Don't get me wrong. I want a small simple and secure communication app for everyone. What i was trying to say is: mobile devices should stay offline as long as possible. Problem: how can you send a message to a device being offline, without waiting for it to come online? Big companies have central servers. We don't want central servers, so we have to create our own decentralized servers. This could be combined with storage of messages on trusted friends. Then only a few people would have to run a 24/7 node.
