Installing Live Chat on your iOS Mobile Application

You can install the ZohoSalesIQ Mobilisten SDK either using Cocoapods or by doing a manual installation using the Mobilisten Framework file


The iOS SDK is compatible with iOS version 11 and above; Xcode 13.0 and above is required as the development environment.

How to Embed the SDK into Your Mobile Application?

Install using Cocoapods:

Step 1: To add ZohoSalesIQ SDK to your app, you should add Mobilisten pod to the podfile.

Copied source ''
platform :ios, '9.0'

target 'Project Target' do
     pod 'Mobilisten'end


Mobilisten Compatibility Matrix:


Step 2: Once the required pods are added, open the terminal and run the following command from terminal

Copied pod repo update && pod install


Note:If you do not have a Podfile in your project directory or do not use Cocoapods, you can run the pod init command from the projects directory. This will create a new Podfile

Install Manually:


Step 1: In Project settings, under the General Tab, Under the Frameworks, Libraries, and Embedded Content section (or) Embedded Binaries(in older Xcode versions), Click the (+) button to add a new framework/xcframework.

Step 2: Click Add Other in the Choose frameworks and libraries to add option and click Add Files.. in the Choose frameworks or libraries to add menu.

Step 3: Select the Mobilisten.framework (or) Mobilisten.xcframework file to include the Mobilisten framework in your project. Once included, make sure you have selected Embed & Sign for the framework. Select Copy items if needed and if prompted in Destination.

Step 4: Link libicucore.tbd and libicucore.A.tbd

Step 5:If your project is a pure Objective-C project, Set Always Embed Swift Standard Libraries under Build Settings to YES

Step 6: Update Info.plist. Update the Info.plist file to include the below permissions for the application.

Step 7: After successful installation, import Mobilisten to your project

For Swift:

Copied import Mobilisten


For Objective-C:

Copied #import <Mobilisten/Mobilisten.h>


Step 8:  Initialize the SDK with the App key and Access keys for the bundle ID. The code will look as follows when the App key and Access key is inserted:

How to get the app and access key?

  • In SalesIQ dashboard, navigate to Settings > Brands > {Your brand} > Installation > iOS
  • Now, you can find the App and Access key below the Register app section. Copy the codes and paste them in the required places.

For Swift:

Copied ZohoSalesIQ.initWithAppKey(APP KEY, accessKey:  ACCESS KEY) { (completed) in }


For Objective-C:

Copied [ZohoSalesIQ initWithAppKey:APP KEY accessKey:ACCESS KEY completion:^(BOOL completed) { }];


Example on how to insert the code on your application:

Copied func application(application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [NSObject: AnyObject]?) -> Bool
     ZohoSalesIQ.initWithAppKey("Jve9A%2FFqxjnTjfT7YjHr3zKHoj4Prq6wXRmnJ", accessKey:"0Al2AB7GufM9S3GJmV1uUGGcony166WluKrtkzGYsozC0GsEEigVEDzfPtmmM0N8X")
      return true


By default, if you wish to display the Mobilisten Launcher/Chat Button in your application, then you can use the ZohoSalesIQ.showLauncher(true) API

Once the code is embedded, you can view the Launcher on your application.
