Happy to share with you an update on one of our smaller projects. We had
a team interested in updating this effort from a few years ago, and here
is the great result. Pixelknot is an Android application that allows
users to hide short text-based messages in photographs and share them
across trusted channels.

"Have a secret that you want to share? Why not hide it in a picture?
With PixelKnot, only your friends with the secret password can unlock
your special message. Everyone else just sees a pretty picture. It’s a
fun and easy way to share hidden messages without anyone knowing. Take
those pixels, twist them in a knot, and see for yourself!"

If you are asking yourself, what's the point of this app? Well, whenever
someone brings up that even using encryption can be a flag to
surveillance overloads, at least we have one answer to that. It is also
a great way to hide sensitive data on your own phone, inbox, or cloud
drive, right in plain site.

I am also pleased that the app fits in our "2MB Apps Rule" category,
along with Checkey, Location Privacy, Ripple (I think?), OpenArchive,
and the soon to be released ProofMode!
