I really wanted to like this app. ithas a lot of great features, but I feel likeI wasted my money. I am an op in a chatroom, so logging is kind of a big deal for me, especially if I need to reference a log later. This app says it does that, however, with the option selected, it stil isn't saving chat logs, and every time I am on, I have to remember to select it again. That is my Major complaint. the minor ones are that it doesn't recognize the chat colors and just randomly assigns it's own. if I could even set certain people to use certain colors, it woulnd't be so bad, but the haphazzard way it selects colors is frustrating and annoying. It also has issues with people DC and reconnecting, and sometimes shows multiples of the same name after a while. and finally, the chat tabs at the top for different channels are the width of the name of the channel, or nick of a person you query. as a result, short channel names get closed accidentally a LOT, and the same obviously goes for short nicks. my attempts to get support hanv't worked, and I did what it said to do, and sat in an empty chatroom. Very unsatisfied with this app.
Normally great, but...
Been using this app for a few months now, and it has served me great until recently. The latest OS update has made this app instantly crash on startup. Please fix!
All of my devices every time it starts to load then crashes. Uninstalled reinstalled. Guessing is because they have not updated in a long time so not fully compatible with current OS.
