If you want to develop an amazing app on Android, you need to have a strong base in Java, C, objective-C, HTML, CSS, and SQL for the backend. Based on my experience, I suggest that you use Marvel tool to design the app and UI elements. To develop App, you can use PhoneGap, Telerik tools.

Connect Ejabberd server and has customized it for achieving high degree of operational efficiency, then Customizing XMPP, the protocol for Ejabberd, Being encrypted with HMAC, chat app you build using this solution will be free from account spoofing and DDOS attacks.

Mnesia, the default DB of ERLANG that’s appropriate for multiple users for user login sessions connect MySQL to keeps the repository of user details like account credentials, personal info etc.

Cassandra does the job of storing and archiving the chat logs. For the heavy storage duty seeks the help of Amazon S3 bucket. Multimedia files like audio, video, images, emoticons and much more are stored in Amazon cloud which helps in quick rendering.

The following features need to be present while creating chat app in android: Image sending, attachment file sending, screen shot capture, video call, instant messaging, voice calls, sharing of contacts and messages of devices, and many more.
To develop chat application for android and other devices you need to hire professional programmer, for that I personally suggest you Chetu Inc. They already delivered more than 16000+ applications world wide.

Building a chat app in android/iOS, becomes easier and high level technology is near to you. I would suggest highly performing technologies like Ejabberd, XMPP, Amazon Web services, Mnesia & MySQL, Cassandra.

  1. The Ejabberd is an open source server provide customized the app to get better performance and XMPP protocol helps to speed up sign in and re-sign in the sessions.
  2. An Amazon web service, where we can store and manage the video/audio content securely.
  3. Mnesia & MySQL maintain the user login details, other personal data.
  4. Cassandra database saves chat history to retrieve the chat easily to re-communicate again.

Use these advanced technologies, a readymade chat app development solutions right ahead you Contus Fly.

Indeed it is an incredible idea to create a chat app:). However there are multiple different technologies & features to be included into to build such app. The programming language must be Erlang, this very technology is used to develop the highly-popular chat app Whatsapp as well. Also the Ejabberd server must be used to develop using certain pluggable modules. The features that must be a part of your chat app, are:

  1. One-on-one Chat
  2. Contact actual and presence listing
  3. Store and forward of offline messages
  4. Personal Event Protocol & Message typing specification
  5. Multi-User Chat for Group Chat
  6. Privacy Setting and Account Spoofing
  7. Message Archive Management
