Status (SNT), is a smartphone platform that brings decentralized messaging, applications, browsing, and an Ether wallet to Android and iOS devices. The platform purposefully resembles an instant messaging app, as they are the most used type of application (people spend 1/3 of time using IM apps).
The blockchain industry is well known for creating new and innovative products that eliminate the need for intermediaries. The Status application runs a transaction-ready Ethereum node. Users get to enjoy the safety and privacy of the Ethereum blockchain and can access various dapps.
One problem that Status solves is the availability of fully decentralized apps on mobile phones. Their collaboration with Swarm, and use of the Whisper module allow their users to get complete access to decentralized apps directly on their cell phone.
