If there's anyone that can stand up to WhatsApp, regardless of how complicated it may seem, that's Telegram. With privacy as its mainstay, this instant messaging application has become a rather popular alternative to chat with friends. And now there's a Mac client that intends to be better than the official app: Cutegram.
An open source Telegram client.
This free open source program is compatible with many different desktop environments, including Linux and Windows, as well as the case we're interested in: OS X.
