What's New in Version 1.4.2
* Full Blowfish support (/setkey /delkey, as well as /keyx for key exchange in queries) for all iPhone and iPod Touch devices
Very basic functionality. Nothing special.
I purchased this app because I love the Mac version. Sadly, this app is nothing like its Mac counterpart. There a place to add servers and channels and a place to chat, but that's about it. Interface feels very outdated. For now I will keep using Colloquy.
This app needs serious work
I don't know if it's an iOS 5 issue regarding the problems with this app. But I cannot see what I type, or what anyone else is typing on any channels on undernet. Other servers are hit and miss. This problem keeps persisting with irregularity. Sometimes I can see, but most of the time I cannot.
Purchased the desktop app from the Mac App Store & loved it, it's a shame the iPhone app can't live up to that standard. The notifications don't work thus logging me off without a 10min warning dialog. Please fix!
