Of course, I set up notifications to behave like SMS. I'll create a custom type for notifications in next release and handle notification sound.

lkdhf's picture

I think it would make more sense to make this use the IM notification sound (it's an IM application after all and generates way more notifications than SMS), then everyone can just change their IM tone to whatever they want.

BlackSailer's picture

In version 0.2 Utilized IM notifications

Bocephus's picture

That's the way to do it, yes. Sailorgram also utilises IM notifications.

sdiconov's picture

It also crashes on Jolla C running OS It failed at the "sending request" stage right after getting sms code. Now crashes at start.

explit's picture

For me it works just fine on Xperia X

X Compact - Depecher crashing at start

Bocephus's picture

How difficult would adding call functionality be...? None of the Sailfish Telegram alternatives have ever been able to provide that.

BlackSailer's picture

Tdlib supports calls and secret chats, imho calls is useful but should be implemented at last, after main functionality works.

Bocephus's picture

Call functionality is very useful, but I agree other main functions have priority.

Sailfishman's picture

Runs perfect on Xperia X and Oneplus One!

explit's picture

Just works. Thank you!

carmenfdezb's picture

Nice! Thanks for sharing !! Could you build for i486 too?

BlackSailer's picture

There is problem with building tdlib. I will work on that too.

carmenfdezb's picture

Thanks! :)

ferlanero's picture

Depecher is working just fine in my Sony Xperia X. Thanks a lot!

HackTheFish's picture

It works fine with Jolla 1! So great!

japsi's picture

Got same problem as ingvix. I am using Xperia X, maybe that is the main problem..

Ingvix's picture

I can't seem to start the app. I could start it for the first time and authenticate successfully but then it crashed and then it just started crashing at start. I realized I was missing the tdlibjson but even after installing it the app crashes at start.

Also it would be smarter to use the openrepos page of the tdlibjson rather than direct download link so you could install it in storeman as the direct link opens in browser.

EDIT: Even smarter would be to add tdlibjson as a requirement in the spec of the package so it would install it automatically.

BlackSailer's picture

Tdlibjson is added as dependency.

Edit summary in openrepos as tou suggest.

Xperia X users have some trouble with app, I try to locate a problem

ROZZ's picture

Good work! Thank you for proxy setting. Login menu works very strangely though, it will be on "Sending request" until you won't swipe to the left

MIG's picture

It's great that there is activity for Telegram!

I was not able to get it working. I disabled two-factor authentication for testing, still I could not connect.

Looking forward for updates.

MIG's picture

I was not able to start Depecher by using menu item. Starting from command line seems to work fine. Lots of warnings are printed during use. Edit: Jollafied Intex Aqua Fish in use

cizi's picture

Doesn't work at all. Installed, trying to run it and the application crashes...

Sailbook's picture

It works perfect on my Jolla C...

eson's picture

tdlibjson is already in the depecher package. You don't need to install it separately.

pisarz1958's picture

It's nice to see another Telegram client for SFOS. I don't seem to be able to log into the app though. I'm just stuck on this screen with "Sending request..." button grayed out.

Sailbook's picture

Thanks !

claustn's picture

Finally something new for Telegram! I'll try it soon :)
