What about WhatsApp!!!

webfork on 2016-09-05 15:13

@Realist: I haven't tested it because, unlike Isotoxin, WhatsApp is only out for Win8 and higher, closed source, and and is owned by Facebook. Their Wikipedia page lists some other concerns.

@Realist - Just go to web.whatsapp.com. Their "app" is just a wrapper for that.

Portability may be lost after update- re-enable it from "Settings" - "Advanced" - "Make Tox portable".

CornHolio: That's really something for the forums.

JohnTHaller on 2016-02-18 00:44

The publisher seems to have pulled the new release and is serving the 11.0.53254 release from December for both standard and portable downloads even though the main download page still shows 11.0.55321 as the current version.

Gets worse with every update. Locks up and freezes half the time when trying to use emoticons.

josannesalvaleon on 2016-02-15 01:23

Great app! I use this regularly for my language classes.

webfork on 2017-03-21 01:30

I'm having a lot of problems with this program on Win7x64. It won't minimize, it won't close unless you do an "End Task" in Task Manager, and it doesn't remember me between sessions. Anyone else having issues?
