Ratings and Reviews
Gets the job done, I guess
This app works, haven't had any crashes, but just doesn't meet the expectations in a client that supports quassel.
Basically everything that makes quassel nice is missing.
No lines to show where you were last reading, and doesn't update those lines on the desktop client, so there's a lot of unnecessary scrolling/reading when using them together. No ability to hide joins/quits etc, no blocking users, no auto fill for mentioning users (that I've seen).
I feel these items are a must, especially on a smaller screen.
Hopefully we'll see these features in a future release. But looks as if people have been asking for these things for a while, so who knows.
Otherwise, if someone out there has the time and know how, I would love to see (buy) another take on a quassel client.
Useful, but needs more features for the price
I'm using the iPod touch version. It's nice to be able to use Quassel on my mobile device, but it's not very configurable. For instance, it has no highlighting support. You can't change the colors. There's no user list that I can find. For $7, it needs to do this and more.
That being said, it's really useful. I like to be able to use Quassel on my mobile.
Not bad, but can be improved
It works like a very light weight client. However, it is missing features like highlight on keywords or highlight on handle and it doesn't run in the background, it has to be active to get alerts.
For costing money, you would think that this port would have at least the same features as the free desktop client.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
