  • c-toxcore

    The future of online communications.

    It links to a bug report discussion where one of the developers states that they don't understand the security properties of tox very well[1].

    I find that worrying.

    Jami client for terminal

    I think is a better solution and has a working mobile client.

  • qTox

    qTox is a chat, voice, video, and file transfer IM client using the encrypted peer-to-peer Tox protocol.
