Disa – one for all, all for one.
There is certain logic in the emergence of messaging apps like Disa. However, multi-protocol IMs can hardly surprise anyone – we all remember the similar Miranda app.
For the purposes of my job, my phone is full of messaging apps. Each of them contains my friend lists, correspondence, files. An opportunity to bring all of it together in one app is like manna from heaven.
WhatsApp, Viber, and Telegram, all running simultaneously, will hardly make your battery last long. This is the first advantage Disa offers: One app – one process.
The developer claims that Disa will not use much of your battery.
So far, you can connect to it WhatsApp (through a plugin), Facebook and SMS. Telegram will be available to add in the near future. You can also specify a certain colour for each of the services to see which app the message is coming to.
Disa has been for sale in Play Market since 17 February, so be prepared for constant updates – the “Beta” prefix is the explanation. For iOS, the website says, “Coming soon”. Well, time will show how soon it will actually be.
