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.
