App Reviews

  • Best Privacy App Yet

    By Snap_Chats989
    This is simply the best privacy app with everything neatly bundled into it. It has a nice authentication feature, sms & mms messaging & disappearing messages with people [to keep them clean if you’d like], calls, and keeps it all private, app switch privacy [keeping the screen blank for privacy while switching apps so wandering eyes cannot see the screen], and many more features packed into this powerhouse. To anyone experiencing any issues with calls, make sure your notifications are on and properly set with the app, and look into the settings in the app itself and it easily shows how to have your calls show up with the name [if you would like to] or just a call without a name. The settings are a breeze and make it very easy to understand. Very rarely you’ll have to re-register for push notifications, but that’s also very easily accomplished. If I could rate higher than 5 stars I would. 10 stars out of 5 stars is more like it...
  • Wow I love it

    By Meatguy813
    Everything about this app is pretty much spot on it is the best way to chat with your friends and not feel nervous of people watching. The timer feature is extremely useful in allows both parties to set a Time limit on the message very helpful. I have been using this app for almost 2 years now and have sent all my friends over only way to communicate. Reason for writing this review is I would like to change one option if that is something you guys would consider and that is changing the calling feature so it gives you another menu so you don’t just click it and it calls right away and tells the user that you try to call them. Just make some other second screen that allows you to confirm the call but other than that this app is perfect.
  • Great app. Needs more features!

    By cleggerbyte
    My closest friends and I strictly use walkie-talkie style apps to communicate. We just recently switched from Voxer (which we used for years) to Signal. LOVE the quality and interface of Signal compared to Voxer, but we’re missing a few of the features. I miss how Voxer would auto-play my messages one after another. Also, when listening to a message on Signal, if I pause to send a voice massage, it causes my friend’s message to start over. Frustrating to have to listen to the same message over and over when we try to have conversations. Also, Voxer allowed us to speed up messages and to “like” them. Overall, Signal is a better quality app, but it would be THE BEST if features like this were added. Thanks for making this great communication app!!
  • Can’t switch devices; slow

    By Must Exit
    Hope the Signal Foundation moves fast to rectify so many drawbacks and issues with the design of this app. Signal prevents users from backing up conversations and moving them to a new device. New device? Start over! This is claimed as a security feature while still integrating with CallKit (which can upload call information to iCloud). So this app is a non-starter for anything other than calls and ephemeral chats that you don’t need later. They may as well put a default self-destruct timer set to a month or so for all messages. It’s also slower in message delivery than similar apps that have a richer and much better user experience. Not supporting multiple platforms with syncing between them, like Wire or Telegram do, is yet another deficiency for me. I want a secure messaging app, but this one is saddled with poorer user experience while being yet another centralized walled garden.
  • Almost 5 stars

    By Nahps
    I love everything about Signal EXCEPT the fact you can't remove people from a group chat. My business colleagues and I use Signal mainly for business so when someone is no longer a part of a specific project we're unable to simply remove them from the group chat. You have to create an entirely new chat and add everyone back which is a very annoying process. Another thing is when someone calls me from Signal, it doesn't show me whose calling unless I specifically have the Signal app open and am on Signal at the moment. I'm not sure if that varies depending on what type of phone someone is using or not but I have an iPhone 6. It would be nice to address that as well if possible.
  • Far more than could be asked for!

    By One player gone
    I myself was an early adapter to signal. Since their roll out the changes made are phenomenal!! Security, privacy, and trustworthy! Far more than I can say for many other apps out there. Bells and whistles I wish not for as it leaves room for error. As it stands now I have reliability, trust, privacy. On an iPhone regular calls are sort of muffled, on signal the clarity is outstanding! The support team is quick to respond to any issue with fast and friendly and supremely knowledgeable support. Can’t ask for much more than the brains and support of the signal team!! If I could rate higher I would!! By far the best app out!
  • Why Signal? Why?

    By brooket
    My friends and I moved to your platform for privacy and we love that you keep adding in new capabilities to keep up with more established messaging clients from Apple and Google. But I’m baffled by the latest release. I love the fresh design (Signal has always felt very dated) but the density of information in the new release makes it so much harder to pay attention to the content of messages, particularly in high volume groups. Why do I need so many icons and information for who has read and how long ago it was posted? On every single message? And why is the author in the left column and at the top of every text? And why does all of this metadata have the same visual prominence as the content of messages? It’s honestly so disruptive that, despite our love of Signal and privacy and the barriers to switching, we keep bringing it up. We love you Signal, but this was an enormous fail.
  • Really dislike the new timeline

    By Picadilly23
    I am an iOS user and have LOVED this app for many months now. Love the features. I use it for messaging and calls and it’s been great. But after tonight’s update... It no longer shows the time messages are sent or received - just that it was an hour or 6 hours or whatever and more importantly, I can’t see if my messaging partner has read the message or at what time. It’s really disorienting and frustrating. I don’t even know what else has changed, but this was SO frustrating I immediately went online to see if it was an update or if my phone had gone wonky. Please, please bring back the sent and received times! Also, would be really helpful If it worked - even just notifications - with Apple Watch. Thanks!
  • Get this for privacy. Yes.

    By SkylarArianna63
    I would suggest typing bubbles. Idk if it goes with the privacy thing why they’re aren’t, but the messaging in the app looks & sounds like iMsg and has read receipts so I don’t see why not. It would always be super insightful and helpful. Maybe add them and add a feature where they can be seen or not to stay true to the private and secure component. Also, the voice recorder is DATED. There has been a plethora of times where I have recorded long voice memos saying important stuff & it disappears cus I have to keep my finger down/ If I don’t slide correctly up then it’ll cancel. That’s super annoying. Other than that this is the app for privacy. I’m telling ya.
  • Reliable and Unobtrusive

    By Interstellie
    Signal is a reliable, straightforward, and unobtrusive messenger. Of free messaging apps as of August 2018, it's the best tradeoff (in features) for the security of encrypted communications and open-source coding. More than anything, I'd like to be able to flip the screen orientation (even at the expense of screen size), so that I could use it comfortably with my keyboard. Either being able to share the account between my iPhone and iPad, or being able to silence notifications of certain individuals within groups (so I don't get notified on my iPad account every time I message someone in a group including my iPhone account) would also be huge.
