App works fine if you know what your doing


I wanted a mirc program to connect to an irc server and it does connect. I use iPhone 5s works fine. Nothing fancy as irc never has been fancy. And if your getting an error it's not the app it likely the settings. New users to irc don't stop trying setting can be tricky if you don't know how. Most mirc programs do not hand hold you through setup never have. It requires reading! Google it as they say. Program works as a mirc program should. Nothing more nothing less. Great to see. I see some say doesn't work as intended? Of coarse not if you intended something more then what the description says then why did you download it to begin with? Works as it says as mirc. Thank you Mango good product. 5 stars.

App just doesn't work


I tried to use this app on iOS 8.0.2 and it just will not open. I was hoping I wouldn't have to pay for an irc app, as the reviews for even the best paid apps are kinda negative. I'll give this another chance for sure but it needs to work, and do so like iMessages with push notices on name mention. Settings for automatic authentication via command sent after connection would be cool, and setting timeout so you don't get kicked off after a minute would be awesome too.

Good luck, I hope you can make this app the best of the best soon! :)

Just remembered why I uninstalled this app


I believe it was close to a year ago that I uninstalled this app from my previous phone. I'd since forgotten why, assuming it was the horrible UI and orientation lock that was the problem. But having reinstalled it I remember now that my problem was that it crashed on the splash screen... a fatal error the app STILL has after all this time. Do yourself a favor, don't get this pared-down freemium version and certainly don't give these people your hard-earned money for the full version of their halfassed app.
