A 15-year-old grade 9 student from Karachi Syed Nabeel Haider, has developed an instant messaging app with features ranging from voice calling to group creation, channel creation, and features for the vision impaired. The student claims that the app is even more advanced than WhatsApp, and it took him 3 years to get it done.

The app also offers a “secret chat” option, enabling the users to set the chats to auto-delete and encryption similar to WhatsApp. 15-year-old boy from Karachi develops Android app for instant messaging .

 The 15-year-old Nabeel was visited by the JDC foundation’s Zafar Abbas, who revealed that the student’s father is currently unemployed and makes his earning by selling food items in the nearby areas. Haider comes from a family that is currently suffering with financial issues. 

Haider began working on it when he was in class 7. He reveals that the app’s development took him a longer duration due to his laptop’s low performance, which he had bought for Rs.10,000.

My father worked really hard to manage savings for me to buy the laptop, but its inefficiency increased the duration of the app’s development”

Haider said, Unfortunately, the app is only available for android users as of now. However, he will soon be working on making this amazing app available for all Apple users as well. Due to money issues, Haider was initially unable to upload the app to the Google app store.

“I didn’t have the means to pay the Google fee for the app’s inclusion to the Google store, but one of my well-wishers offered to sponsor me, after which I was successful in uploading it.”

In addition to this, FF meeting allows you to send the same message to 500,000 people simultaneously. Users can also send videos and files of 5 Gb without the quality being compromised. Not only this but the number of people you can create a group with is also numerous (200,000 people).
