Some bug fixes, remaining bugs and new bugs!

The latest updates were very good and they included some good bug fixes and now we have a faster and more efficient telegram X but unfortunately still sometimes the application goes black (or white) and not responding... another thing is that rarely you can not see the back button and you have to close the app from app switcher and reload it cuz its the only way..
And at the end, we have two good options in previous updates which are removed in the latest updates!
1. Now you can not refer as easy as before to unread messages just by tapping on the “chat” button and you have to scroll down on chat boxes to find them!
2. We used to tap on the top side of the iPhone X to easily go to the very first messages in a chat box before, but now by tapping on the top you just refer to a few messages ago!


Have a delay for updates

This this is the best messenger app I have used. but it’s have a problem; the developers don’t release updates in a exact period of time! Like google apps! So it has lots of bugs! For example when we want to send audio message app is doesn’t work so I have to close my app and reopen it again, Or in telegram when somebody Send us a forwarded message; In the right side of the message has the little circle to sand and forward the message to others Or save in the saved message. This feature is very useful so I hope to use this feature in Telegram X.
I hope these problems solve as soon as possible and we can get updates immediately.
Although one of the best feature on this app is working very better of proxy than working them on telegram, because of this feature I use Telegram X.
Thanks for developers of this app


I'b done with X

Though everywhere you hear that X version has smoother and faster animation, I would say it's not in my phone (iPhoneSE).
I agree animations are playing faster, but anywhere that a animation plays you see jump/lag and frame rate drop. Even when you swipe a chat (in the main list) the buttons appear with sudden movement, and not smooth AT ALL. In case of moving back and forth between chats and the list of chats I frequently see white screen appears on the edges of the screen, looks like a rendering issue in the end of animation.
Moreover, as a RTL (Persian) user, the text are aligned to left in the chat bubble which looks ugly and weird (this problem doesn't exist in the original Telegram)
I'm a Telegram fan, I will. Telegram is the best by far, but I'm back to the original version and keep my eyes on the future updates for X, hoping for some improvement.
