feature, or make timing feature at leas.

Almost perfect. The security provided by this app is great. Locking the app with a passcode is another great feature. Only drawback is how impersonal it seems not knowing the online status of your contact. Messages feel as though they are being shot off into the dark without knowing if your contact is online or when they were last seen. Most messaging apps seem to offer that these days.

Useful app! Keeps getting new features. This is a very helpful app and I'm very glad it exists.

I love this Messenger. For several years I use this tremendous messenger. My family and I are very satisfied with the service which Threema provides. For several years I use this tremendous messenger. The performance & privacy is excellent, fast, calls are excellent (clear) and the videos called . Threema for its price offers excellent product and service. Thank You ! Threema .

Keep staying at the welcome page and no reactions. Bug loop!!! Rebooting the app or the device cannot solve this problem! Threema 4.9.1 iOS 16.2

Great messaging app, feature rich. This is a great messaging app regardless of security. It has voice, video, pictures you name it. I mainly used it in the first place because I needed a password protected messaging app. This fit the bill perfectly but since then they've added tons of features including the ones I listed above. Definitely worth the price of admission and is just a great app.

Perfect messaging app and fast!. I like the extra security of the lock passcode feature (something that whatsapp doesn't have), the ability to export chat logs and media in a single e-mail plus its asymmetric ECC based encryption, all that makes this app the #1 among all the mobile messaging apps. Thanks for the button to see all the media in a chat!

Delete for everyone. Add this feature

Excellent. We hope the support of arabic

It's questionable. The disadvantages are: 1 nominally to protect privacy, but the APP must verify the real Apple ID to use, which objectively provides the possibility of stealing the user's real identity. 2 lack of message timing auto-destruction.

Password. I don’t understand why in an upgrade some time ago they took away the letters under the numbers (as on a telephone) and never put them back. For me this makes it harder to use because I remember letters more easily than numbers, hence I have to look up my password, hence I use less.

Since the last update it hangs up often. App is also freezing since last update. Why do y’all keep screwing with it. Please add full Apple Watch support. This freezing is really messing with my system btw

Good app. Good app

Video messaging can’t compete with Marco Polo. I convinced my dating partner to give this app a try for video messaging instead of using Marco Polo. 5 of the first 7 messages she recorded couldn’t be processed and were deleted. She’s given up and the $5 I paid for her app are now up in 🔥s. Please do better.

I love it!. Did you know the US NSA considers the body of a text message to be metadata? Metadata--that thing no one seems to care about? Yeah, the contents of your texts are being saved. I have nothing to hide from the people I trust, but I cannot trust a lying government or agency regardless of reason. I'm getting friends to sign up and handing them $2 when they buy Threema. No one has an excuse to be spied on any longer.

Good privacy but quite some deficiencies. It works and is a good alternative to data consuming messaging apps. I don’t find it that reliable, especially the desktop version.

Threema can’t find my backup. I upgraded my phone and was unable to restore my credentials, even though I had them backed up to the Threema Server some time ago. I even carefully had store my backup password. I lost all the documents that my family had sent me and all their communications - very upset and deleted the app forever.

Review. Messaging works great, my only complaint is that if I do an audio call, half through it loses connection. This has happened numerous times so I only use Threema for the messaging part now.

Great messenger, with limitations. I really wish I could ❤️ a message. It’s important to me and my boyfriend.

Good app but zero support. The app is stellar in its implementation of end encryption, and the interface is mostly well done. However two issues that I have never received an answer when emailing support: 1) the text entry field is constantly being obscured and especially now with ios8. 2) I emailed and asked if the contents of the chats were separately encrypted in that I was wondering if anyone who could into an iCloud backup or backup of the iPhone data on the mac would be able to see the data as in any other app with a third party utility. Again. No response. (Yes the person has to be able to unlock the phone but if they have access to the already trusted mac they can rifle they any of the files). For a developer that wants to lead with an end to end encryption solution, I feel this kind of question needs to be answered. They don't. Or any other questions.

Screenshots. For added security I would recommend being unable to screenshot messages like Confide. I love Threema. Keep up the great work.

Needs Work. Great idea, poor execution

Fix the App!. I love threema. Five stars. After the most recent update, I can barely type. It locks up half of the time. This is utter nonsense! (iPhone 7 Plus 256GB) -- devs, please address! (Then I will happily rate this back to 5 stars)

Awesome (!) App, just the last update.... Love the app, but ever since the last update to iOS13 it’s not possible anymore to see the text you add to a picture before sending it to THREEMA.

