Push notifications

If you want to use the app with your own server and want push notification to work you have to set them up:

  • Register at https://firebase.google.com/, set up the project if you have not done so already.
  • Download your own config file GoogleService-Info.plist and place it in the Tinodios/ folder of your copy of the project. The config file contains keys specific to your Firebase/FCM registration.
  • Copy Google-provided server key to tinode.conf, see details here.

Translations

The app is currently available in English (default), Simplified Chinese, Spanish. Pull requests with more translations are welcome. Two files need to be translated: storyboard and code.
