endless connecting :(

Telegram servers are under DDoS attack, I have the same issue.

Is not related to the client

gorguiheld's picture

I cannot register, I receive the code but I cannot log in. Is it also because of the attack?

Dax's picture

If you refer to the Sign Up procedure, It's a known issue and will be fixed in 0.7!

Reported Here:

PawelSpoon's picture

Great Job . Those features that are there are perfectly realiable!

Jordi's picture

Great work! Thanks for that.

Eagerly waiting for the next steps of the roadmap.

It's so nice to see how good and serious vision you have and how enthusiastic you are with SailorGram (Telegram). I give you 5 stars with pleasure. We Jolla users deserve high quality applications, not only joking apps, and I see that you think exactly same way by making first exelent WebPirate and then this. I appreciate your good attitude. Keep going your good working.
Dax's picture

Thanks! :))

claustn's picture

maaa, non è che avresti voglia di fare un porting per Meego Harmattan? :)

Dax's picture


Mi è stato chiesto via mail svariate volte da quando ho rilasciato l'app.
Purtroppo non ho mai sviluppato su MeeGo e non saprei come fare, inoltre non ho un telefono dove posso fare i test.

Se qualcuno vuole utilizzare il codice di SailorGram ed adattarlo a MeeGo (non dovrebbe essere difficile) io gli do tutto il supporto necessario :)

Quasar's picture

After entering activation code "Sign Up" is still inactive)) Did anybode try to register via SailorGram?

Dax's picture

It's an untested feature (I don't have a spare phone number to register at the moment), I will fix it in 0.7

Thanks for reporting and sorry for the issue!

Quasar's picture

Thank you for the app)

faiden's picture

If this is going to be as good as Webpirate we are going to have a great app..

However Im stuck at waiting for that sms containing the activation and can't move from the screen.

Dax's picture

I don't know why, but if you have Telegram for Android or the Desktop version, the activaction code will be sent there.

However I will add a button in order to resend the activaction code (sometimes, very rarely, Telegram replies with an error code and the activation procedure must be repeated) :)

Please, let me know if you are registering an account using the application, because this feature is untested! :)

Well done Dax. You managed to release a lightweight and functional Telegram client in two weeks, hats off! :)

I hope you can implement the daemon side soon and ideally the encryption part. At this stage I can't ask you more, it's functional and stable in its basic form for me.


Dax's picture

The daemon is planned! :)
I can implement it for 0.7, but I don't promise anything.

Currently, the (ideal) roadmap for 0.7 is:

  1. Complete Group Management (started in 0.6)
  2. Complete Media Management with Audio/Video and polish the implementation (the current one is a bit ugly for my taste)
  3. Begin the work with Secret Chats
  4. Profile Management?


PS: Italiano? :O

spidernik84's picture

Ah, it's probably just me asking for the daemon so soon! Sailfish can multitask well, we can survive.

Your roadmap is great.
Out of curiosity: is there any connection health check or auto-reconnect to Telegram services? Today I could not send or receive messages. I had to close the application and open it again and it immediately received the messages (the queued outgoing ones disappeared, though, and were never received by the other side). I put the phone in airplane mode last night and at work I have a pretty unstable wifi, maybe it had something to do with it. 

Keep up the great work!

PS: sì ;)


Dax's picture

Mmmmh, I have looked Cutegram's library source code, and yes, it seems that there is some function/signal related to the connection status, I will add it in 0.7!

PS: Ah bene :D

Henuka's picture

Looking great!

1 more android app to get rid off. Option to send from "Enter" would make it even better :)

Dax's picture

Ok, I will be available it in the next version :)

gri4994's picture

can you use white font on cover instead of green?

Dax's picture

Sure! :)

alina's picture

I like the colors, because they help me to get the status just in a glance. But I think a center-aligned multi-lined text will be more beautiful; something like what Whatsup is using:

Whatsup cover

boebbele's picture

You're awesome! After a long wait a Telegramapp which is promising.

I hope you come forward quickly :-) Because Jollagram still not working well for me.

alina's picture

Wow, I didn't expect the new release this soon! Great! Thanks again!

An annoying minor bug is to display user IDs instead of my saved names for contacts.

Dax's picture

Usually I release 0.x series rather quickly :)

About your issue: I will fix it in 0.7, thanks for reporting!
