Challenges and Solutions
Working with Core Data
It consisted of the fact that you could have users in the contact list but not in the chat list. As it turned out, the whole problem was that it was necessary to configure the search parameters and restrictions in Core Data so that the requested information is displayed correctly.
All this is fixed easily, with the help of settings, but it was vital to understand what the problem was in the first place.
Unstable mobile network
The difficulty was that Twilio itself works fine, while the status of establishing synchronization may hang. It means that the user can not do anything in the chat, neither sending nor receiving. And for everything to work again, the user would have to restart the application. We didn’t want this to be the case.
To get around it, we decided to register the logic manually inside the application in case Wi-Fi goes missing or synchronization is not set. When this happens, the application will restart the Twilio Chat Client without the user having to force the process.
