The journey started in April 2014 when Sublevel was launched as a text-only social network after multiple attempts to create a public service. Over the past years Subcafe evolved to what you see today.

The text limit was increased from 256 to 512 then 640 characters. Threading saw deep changes, but in the end it mostly works the same as day one with additon of a few JavaScript enhancements. We experimented with messages and photos, but photos were scrapped for a more tidy experience.

Use it as an app

Subcafe app can found on Google Play Store and it can be installed on any Android smartphone. Additionally, Subcafe 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.

Monochrome is the perfect app to browse Subcafe on the Mac. GNOME Web can be used to install Subcafe as a web app on Linux. And lastly, Subcafe will feel right at home on Chrome OS.
