Struggling with Telegram.
I was wondering if we needed a post - perhaps in "News" - which lists apps that work in 16.04. Devs could then post the news of their updated apps...

@dtarrant yep, that's perfect for a first attempt
What's happening with your telegram app exactly?
@advocatux Since I succeeded in re-installing it yesterday, it's been working fine thanks.

@3arn0wl some developers are working now on splitting up OpenStore in two parts, one for 15.06, and the other for 16.04.
When the new OpenStore is up and running, we'll be able to know at a glance which apps are (or aren't) working in xenial.
We'll have to wait for a while but that option is better than someone installing and testing all the apps (meaning I doubt someone volunteers for that), and because there are apps without maintainer now, developers making apps just for 16.04, etc
Yeah I guess, @advocatux
For what it's worth, I've also been struggling with Telegram this morning (on Turbo 15.04 Dev v61) hanging at the phone number prompt, whilst online wirelessly using my university's eduroam network. However, the moment I switched from eduroam to the university's guest network and tried again, the code popped up immediately and I'm using Telegram!
I've had similar issues with Telegram,
What helped to bypass that white screen of death is to login to the web client on telegram website first,
Then uninstall the app & remove .cache/ ./config/
Reboot the phone,
Re install the app,
You will receive the code in your telegram web client.

Yes it does seem to help to be logged into the web client first. This has helped a number of times.
