It could be very unlikely that you’re using Matrix to message others, but it’s a nice little decentralised and end-to-end encrypted way of messaging friends and family. Two key things I look for in a messenger service.

I run my own Matrix server because I’m apparently a nerd. This means if you have a Matrix account too, you can message me on – but you need an app to do so.

(If I know you in person and you want to give it a try, get in touch and I’ll hook you up with an account on my server)

There are many apps that you can use to sign into your Matrix account and one of those apps is Cinny. It’s for your computer/laptop, rather than your phone, and you can run the app directly in your web browser.

Cinny describes itself as being “a pleasant experience because the overall look” and that’s pretty much it in a nutshell. The app isn’t doing anything special – it offers many, or even less features, than other Matrix apps – but what it does, it does well.

And that’s everything. All I have to tell you today is that Cinny is a small, useful app offering a clean and simple messaging experience.
