With the new emphasis on working from home/remote working, I’ve been looking into mobile XMPP clients. I’ve found several iOS clients and they all seem to work fine with Openfire initially, but as soon as they are pushed to the background or the screen goes to sleep, they all immediately lose connection with Openfire and enter a “detached” state until Openfire eventually kills the connection. A mobile app for real time communication, that loses connection as soon as the screen goes off is not useful. Looking through support for the clients, this doesn’t seem to be a common complaint so I’m not sure if its my Openfire, if its just the nature of the beast, or what.
Just wanted to poll the audience here and see if anyone had good success with XMPP mobile clients? I’ve tried ChatSecure, Monal IM, Siskin IM, and AstraChat so far with varying degrees of success.
Thanks in advance.
