I am planning to write a messenger application for Ubuntu Showdown, which allows user to connect multiple Instant Messaging Services from within one application.

I am wondering if there is already some API available in Ubuntu Touch?

Also I am interested in exploring Friends, Online Accounts stuff, but not able to find enough info on it. Please direct me where can I find this?

Do you know libpurple? It's the backend which Pidgin uses. But this has nothing to do with Ubuntu touch. You can use every existing library working under linux for a Ubuntu Touch app. –  jP_wanN Aug 17 '13 at 10:52
