The free public XMPP/Jabber server Talkr.IM gets Apple Push notifications for iPhone.

The ProcessOne’s free, open, public XMPP/Jabber server Talkr.IM is gaining a new feature: Apple Push notifications. This well enable users to get notified of offline messages when they arrive, as well as simulate a continued XMPP session on iPhone devices that still do not implement multitasking.

For the latter feature, since the iPhone still does not accept to run applications in the background, if you want to use another application, you will have to shutdown your XMPP client and thus disconnect from Talkr.IM. With the Push feature enabled on your XMPP client (if this one supports Apple Push notifications), you can tell your contacts you are still online when you are using other applications. You will then automatically receive notifications of new messages. And when you re-open your XMPP client, you will receive these messages.

OneTeam for iPhone has the Apple Push feature enabled: you will be able to use it on you Talkr.IM account. Just use you Jabber ID, and for a simple configuration, go to the “Settings” tab, then “Push settings”.

The Talkr.IM XMPP server will stop at 10:00am CET. This means:

  • 01:00am Los Angeles
  • 04:00am New York
  • 12:00 Moscow
  • 18:00 Tokyo
