Updates on our activities and progress.

October 2022 update

Hey backers, Last month went into fixing crashes. The biggest one is that database indexes shouldn't get bugged anymore (which was causing incorrect content to show up when you open a thread). This has been happening since March 2021, and i...

About



Manyverse is a social network app using the SSB protocol (Secure Scuttlebutt) where you can write posts and share with friends nearby or over the internet. It's different from mainstream social networks because your data is yours, it lives on your phone, not in the cloud. So there is no login, no company holding your data, no ads, no tracking of your activity, it's just you and your friends! The app is free and open source software, and it will always remain free.


Features:

  • Write posts (even when offline)
  • Share posts to friends over the internet or nearby (with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi)
  • Scroll through many conversations with friends and add your own comments 
  • Likes
  • Preview posts before publishing
  • Save draft posts
  • Block or mute undesired accounts
  • View images in full-screen and pinch-zoom
  • View animated GIFs
  • Customize your profile
  • (More features as we develop the app!)

Check out roadmap of upcoming features. If we have your support as a backer, we may be able to build these features!

Expense policy

  • From March to June 2022, Andrew Chou and Thomas Belin will do at most 32h (each) of development work. Andrew's hourly rate is 55 USD/h and Thomas' is 33 USD/h. Andre Staltz will not invoice the collective for work done during these months.
