Kites is now on the play store at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rockolabs.kites. Thanks so much to all you guys for helping me test the app; hopefully I know have something that people can enjoy using without running into too many bugs :) 

Please do share Kites with all your friends and family.

For any of you who have friends with iOS - Kites will be coming to iOS very soon so if you know any early adopters of cool new apps like yourselves, do let me know and I will add them to the iOS beta (unfortunately iOS places are limited..)

Thanks again guys and I hope you really enjoy using it.

It's almost here! I'm just finishing up some last minute details, but have already pushed the v1 apk to the beta channel. I would appreciate if you all updated asap because there are a lot of new security features introduced which are not backwards compatible. Thanks again guys, and I will post here once the app is on the play store.

TL;DR: Rejoice! A revamped, super-sexy new kites is coming your way!

Finally.. its update time people! I'm so relieved to finally be able to share this HUGE 're-working' of kites with all of you. The app should automatically update on your devices. Unfortunately, this version is not compatible with previous versions, so your old messages will be removed (I'm very sorry for this).

What's changed? Well, the current functionality you all know and love is very 'private'. You share a kite with specific people and only they will see it. This is great, but we often want to share with the whole world (a la twitter). Now you can. 

What is 'starring'? you will notice the only addition to the current 'private' functionality is starring. This was a much needed feature which allows you to 'register' to be repeatedly notified of the same kite - it will probably make more sense once you have starred a few kites!

Why did it take so long? Unfortunately, allowing public kites meant having to remove the multiple login methods. Instead I created my own login method which will make future changes much easier.

Hey people! I've just pushed v0.80.01 to the play store so you should all be getting it soon. There are a whole bunch of bug fixes (thanks to the brilliant members of this community). This version also introduces the translations provided by members of this community. One member has even translated the app to arabic, so I have updated Kites to fully support right-to-left throughout the app. Just a reminder, if you would like to contribute to the translations, the link is below. I hope you like the new version, and please do post any comments / thoughts / general feedback, I would love to hear from you! 

Hey guys theres a big visual update coming today (you may have noticed the changed icon). Let me know what you think :)

The fix for geofencing/secret notes (0.60.01) has been uploaded and should propagate to your devices soon :)

Unfortunately kites is facing some technical difficulties regarding secret messages and geofencing (I tried to do something clever and it didn't work). There are will be an update tonight which should fix these errors..sorry for any inconveniences guys
