Send Messages Without Internet or a Cell Service with TinCan

TinCan

Most messaging services these days use your cell service or the Internet. But if you find yourself in a place with fluctuating signals and no Internet, then an alternative you can consider is TinCan. It’s an app that lets you send messages to other TinCan users who are within WiFi range, which is about 100 feet.

So how does it work?

Cryptstagram Lets You Send Encrypted Messages Hidden in Glitch Images

Crypstagram

They say a picture speaks a thousand words, but sometimes, you don’t need that many. The quote implies figurative words, but there’s a way for you to literally insert text into an image–without having it appear as mere text–by concealing the words into glitch images. The image sharing site that lets you do this is called Cryptstagram, which was set up by ad agency The Barbarian Group.

Basically, all you’ll have to do is upload an image and add a message. The site does the rest by “encrypting” your message into the image. It even allows you to protect your image/message with a password for good measure. The resulting images can be shared via the site or saved to your computer, if you prefer to send it in some other way. Recipients of Cryptstagrams can then visit the site to decrypt their messages.
