I am sure you all have heard of Telegram before, if you haven’t Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security to put it in short terms (sounds like BBM), the developer of iGrann (Instagram client) who has a knack for bringing big name apps to BlackBerry 10 has just tweeted the above photo teasing about how it just might come to BlackBerry 10.
More about Telegram:
Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security. It’s superfast, simple and free.
With Telegram, you can create group chats with up to 200 people so you can stay connected with everyone at once. Plus, you can share videos up to 1GB, send multiple photos from the web, and forward any media you receive in an instant. All your messages are in the cloud, so you can easily access them from any of your devices.
For those interested in maximum privacy, we’ve added Secret Chats, featuring end-to-end encryption to ensure that a message can only be read by its intended recipient. When it comes to Secret Chats, nothing is logged on our servers and you can automatically program the messages to self-destruct from both devices so there is never any record of it.
We built Telegram to make messaging safe again so you can take back your right to privacy.
Why Switch to Telegram?
FAST: Telegram is the fastest messaging app on the market because it uses a decentralized infrastructure with data centers positioned around the globe to connect people to the closest possible server.
SECURE: Security flaws in popular apps like WhatsApp have gotten a lot of bad press recently, so we made it our mission to provide the best security on the market.
CLOUD STORAGE: Never lose your data again! Telegram offers free unlimited cloud storage for all your Telegram messages and media that you can securely access from multiple devices.
While we definitely prefer BBM over any other cross-platform messaging app, users want choices, bringing an app like Telegram to BlackBerry 10 will only add to the list of big name apps we now have on BlackBerry 10, for more on the development of this app follow the developer’s Twitter account here.
