There has never been a better time to get into XMPP, a free public chat network no one controls or owns. Monal is a fast and user friendly way to use XMPP. Just download the app, login or register and you are ready to chat in minutes. It looks and works the way other apps do, so there is no need to “learn XMPP” or even care what it is.

Ratings and Reviews
Looks cool, but isn't logging in to a Trillian account. I'll happily update the rating if it can be made to work, but doesn't seem to be working at all.
