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.
See our blog https://tigase.net/beagleim-3.6-and-siskin-5.6-released/ for details.
Topic 7: Why Push Notifications are not enough?
Push on iOS sucks and appears to be unreliably. Additionally the Push XEP-0357 lacks support for different types of priorities. Therefore spam messages from strangers will always alert the user as there are no silent notifications.
Tigase proposes some very interesting solutions to current push issues, like using encryption to hide message contexts inside push notifications from the push service itself.
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.
