By Telegram LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Pure instant messaging — simple, fast, secure, and synced across all your devices. Over 100 million active users in two and a half years.
FAST: Telegram is the fastest messaging app on the market, connecting people via a unique, distributed network of data centers around the globe.
SYNCED: You can access your messages from all your devices at once. Start typing on your phone and finish the message from your tablet or laptop. Never lose your data again.
UNLIMITED: You can send media and files, without any limits on their type and size. Your entire chat history will require no disk space on your device, and will be securely stored in the Telegram cloud for as long as you need it.
SECURE: We made it our mission to provide the best security combined with ease of use. Everything on Telegram, including chats, groups, media, etc. is encrypted using a combination of 256-bit symmetric AES encryption, 2048-bit RSA encryption, and Diffie–Hellman secure key exchange.
POWERFUL: You can create group chats for up to 30,000 members, share large videos, documents of any type (.DOC, .MP3, .ZIP, etc.), and even set up bots for specific tasks. It's the perfect tool for hosting online communities and coordinating teamwork.
RELIABLE: Built to deliver your messages in the minimum bytes possible, Telegram is the most reliable messaging system ever made. It works even on the weakest mobile connections.
FUN: Telegram has powerful photo and video editing tools and an open sticker/GIF platform to cater to all your expressive needs.
SIMPLE: While providing an unprecedented array of features, we are taking great care to keep the interface clean. With its minimalist design, Telegram is lean and easy to use.
100% FREE & NO ADS: Telegram is free and will always be free. We are not going to sell ads or introduce subscription fees.
PRIVATE: We take your privacy seriously and will never give third parties access to your data.
For those interested in maximum privacy, Telegram offers Secret Chats. Secret Chat messages can be programmed to self-destruct automatically from both participating devices. This way you can send all types of disappearing content — messages, photos, videos, and even files. Secret Chats use end-to-end encryption to ensure that a message can only be read by its intended recipient.
We keep expanding the boundaries of what you can do with a messaging app. Don’t wait years for older messengers to catch up with Telegram — join the revolution today.

Okay, perhaps by now it should work with iOS11...
Telegram has been a messaging service that is very light, quick, yet full of useful features such as mentioning — and most of all, completely free without disturbing adds and other privacy concerns.
Yet even with the latest update, this app still has a number of glitches on the iOS 11. Some are crucial — like if you open the app as slide over on an iPad with hardware keyboard attached, the input field will be hidden beneath the keyboard shortcut UI, making it very hard to type correctly.
Besides all the issues I’m having, this still is my favorite messaging service yet, and really hope to see it fully optimized for iOS — possibly with support for drag-and-drop and VoiceOver — as soon as possible.
It’s a great app but it is kind of inconvenient on how we can see if some read our messages we sent especially when in a group chat. But this app is also super convenient when dealing with large groups and teams. So all in all it’s amazing but that is my only complaint about the app.
Why back gesture is removed in last version?
I like it very much and use it everyday. It has good speed in sending and recieving messages and very good performance. My problem with last version is that they have removed back gesture and make it very hard to go back to main menu. I hope it is a bug and will be resolved soon.
