Scrambls Protects Twitter Posts With New iPhone App

Privacy and Security for Every Tweet: Control Who Can Read or Archives Messages With Scrambls

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 31, 2012) - Today scrambls launched scrambls social, a new app for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod® touch that extends the power of scrambls private communications on Twitter™. With the new scrambls social app, simply tap tweets you want to be scrambld and they are instantly encrypted before being sent to the cloud. Only the selected group of friends you define at scrambls.com will be able to read your posts.

Scrambls social for iOS devices extends the power of scrambls on mobile devices, where so many of us make the bulk of our posts and status updates. Scrambls is a free service that lets you control your social media, manage your online privacy, and decide who to share with. Gain lasting control for everything written and shared online by choosing exactly who can see your posts. Your friends just need the scrambls app or browser plug-in, and they'll read what you've written in clear text. You can even change your mind after posting to effectively delete a post, by switching the groups or individuals permitted to read that post.

"Twitter users can now choose to scramble posts directly on their iPhone to communicate only with specific groups of friends. The general public is shielded from reading sensitive or private messages," said Michael Sprague, scrambls co-creator. "The unique features that scrambls introduces to this ecosystem empowers micro-control over the content we create in social networks, in a manner that's as simple as defining a friends list."

The Twitter app for iPhone extends scrambls' commitment to the mobile marketplace. Android users can already download scrambls as a plug-in for the Mozilla® Firefox® browser -- for use with Twitter and all the most popular social media sites. While the desktop/laptop scrambls service works across popular social media sites by means of a simple and secure plug-in for the leading web browsers, mobile devices require dedicated applications for each communication service. The scrambls development team will continue to bring mobile advancements to market, along with other new scrambls features that make online sharing even more simple, safe and convenient.

Build scrambls Into Your Next App:
App developers and social media providers can augment the privacy and security of their own applications and services with scrambls. A software developer kit (SDK) enables third-party apps and sites to integrate directly with scrambls. Native applications are provided to enable developer partners to rapidly build their own scrambls-enabled apps.

"The new scrambls social app demonstrates the simple yet powerful control users gain by scrambling Tweets on their iPhone," added Sprague. "We'll continue to enhance scrambls social over the coming months, but we hope to see the app development community adopt our SDK to easily add similar features of message security to their own app solutions."
