Say hello to Quickie. No, not the sex thing.

Say hello to Quickie. No, not the sex thing.


What is it?

Although the name can be interpreted a several different ways, it makes total sense for this new messaging application (you’ll see what I mean). From the name I thought it was a spin on the existing Tinder application but, Quickie is a live messenger app that’s centered around privacy. With Quickie, speed and privacy is the priority, the messages you send go through super quick without you having to press “send”. You don’t have to worry about “big brother” looking into what you’re talking about because, the messages you send and receive are deleted as soon as they are viewed or after 24 hours. This could be the ideal app to send quick messages as well as pictures if you’d like. I know, you’re thinking, “Isn’t that the same thing as Snapchat?”. Quickie is quite different from Snapchat because it’s a lot more secure and more private. For people who value privacy, Quickie is the way to go.

What does it do?

The features of Quickie are very simple and they work well. Quickie allows you to send messages as soon as they are created and the messages are deleted as soon as they are read. With Quickie you can send text messages, audio messages, GIFs straight from your camera, animated sketches and even quick selfies. Your messages are not stored on any servers, this means that your messages are completely private.

According to the app makers:

Quickie is an exciting new way to connect with your closest friends.
Enjoy chatting, sending audio messages, sketching or sharing fun animated selfies. You will feel closer to your friends, sharing some hilarious moments and messages.
Speed up chatting and send Quickies in a jiffy – you don’t even need to press send! Messages are sent automatically when you finish typing, and vanish once delivered. You can express yourself naturally, just like in real conversation.
Don’t miss out on the important stuff! messages will disappear in 24 hours if you don’t open them!
Feel safe – We don’t keep anything on our servers to protect your privacy – all messages automatically self destruct and deleted once viewed or after 24 hours.

Quickie helps you focus on the people that matter – it allows you to add up to 8 friends, keeping a private and intimate connection with the people you care most about.

Who can use it?

This application is available on both iOS and Android. You can download the Android Application here and the iOS Application here.
