WhatsRemoved+ - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

No, we are two young boys who met at the university studying electronic engineering and started programming as a hobby. Until, by surprise, one of our apps, WhatsRemoved, was downloaded and liked so much. In the end, this is what motivates you to continue learning.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The most complicated part was having the idea, then, of course, we added more interesting functions and the better design that we could develop. But the original idea was very simple; so simple that, soon, many alternatives from other developers came out in the Google Play. Right now, if you search, you can find at least 100 apps that do exactly the same as ours (or so they say), but we are the first, and in my humble opinion, the best.

Xurxo, along with one of his university mates, developed WhatsRemoved as a hobby. He is an Industrial electronic engineer by profession and a music and technology enthusiast in general.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

My favorite apps and surely the ones I use the most are really the ones we have developed ourselves since they have been perfectly adapted to our needs.
As for third-party applications that can't be missing from my phone, Google’s are the ones. They have invested a lot of time in their personal assistant and that is showing. Google Maps and Google Translator are also very important. And of course, One app I have since the beginning of Android is Nova Launcher. There are plenty of reasons to recommend it and its developers have constantly innovated to improve it even more. It is without a doubt in the app that anyone thinks when hearing the words launcher and customization.

How long have you been working on this app?

3 years.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

WhatsApp had recently launched the ability to remove messages from its application. As users, every time someone deleted us a message, it made us curious, and not just us. It was the solution to this problem that led us to create WhatsRemoved.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

As I mentioned earlier, we were the first to develop the functionality. We've been working on the application for a few years now and have never stopped developing features and releasing new versions. But without a doubt, what I'm most proud of in this application is that we've never used any of the user data for anything other than detecting deleted messages, which some of our competitors can't claim.

All data analysis is done on the user phone, we never uploaded anything to the internet in any way (It's very easy to check). I like to think that I treat users the way I would like to be treated by other developers.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

It's important for us to listen to our users, so we don't hesitate to incorporate the functions they ask for, within our possibilities and without losing the essence of the app. Innovating and improving continuously is what has brought us to where we are today. WhatsRemoved already has many interesting features and now, the most important thing for us is to polish its look. That will be our next challenge.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Try the application; there is no better test of its operation than using it. If you really use WhatsApp and have an Android phone, you should have WhatsRemoved+. This is the must-have tool.


About App:

WhatsRemoved+ is an application that allows you to monitor notifications and folders in the pursuit of changes and deleted files so you never miss anything in your favorite messaging applications. WhatsRemoved+ uses the technology developed for < b>WhatsRemoved, removed from the Google Play Store for violating WhatsApp's terms of service.

While the original application was focused solely on detecting deleted messages from WhatsApp, we have expanded our sights to reach all messaging applications and even beyond. During the installation, you can select the applications and folders that you want to monitor as long as don’t violate its terms of service.

If the application detects a change in a notification or deleting a message, it will notify you so you can know what happened, either by a deleted message, by a file deleted, or by some application showing important information. As with WhatsRemoved, WhatsRemoved+ does not send your information to external servers, they’re only on your own phone. WhatsRemoved + will also not save all notifications, only those whose applications you manually select. We have created a configurable installation tool and a lot of learning algorithms that allow you to adapt to the needs of each user, saving only what you really need.


> Scan folders looking for deleted files.
> A window for viewing all deleted messages.
> Easy to configure.
> Save a history of the notifications you choose.
> Detects changes in notifications and notifies you of this.
> A tab for each application with notification history.
> System of search by groups of notifications.
> Learning algorithms for a more precise and simple installation.
