Colloquy + ZNC (for push) is GREAT!
I'm a longtime Colloquy user on Mac, but only recently have tried it on iOS. The thing that TRULY makes this usable though is ZNC integration, which enables me to stay online in my channels and get push notifications. I'm quite pleased with the combination, though for some this might prove a little challenging to set up on their own.
One thing I'm noticing, with some regularity, now that I have more networks and channels set up in ZNC, is that this client easily crashes if there are several buffers to scroll back. It seems to occur more frequently when additional chats open in the process -- such as when ZNC has reconnected and bots reply during login. If crashing wasn't such a problem I could easily go five stars on the rating.
And now I've learned of some competition. Palaver. It's missing some of Colloquy's bells and whistles. But it has two things that caused me to switch for now: (1) it doesn't crash. (2) it's developers are proactive and responsive with new builds.
Thanks for Killing a Perfectly Good App
Don't know what you guys did but haven't been able to connect for at least a month on Colloquy. Before the latest update, it constantly would say it could not connect. Now, the status thingy turns yellow when I try to connect and just sits. It doesn't even try to connect, just sits there. Please fix this or I want my money back. I didn't change even one setting. Stop trying to add new things without working out the already existing bugs.
Colloquy seems to be working fine now after the latest update. Haven't had weird graphical glitches yet either.
I still wish it wouldn't disconnect after 1-3 minutes just for being out of the app, but I know that is an iOS issue.
