How to use Arcipelago.ml on Android: Conversations

Open this page with your mobile phone.

Conversations is a free XMPP client for Android OS developed by Daniel Gultsch.

Install through Play Store

Since the free in "free software" is like in "free speech" and not like in "free beer", installation through Play Store costs 3$. If you want to be sure that you are running the latest version of Conversations and you do not want to explore other ways to install apps, pay for it it's surely the simplest choice.

If you consider that Daniel offers the same service as Arcipelago.ml at 8$/year per JID, you will easily understand that paying 3$ for the app and 3$ to me as a donation is not a theft at all.

Install through F-Droid

Since Conversations' license permits to redistribute its source and binaries, you can install for free it on the free software application store F-Droid. Installing F-Droid and with it Conversations you could easily keep it updated like you do with your other apps: automatically or clicking on the notification.

Manual installation

If you simply want to try Arcipelago.ml and so at this moment you don't care about keeping the client updated, you can direct download the app at this link.
