With the recent NSA leaks secure messaging is all the rage, the privacy of our messaging is once again on our minds. One of the new range of secure messaging apps is Threema, a messaging app which is so secure even they can not decrypt your messages.
Messages, which includes text, video or location data, are encrypted with your secret key on your device before being sent to Threema’s servers in Switzerland (outside of the jurisdiction of both the EU and US), and only people who you have shared your decoding key with can decrypt your messages, with the recipient key being handed to friends physically, rather than via an insecure electronic route.
The company has been hard at work bringing their app and technology to windows phone, and today they tweeted that it should hit the store on the 27th, saying:
Hooray! Threema for #WindowsPhone will be released this Thursday Nov. 27. In celebration the first 10K users will get Threema at half-price!

The first 10,000 users will get the app half price, which likely means $0.99 instead of $1.99.
