As a user you are free to remain completely anonymous or, alternatively, you can give yourself a unique user ID. You also decide for yourself how close others must be in order to see their messages.
Find instant messaging boring? Struggling to reach people? All fresh chat clients are slow to start with, that's why I added map markers called Broadcasts. Broadcasts let you post a semi-permanent message on the global map for anyone else to see. Why not mark that spot where your bike was stolen? Or the place where you met your partner?
Finally, Catena is currently in Beta stage. This means that the client is completely free but still in testing. Please give me plenty of bug reports, but no whining!
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy Catena!

- The screen no longer sleeps when the chat is open
- A new Menu button has been added that lets you advertise your Hashtag. The message is shown to all users without a Hashtag, when they long click the message it gives them a quick button to join.
