Replacement apps in development
« on: November 01, 2021, 02:11:25 PM »
Hi,

I wanted to share some information about some apps that are being developed by the community in preparation for the ChastiKey shutdown. I've been calling them replacement apps, but they all have their own visions on how their app should work, including their own app/brand name, so they aren't really replacing ChastiKey, but will be alternatives you can move to once ChastiKey is shutdown early next year.

There are 4 apps that I'm aware of being developed. I will update this post/thread once I have more news about each of the apps, or hear about a new one being developed. Where possible I've provided a discord link. I'd recommend joining some or all for the apps that interest you so that you can keep up to date with news from those teams, and the more users available to test things might help them squash bugs before they go properly live with each.

Aside from the 4 new apps there are of course apps/sites that have been around for a while that you may want to check out as well. I personally don't have much or any experience with them so I've asked the developers of those to send through a description about their service. I will add more sites once I receive back something from those relevant teams.


Chastilock
This is the one that plans to be the closest to ChastiKey in their first release with most or all of the same features and lock types. It’s not available for testing yet, but it may be within the next month or so. It will be available on iOS and Android, and there may also be a web version available too (I may have that wrong).

The code is also opensource so if you’re a programmer and want to help you can find information on how to on their discord

Discord: https://discord.gg/SgzFvSxc5z
Twitter: Chastilock


TheLockBoxApp
This is going to be a PWA (Progressive Web App) designed for use on desktop and mobile devices; there will also be a Discord Bot (Marvin) that will support the majority of functions available within the App.

You can register, update your profile and create locks though locks cannot be loaded/used yet. The menu system for creating locks with their discord bot is quite smart. You can create locks and update your profile with the discord bot, and via their web app.

You can keep up to date with their progress on their Discord Server.

ChastiSafe
This is currently the only one that is in a useable state with a lot of features and functionality available. This has two ways of running and managing locks:
  • via the Discord bot which is all command based. This was the first that was introduced and worked well.
  • via a web app. This is the newest that has been introduced but gets bug fixes and features added almost daily. The UI needs a lot of work, but it's in early development, and I believe the developer is just getting everything needed on the screen (and working) before looking at making it prettier.

Both let you run card/variable, and fixed locks. It uses the same card mechanics (and colours) as ChastiKey, but has an extra 'Stun' card. The stun card is a freeze that also resets accumulated chances.

The lock creation is a little different from ChastiKey, because you have to create a keyholder lock to be able to load it as a self/solo lock, but otherwise the settings/options are pretty much the same.

You can manage locks as a keyholder but I haven’t tested the keyholder side of things so I have no experience with it.

The developer has introduced two bots that can manage your lock: Tiffany and Hector. Hector being the newest was recently introduced with a feature that lets you play a game of hangman on the discord server, and depending on how well you do the bot will add or remove stickies. While the reward/punishment balance seems a bit off at the moment, it's a very cool feature, and will be interesting to see how the bots are developed over time, and what else the bots can do in the future. Being a self/solo locker myself I'm most excited to see what the different replacement apps do with the bots.

Discord: https://discord.gg/hruPKYDPea


ChastiLife
This is a web app for use on desktop and mobile.

It has fixed, and variable locks that can be created by lockees, and keyholders. You can also add different games to the lock like ChastiKey cards, conflips, and guess the number with more to come.

Planned features are bot locks, combination pictures, leaderboards, and API integration.

The app is not yet ready to be tested publicly but early stages have been tested by a small number of people. I tested it a while ago and it had a unique/cool feature that isn't in ChastiKey!

There's no specific discord for this app yet, but like the other apps, once I have more news I will update you here.


EmlaLock / TeamLocked
I don't have any experience with either of these apps, but I know EmlaLock has been around for longer than ChastiKey. I've put the two together because one of the developers of EmlaLock told me that EmlaLock now owns TeamLocked. Here's an overview/description of the two I was sent (verbatim)

Quote
EmlaLock provides a huge amount of settings a lockee or a keyholder can specify to set up a session. The session does not have to be a chastity session it can also be a bondage session or else. Each session can have public session links, different timer options, session modes (fixed duration, fixed dates, record breaking etc.). The games for sessions are blackjack, a fully configurabole wheel of fortune (where holders and wearers can define what happens on each pie) as well as a public voting (for users that are in a session) and a public pillory. Session settings can be saved and loaded from templates as well as shared. EmlaLock user accounts can also be linked to Discord to expand the functionality of the site with the discord bot. Wearers and holders can offer sessions through the site as well as search for a matching session to adopt one.

While EmlaLock have a small message system, TeamLocked provides a profile where wearers and holders can represent themselfes. TeamLocked has a forum, a chastity calendar an active community and a few games. Until version 3 of EmlaLock, TeamLocked stays a standalone website.

One extra thing I want to add is that they were recently discussing/considering transferring ChastiKey data/stats over to their service, so that may be something that they can offer in the near future.

Chaster
This is another app that I haven't used myself so I'm providing the description/overview given to me by one of the developers.

Quote
Chaster is a keyholding web application for chastity wearers and keyholders. With Chaster, explore a new chastity experience with custom time-based locks and join new adventures made for you. Lock yourself in chastity in one of the hundreds of locks created by the community, or create your own custom lock.

Extensions are the core of the Chaster application and allow infinite customization: games, tasks, punishments, or random events. You can combine multiple extensions to customize your session and create your own chastity experience!

As a keyholder, you have full control over the sessions of your chastity wearers. Add or remove time to their sessions, give them tasks or punishments, and create new challenges for your wearers with extensions.

ChastiSafe now has a very rough around the edges web interface where you can create, manage, and load locks. It has almost all of the same functionality as the discord bot.

I've updated the original post above with URLs, and social accounts for each (where available)

TheLockBoxApp have now released phase 3 of their beta test, but due to unforseen technical issues over the weekend they had to withhold some functionality.

The ability to create and load fixed locks in the app is now available alongside setting a user profile. Locks cannot be unlocked yet, so it is recommended by the developers not to lock your keys away until that capability is released.

The link for their app/website can be found in the first post above on this thread.

Just a little bump to mention that I've updated the ChastiSafe description in the original post with the current progress, and a brief overview of one of the new bots introduced.

I've added another app to the list above that has been running for a long time, and that most are probably already aware of: EmlaLock.

Good morning Kevin.  I hope you can assist me.
I lost my CK software via a computer glitsch earlier this year and am now trying to re-establish my account.  I do have my account key, which I had kept diarised elsewhere.

I find I am now unable to reload chastikey - the log in screen opens but will not accept any entries at all in the account code area. I'm sure this must be down to your imminent shutdowm of CK.  Are you able to please help me to reload the account until your cutoff dates?  I'm not sure if this message channel is private so I have not provided the account number here, but can do so via any private messaging you could suggest.

I have set up Chastisafe in the meantime and it seems to work reasonably well already.  I would however love to get back to Chastikey to capture all existing account history, etc.

Can you assist?
