Description

Hello,

I started to use pidgin 1 month ago and I found it amazing.

I would like to ask if you are implementing, or there are possibilities to see an implementation or a creation to use the sw with the Iphone4. Are you developing an app?Is it possibile? Or maybe the app require an account? The only important date that should be saved are the groups that the user creates to keep separated all the friends. I can imagine that without a registration this could be difficult to have on the PC and on the Iphone4 at the same time. You can invent a way to sync.

Please do it, would be the best a pidgin app for iphone4!!!

Let me know, I am looking forward.

Nick

We cannot make a version of Pidgin for use on any device running the iPhone OS. None of our dependencies exist for that OS, we'd have to write a completely new interface (which we really don't want to do), and the terms for the app store are draconian enough that they are completely incompatible with the GPL. Even if we wanted to (which we don't), the GPL incompatibility makes it impossible to develop an app for those devices.

Thank you for your clear answer!

What about let the app be on cydia? Is not compatibile with the GPL principles? Could be a "get away"?

By the way, do you know this ? http://www.freelancer.com/projects/Wireless-Electronics/porting-Pidgin-iPhone.html Have you ever heard something about?
