    "Telegram has ended up to be pretty good in my opinion. I like the fact that there's no filesize limit for videos I send out so I don't have to worry about a video or file being too large to send which was a much bigger problem on other apps I've used."

    "I like the idea of this app and think many people will want it's features. However, I don't find I need my messaging or calls to be that secure. It's strictly a personal thing, but I wouldn't need all the anonymity and actually, that kind of worries me. This seems like an app that could eventually be used for shenanigans that aren't on the up and up."
