- 2FA here is with bugs. Please check it with the phone number with no 2FA enabled.
- If you are from Russia - be sure to have VPN running, to let it connect to TG's servers.
- There's no nice display message if you number under FLOOD error by Telegram. Should probably show different message when number is wrong or 'flooded'. Check in console if it's the case. But you'd notice this on other apps too.
- When you are signed in in dialogs/messages - there may be some bugs with videos/images. Feel free to reload the page, if there's, state is saved in your browser localStorage.

What is done:

- Based on the very refactored tele.js library switched to layer 105

- complex logic to guess country by phone number (KZ/RU, US/Canada).
- monkey animation
- archive the monkey animation json to reduce bundle size.
- avatar crop popup (without uploading the image to TG though).

The design of the app doesn't comply with the provided mockups. The contest task is not completed: the app doesn't support 2SV, the crop feature for signup flow is also missing. 

The amount of initially downloaded code is this app’s advantage (107KB). The overall speed is average, the app is laggy when sending the code and loading the chats list.  

The following drawbacks were identified during testing:

– Certain messages have wrong previews in the chats list (
– Missing 'Keep me signed in';
– Missing buttons in chat headers;
– Missing statuses for both users and groups (Last Seen / members count);
– Pinned / muted chats cannot be identified in the chats list;
– Posts in channels are aligned to the left.

Thank you for the time reviewing it.

I think it looks close to mockups. There's space for improvements(fonts, scrollbars, button effects etc), but comparing with others(where you comments say design is implemented) I'd say it's ok :)

Other than this, feedback is very fair and detailed. Kudos, guys, massive job done checking all contestants entries.
If I choose the country of Russia, Kazakhstan is selected. There is no checkbox with consent when login. There is no animation of the monkey at the entrance.

Bug with Russia. - confirmed. Thanks. Works ok in different way though (typing the number of KZ and RU).

There is monkey. What browser are you using, can you please let me know?

Can't login. Says "invalid phone number".

Thanks for feedback. Issue is either because of your number is under FLOOD ( I saw you have the same comment on other entries). Or if you are from Russia and don't have vpn running.
