Customer Reviews

it does what it needs to, but could do better

there's really no other way for me to connect to the client i use from my phone, and this app lets me connect to it. it's convent, but cant run in the background for longer than three minutes or so, which is a pain. group chats don't send a notification to your phone either. i liked using this app while i could, but now it suddenly refuses to connect to my client, (not sure if this is the client's end or the app's) so it's pretty much rendered useless to me now. it would help if setting up and using this app was clearer, or if there were actual directions on how to use it

Background running

There has to be a way to let this thing run in the background. If my twitter client can tell me when someone mentioned me even when it's closed, surely an irc client should be able to do it as well? It's extremely annoying that it keeps disconnecting me after 3 minutes just because I switched to another app. I use a bouncer but what's the point if my iPhone client disconnects?

Two nitpicks:

First, 1.5.1 made the home screen icon very low resolution and 1.5.2 has not addressed this.

Two, the enhancements added for dark themes (such as the black keyboard and darker title bars) do not work on iPad.
