@WPalant too bad, #Riot uses a bit too much battery on phones I tested it on -- granted they were #fdroid flavour. I still have it on my phone, mainly to connect to #Freenode
(irony aside), but with every bit of autosync disabled when the app is not in the foreground.
I prefer the usage and look'n'feel of Conversations for family chatting

@jiefk Yes, so far Riot still shows most potential despite the shortcomings. And I'm explicitly not saying "Matrix" because as of now there is no real selection of usable and secure clients.
Will continue looking but I have little hope to still find a good Signal replacement.
@WPalant what do you mean with "XMPP identifier"? Do you mean the Jabber ID what looks like an email address?
@jr Yes, that for example. When registering I had to enter a user name and select a server, yet it expected me to compose a Jabber ID myself when logging in. And it genuinely confused me when I tried to join a channel, I didn't realize that channel IDs were composed in the same way.
@WPalant maybe open an issue for this? I totally understand how this could be confusing for first time XMPP users
@jr It's not really an isolated incident. It's a general symptom of a UI which wasn't designed with less knowledgeable users in mind. And opening issues only gets you so far...
@jr Mind you, I'm not blaming the devs. I've been there myself, I know exactly how this happens. Doesn't mean that I have a simple answer. There is a reason why mature projects don't let developers design user interfaces.
