One of the new requirements for all apps sent to the app store is that they be compatible with iPhone OS3, which is going to launch in under a month. This morning was spent testing SworIM with the OS and aside from some rather odd issues with the project file, the application runs just fine on the new OS.
When OS3 does launch, I'm going to try to add push notifications so it replicates the feel of running a background process.

While google talk is the default settings on SworIM, it is also a standard XMPP (Jabber) client. It has been tested with two other very popular systems Openfire (aka wildfire), which is a popular open source XMPP server and eJabberD which power Jabber.org, one of the major XMPP servers on the internet. It is this flexibility that distinguishes SworIM from other clients on the store right now

The app is about a week away from initial release. We've just added the ability to add/remove buddies using the finger side on the row to remove and a plus button on the upper right to add. In addition there is an option to trigger vibration when a new message comes in.
The only things left to finish before final release are a alpha sort on the buddies, populating the chat log tab and final icons and art.
We can also confirm that SworIM has been tested with Wildfire/openfire servers and will connect to corporate servers through a VPN connection.
Below are screenshots from build .581, the latest build

We now have a version operating on the iPhone. Most of the launch target features are in place. I still need to add the ability to add/remove a buddy and test with some more non google xmpp servers.
So far, it has worked perfectly with the google talk servers. Some screenshots from the current build (.56) running on Iphone 2.2.1
