      Prav iOS fundraiser

      ravi · Tuesday, 27 February - 13:12 · 3 visibility

    We need your help! In our experience, onboarding #iOS users to #XMPP is inconvenient right now compared to Android - there is no #Quicksy like phone number/SMS OTP sign up. Developing a convenient and easy-to-onboard XMPP iOS app is one of our top priorities.

    Help us and the whole XMPP ecosystem by contributing to the #Prav iOS app fundraiser at the following link 👉 https://opencollective.com/prav-ios. Prav iOS app will be Free/Libre Software[1] following our track record of transparency and privacy.

    Due to network effects, a messaging app is not just a personal choice and even a single contact of yours having iOS can affect wider adoption of XMPP (we also don't like #Apple but we feel this is an essential step for adoption of XMPP by people outside the Free Software circles).

    Remember that whatever be the amount, every donation counts 🙂
