#Peerio offers secure storage and secure messaging

author of cryptocat and minilock Nadim Kobeissi has created a new security application called Peerio. Peerio combines secure messaging, file sharing and storage.
Peerio lets you send messages, share files, and store documents online — securely and privately. Free cloud storage keeps your files online and ready to send from anywhere. It’s as easy to use as e-mail, but with a significant additional layer of security — end-to-end encryption.
