Works with all numbers including VoIP 5/5
By Elliot Westwood Hollister
I’m glad there exists a messaging app that focuses on privacy and security like this. Signal works internationally with VoIP as well as standard cell and landline phone numbers. Runs very smooth so far. I’ll be trying to convince more friends to use this app.
Was great- then ok - now total failure 1/5
Has trouble starting on my phone now. Used to start with a list of my contacts and a keyboard, so I could get going. Now, no keyboard, just a blank page. Only way to actually use it is to force a restart. Then it’s ok
Updated- nope nothing. App starts and then does nothing at all. Even a dump and reload doesn’t fix anymore. Too bad, it was a good app for a while.
Look elsewhere ... soma?
Wish it had an app for the Apple Watch!
Thank you very muchhh you enhance your app and make it better than before I changed my review to five stars because it deserves that
One thing will make the app great if you add username feature which is give the ability to send and receive messages without knowing phone number
Unable to make calls 1/5
I made calls a bunch of times but cants hear anything. Same with my friends too..
The best messaging app I've used 5/5
Signal is just AMAZING! Privacy eccentric, dark mode, no lame video statuses, just what it's supposed to do Messaging. It has useful features like dark mode, disabling the typing indicator, disabling notifications doesn't prompt you to enable them back again. For privacy focused people like myself I do not require chat backups so that I can dwell on the conversations I've shared with people and keep them forever happily ever after, I'd happily pass that opportunity. In a future update I'd like to request for a smaller Unanswered Outgoing call 'bubble' in my chat history, as it takes tooo much space. A HUGE shoutout to Open Whisper Systems for creating an application like this. Thank you very much!
The app is not very responsive. The UI doesn't react to my taps most of the time. I've force quit the app several times and the problem persists.
All is lost 2/5
There appears to be no way to transfer chat history or signal contacts from android to iPhone. Disappointing. Such basic stuff.
Um.....iPad Support? 2/5
Security is great. UX lacks. 3/5
Syncing is slow with other devices. There isn’t even an iPhone version, which is not easily excusable when you’re just a web app anyway. Logs out sometimes for no reason. Otherwise, it’s great. Still the bet app for secure messaging, although competition is scarce.
Smooth, well integrated with iOS, surprisingly amazing.
The best of the best of the foo">!!!!1 👍🏻
I’d love to see a tab where group messages could be separate from one-to-one messages. Thanks, great app. I use it every day.
I use this more than any other app 5/5
Thank you for adding the in-app notification enhancements! I love Signal so much. I also really appreciate your references in your release notes :)
Useing Signal 5/5
By Mr Redd1955
I’m getting the real use of signal
And feel good about using it
Wanted to have a messaging service that would provide me some privacy. Live in a world where everyone wants to sell your data. I found signal very user friendly and a fast and efficient service. As for privacy, only time is going to tell. I know the history of the founder and I enjoyed his prior app. I don’t fault him for selling his first messaging system just glad he designed a new one. I’ll follow up as I use it more
Love disappearing messages 5/5
With disappearing messages, I feel I can chat more naturally. If I says something wrong, it is gone in a day. No stress from someone digging through our conversation history and taking things out of context.
Weird bug 3/5
I love this app but recently when I get a new message from my group chat it scrolls way back to and old message in the thread instead of showing the unread mesage first.
The problem of continuous communication please fix it app is awesome
Not working and can’t contact them 1/5
I’m dissatisfied. The app won’t accept the code they sent with the message to upgrade. Support offers no answers, no other way to contact them.
The result is I no longer can use Signal at all :((
Colored font 5/5
Great app but can you add to where we can change the color of the lettering and different font styles? Make it more fun.
Battery draining 3/5
By Roman N.
Please fix battery draining issue. Using video chat battery drains 10x faster than any other applications.
Signal is dope. 4/5
Really solid app!
One major recommendation. Add a “ping” feature that allows people to send a unique tone in case of emergencies or when immediate response is crucial!
It made me pucker 1/5
My taint is moist
Messaging can be unintuitive.
LOVE SIGNAL 5/5
By AB Obsessed
With a screaming passion.
Love it all, just need better calls! 5/5
By Nina Godinez
I’ve been using Signal for at least 6 months now, and it’s incredibly private, super easy to use (basically just like texting), and while it’s free it ALSO works fast? Amazing. The only hiccup i’ve seen time and again, is whenever I try to answer a call from another user it will say “called ended” or “signal lost”. It’ll take us going back and forth for about 4-5 minutes just for one of us to answer. Very frustrating, but for it being the only problem for me, it’s well worth it!
