What's New

Version 4.2.2

This is a quick bug/crash fix release, previous release notes after this list

• Choosing an emoji from the suggestions list no longer creates a @mention on Slack connections
• Double-tapping to zoom an image should now work properly on small images
• Uploading an image should no longer send the URL multiple times
• Fixed an issue that could cause the app to disconnect unexpectedly if a nick on your ignore list sends a PM


It's been a while! We've got quite a few fixes in this version as well as a new feature we're trying out.

Public Avatars

You can now choose an image to use as a public avatar visible to other IRCCloud users. Take a photo or choose a picture from your account settings screen and make sure you have both the "User icons" and "Avatars" settings enabled in the "Message Layout" settings.

Faces can make IRC a friendlier place, but feel free to just use a picture of your dog or favourite eldritch symbol if you prefer!

New release, new bugs.


Major bug when using IRCCloud is the typing bar isn’t sitting on top of keyboard as it should instead it blocks view of next message and then shows the Unread Messages button to scroll down. This is a major annoyance like most bugs, lets squash it!

Solved the push notifications


This one is perfect, spent all day trying to solve the notification to IOS issues. Perfect, good work.

Still waiting on 3rd party client support


Wonderful app and BNC. Just needs the 3D party client support that was mentioned several years ago.
