You need https://openrepos.net/content/mistermagister/tdlib to run this app. In case of install trouble, remove depecher's tdlib_json or install it by hand, forcing overwriting files.

 

A telegram client that's superfast and super smooth. We want to make it as close to official app as possible. Forget the days of using telegram desktop or laggy crashy apps. Welcome to the future.

Yeah, a cooperation and fusion of both Yottagram and Fernschreiber would be great, so all the best functions would be brought together :) Thanks!

prably not possible

Double tap to reply is a badass feature and should be made mandatory in all other apps lol.

Mister_Magister's picture

Lol it was just random thought when thinking how to remove items from context menu. less buttons and more gestures is what sfos is about after all

I observed a weird issue a couple of times: some really old contact chats have pieces of history cut out. Once I opened a chat with one unread messages from an old buddy and saw the last message - and some super old messages from 2017 right on top of it, instead of more recent history

ehhhh i know

Apple iOS users can't play my voice notes created with Yottagram. No issues with voice notes for Telegram users under Android.

When saving a picture in Yottagram it ends up in the users home directory and not in the Pictures folder in the home directory. It can't be found by the Gallery app.

Thank you for creating a Telegram app for SailfishOS. Well done.

Mister_Magister's picture

Thats werid, both issues. I'll look into secondo ne, can't do anything im afraid about first one

Great work Michał. Fonts size change works perfectly. Thanks for your effort.

Hei!

Speaking of UX ( yeah, i'm aware it isnt a priority yet, just throwing thoughts:)), in TelegramX and in Depecher, there is this nice UX tweak that allows all messages in a chat to be "centered", did you ever noticed/ used that feature in Depecher? I think it could fit nicely as an option, considering the design identity of Yottagram...

It makes the whole chat look much more readable...

Here is what i mean: https://www.qwant.com/?q=telegram%20X&t=images&o=0:ac6a5f71e222db53626a3...

Mister_Magister's picture

full width huh, could do as option but later cause currently we have problems with current layout

lxmx's picture

The image previews are big and useful! I wish the video previews weren't pixelated.

Wow, just noticed the secret chats. Very cool.

Mister_Magister's picture

ye will fix that later

lxmx's picture

Woah, Le Grand update!! I've noticed a couple of small bugs:
- Unpinning the pinned message in a chat doesn't remove its placeholder top bar immediately. It only gets removed when leaving and re-entering the chat
- When I have 100s of unread messages in a chat, Yotti now jumps to the first unread message - this is great. But then if I want to make it to the very bottom of the list I have to press the "down arrow" scrollbar a few times to paginate through the unreads and settle on the last message

Thought i have fixed it! dang it

That down arrow on fast scroll should take you all the way down… maybe something is not right

Thank you. Waw, 1.3.1 - big update. Super.

Mister_Magister's picture

nope, 0.1.3 :D

yusssufff's picture

Thanks a lot for the v0.1.3 update! So much to deal with!

One question: Depecher has a very clever way of "auto-cleaning" the downloaded data after a few days, so that it never weight so much as an app... Did you ever look into that feature?

Greetings and Thanks!

Mister_Magister's picture

That feature is enabled but… without settings its pretty wild. I wanted to include settings for it in 0.1.4

waaait i should go in 0.2 0.3 incrementations tbh xd

yusssufff's picture

Hahaha numbers puzzle :D... well if that is a "0.", what "1." is gona be :O!

Mister_Magister's picture

1 gonna be not an alpha, i originally wanted to release it "ready" with complete feature set. When i achieve that, i'll release non alpha and focus on bufixes and improvements

yusssufff's picture

Great to know! Thanks for letting us enjoy the Alpha, its really a polished one!

Mister_Magister's picture

Yeah fernsomething situation kinda forced me into super early release hence alpha :P Don't mind me thanks for using it!

Mister_Magister's picture

I gave it unofficially and forgot to release it xd

yusssufff's picture

;D

Super cool to see all the progress! Been struggling with all the other TG options and finally there is a fresh take! A few things that would make my life easier (but not necessarily your life lol):

- Posting into channels I am an admin of - at the moment the input field is disabled

- Search in the chats list to match a part of the channel / group / user name. E.g. If the channel name is "Amiga Forever" I want to be able to find it by typing "Forever". Right now I can only find it by "Amiga"

- Forwarding a message by long pressing it - right now it's possible to Reply, Edit, Select etc. but not forward. I know the long tap menu is super long - maybe it can be a list of icons instead like in Nanofiles.

- Cover displaying the number of unread messages and the user name of the last sender

- Bigger photo / video previews - too often it's hard to guess what's inside the image without tapping into it

- Seeing the full user information by tapping on their avatar

Same issue as with deleting messages, incorrect own permissions, going to be fixed in next release (actually giving me headache right now)

"- Search in the chats list to match a part of the channel / group / user name."
search is super super basic its not even from telegram. Search will be added later

"Forwarding a message by long pressing it"
Yeah its long thats why u gotta select it first. But wait! I just got idea typing this, we got unused doubleclick gesture, we could use that for selecting!

"Cover displaying the number of unread messages and the user name of the last sender"
The first one is already done in next update (u can follow trello for upcomming changes). The latter one, hardly doable, not for now, and don't think anyone needs it really

"- Bigger photo / video previews - too often it's hard to guess what's inside the image without tapping into it"
Ye i know i've increased their size a bit in next release but will increase even more

"- Seeing the full user information by tapping on their avatar" that's another entire feature, maybe in 2 releases from now, hard to tell

yusssufff's picture

Lots of cool features coming indeed!

Trello is also a really nice way to follow your work...

One short question about the "send" icon that you induced in last update as an alternative to click the "enter" button to send a message: could the option of having "send button" disable sending the message with the "enter" keystroke? Therefore for typing it allows to use the enter key for its original typo use to make more spaces in the text...
