Hoccer – the secure Messenger


Hoccer is a communication service that focuses on the protection of your privacy. It transmits messages and attachments with a maximum level of security (end-to-end transport & encryption). Our app is available to all Android users as a free download and allows transfer of attachments of any size.

For registration, Hoccer requires no sensitive or private information such as phone number or email address.

Hoccer is made in Germany and subject to the high standards of German Data Protection laws.

User reviews of Hoccer – the secure Messenger
Please support App2Sd as announced for Android 2.2! Thanks!

Brilliant Idea, nicely worked out! If only more people in my surrounding had this app, I could throw more pictures around :)

This is pretty neat. Allows you to 'toss' (or 'slide') data between devices. In my testing it's not flawless, but it works. Sliding mechanism definitely works, tossing I am not sure if we even got it to work, but it works. Over wifi I bet you could transfer pretty large files just fine.

Used to be good This used to be my go-to app for transferring text and media between devices, be it phones or computers, but I uninstalled because of the drastic shift in direction.

Suggestion If what is stated correct, it's brillinat. That is, AES 256 bits content encryption via a customised (say 4096 bits) RSA transport and it's end-to-end based, that's exactly what we need. However, how could we know that what was stated by the creator is true? Also, don't you think that a log in screen with a pin or password is essential? The abscence of log out feature drops the rating badly. I'd suggest adding a self-destruction of messages feature. I've contacted the developer, no answer!

What happened? It was pristine the way it was earlier but whatever update you did and made it more accessible for texting and typing, not like we all don't have that anyway with a thousand other apps, this one was special because you could share media. Now I can't even find out how to do that and this was my favorite app