Cant type IDs that arent exactly 8 chars. I dont know when this happened but My friend cannot send to my ID Because my ID is not exactly 8 Chars. It seems it cannot be more or less than 8 chars which were valid at some point earlier in the software history. EDIT This works correctly after investigating it further they were using the nickname and not the threema id under my profile

Good, but needs work.. This is a solid, secure messaging app and I enjoy using it. Though, there are a few features I feel need to be seriously reconsidered, or perhaps even removed. 1. The ability to export an entire conversation Into a zip file without the secondary users consent 2. The inability to block users Other than that, this is a pretty solid app. In the future however, I would also recommend adding group administration options.

Where are my messages?. My brother uses a windows phone and our family uses iPhones. We already looked in frequently asked questions to fix the issue on our own; his messages show up on our notifications but when we open the messages there is nothing there. I'm missing out on family pics :(. He receives old messages from us that didn't go through at first or none at all. Please make windows and iPhone threema comparable! Otherwise, great app!!

Customize icon. Can you please give us the option to change the apps icon?

down for the whole day. been using this app almost 6 months now. A good and bad experience. Threema is down today can’t make a call the whole day or accepting calls either. I needed to make calls every hour to out of country relying this app and totally useless.? hope they fix it now

Apple CarPlay. Please update to add an option/toggle that the user can choose to enable to support Apple CarPlay.

Original sound. I love Threema. High security messanger app. And Threema sound is very original!

Web Client. Threema says that due to Ios/Macos limits Web client can only be used with iOS app running on background. I wonder how Whatsapp can overcome this but Threema can’t.

Great product with German data protection. Love this app and its technical implementation!

Best mobile messenger 👌. You been looking for a simple and gorgeous messenger? Then your done now! Threema uses end-to-end encryption and a qr-code verification for best security and safe transmission of your text. 🔏 You're not forced to load up your contacts and even if you do its not getting stored in Switzerland and sent there hashed.👍 Through different verification levels you see how save your connection really is.❤️💛💚 If your talk business or just like the feeling of not being monitored this is an app for you and your community!

Love the security. I am very security oriented and I enjoy this app. I do agree that no being able to backup more than 20MB is frustrating, but the privacy and security is worth the wait for that to be fixed. I also enjoy that this app can be separately locked unlike just about all of the other messengers out there. And I like that the accounts are NOT going to get purged if they are over a year old and have no activity.

Love. I love threema so much that I use it as my primary messaging app. Unfortunately, not everyone has it yet. A suggestion might be to implement an interface we can receive and respond to non threema text messages (similar to Facebook messenger's recent update where we can respond to text messages from within the app!) that way we would not have to continue to switch between apps for conversations but i understand that that might compromise the security of the corporation because that's what threema is known for. I'll forever recommend this app to everyone looking for a secure messaging portal and I continue to look forward to your updates

Super!. Very good so far!

Password. Can’t get past password stage. Won’t accept any combinations. Please help.

Bad update. For me this app has been 5 stars but the latest app has unresponsive UI. The app crashes and hangs which it never did before.

Best app there is. My most used app and the best app there is. No one does anything more than text all day long. Threema enables you to do this while at the same time feeling secure that others are not reading the messages. Based in Switzerland, with real end to end security, and with all the features of the other messengers. Threema is my most used and favorite app.

Great app!. Searching for a secure way to communicate with my friends I found threema. It does what it was designed for really well. It's easy to use - the public key exchange is definitely the best I've ever seen. What I miss is group chat and the ability to use it on several devices with the same account. As far as I understood this will be a future upgrade. Anyway, this app deserves the 5 stars and is well worth $2!

After todays update Threema did not start on IOS16.2. After todays update Threema did not start on IOS16.2

BOTH SIDES DELETION FEATURE. Guys , your application is perfect, the only missing feature which would make this my and many's best and #1 communication app is the " Delet for both sides " feature. Do it fast please that would make hundreds of people using this app today ! Thanks !!

Great app, currently is slow. The app lags for 3-7 seconds whenever I click any media. I will update to 5 stars when this is fixed.

I love it but there is no Mac version. It’s a great secure messaging app with huge potential but still needs some improvement. Hope it can support Mac OS soon!

way bettet then zoom 😆🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸. you should incorporate AI generated qr codes to every call and message for full anonimity👌✌️ i would pay 5 to 10 dollars if that was incorporated you could dominate britan,germany and china. maybe AI random generated IP address as well?
