For being an app to, well, send and receive messages, it does just about everything wrong:

I've tried signal desktop as well, but I couldn't get it to really work. I was originally expecting it to show up with the text threads from my phone with contacts, but neither of them are synced between the desktop and mobile after pairing it to your mobile number. And I think the app has to be running on the PC to detect new texts from your phone, or else it wont show up. Meaning if you are relying on it to check your texts, without it being run 24/7, there is a fairly good chance you will miss the texts. What's even the point of using it or even it's existence if it is such a hassle?

The mobile version I like though. Even though I've never came across anyone else who uses it, meaning none of my texts will be encrypted anyway. Oh well, maybe I will come across someone who uses it someday.

Signal Desktop can receive texts on its own. That part works fine.
