Any alternatives to Scringo?

Almost all of my apps use Scringo and with it shutting down soon are there any alternatives? I can't code so if anyone is looking for work and can help me integrate some kind of chat room or rooms into my apps for payment lets me know... Thanks!

I just replaced Scringo in my app "Universal Orlando Tour Guide". If all you want is the chat functionality, this solution from MrDavid worked perfectly for my needs: https://www.buzztouch.com/forum/thread.php?tid=144F1D82714B053D91BE059 To see it in action, tap the "live chat" tab in my app. The app is located here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/universal-orlando-tour-guide/id857178975?mt=8 Even though it's meant for "comments", almost forum style, it works great as a live chat. Granted, you lose some of the Scringo functionality, like radar, etc, but for simply letting the users chat, this is a great option. I've probably used this in more of my apps than any other plugin or add on.

I agree. I just spent 2 months creating an app only to have apple tell me they will never approve it, so that sucks, but I can Reskin it to get approved. It was a virtual medical marijuana garden, where the plants grow in real time. Guess the official release will be a vegetable garden, as Apple says cannabis related apps are fine, unless it's in the games or entertainment category. :( Yeah, I love your php comments script... I use it all the time. A couple of simple text edits, upload to the server, and just point to it. Simple, functional, and extremely versatile. In the universal orlando app alone, I use it in 3 different ways, which all look unique to the end user. I use it for live chat, app feedback, and ride/attraction reviews.

Yup, I was keeping that little gem hidden for 2 years before posting it here. Thought I use Socialize's commenting and chat way more these days, both are great solutions. Bummer to hear about your rejection, reskin, retry, make some money. Good luck. mrDavid

Darn it, forgot about Angry Ninja's app. My kids were just there in December! Bought the app just now for the memories. :-) -- Niraj

Haha... I just went down there last week to take new pics and videos, and to update any menu price changes. Keep an eye out for new content appearing in the app soon via silent update. Gotta love the fact that the whole trip can be written off as a business expense. ;)

Im looking for someone to help integrate anything that might replace the chat rooms for Scringo in an app of mine. I have a large amount of people that chat within the chat rooms and with the service shutting down in a week or so I am kind of screwed... I have been trying to integrate socialize and a couple of others but I don't know what I am doing :) I am willing to pay for help! please email me at appsteam70@yahoo.com

What is an example of your apps, post a link or PM me the links? Then we will understand your complete objectives.

Mr David, I am wondering if you could help me with integrating Socialize into my IOS apps... I have sent messages and don't think they are going thru to you. If I could get a team viewer session with you to show me how to do it to one app I could pay for the session obviously. Thank you

@Bytewizard - Sinch is mostly VoIP (perhaps more to it than I know though) and they use PubNub.com for their signal protocol (connect, disconnect, dial, ring, hangup, etc). DISCLAIMER: I know because I work for PubNub. And if there are any motivated BT plugin developers, I'd be happy to collaborate with you to create a PubNub BT Plugin. The most basic thing would be a chat plugin but there are so many things you could do with PubNub in a BT plugin. My limitation is I have never developed a plugin. I've looked into it but haven't ever invested the time to actually create one.
