Signal now with iPad support

by Volker Weber


Signal now runs on iPad the same way it runs on Mac or PC, as a remote for the phone. Just update on your phone and install on iPad. When you launch it on iPad, it will guide you through the setup process.

I now have all four rtc apps that I use both on iPhone and iPad: iMessage, Facetime, Signal, Telegram.


Very good!
But what I am desperately waiting for is any kind of backup functionality (it‘s there in Android). Yesterday I set up my wife‘s new iPhone - and with that she lost all her current chats. What a pitty!

Don't worry, the chats will be back as soon as somebody posts. Backups undermine security.

Good news!

>>the chats will be back as soon as somebody posts>>

But only the tab with the chat is reappearing, right? The whole conversation from the past is still missing. Or am I wrong?

No, you are right. New keys. You would not be able to decrypt old messages.

Why do you have a badge on the OneNote icon?

Because I have 11 unread notes in a shared notebook. I always try to have people collaborate so that they benefit from each-other's work.
