IOS7 and MUC

I’ve been putting a lot of work into fixing all sorts of  bugs that came in with iOS7. As beta testers may know I am working on updating the UI so it fits the new OS better. I am also fixing bugs that were in the MUC implementation and unlocking multi account support.  Here is tonight’s screenshot set showing all three things. iOS Simulator Screen shot Oct 6, 2013, 7.09.51 PM

Ales & Lagers for iOS

UPDATE: on the request of beer advocate, I have not released this app.


In addition to fitness another interest of mine is beer. I can be a bit of a beer snob with a preference for a good Belgian — on an unrelated note I should really meet Monal users when I go to Europe next time.  Anyway,  I like beer and I like Unfortunately they don’t have an app or a very mobile friendly website so I’ve made a little app that lets you search quickly through their site using Google.  Usually typing the first three letters of a beer name gets you to the right beer. Much faster.

The app, Ales & Lagers will be available  in about a week.

Monal is out.  It is propagating through all of the stores  and might not show up in searches yet, but you can get it here:

I  believe I have fixed both of the major iOS6 related bugs that forced me to decide  pull 2.0.8 and from the store at the last minute.   Sorry for the trouble.  Considering how many people around the world are dependent on Monal for business and personal use on a daily basis, I honestly could not release them  and  thought it would be better to have nothing at all available  than something unreliable.  Thank you for your patience.

2.0.8 development

I am hoping for a quick turnaround for 2.0.8 that includes many of the features cut in 2.0.7 as well as bug fixes. Here is the current changelog:

1. fixes issue with navigation buttons in contact list
2. correctly sets away status on contacts
3. option to sort online contacts by status
4. set the priority based on presence

Shout out to JRTPLib and Final Change log

The Jingle VOIP functions in Monal use JRTPlib by Jori Liesenborgs for the RTP communication. VOIP wouldn’t have been possible without it.  Thanks Jori for making this fantastic library free.

I am now testing Monal on all of my iOS devices. This is the final change log for 2.0.7 . Nothing will be added until 2.0.8
