Oju About and Help

Please read About and Help if you have any questions

So there is no iOS version of this, isn’t this a problem?

Yebo, however … we are a small team and producing the iOS app will still take some time. We have decided to launch OjuChat on Andriod to get it out there, get feedback and see what the world thinks of it.

Why would anyone change to use this app when there are things like WhatsApp, Facebook messenger, Line, Telegram or WeChat to name a few.

There is only one reason … OjuChat by virtue of its content is aligned to the global community of diverse humans of different races, colours, creeds and cultures. Therefore, as a mechanism to communicate, it is better able to allow people to share ideas and emotions in the digital world … it can allow people to be who they are … this is significant.

The app content is amazing, but the app itself is relatively basic, is this not an issue?

For sure … it does not have the bells and whistles that established chat apps have. This is part of the challenge of being an underdog. We do believe that the app itself is fit for purpose in its current form as a chat app. This together with the content we have embedded makes OjuChat quite special, it will only get better from here.

There is a user feedback section within the app, elaborate!

OjuChat is about community and inclusion. To this end we want the development of OjuChat to be driven but its community. There is no point in us building in something into OjuChat with respect to its functionality if the community would prefer something else … the “Tell Us” feature is about us listening to what the people who use OjuChat what from it.

Tell us about privacy?

Well, the way OjuChat works is as follows. If I send you a message, my app sends the server a notification that I have sent you a message. The server sends your app a notification that there is a message from me and then our two phones communicate to transmit the message. This means that the actual text never touches our systems. We only see the notification of a message between two parties, not the content.

In addition to this, conversations, even in a group chat are encrypted in a one-to-one basis. This means if there are three people in a group there will be three different keys used, one for each one-to-one relationship. For four people in a group, six keys for the encryption between each possible one-to-one relationship.
