Hoccer – the secure Messenger

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.


Hoccer is a secure alternative to traditional text messaging services, which use your 3G or Wifi. Send messages, photos, videos, contacts, locations, and much more free and, most notably, safe.


For registration, Hoccer requires no sensitive or private information such as phone number or email address. Your identity remains invariably anonymous, because for Hoccer, any user is just a randomly generated number (Client ID). Furthermore, your contacts are protected, no synchronization of your address book and details of private data (data minimization) are needed. Hoccer is made in Germany and subject to the high standards of German Data Protection laws.

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.
