In the App Store, a new alternative version of Telegram from official developers has appeared. Specially for iOS.
It differs from the classical one with several parameters.
The first difference between Telegram X and the standard Telegram is that it is written in the Swift programming language.
Advantages of this language for iPhones:
- support for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks
- compatibility with the main Apple code base written in Objective-C
- simultaneous use of the classic Objective-C and modified by Apple
In comparison with C, Swift requires much less code. According to Apple, it works faster than analogs.
Due to the use of this programming language, Telegram developers have been able to significantly increase the download speed of the application and its contents.
The developers of the messenger noted that this version requires less energy than its progenitor. And it is true.
I’ve been using instant messengers for 3 hours, equally. Look at the difference in the load between them:
1% vs 14%, both messengers work synchronously, there is no delay in one. But the energy consumption is much lower.
New themes appeared
In this version of Telegram, there were 4 themes at once – Day Classic, Day, Night and Night Blue. The first two are distinguished by the colors of the selection of messages. Day is a copy of iMessage.
Night and Night Blue differ not only in messages, but in the whole interface. The first one – the messenger becomes black and white, leaving only images in color.
The second – the interface of the program is painted in dark blue tones, the messenger looks more colorful, but it saves a black background.
These themes will be especially useful to owners of the iPhone X with OLED displays. Black color requires much less energy.
Incidentally, the animation of the scrolling of the tape has also changed. Now it’s similar to the one in iMessage.
What does Telegram X lack?
In fact, the main functions of the classic messenger were transferred to this version of the program. True, the newest had not yet been added. For example, svayp on the message to respond to it.
Also, the developers did not add the identification capabilities of Face ID to Telegram X. Yes, and in pritsnipe there is no way to open a link inside the application.
This is really not enough now, because the program throws you into Safari.
Conclusion – you need to take
As for me, this is the best implementation of Telegram on the iPhone. Everything works even faster, the animation is smoother, there is immediately support for the iPhone X, and there is also a dark interface theme. Rather, even two topics to choose from.
It’s a pity that Telegram was not that original. Durov, it was necessary at once so!
