Lime Talk supports communication via XMPP/Jabber protocol. This gives you great flexibility when choosing the application that you wish to use to communicate with your website’s visitors. This article will show you how to set up your mobile device so that it can be used to communicate with your website’s visitors.
In order to set up Lime Talk to work properly with your mobile device, you need three things:
I believe you already have that. If not, just sign up.
You may easily create your XMPP/Jabber account here at https://www.xmpp.jp/signup. Just choose a username and password, verify that you are not a robot and click “Register” (see picture below). If your chosen username is available, you should receive a message confirming successful registration.
XMPP/Jabber protocol is an open platform, so there is a wide variety of solutions for each operating system. We have tested some of the applications:
The same process may be used to connect your desktop IM application to your Lime Talk account. This way, you don’t need to have Lime Talk client zone opened in your browser.
We have created a tutorial “Installing Trillian on Apple” to give you an idea of how this works. The procedure is similar in every other application.
From now on, using Lime Talk on your mobile device is very simple. Just be online on your IM account that is connected to your Lime Talk account, and your website’s visitors will see you online. You will receive a message in your IM application when someone tries to contact you. If you want to get offline, just sign out in your IM application.
