{{>toc}}

The goal of *Beem* is to provide a full featured and easy to use a Jabber/XMPP client on Android.

*Beem* is under constant development. Releases are usually frequent and driven by user contributions, such as bug reports and patches.

*Beem* is free and contains no ads. All our code is open source and licensed under the "GNU General Public License 3":http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html and any later version. This means you can get *Beem*'s code and modify it to suit your needs, as long as you publish the changes you make for everyone to benefit from as well.
