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.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown.
