Badevil's picture

Hi Dax,

can you please also release your app for Tablet (i486)?

Dax's picture



Currently, I don't have a Jolla Tablet, so I don't know if the interface is scaled correctly, I can test the app in the emulator only.

Badevil's picture


it is working well.

Dax's picture

Great! :)

Getmantsev's picture

The audiomessage is not played. The program generates a message: "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in".

Dax's picture

Known issue.
It depends on Sailfish, some codecs are missing :(

Getmantsev's picture

Dax, the necessary codecs can be installed from the OpenRepos?

Dax's picture

If you have Sailfish 1.1.7, search for "Ultimate Codec Pack"

If you have 1.1.9, see:

Getmantsev's picture

Thank you!

I would like to use this great app too! Thou every it stop at "registration". The app seems to connect but the error log give me error 400 and 401, the app doesnt recognise my phonenumber. Telesail and android app works fine but both are clumsy. I have deleted the app and reinstalled multipletimes and tried restarting Jolla. What now?

Dax's picture

Did you have tried to reset SailorGram by deleting the folder named "harbour-sailorgram" located in /home/nemo/.local/share ?

The next version should fix all known login issues :)

yennu's picture

Now it started working! Thanks a lot!

SaimenSays's picture


I've installed your app. But I can't use it, because ehere are no contacts displayed. Contact list is empty. What I'm doing wrong or is it a bug because of new SFOS 1.1.7?

Unable to connect, force close after tapping login again
error log is empty
what should I do with this?

Dax's picture

Reset the application by deleting /home/nemo/.local/share/harbour-sailorgram

I'm developing a dedicated Telegram library for SailorGram so I can get rid of the bugged Cutegram libraries and it will be available in the next version.

This new library should solve all known issues, included the login ones :)

alina's picture

Wow! Good luck!

gri4994's picture

thanks, this worked!
can't wait for the new version available!

alina's picture

When can all Jolla users get this app thru Jolla Store? Please consider this too in the roadmap. :)

Good luck!

Dax's picture

If I implement the background service, this application will never be allowed in the Jolla Store (at least until they decide what to do with services) :(

gri4994's picture

What about 2 versions: w/ background notifications for openrepos and without for harbour?

alina's picture

Oh, damn it! :( However I personally can tolerate if the app send notifications only while the app is running.

koshir's picture

I vote for background service too :)

richdb's picture

Just got my Jolla phone and really needed an app like this :)

Keep up the good work!

ferlanero's picture

Thank you very much for this gold-piece of software!

It'll be posible to add sticker-emoticon support in the future?

Thank you very much again for your hard work!

Dax's picture

Yes, it's in the roadmap!

ferlanero's picture

Wow! You are a hero. This is and it'll be for a long time the best instant message app in Sailfish OS.

I donate you to keep the good work. Therefore if I can help the development in any order, please ask for it.

Good luck!

alina's picture

It's getting better and better with each release.

Maybe it's time to solve known notification issues or to add support for reply/forward. ;) I feel like a kid crying for more. :D

Dax's picture

It should be easy to fix/implement those two requests! :)

gri4994's picture


thanks Dax!
