Android jChat is an agent based chat application with GPS support for Android, based on the JADE agent framework.

It allows the user to communicate with any other contact having the same software running and connected to the same JADE platform. Users can send text IM in a chat like way, call a contact by phone or even send an SMS to a contact.

Moreover the position of each contact can be seen on the map at any time and it is continuously updated.

Features of jChat:

  • Contacts management: contacts are read from the phone contacts database.
  • Persistence: you can see the status of all contacts connected to your own JADE platform.
  • Real time localization: you can see the position of the contacts on the map and the distance from your current position. Localization uses the Android mocked GPS provider for tracking contacts position. You are able to import new custom tracks if you wish.
  • Multiple chat sessions handling: you can open multiple chat sessions with different contacts and switch between them.
  • Support for chat with many contacts in a single session.
  • Mocked SMS sending and phone call to contacts.

jChat4Android 1.0 is released as open source software according to the LGPL 2.1.
