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

Such a great update. Everything works so much better and I can actually put the Android app away (only keep it to upload media files for now). Thank you for that beautiful work!

AlexE's picture

Thank you for the update!

slaveriq's picture

It seems to crash on downloding pictures and it refuses to stop downloading them.

marco73f's picture

I hope that the version 0.1.6-4 solve the problem

pilsL0ve's picture

it works now, good work. app doesnt get history?

marco73f's picture

at the time, the update of the conversation is limited to the last days

pilsL0ve's picture

unusable for me. crashes every startup

BillyHalley's picture

I did a fresh install of the app and now is collecting ALL my old messages and never stops crashing, untill it will have downloaded allof it, the app is unusable, maybe you could put a limit to the old messages downloaded, and add a "Load older messages" option
I know the next update will be released soon, but i needed to report it, since i don't know if this is already fixed :)

Badevil's picture

+1 please fix as it is not usable currently.

Please provide notification sound even if app isn't running.

This feature is crucial !!!

megger75's picture

Hangs often. I wait for a stable Telegram App. At the Moment i work with Telegram for Android- but wait for the native stable App. Nevertheless, the developer many thanks for the work.

blizzz's picture

Hi marco73f,

first thank you for the app! Messengers are needed on SailfishOS :)

My question now is, since there are no dates next to the release/version information, is the app still in development/maintenance? Also, i don't see any licence information, and it seems sources are not publicly available.  I would appreciate a statement on it, too.


Juhia's picture

How can I remove this app?

boebbele's picture

The app hangs and crashes very often.

tmulhearn's picture

Is it possible to change the sms tone ? 

Also does the app need to run for notifications to work. When the app is closed, notifications dont seem to come through for me.

tvicol's picture

It works OK ower wifi, but does not connect over 3G.

rcastrogiovanni's picture

Hi tvicol,

I use it with mobile data (3G/4g) and it works fine, are you sure you are connected?



forgrimm's picture

Under what license is jollagram? Do you plan to publish it (later) on github or somewhere else?

Thurem's picture

It would be nice if the app could be used in landscape mode.

Great app! Keep up the good work!

carmenluci's picture

Thank you for your app, it works fine. It would be very nice if it was possible to send messages with enter key.

marco73f's picture

In the next release you'll be able to change the behaviour of enter key from settings

Bysmyyr's picture

One interesting bug more: if you have picture last received message, jollagram will receive it again and again and peep if you have read it.

tvicol's picture

As soon I start Jollagram and get connected the application hangs and exit.

This is not happen if I stay offline.

yuvraaj's picture

Version 0.1.4.

I understand that on first start Jollagram pulls all the past messages and therefore it will be slow.
In my case on first start, Jollagram pegs the CPU and I can see with top that it starts consuming more and more memory until it passes the high water mark and the OOM killer kills Jollagram.
Since Jollagram hasn't finished its initial sync, when I start it again, it goes through the same problems:
CPU pegged, memory usage balloons, OOM killer intervenes, Jollagram dead. :(

Result: With this update, Jollagram is completely unusable for me.

Do you have some code that is attempting to collect the entire QNetworkReply into a single QByteArray? That's usually how I've screwed up in my code.

Bysmyyr's picture

I had same problem but unistall, remove configuration files, reinstall fixed that

yuvraaj's picture

I did uninstall, remove config files, re registered with Telegram. Now instead of latest messages close to Nov 14th, I see latest messages close to Jan 1st.
Jollagram still pegs CPU and gets killed bby OOM killer.

Whats more fun is that sometimes OOM killer will kill other apps (eg media player) when I start Jollagram.

yuvraaj's picture

No more OOM kill! Yay!
Works much better probably because jollagram doesn't seem to be pulling all of history into the app.


Dead_Horse_Riding's picture

Very interesting, because whole family use it on dektop under Linux (telegram, pidgin, cutegram) Windows (...) and webogram in Browsers.

But hardly use it on N9 in meefox, do not intend to buy jolla phone for telegram.
