Currently the best XMPP client on iOS

This is currently the only actually useable XMPP OMEMO client on iOS. The only real competitor to this app on iOS would be ChatSecure. I prefer ChatSecure’s UI, but chat secure crashes too much to be usable. Siskin gets points for actually being stable and usable, which is apparently too high of a bar for most of the others to reach. Siskin at least actually works.

No clear chat history button?

Overall this app works pretty well, but it’s missing a key feature of any secure messaging platform: the ability to DELETE MESSAGES. Seriously? I hope this gets fixed soon.

Not perfect, but the best you’ll find by far. Needs a little work for OMEMO, but it seems to work. Would be nice to have omemo for uploads (and automatically scale down images) and to fix issues with OMEMO messages being displayed for different keys (or something) on refresh / reload. But otherwise very promising!
