Places is on Mac and Windows now!

Dear supporters of privacy, 
thank you for all your feedbacks during this first week of the alpha on Mac. Windows people, this release is for you! Now you can use Places and help us with your feedbacks.

Before going through the details on this release, we want to share with you that Places has been shortlisted among the finalists of the Adyen Global Challenge at Techcrunch Disrupt in San Francisco this week. It was really cool and hopefully, just a beginning!

Hereafter you will find some details of this release such as the rules of the alpha, the fixed bugs, the new features and also get some news on what the team is working on for next week. Finally, you will find a little “how to” section, explaining what to do with the downloaded zip file. This week again, we hope that you will use Places a lot, with lots of people around you!

Places for Windows
Places for Mac OS
The rules of the alpha : 
  • Unlimited messages
  • 10 Gb of storage per user
  • 1 Gb max per file
  • You are free to invite people around you. Spread the word all around you. We need testers!!
  • The account is for testing, so it’s temporary. It will be deleted after. As you will have your original version of your files on your machine, nothing will be lost.
  • For Mac OS only for the moment. Windows will come withins days.
  • Use to report bugs.
  • Spread the word within your networks about Places. Please, click on the links below.

- remove a contact and add him back is ok.
- removing a contact from a place is ok.
- conversation is disabled if a contact has been removed form your contact list.
- offline mode is more stable.
- the contact name was missing on some conversation notifications. It's fixed. 

New features  
- the search bar is now functional for contacts and places.
- group conversations are available. 
- Places is available on Windows.

Mood from the lab
The release of the next week should contain Linux distros and visio conference... Yep!!! ;-)

How to
For Windows. Download the Windows file. Copy the zip file somewhere appropriate. Unzip the file. Clic on the “.exe” file. Don’t be afraid about the warning messages telling you the application is not secure. It’s safe and we will fix that later.

For Mac OS. You should take care of deleting the previous “” directory before starting. Then download and copy the zip file somewhere appropriate (i.e. not the "Download" repository). Unzip the file. Launch "" as you did before (take care that the file is not for example).

We keep in touch with @PlacesByAnsamb!
Thank you very much to be with us,