Why isn't this a STANDARD YET!! 5/5
By Boy Fawkes
My trade I am a grey hat hacker, bug bounty Hunter, Dev team alpha and beta tester, and a it security and research consultant. Once upon a time I had a policy of being "transparent" and in my transparency didn't hide my day activities I let the whole world know what I was up to. Then I graduated from college with a degree in it security and fell deep into the rabbit hole that is my career. I started to become more aware of how interwoven everything is, how nothing is private and whatever you consider to be private is a gold mine to the suits... But not only is out data a valid market that's being pillaged by every level of service.. it's also. About your safety.. your legal freedoms.. and just plain good common sense to apply as a first line of defense j. Today's exploits and tretchery being uncovered every day at alarming high rates in literally every app and progemywe have in rotation.. I also learned that the FBI AND CIA have been using a KNOWN backdoor they've kept secreyfrom the civilian population but also even from our allies and obviously or enemies too.. the main component of our telephone network, the SS7 Protocol and machines are used by the FBI and CIA NSA DEA natf for decades... To conduct covert domestic and foriegn spying..
Signal is secure. And he developer team stays on top of the bugs very diligently.Intoo ha e rival hacker who have tried to dig up info from. My texts and get frustrated with not being able to know what I'm doing or saying that they end up trying to dis me or disable my boxes so I can't work..
Thank you signal!!
Apple Watch series 4 3/5
Can it be figured out to put the app for the watch or an available third party app for the watch so this app can be used
Don’t like the overly “flat” look 3/5
I like the new dark theme, but the shading and buttons were removed and now it’s totally flat. It’s so flat, that I don’t like using the usual white them. The flatness makes me not want to use the app. Can you please put the buttons and shading back in? It now just looks like a bad copy of iMessage (and iMessage doesn’t look good anyway). Too much white space and zero context. THIS IS A SECURITY PROBLEM BECAUSE ALL CONTACTS LOOK THE SAME AND ONE CAN ACCIDENTALLY SEND MESSAGES TO WRONG CONTACT BECAUSE THERES IS NO SHADING LIKE BEFORE. The original look was perfect.
will not work on an iPad 1/5
can’t login using an iPad. There is no way to communicate with the company. Help is a giant PDF file, no email or comments accepted. Even sending this comment failed once already. It also requires that the app can monitor me always if it is to work properly. This is beyond mediocre.
Fine app but please allow message reactions 3/5
You guys really need to get with it and offer message reactions like Facebook and apple. I like not having my data mined but the convenience in group chats is seriously lacking.
Please enable time stamps 5/5
Please enable time stamps at meat as an option.
I want to k ow the ex’s t time a
Message was sent. This 16 hours ago is not convenient, and would
Much rather see that a message was sent at 6:46 pm.
Almost perfect 4/5
Need a vibrate mode for notifications. More subtle tones would not hurt also. Vibrate is a definite. Then its perfect
By Gaye Pehneese
Drops calls all the time. Can’t make calls in the first place some times. Extremely frustrating. Additionally they don’t support desktop calls even though it seems like a fundamental feature to ad
There’s a bug on Signal that won’t let me record and send voice messages (the microphone icon by the text bubble). Now when I use it, it freezes and sometimes makes the app crash. It’s been doing this since 2 updates ago. Sending voice messages is very important to my work.
There isn’t even an option to report this on their site, or contact them either. It’s very frustrating.
amazing app 5/5
I like the app
Not user friendly 1/5
By Bint Jbeil 2006
Feature requests: 4/5
1. Ability to delete groups /conversations
2. Ability to delete a message for everyone
3. Ability to invite people from contacts
Everyone should use this app! 5/5
Thank you so much to the developers for adding landscape mode!
Great app, took me a minute to figure out how to get to new features. 5/5
Can we get screen shot detection in future update?
Ways to grow 3/5
I like the app but I know it’s till pretty new. Right now it looks bare bones and I don’t love it. I’d love to be able to add background images and have a text search feature like WhatsApp. Additionally I’d like to see when people I’m chatting with are online or not. I’ve been using WhatsApp for about 2-3 years now and am transitioning to Signal since Facebook is removing some of the privacy features that I loved about WhatsApp. I would hope to see Signal continue to grow and expand and am happy to rest out features.
It can be better 3/5
W.r.t video call when we turn on video it just shows our side video and does not request other person’s to show / turn on the camera
Only one picture at the time?!?! :( 4/5
It seems I can Only send one picture at the time.
Signal works 5/5
Signal was easy to figure out how to use for me a confined tech-no.
Notes App 5/5
The Note to Self feature made me think you should create a separate Notes App. Encrypted of course. There aren’t any secure Notes Apps.
