Ratings and Reviews

Doesn't work


This app doesn't work at all. I get the same issues as the other person who reviewed it. I cannot connect to any server without the app freezing. Please don't get it's a waste of money.

Absolutely Awesome

This application is absolutely fantastic, and totally worth the 2 bucks. The interface is beautiful, the configuration options are fantastic, and all the goodies like command and nick suggestion / completion and such make this app totally worth it. As mentioned, it's open source, but I don't at all mind they're charging a couple bucks for this awesome application (they really do deserve it). This is the best IRC client in the App Store currently, and it's highly unlikely you'll find many features that aren't included.

Absolutely Fantastic


Finally, social networking in the broader sense. A well polished app that has finally come into the mainstream on the iphone. Great support as well. Thanks Colloquy, keep up the great work!
