    Confide Brings Its Enterprise Ephemeral Messaging App To Android

    <img width="680" height="544" src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/confide-wanding.jpg?w=680" class="attachment-large wp-post-image" alt="confide wanding" />&nbsp;There was just one problem with Confide -- for the last several months since launch, the app was only available on iPhone. Which means that if you wanted to have your conversations disappear with someone using an Android phone, you'd have to do it the old-fashioned way and actually just call them. That ends today, as Confide has just launched an app for Android phones. <a href="http://techcrunch.com/2014/04/24/confide-android/?ncid=rss">Read More</a><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?a=ciylQ0VgFWg:PkrVR-fKabo:2mJPEYqXBVI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?d=2mJPEYqXBVI" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?a=ciylQ0VgFWg:PkrVR-fKabo:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?a=ciylQ0VgFWg:PkrVR-fKabo:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?a=ciylQ0VgFWg:PkrVR-fKabo:-BTjWOF_DHI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?i=ciylQ0VgFWg:PkrVR-fKabo:-BTjWOF_DHI" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?a=ciylQ0VgFWg:PkrVR-fKabo:D7DqB2pKExk"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?i=ciylQ0VgFWg:PkrVR-fKabo:D7DqB2pKExk" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?a=ciylQ0VgFWg:PkrVR-fKabo:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Techcrunch?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Techcrunch/~4/ciylQ0VgFWg" height="1" width="1"/>
