Annoying disappearing text box 2/5
The chat/ text box disappears on my 7+. I always have to back out of the app for it to re-appear. It's really frustrating. I see there is still not a fix for this yet. My patience is wearing thin.
Things to add 4/5
By dominik gronnn
The app isn't bad just like any other messaging app but these things should definitely be included:
1. Add the time for each message when it was sent and also a read receipt for when the last read message was read
2. A like option for any message or picture
3. A way to view all the pictures/media in like a gallery or a list view (rather than have to scroll through the entire conversation to find a picture), along with the ability to swipe between pictures
4. A way to select multiple messages to delete certain ones within the chat
5. Add gifs and other new text features other than just emojis
I got most of these ideas from other apps like groupme and WhatsApp which have most of these features. If signal had these features it would be just as good as those apps. Otherwise not a bad app.
Getting there 3/5
By Matty Ice Ice
Would like to see a lock or password screen to access messages. Also, I would like to be able to customize an alert sound.
Needs a few updates 4/5
1. Share sheet support.
2. Group calls.
3. The ability to send Signal messages while on a Signal audio call.
4. The ability to use the back camera on video calls.
5. The ability to see how much data was used on an audio and video call.
Love cool swag 5/5
Pretty dope. Super lit.
Great app 5/5
I want to share to Signal!!! 4/5
Please please please add Signal to the share sheet so I can share directly to Signal without having to copy and paste or save first.
Seems like the best app for privacy with end to end encryption. The entire app is open source, so anyone can see exactly what it does. Most, if not all of the other privacy apps are not fully open source. That is, either the entire app is not open source or only part of it is, like WhatsApp for example.
No notifications 3/5
It's ok. Biggest complaint is that with the new updates it no longer provides a notification when a message is received. Which is annoying
Quality App 3/5
App has close to all the features of iMessage and Kik.. a deal breaker is that you don't have read receipts. NEED TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO KNOW WHEN OTHER PERSON READS MY MESSAGE TO HAVE HIGHER RATING. But overall, quality app.
Bug report and feature inquiry 4/5
This is an excitant app but I’m using this as more of a bug report and feature inquiry since I don’t see mechanisms for that in the store.
In the latest build, 2.16.0 clicking hyperlinks in received messages seems to no longer open automatically in Safari on iOS 11 on iPhone 6s.
The latest update greeted me with some pop up messages about setting up a profile I could share with my picture. Sharing and profiles seem antithetical to a secure messaging protocol. I don’t understand why I should trust this sort of thing when the only reason I use Signal is for totally encrypted messaging.
Immediately crashes on iOS 8 3/5
I can't open it at all.
Please please please enable touchID so that the app can’t be opened without my fingerprint.
Great service+Secure 4/5
I LOVE this app! But I am experiencing sporadic glitches where I don't see texts being sent to me or the other person complains of not seeing my texts- otherwise very good private way to communicate.
I will give Signal four stars because I like the fact that it's data is encrypted and that it won't store personal contacts info on its servers....a good messenger for private comms.
Does not rotate with iPad Air 2 running iOS 11 1/5
App is huge and stuck in portrait mode only. Does not rotate.
Excellent messenger 5/5
By Gala Vant 989
Best messaging app out there. Shame more people don't use it.
Great simple app 5/5
By bayou skydog
Appreciate a straightforward interface and functional simplicity.
Switched to Signal after wickr changed 4/5
Like signal a lot. Please make a security option to log in with fingerprint or pw.
*FEATURE* Serious privacy issues... 1/5
• Still requires contacts access to match a unique-to-you identifier
• Still requires your phone number & then they match a hashed UNIQUE-to-you version to network effect their egos.
—Why? Because the app dev is in bed w Facebook by accepting money from fb & fb's other co they use to make shareholders (their REAL customers) rich, WhatsApp.
•They accept $ from secret us govt entities.
•They also send your traffic through google servers bc they say it helps so people won't get blocked but you trust google, right?
What's all this about you wonder? Well it's bc it's not about WHAT you say but WHO you say it to. & WHEN you say it.
Your social graph & unencryted metadata. Look it up.
WIRE app does not require contacts or phone #.
XMPP servers do not as well & are further decentralized.
but yea, your selfies are safe, signaling sheeple.

Relieved to know about this Ap! 5/5
Very satisfied and have recommended it several times. Thank goodness for Signal!
Favorite Communication App 5/5
This is amazing… encrypted, easy to use, self destructing messages, its perfect!
Approved for use in the US Senate. Snowden personally uses it. Electronic Frontier Foundation approves of it highly.
Requests: iPad app, and ability to text while in a call (crucial)
Amazing call quality 5/5
Can't comment on security features as I'm not an expert in that but one thing is sure for me: this app delivers noticeably better call quality then WhatsApp, Facebook or any other app I've ever tried! Unbelievable right? It just blew my expectations out of the window. Even if You take the security features away now, it will still be my go to app for messaging and calling
Appreciate app! 5/5
Was of great use at protest for communicating and coordinating response.
Works as advertised
Excellent Product 5/5
By Georgia Tech Fan
Easy to use and a great App.
Would be 5 stars but 1/5
By mr mr
The keypad to enter your phone number blocks the link to login, now I can't login without making a new account. Fix this please!
What product and company can you really Trust these days? Signal has been a great solid product and after trying other messaging apps, I am sticking with Signal. It is such a relief to know this app will be developed honestly.
Love this!!! 5/5
It's probably the best app out there for privacy purposes. I'm obsessed 🙂 highly recommend!
Great security 5/5
Due to the nature of my job I have to be careful what I text to other people. This app allowes me to send and receive what I need while keeping my job safe. Recommend to other coworkers so we can say what we need to and still keep our jobs.

By Valli G
Great tool for so many
By anon eligius
I enjoy communication free from the fear of retribution or metadata dumping into NSA thinthread packet trace, via some overreaching 1984ish' violation of privacy against peaceful "citizens"of the country by people i know and a plethora more unnamed have died to defend.
Thank you whisper systems
