While all Soprani.ca projects, including all Cheogram gateways, are built to only standards-compliant XMPP and are tested with popular clients, there are still reasons we may consider creating Cheogram-specific apps (probably for Android first as the most popular platform among our users right now).

UX is the major reason to consider our own app. Some clients have poor or no support for some XMPP features that would be a real boon to Cheogram users, but also an app that is Cheogram-aware can do other things that users have requested (such as setting itself as the default SMS or calling app).

While we would be happy to see most features from this app end up in other clients (and especially if we fork Conversations, to end up upstream), this would allow the improved UX to get to users much more quickly.

Some feature ideas for such an app include:
