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

Great update! Didn't test it yet for other media files, but at least photos are definitly received, awesome :D

However when I text someone using another application(eg laptop client), the message will be fetched from telegram und displayed as message from the contact, not mine.
Other than that, message fetching works pretty good.


Would it be possible to fetch some kind of contact retrievement? When I text contacts of mine which are not saved in the People app, it only displays their number, no names etc.

Thanks for this app, but I must tell you the Swedish translation is full of misspellings and grammatical errors.

There really should be some kind of translator quality check, at Transifex.



BillyHalley's picture

I'm not sure media are received, and if i write a message, let's say on the pc (i'm using cutegram, but this is not relevant), to someone, i recive the message on jollagram as the other person sent it to me

BillyHalley's picture

Wow! Huge update! Thanks a lot, i will try the new features :)

boebbele's picture

Will there be an update?

Please put it on github. Then someone can help you to make the app better.

asgeirr's picture

Many thanks for a native app. Are you planning to put it on to allow for collaboration? I might hack on a feature in my spare time.

neubauten84's picture

Hi there!!
I deleted my account after upgrading and now I can't re-register..I can receive message from telegram with the code but after that registration goes on saying connecting..
What can I do to solve that??

neubauten84's picture

Don't know how..reeboting and retrying registration solved!!

Demir's picture

We also want to MeeGo version.thank you

vimana's picture

For several days the app closes every time I want to open a chat.

I tried deleting the app and install it again, same problem.


boebbele's picture

Thank you this great app!

Please please pleas go on... :-)

My Problems: On my phone this app stop often and that leads to not receiving messages, It would be great to be able to send and receive photos/files.

By the way: on my Desktop PC (linux with KDE) I use cutegram (a Telegram client in qt). Works great!


calderon's picture

nice app, thank you. is it possible to get secret chat option?

olpe's picture

Hi. Nice progress. I think we need a daemon for this. On my phone the OOM killer kills this app quite often and that leads to not receiving messages. Otherwise thanks for this app.

Great App

excellent app (y)
A couple of essential features requests (not complaining, just requesting :) ):
1 when typing a message too long, the send button goes off screen. would help if the send button remains at the bottom of the message, like in text messages interface.
2 Sometimes when I'm typing a message, I have to go back and read another conversation and return to the message. On such occasions, the message isnt saved. Would help if it would be retained so I can resume editing.
3 It is a known bug that the app sometimes loses connection/goes offline though it shows as connected. My problem is that on such occasions, if I send a message, it remains unsent even after connections resumes. It would help if the message remains queued and can be sent once the connection resumes.
4 as a corollary, would help if there is a feature to select messages once sent and copy them (or delete). This helps in forwards as well as resending failed messages.

A last request which is more for convenience.
Like I said, the app sometimes goes offline/loses connection. I usually go to settings and "go offline" and "Restore connection" in such instances. Would help if you provide this as a cover option alongwith "Show online/offline" so a user who wants to can choose this one.
again, excellent app and excellent work, thanks bro (y)

I appreciate your comments, I'll keep them in mind for future versions.
Thanks for your support;)

vimana's picture

Excellent upgrade.

It would be fantastic to be able to send and receive photos/files and the creation of secret chat.

rolfa's picture

jollagram works fine, thanks!

Do you have a roadmap for new features, e.g. secure chats?

​What about releasing the source code would be nice to help in developing the app?

ari_jarvio's picture

I have say to you Marco: Thank you and I appreciate that you wrote thanks message to updating information. So we can see that you care about helpers. Keep working this good work!

Kindest regards: ari.jarvio


Ja tiedoksi suomenkielisille käyttäjille: jos näette oikeasti virheen/virheitä Jollagrammin suomennoksessa, jos ollaan satuttu suomentamaan johonkin kohtaan väärin, voitte tosiaan kirjoittaa vaikkapa tänne kommenteihin, niin minä tai muu suomentaja korjaa asian. Tosiaan, talkootyöllä kaikki kääntäjät ollaan käännetty.

I wanted the app to display status "online" only when it was open, and "offline" when minimized in the Home Screen

so I edited the qmls in usr/share/.....

I added in the CoverPage.qml inside the CoverBackground this piece of code:

    onStatusChanged: {
        if (status == PageStatus.Active) {
            mainWindow.onlineStatus = false
        if (status == PageStatus.Inactive) {
            mainWindow.onlineStatus = true

and also in the harbour-jollagram.qml i set the onlineStatus as False at beginning and deleted the line onlinestatus = true in the onConnected box(or onAuthenticated, i don't remember :/), because if i had the status offline and the phone lost connection and then reconnected, the status changed to online and i didn't like it.

I don't really know what's going on here, i know only a bit of programming, but it works, so i hope it could help, or at least make a suggestion ;)


marco73f's picture

ok thanks for your advice, in the next update online/offline behaviour will be reworked

Juhia's picture

I don't get announcement from new message unless the app is open. Can this be changed that I get them also when the app is not running? There is also problem sending/and receiving messages quite alot, I see just one green tag after sending message, and the receiver doesn't get it at all, even we both are online. I must reconnect and send again. This makes the app useless to me, because I'm not sure that did my messages go through, or has someone sent me one. This would be a great app otherwise, and I'm sure that these things will be fixed, big thanks to developer so far :)

Installed the client and do not have a sim card so I'm usung the number of another phone for the registration. Once registered, if I send a message from jollagram, I see it on my other phone and when I reply from my other phone, I do not see the message on the jolla. Is this correct? Also, when I send the message, the message has a yellow question mark next to it as opposed to the green checkmark. 


lkdhf's picture

Would be great if the source code were available. Why else would anyone use this over another proprietary service?

deiv's picture

you may also take a look at sigram and cutegram to take cues and various ideas ;)
