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.

The best by a mile


How ppl can complain about this app is way beyond me. I have tried EVERYTHING ELSE there is when it comes to texting apps, and telegram x or telegram is the best, faster and more reliable than any of its competitors. The functions it brings to lite are a one of a kind and customer service, if you ever need it, is spot on. Believe me I have tried to find fault with this app and there aren't any to be found. In this reviewers opinion telegram x and its sister are the very best texting apps the world has to offer. Even iMessage takes a back seat to these. The devs are to be congratulated on their efforts to bring these to us. Keep up the awesome work guys. I'm sticking with you.
