Kickass Apps

Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow: be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash.

— Bruce Lee


SHADO is a free secure instant messaging Android app that protects your privacy by obfuscating your conversations and making them impenetrable to prying eyes.

In an age where every word or photo you share leaves a trail on the World Wide Web which affects your public image, SHADO gives you the opportunity to talk about certain topics, to reveal secrets or share strictly confidential information without fear of being tracked and your reputation tarnished.

Messages and snapshots are neither stored on your smartphone nor on our servers and they self-delete after a timeout established by you. No one can steal or track your data, neither spyware nor evil third party apps.

By using a new open encryption protocol for safeguarding real-time communications over an insecure channel, all messages and photos become unreadable before being sent over the network. This makes SHADO a secure digital space where you can talk with your mates freely.

SHADO is a social app too: your conversations are organized by topics shared with other users. Moreover, an automatic reputation system helps you keeping trolls away.



We are a very small team of passionate developers, writers and artists who aim at creating kickass apps for Android users.

Indeed, our name is a funny 2.0 japan-styled fusion of a Tuscan slang expression which means kickass stuff.

In 2012 Keganzo won a competition call on the ROP LAZIO ESF 2007/2013 public fund for the creation of new businesses and raised a free grant of almost 90K euro.

In 2013 we raised about 45K euro more for our start-up from family and friends and our team has grown to include new members and collaborators.

Keganzo is registered as Innovative Start-Up on the Italian Business Register since 2014.

We are really mad about Android and we are always in quest of intriguing ideas to make them real by bits and bitmaps!
