Known Issues: receiving a message from an unknown contact is not properly managed, as a work around you can read the message from the official client and add the contact to your contact list.

Use this work around to avoid repeated notifications of this message.



First release with basic functions:

At the moment only text message for chat and group chat are enabled

By default, clicking on the notification do not open chat page but brings to the conversation page, from settings you can change the behavior

From the pulley menu of the page settings you can restore the connection if you need to

It's possible to create a new group chat

From the shortcut on the right, in the cover page, you can switch online/offline mode

fixes: error on open chat and duplicate messages

Deinstallation does not work properly. App icon disappears, however the notifications continue. Please fix this!

Testing this now :)

Thesix's picture

First test: fail - replies to my messages are not displayed.
Second test: fail - conversation history is not visible.

So far this is not a solution :(

There is much to do to make it useable yet:
- A daemon to reveive messages like sailorgram,
- channels,
- !!!proxy settings!!!,
- voice calls.

Proxy is a must to stay connected when main servers are blocked.

Hello, I'm having troubles setting up jollagram. I'm not getting the code after I enter my phone number and name. This may be an issue on my side, but last time I was setting up a Telegram client (on a BlackBerry), I was getting the code via two different ways (SMS and a different client) at the same time. Could it be that jollagram asks for the code in some bad way? Thanks!

v_podzimek's picture

I just tried the official Android client (from F-Droid) and it works fine with my account -- I get a login code and I can login just fine. However, once quit it does't run in background so I'm not getting any notifications. Maybe they changed the authentication API? I'd really love to switch to Jollagram if possible!

Hello, installed Jollagram for the first time on my Jolla 1 with Sailfish OS, then want to log in but after I typed in the 5-digit code, received from Desktop app already running, I don't know how to proceed. Pressing Enter key does nothing, pulley menu only shows "Send sms code" but I already got the code.

What to do?


There's a typo under the line where you enter the code: code recived


Pohli's picture

Argh, forget it. I chose that Send sms code option and it worked but the name "Send sms code" is a bit irritating. Code doesn't always come per sms.

Works like a charm on SailfishOS - Intex Aqua Fish. Thx + Donation to keep up the good work.

Completely unusable since it does not support 2nd factor password, which cannot be disabled.

subeditor's picture
  1. I installed new SIM recently, re-installed Jollagram, but app still uses my old account. Is there any way to change account?
  2. None of the items in the pulley menu of contact screen is available - I can't share, block and so on.
eisen's picture

iam using, can´t receive anything, no text, no pics. i only can send text...

greets andré

subeditor's picture

The same problem - only text messages are available.

koshir's picture

Do you plan to implement secret chats?

And loading previous conversations from the cloud?

hobarrera's picture

"You are using an outdated app that doesn't support 2-step verification. Please update your app to log into Telegram".

Regrettably, I can't even log in. The "2-factor" is in reality a mere password,

many thanks for the native app. just installed on my new jolla. sending messages works fine, but i dont receive replies. any suggestions?


spidernik84's picture

I have the very same problem: I see contacts online, I see them typing, they receive my messages but I don't receive theirs.
Is there a log or debug mode?

Galaham's picture

I've got the same problem. It seems that everytime 3G turns to 2G or to Wi-Fi, I'm not able to receive messages anymore. I have to go to the settings and select "return connection" and I can receive messages again. Only the ones that were sent when the connection was lost, I won't receive at all.

I think that the app should connect automatically to the network everytime the network changes from one to another. 

joba's picture

hmmm, dont get messages even if i stay in the same network/connection type. i get the notice ' typing' but the message itself doesnt appear

Galaham's picture

Did you try "reconnect" from the settings-> pulley menu? It does the trick for me.

joba's picture

...tried, but reconnect didnt work for me, 1 contact works - sometimes - 2 others dont hmm?

marco73f's picture

I'm investigating the problem,

I hope to solve it quickly, if needed I will prepare a version with more log to find the bug

joba's picture

thanks, good work so far :-)

Hello Ari. You can add emojis via an emoji-ready keyboard. One of them is Dolphin and you can find it here in openrepos.

spidernik84's picture

Hello Marco, thanks for all your efforts and for the great work. It's nice to see more native applications coming!

I was wondering if you had any plan to open source it or, at least, to put up an issue tracker on github. I'm sure there's plenty of us willing to contribute with some feedback or coding help.
I think the github issue tracker would be more suitable than providing bugs here in the comments.

Playing SMS tone when receiving a message is an annoying bug.

marco73f's picture

It is one of the first things I want to solve ;)
