@doshkim tell us about Sendbird :)
John S. KimMakerHiring@doshkim · CEO, SendBird
@bentossell Hi Ben! Thank you for finding us! I'm one of the co-founders of SendBird. We used to develop social games and communities prior to this startup, and couldn't find a solution to easily build chat communities or messaging features for our app. So we've built the messaging SDK+backend from scratch to help developers like ourselves to save time and resources, so that developers can focus on making apps and games even more engaging. It's um.. 2:45am now, so I'll be back in the morning to answer any questions! & thanks again for hunting us! :) This is amazing!

Awesome product! I would love to see it integrated with Swift.
MarkMakerHiring@markatsendbird · Head of Growth, SendBird
@eeschimosu Good news is we're already on it! To support Swift is our top priority now. It should be released soon!

@markatsendbird When can we expect the Swift integration? Could you specify any timeframe? We would love to use Sendbird for messaging in our Swift app.

@sammyschuckert I am grateful to hear your voice. @jeongjin9 and I will discuss approximate timeline for Swift integration on tomorrow morning. thank you for interest and will revert back to you soon as we have something fixed

Thank you @eeschimosu @sammyschuckert for your interest in the Swift integration with SendBird. (@SwiftLang) We're happy to finally announce that we've updated our iOS SDK that is now fully compatible with Swift. please find the details at our blog: http://blog.sendbird.com/sendbir...

Wow, cool product to integrate with Apps to enhance and engage the community/customers !!
John S. KimMakerHiring@doshkim · CEO, SendBird
@dipaksaraf Yes exactly! Apps that use us range anywhere from music apps, dating apps, education apps, ecommerce apps, and even gaming apps!
MarkMakerHiring@markatsendbird · Head of Growth, SendBird
@dipaksaraf Our recent study showed that apps that send in-app messages perform 2-3.5 times higher in terms of user retention than apps that do not. It's amazing! (http://blog.sendbird.com/why-doe...)
Brannon Desseyn@bdesseyn · Proximity Manager at Aloompa
does sendbird have the ability to work without connectivity?
John S. KimMakerHiring@doshkim · CEO, SendBird
@bdesseyn @bdesseyn Hi Brannon! Thank you for asking. If you are mentioning about offline/cache support, I believe this is a crucial feature. Right now, the client-side cache is not yet provided by us, but it's on our short-term roadmap, so hopefully, you'll be hearing from us quite soon. Or do you mean something like over bluetooth/wifi?
Brannon Desseyn@bdesseyn · Proximity Manager at Aloompa
@doshkim Thanks John! I was actually referring to a little of both. My line of work always has issues with connectivity at events, and a chat program that not online cache's but also could potentially work via Bluetooth (ie: FireChat), would be very interesting. Very cool product regardless!
John S. KimMakerHiring@doshkim · CEO, SendBird
@bdesseyn Thank you for the feedback. We'll get the first one (offline support/local cache) done first. We'll discuss with our team to see if we can support bluetooth/wifi/whatever local protocol available soon as well. This seems like a cool idea!
Navid Mirzaie Milani@navidmirzaie · Front-end developer
great product or you guys planning to bring the javascript SDK also as a module?
MarkMakerHiring@markatsendbird · Head of Growth, SendBird
@navidmirzaie We're working hard to bring JavaScript modules such as Bower, NPM to the world by the end of this month or as early as possible in Feb!
Navid Mirzaie Milani@navidmirzaie · Front-end developer
@markatsendbird @navidmirzaie great to hear. Also as CommonJS? im asking it because we are planning to implement sendbird in our app, which currently is being developed in Appcelerator.
John S. KimMakerHiring@doshkim · CEO, SendBird
@navidmirzaie Thank you for asking Navid! We are getting some inbound inquiries about Appcelerator usage, so we'll discuss this with our team to put it on our roadmap soon.
Navid Mirzaie Milani@navidmirzaie · Front-end developer
@doshkim @navidmirzaie Great to hear that , looking forward to it. Goodluck with Sendbird
