"Crosstalk is a simple, powerful XMPP client that is easy to set up and just works. Using it with Google Talk is a wonderful way to go. I love its support of background messaging on the iPhone 4, and as a universal app, I can have it on my iPad, where it is awesome....I've also been using it for Facebook chat, and it's great for that."

"Best XMPP app out there! I've got it logging me into Google talk, my company's IM server, and my own OpenFire XMPP server. Works great, even when you're logged in from your desktop too."
