Customer Reviews

finally fixed, please keep it that way

After nearly a year of aggravation and multiple bug fixes they do seem to have it fixed at last with 1.8.5, at least as far as the issues I've seen. It's back to where it was two years ago, and that's a good thing. Best IRC app I've tried. Now ... I'm begging you ... please please please test future updates before you release them?

I want to like it...

I use Colloquy on my laptop so I decided to download it for my phone too. It worked great at first. Easy to set up and use.

I got sidetracked on another app for 5 minutes or so, came back to Colloquy and I was disconnected from my room. Hit Join and it sits there with the spinning wheel in the top bar like something is actually working. Five minutes later, still sitting. I had to totally delete my whole connection I set up and re-set it up. Once again I was able to connect.

I decided to manually disconnect and try to rejoin to see if the same thing would happen and sure enough it did. I hit Join and it just sits there doing nothing.

Please fix this. With this type of bug it is definitely not worth the $1.99 I spent.


Finally working again for me. Thanks a lot!
