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

Thanks I got it working I installed telegram on my mac and then tried on jollagram.

daveinuk's picture

I added a lengthy comment the other day and it didn't get published? I've installed the app', my phones up to date, it's the latest version etc etc - I can't so much as add a number, regardless of what format i try, I had an activation code, but can't use the app' at all, I'd like to get away from whatsapp, and android app's but at this rate I can't, any help please? Tried reinstalling, same deal. . . . . . . .

Installing Android Telegram syncs all the telegram clients registred to that number, at least i figured it out, so you can have your mobile contacts on PC for example, and i just discovered it works with Jollagram too! So for now we can save some time adding all the contacts by this way.
Really looking forward some improvements in this app, great job so far!

PS anche tu italiano? manteniamo alto l'orgoglio nazionale ;)

Awesome work, thanks for that!

It worked perfectly for me for a few days, but since today, the application is crashing as soon as I launch it.

I changed nothing, any hint on what I could do?

Keep it up!


cartron's picture

ok, got some more details: it appears Jollagram crashes only when I open a specific conversation, with some unread messages (36, as I read them on my Linux desktop).

The other conversations open just fine.

How to proceed?

cartron's picture

replying to myself, as Marko emailed me directly: removing the directory /home/nemo/.local/share/harbour-jollagram/avatars fixed the issue.

Just stop Jollagram before removing it, then open it again, and it's all fixed :)


@Marko: thanks again, awesome work!!!

Is it possible to add all contacts from the simcard? or do I have to add all my contacts by writing their phonenumber in the app?

When a friend tried to send a message to me ( befor he was added ) I could not see what number it was from, and I was no able to reply to it.

Best regards.

Hi Lillemor,

at the time, contact management is very limited.

I hope to add new features with the next updates.


Lillemor's picture

ok sounds good.

thanks for the app!

When do secret chats get supported? That's the main reason we should Telegram and now it's not very useful...

pablo1602's picture

Thanks a lot for your work.

Count on me for translation to Spanish or Chinese.

Best regards.

javiermon's picture

Do you have to add contacts one by one? Can you add an option to add contacts searching from the phone in bulk mode?



tvicol's picture

Slehtonen85's picture

vimana's picture

deiv's picture

i cannot connect and i don't recive the sms code

vimana's picture

Hello, did you remember to put the prefix before your number?


deiv's picture

here what i forgot! XD

thanks dude

marco73f's picture

Sorry for bugs in this version, but I was hoping to release the app later this year.

The problem of duplicate messages should occur for messages received and not yet read at the time of reconnection.
If this is the problem, I'm working on it.

@Jordi in the future some help for translations will be appreciated

vimana's picture

I can not receive the text message with the code




ok my fault, I forgot to put the international prefix.

Jordi's picture

Waow! Thanks for your work!

Any possibility to assist in the translation of this program? I will happily do the French one.

Ray_Ven's picture

Thank you very much! We were really looking forward for jollagram! Please open source it though!

rcastrogiovanni's picture

That's great, i was bored of using the Android version.

@Buschtrommel I tried to create a group and it worked, are you sure you are connected?

Thanks marco73f that's a good beginning



Buschtrommel's picture

Yes. I can receive messages. But if I click on a group or a contact, nothing happens.

marco73f's picture

could you explain the problem?
when you receive a message:
in the main view, is there a chat with a message to be read?
can you open the chat?
opening the chat, are there messages received?
sorry but I did not understand what happened :(

vimana's picture

I can not:

- Open existing chat
- Create new chat
- Receive messages

For now it is useless. :(

when I do "tap" on a contact, nothing happens.

Slehtonen85's picture

I do receive messages, everything else is same for me.

vimana's picture

the same

Slehtonen85's picture

Same here too.
