Telegram app: simple, secure, self-destructing messaging

There are a lot of messaging apps that I have tried using and for some reason, things just go crashing down. It’s either too slow, gimmicky, too buggy or no one is just there. Now, out of curiosity, I tried out this new thing called Telegram which allows a lot of privacy options with fast services all in a very simple interface and it is indeed very promising.

Messaging apps have been at war now for quite awhile and I have to say that it has been very chaotic. Right now, I have BBM, Skype, Line, an abandoned Viber, Hangouts and probably more that I forgot about already – everything has been lacking. With Telegram, I got the things that I am looking for:

  • It’s really simple.
  • No ads!
  • Ability to set delete timer for messages.
  • Safe and secure from hacks.
  • It’s free.
  • Really fast and not irritating to use.

It’s available on both iOS and Android for downloads. So far, the only thing that holds the app back for me is its amount of users here in the PH (it’s already topping the charts in other places around the world). At the moment, I only have one contact which is a huge problem for something called a messaging app – but I think with the right features and capabilities, users are not far away. To have a good idea of what I’m talking about, download it now here and here for iOS and Android respectively.

    Weird, it says my Globe number is invalid. LOL!

  3. What should you do with your tablet — or phone, for that matter — that is in
    this same situation. One aspect of this new
    model that is very nice is the blue colour of the
    new device which makes a change from the black finish that many manufacturers tend to favour.
    Recently Android device manufacturers have released devices that go beyond our wildest dreams.
