I’m not skilled in the way you guys are and I’m just curious to the usability and ‘public’ value of the current state of the network. So my apologies for silly questions up front.
Imagine we create an app and add it to https://apps.safenetwork.org/ or even better, in the app stores for everyone to download.
First, is this even possible?
Now, imagine that we create a mobile app, Android or iOS doesn’t matter, but preferably native.
Let’s make a chat app. We call it SAFECHAT
An app like Telegram/Whatsapp etc. Something that is actually useful and not just a techy-proof-of-something-hardly any masses understand.
Would this be possible?
I’m pretty sure that, if that is the case, we can easily mobilize a group of people here to bootstrap this, different people contributing (from money, development, to designs, whatever it takes). We could even do large-group-ownership approach somehow.
We all know that MAIDSAFE is building the biggest thing ever, and we patiently and respectively let the development team work their road-map in their own time.
However, a little useful use case could boost in understanding and popularity would probably be having something useful that is used by people and being a show-pony of the network.
Would this be possible? Ans in addition, could we make it that it keeps hopping to the new releases of the network in the bakcground (loosing your chat history doesn’t matter. Keeping your contacts would be nice).
What would it take?
