about Telegram and WhatsApp Messenger Mar 2016

Great app, although a little confusing to start using at first. Was looking for a replacement to another messaging app that wasn't private enough (don't trust anything owned by Facebook anymore) and this one seemed quite popular and safe. End-to-end encryption, self-destruct timers and most importantly, their secret chats that cannot be accessed on the cloud are great.

While the client itself is open source, there are a lot of parts of telegram that aren't. It is not possible to look through the whole process of one client writing another. I think to make that problem more clear telegram should actually be put in the category Free and not open source.
