About Sub

The journey started in April 2014 when a service called Sublevel was launched as a text-only social network. Over the past years it saw multiple changes from 256 to 512 then 640 characters. Threading saw deep changes, but in the end it mostly works the same as day one. Experimented with messages and photos, but these features were scrapped for a more tidy experience.

Use it as an app

Sub can be used as an app on any Android or iOS device: open it with Chrome or Safari then add it to the home screen. Additionally, there's a Sub for Android app that can be installed on any smartphone. Monochrome is the perfect app to browse Sub on the Mac. GNOME Web can be used to install Sub as a web app on Linux.

Donations over ads

Donating any amount of money over PayPal will get you a verified account. The amount will be stored in your account settings. Donations will make further development possible and will keep things going smoothly.
