Pretty amazing for a free IRC Client
First, I would like to inform those that don't know that you can edit the server setting and connect to any IRC server in the world. Complaining about the people on the default setting is stupid. It just seems you are looking for a return to your glory days in AOL chat rooms. Moving on to the app itself; I really like it a lot. I use it everyday to talk to friends I play games with over the internet while communting on the trains around Tokyo. I like how in this version I don't get disconnected anymore when I am in a tunnel where there is no signal. As soon as I am in the station, it retrieves any messages I have missed, and sends mine. I also, like how I can now view links within the app. Great stuff. I would like to see it allow DCC chat with other users. It doesn't seem to have this feature, and if it does I can't find it. I would of gave this 5 stars if it had this feature. Thanks for building a solid free app. =)
Alright app could be better
It sends messages to your designated server and room. People get my messages and everything fine. However I have an additional server added and it has me join as two differnt usernames despite that it only sends from one which is probably a glitch. Also after you have joined a channel it is impossible to leave with that server still running. Overall nice app, good for irc when my comp is being used for fullscreen gaming but it lacks the features of a pc irc client and alot of control that I should have(can't delete their irc server only turn it off)
Beware it lies...
For what it is, this isn't horrible for a free app. It's missing some basic IRC functionality such as private messages and the ability to check info of IRC users, but those may be in a However, I have had one major problem with it. It seems to sometimes randomly decide users are in a channel who aren't there. When you're in invite-only channels, this is a scary moment as you think someone without permission is in there. This is enough to get me to stop using it because I need accuracy out of a product like this.
