Product Progress

The Effektio App Platform is under heavy development. While this page tries to go give a rough overview of the different aspects of the product and where we stand in terms of building them, this is neither comprehensive nor final. For the detailed progress, please always look at the specific tasks and their status on our Github Effektio Development Dashboard.

Messaging

A key aspect of effektio is the combination of casual news consumption – we are used from casual social media – and diving deeper into the specific community. As such, the opening screen, even if not logged in, is a casual, highly visual News-Stream consisting of the most important Updates of the Groups and Teams the user belongs to or follows. Allowing to easily flip through the latest updates on the way to work or to the next event, allows them to catch up quickly on what is important and current without spending too much time digging through endless chat conversations.

Infrastructure

End-to-End Encrypted

With the Five-Eyes watching over us, End-2-End encryption has never been more important than now. But why do the Apps only offer this for direct interpersonal messaging? Why not have the entire App communication encrypted?

Effektio builds all its Data Model upon End-2-End-Encrypted messaging. We, nor any server relaying your message, will ever know what you’ve discussed or named the specific ToDo. It’s all yours, and yours only.

Decentralized

Matrix is a federated decentralized Network of Homeservers serving their specific communities, interconnected with one another, as well as bridged to the outisde world of WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, etc.

This network of homeserver holds the latest messages and can receive and share events even without you being online. Matrix has federation at the heart of the protocol, so whether you run your own or use our public server, there is no difference to the network.

Social-Media Integration

No network is a silo and neither is effektio. Especially for reaching out, existing Social Media Networks and communication channels are highly important.

Effektio aims for a tight integration with other networks by sharing news right from as well as receiving direct message in the app, accepting support requests via email or from the website chat, right in the same app you use with the rest of your community.

Multi-Device-Capability

The modern user wants to use their apps from the mobile phone as well as on their laptop and iPad, have them sync up automatically and share their latest viewed state. This is notoriously hard for end-to-end-encryption scenarios as every device needs to be included in the encryption scheme.

Thanks to olm and mega-olm and device-verification standards, none of that is a problem for effektio. It even allows you to continue using your current matrix client and effektio at the same time.

Sticky Notes

Stop creating “Pinned Posts”, that no one reads. Instead Effektio offers a convient “Frequently Asked” section for its users – right after News, when they want to digg in deeper. There Group Admins can post anything that needs to be accessible out of context, with a title and WYSIWYG visual editor and searched quickly by full-text-search or tag. Users can, of course, like and discuss all posts, give feedback and provide further help. Perfect to store links to the most important documents and resources, details about the upcoming event or contact details – just one button click away for the users.

Effektio Core—Extensible platform for dWeb Application Development

The core of effektio is built on top of Matrix extensible events as a platform for decentralised Web Apps itself. All Effektio Apps specs will be released as an open standard under a Free Software license.

The effektio SDK will allow anyone to build good looking, decentralized WebApps for all platforms easily.

More Apps

Once the infrastrucutre is ready, we can built any number of Apps on top of this shared end-2-end-encrypted effektio platform. Among others we are planning:
