Messaging Apps: Bleep

[sc:software-category ]Messaging apps have been centralized services for a long time, but Bleep from BitTorrent looks to change that.

Currently I have four different messaging apps that I use; Skype, WhatsApp, Viber and BBM.  They all have a centralized service of some kind (Skype being a kind of exception but not really) and security is not a high priority with any of them.

Bleep uses the BitTorrent protocol to make s distributed network with encryption built-in and no centralized servers.

If they can get broad OS support I’ll be very interested in moving away from all of my other messaging apps on to Bleep.
