Texting, with superpowers

Message sent, message received

Count on delivery confirmation receipts for every message, so you can be sure that you're getting through to the other side.

GPS location mapping

Download free, detailed offline maps of any location in the world. Save and share pins so you can find yourself and others effortlessly.

Stationary relay mode

Breadcrumbyour devices

Privacy, please
