«As the developer of Monal I have decided to keep it free and not include ads and tracking software. How many people use Monal? A lot. Thousands and thousands of people all over the world (Hello, Antarctica!). However, all I know is what the Apple download/upgrade counter shows and what people tell me in emails.»
The XMPP client Monal sure sounds good!
