What is Idka?
Idka’s mission is to deliver us back to a simple place where interacting, sharing, and working is easy and ad free again.
You can share anything from photos to files; connect with friends, family and co-workers, and your data remains private. Idka will not share your data. You control the sharing.
Idka combines functionality that is otherwise spread across several services – all integrated in a super simple and efficient user experience.
Idka has all the usual social platform functionality, and then some. It is easy to post, chat, converse, upload and store text, pictures videos and other materials. Available on the web as well as on iOS and Android mobile platforms. Use Groups to organize topics, activities and projects and use Circles to easily share with groups of people.
The storage function is truly unique and integrated into the social features. If you create a group, you have also created a unique storage attached to that group. No need for Dropbox or any complicated “add-on” cloud service. If you have a contact, you also have a unique storage in common with the contact.
There are no public addresses in Idka, which means you cannot find Idka users in Google/Bing or other searches.
Everything on Idka can be edited or deleted, content as well as chats and posts. Delete means real delete. All unwanted information will be removed from our servers and are gone forever.
A private chat, or a post chat cannot be extended by anyone to include other people. A group can be open, closed or hidden.
The service was shut down in 2020: https://www.idka.com/important-announcement-from-idka/
