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.
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.
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.

Our primary target are the most common mobile Platforms from Android and Apple/iOS . The App is meant work “on the go”, and is mobile-first.

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.

Modern Tech Stack
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:
Tasks and ToDo-List manager — to organise your activities
Vault — for sharing passwords and other secrets safely
Polling and Votes — too coordinate meetings and positions
Cobudgeting — to coordinate what money should be spent on
