Kik gets SSL encryption, bug fixes
Kik Messenger for WP7 has received its first update, bringing it to version 1.1. While the patch does not bring any major new user-facing features to the table, it does resolve a couple of significant bugs that were present in the initial release. The most noteworthy addition to v1.1 is SSL encryption. If you'll recall, IT specialist, Mike Cardwell, reported that though passwords were encrypted within Kik, messages themselves were sent in plain text. The developers later added SSL encryption in Android, Blackberry and iOS, but upon launching Kik for WP7, SSL remained absent.
The other fix worth mentioning is a resolution to the ".co.uk bug." Users trying to register on Kik for WP7 using an email address ending with ".co.uk" were unable to do so. A workaround was quickly found, but it's nice to know that it is no longer needed.
Kik is a great messaging app that's gotten that much better, so check it out here.
