Monal and Siskin are the most actively developed ones. Siskin is my recommendation currently.
Already available via #brew and as download from github: https://github.com/tigase/beagle-im/releases/tag/5.0-b111
New versions of #XMPP #jabber clients for #Apple #ios and #macos released. Biggest changes are introduction of XMPP #MIX (modern way of groupchats), significant improvements in audio/video calls and message editing/deleting.
Check out https://tigase.net/beagleim-4.0-and-siskin-6.0-released/ for details.
Read on to find out why MIX is great and what problems it solves https://tigase.net/tigase-im-mix/
PS. xmpp.cloud is packed with features: *free* domain hosting, file uploads, TURN/STUN server for your audio/video calls, 100% XMPP compliance and high availability cluster so you won't have to worry about downtime - and it's powered by #Tigase #XMPP Server
After testing Siskin and Monal for a few days, my impression is that XMPP is now way more usable on iOS than it was back in the days. Many thanks to @tigase for their great work on Siskin IM.
New #BeagleIM beta just landed with Last Message Correction (XEP-0308), Message Retraction (XEP-0424), quick replies, captcha in registration forms (XEP-0158) and more.
Grab it from https://github.com/tigase/beagle-im/releases/tag/4.0-b99 or via #homebrew
#Tigase #XMPP Server 8.1.0 GA has been released and as always it's packed with improvements! SASL-EXTERNAL for federated connections, avatars in groupchats, encrypted push notifications, push for MUC, improved hardened mode and more!
Head to https://tigase.net/tigase-xmpp-server-8.1.0-ga/ for details.
You can grab installation packages from https://github.com/tigase/tigase-server/releases/tag/tigase-server-8.1.0 and follow QuickStart guide (https://docs.tigase.net/tigase-server/8.1.0/Administration_Guide/html/#QuickStart) to get it up and running blazing fast.
The current state of #XMPP iOS clients certainly leaves a lot to be desired. But I'm very excited about the rate of progress recently.
We now have a growing number of people making it their mission to ensure XMPP gets the first-class iOS experience it desperately needs.
Make sure to provide the developers feedback. If you find a bug that isn't reported, or that you could provide additional insight into, that is a really helpful way to contribute to improving the future of XMPP on iOS.
We can do this! 😎
@kirschwipfel for IOS/MacOS SiskinIM and BeagleIM works best for me.
For IOS there are also Monal and ChatSecure. For MacOS there is also Monal.
One of the top real-time communication software providers.
We like to make things to scale, in fact we are little bit too obsessed with optimizations.
