FAQ for v 1.01

Does this work with ipod touch.

Yes. As long as you have an internet connection.

Where are the settings?

Settings are currently in the iphone/ipod setting application. Look for the sworim icon.

What authentication is supported right now?

Currently, it supports only SASL Plain. I am adding SASL MD5 and Plain text in the next release.

I am having SSL connection issues.

Try setting it to port 5223 instead of 5222 and see if that helps. Make sure your server uses SASL plain authentication or it will not be able to log in

Does it need iphone os3?
While it doesnt technically at the moment, there are database hooks (Core Data) that i want to use that isn't available in 2.0 and it will be 3.0 exclusive in the future. I will try to compile the next release with the 2.0 SDK and release that if it works.

What servers does it work with?

1.02 has been the most heavily tested with google talk. I have also connected to's ejabberd server and the latest openfire server. I am currently heavily testing with openfire.

1.01 released, FAQ and reviews

1.01 has been released in the app store. This is a bug fix update that fixes sticky/slowdown issues experienced by some users in the first version.

I am working on making a FAQ page on this blog so that people can see quick answers to recurring problems. I am also working resolving SSL and authentication problems people are having for the next release. Keep an eye out on this page for updates on that.

Finally, there are a ton of 1 star reviews on itunes, some from people looking for the settings menu. I've decided to ditch the standard apple menu and make my own in application to reduce confusion. In the mean time, if you have used the application and find it useful, please consider giving a positive star rating in itunes. You do not have to write anything, just give it a star rating. There are 50 people who gave 1 star reviews and close to a thousand users, it would be unfortunate for the 50 to drown out the rest. Thanks!

1.01.. just sitting there..

1.01 still hasn't been approved. I have no idea why it is taking so long for approval. I'm going to have to see what the allowed frequency of releases in the store is.
