How to get started creating an account?
Install the messenger using the supplied apk (if not already installed), and then lauch it. Once lauched, you should be prompted to select your country (you may type it in the search field). Then you shall need to input your phone number without the 0 digit in the other field – then click next. You should then receive a verification code that the messenger normally captures and process automaticaly few seconds after. You may enter in manually if not so.
How do I invite someone over to the messenger?
You should be able to invite anyone on your contacts lists. To do this, tap the Contacts tab on the far right of the messenger menu. Tap the Invite button > tap Invite via Text/SMS > modify the prepopulated text of simply send. Text/SMS rates sadly applies for this action.
How to check which of my contacts use the messenger once the app/client is running?
Tap the cicular button at the bottom right. Contacts already using the messenge should appear with a small green circle and a white tick intead. You may tap any of these contacts to start messaging them.
I have a contact who already use the messenger but I still see the Invite button under the Contacts tab.
If this happens, try to adit their contact and replace the 0 with the country code. And example would be: +27 73 546 8989 instead of 073 546 8989 – where +27 is the country code.
Why is this messenger not available via the Google Play Store?
While I would love the have the Android client available via Google Play Store for the peace of mind for users (especially with regards to security concerns), I do not find the Play Store at all Christian friendly – but that it is often found overly ladened with vain, arragant, inappropriate or somewhat obcene imagery. Which users often have to deal with to access apps hosted there. For Christian charity reasons, I hitherto feel I should rather self-host applications – atleast until a worthy alternatively should hopefully found.
