Bring communication to apps with MQTT based Applozic Chat SDK

Today version 3 of the Applozic Chat SDK is available, providing developers with a MQTT based leaner, faster and scalable real time messaging SDK.

Since the last time, we launched the SDK, we’ve learned a lot about how developers are using the Applozic messaging sdk and the pitfalls they’ve encountered. This version simplifies the sdk in several ways and also brings new exciting features.

Features

  1. Online/offline presence
  2. ‘Last seen at’
  3. Typing indicator
  4. Unread message count
  5. Offline support

Performance improvements

  1. MQTT protocolMQTT is specifically designed to use bandwidth and batteries sparingly. Using MQTT connection and routing messages through Applozic chat server, we are able to achieve phone-to-phone delivery in the hundreds of milliseconds.
  2. Data caching

Messages and contacts data are now cached at the device side to avoid multiple calls going to server, which not only reduces the bandwidth used by the app but also makes the chat history loading really fast.

Customizable Design

Since beginning we have been getting request from developers for a customizable UI design as companies have their own design mockups.

With this version, developers now have various option to customize the design including:

  1. Sender’s image show/hide option
  2. Circular contact image
  3. Start new conversation button show/hide option
  4. Setting app themes

With Applozic open source android, iOS and web clients you can customize the design the way you want.
