We’ve all been in situations where we’ve sent some message or pictures we wish we hadn’t: who wouldn’t give anything to have back an embarrassing text?
Likewise, there are times when you’re really concerned about security, but can’t find an alternative to the built-in messaging system.
RakEM makes it blissfully simple to communicate under high pressure situations, or even just in a more secure manner.
Ready to see what all the hype is about (and why you should swap today)? Then head on down below the break for our full review!
Concept and Functionality
To start, let’s explain how RakEM works. Firstly, the app does not tie into the built-in messenger. You can forget all about it, in fact.
What RakEM does is a lot cooler than the standard messenger app you’ve been using, and a lot more practical for the purposes it has in mind.
The app uses a custom-built method of device-to-device communication. When you send a text, it does not touch any kind of server, but is delivered immediately and directly to the user’s device.
That is mind-blowing, and ever-so useful.
As an example, let’s say you get a little intoxicated and fire off a hail of less-than ideal texts. In the morning, you awake to find the user on the other end has yet to read any of them.
This leaves you the option to simply delete all the errors, and then move on with your life. Isn’t that fantastic, as well as face-saving?
This is also quite useful for security purposes. Because no servers are involved, there’s practically no chance of your messages being intercepted. In fact, you can essentially forget about all of your privacy worries.
The messages themselves are fully encrypted, though as mentioned it would be an outright miracle if any of them found the wrong hands.
Design and Interface
Of course, with an app like this, the question is always, “Is it good enough to replace the standard messenger on a day-to-day basis?” And to cut a long discussion quite short . . . yes! It absolutely is.
The app has been cleverly designed, and looks fantastic on all Android devices. It is sleek, simple and above all user friendly.
It is so useful, in fact, we have no doubts that the average Android user could swap and be happy immediately, without any hesitation.
As a free-to-download offering in the Google Play Store, there’s really no reason not to use RakEM. Think of it as an upgraded version of the original text messenger.
It offers more functionality, provides a conversational safety net, and makes our lives that much more secure.
All of this warrants the application a high rating, as well as our firmest of hat-tips. Well done, RakEM!
RakEM requires Android version 2.2+. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
