The following description comes from the Google Play Store description of the app:Like many other group chat programs, Musubi lets you send text, voice, and pictures to groups of friends.
But Musubi has a (growing) family of fun mobile apps:
1) Sketch: Don't just say what you want, draw it!
2) Picsay: You can click a picture, put a mustache on your friend, return, and voila, it is shared!
3) Wordplay: Play word games with 2-4 friends -- the only game of its kind that is free and has no ads, forever!
4) Ebento: Invite your friends to a party and keep track of who is coming.
5) TodoBento: Keep a todo list right in your feed with your friends.
This is a free app--so does it upload my private data? Not at all.
Our research lab at Stanford figured out how to use mobile phones to let users have fun and privacy at the same time.
