Catena Gives Anonymous, Location-Based Chats

There are many ways to chat with people on our mobile devices, ranging from dozens of IM services, IRC chat, and many more. After all, one of the most wonderful things about the Internet is the ability to communicate with people everywhere, regardless of geographical location. Now, there is a chat application that connects you anonymously with people in your general area.

XDA Forum Member Jeffail has posted an application called Catena. It’s an application that connects you to chats with other people based on where you are. It has a number of interesting features as well. Jeffail explains the app further:

The main purpose of Catena is to give you an anonymous outlet for calling out to others in your local area and meeting new people, without the burden of identity. Catena lets you chat in a typical instant chat environment, but also lets you post semi-permanent messages on a shared map, for the whole world to see!

This app has a lot of fun and practical uses for people who want to interact with others in their area. If you’re into that sort of thing, this is an app to try out.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
