qaul – قول

The Arabic characters قول translate to “word”, “speech”, “text”.

qaul is an internet independent wifi communication app. Communicate with others nearby without internet connection or communication infrastructure.

You can see nearby users automatically, send messages to all of them, create chat groups, send end-to-end encrypted chat messages, pictures and documents.

Communicate from device to device on your local wifi network or via the wifi hotspot created by your phone.
