    I used my google voice app # instead of my phone to get the verification code and got it but ebuddy won't recognize it. How do you sign up if you can't manually enter the verification code?

      As far as I know, the verification must be done via SMS. But, a Google Voice number should theoretically work - if you've received the verification code it should work. Perhaps it's started an account for you for the Google Voice number, but on your phone you need to start a new one with your phone number.

    Well, if you are concerned about security, you may want to read the privacy policy on their website before you download the app - in particular the part that says, " A copy of your phone address book will be transmitted to and stored on our servers and used to
    provide you and other users with Suggested Contacts" :(

    so... how is this any different from whatsapp, which has been around for quite some time now ?

      This uses secure connection so you won't be vulnerable to man in the middle attacks, and i think Whatsapp doesn't use a secure connection. So this is win for me.
      and it looks better.
