I use Element. It is essential.
It works fine on my XA2 Plus, on 4.4 and 4.5. From Aptoide store.
After eight months waiting (!) i finally got mobile data on my 10iii.
Element app from Aptoide/Fdroid (no idea which) was working fine on SFOS 4.4.
Updated to SFOS 4.5 and it was still working fine.
Decided to update my apps on the 10iii - including Element - and all of a sudden the app won’t open properly.
- press Element icon
- app opens full screen with loading symbol
- app then minimises to the system tray
- clicking on the system tray mini-window tries to full screen, but bounces back to minimised
- rinse and repeat.
Uninstalled and reinstalled from both Aptoide and Fdroid, same behaviour; no working element app.
Now scared to update the Element app on my old XA2 in case that borks it on that handset too!
a) is this known behaviour, and if so is there an easy(!) fix?
b) is a a less hastle(!) matrix client that is fully compliant with Element server/chatrooms/E2E?
I’m on an emotional rollercoaster with SFOS at the moment, and I’m getting pretty tired of the experience. I simply can’t investing this much time and energy trying to get a phone to do basic phone things like talk to people…
