Review from James Ciesla
So far so good, didn't pick up the txt code during setup so had to wait for the call which was annoying. Otherwise fine, no issues.
Signal is a great app of course and some of the best encryption you can get. Downsides are that it is centralized (which does make it easier), and the app now is very full featured and so requires a lot of permissions. A light version that needs fewer permissions would be nice
Interesting app. Love the encryption, but "crystal-clear voice or video calls" doesnt happen... They're staticy. I have a LG v20 so not a cheap phone by any means. I call people that also have expensive phones and it is not nearly as clear as just using regular data to make my call so that is why 4 out of 5 stars
I don't get the few bad reviews about this. I've used it for over 2 years now and have had zero problems with it across a few different phones. Love it. I only use it with other friends that have Signal though. Use my regular app for normal SMS. Maybe that's the difference?
I mostly loved this app but crashes are happening constantly. I'll just finish a long message and it #@!! crashes right before I'm about to send! I'll return when you fix this. Suggestion: backup the message as it's being written so it can be restored if there's a crash.
Signal is a very good no-nonsense app and has replaced the default messaging on my android OS phone. The only reason I rate it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the app constantly nags you to invite your contacts to use Signal. This popup bar comes back even after being dismissed and it is really annoying. An option to disable this feature or only ask once would greatly enhance the usability of this app. It seems like an oversight that should have already been addressed...
Used to love this app but now it just crashes constantly. Unuseable. Over one year later it's still hot garbage that barely works half the time.
Changes in 4.13.6:
★ Fifty-six new emoji are now available. Signal supports Unicode 10.0 and Emoji 5.0. Is your friend walking through a mall food court? Ask them for a pretzel using one character instead of seven.
★ We made the search bar more visible so that it is less difficult to find. The poetry of this action was not lost on us.
★ Answer or reject incoming calls by swiping up or down. You can still answer a call the old way by holding your phone sideways when it rings.
