Your are right, but my point was that these communications are not automatically "logged" somewhere the NSA can peruse at their liesure.

Government could still eavesdrop with local equipment. Of course apps could be using their own encryption. Potentially though this might be a way to avoid a government attempt to close down communications.

Who need to pay carriers when you can communicate peer-to-peer in a state-of-the-art IBM mesh network. Perfect for weather information when the Internet and cell tower are down, but also a way to transmit without being eavesdropped by government agencies.
